Users who pulled this comic:


  1. Feels like forever since the last issue (double shipping is really doing a number on my expectations), but I’ve really been enjoying Esad Ribic’s work, so it’s worth the wait!

  2. Been waiting for this for next issue for awhile now. Loving the direction of Thor right now.

  3. Fantastic book. Can’t wait for this issue.

  4. Great series so far, and I’m not usually a Thor fan.

    • I know what you mean. Two of my least favorite Marvel characters, Hawkeye and Thor, are my two favorite Marvel books. Luckily Greg Land is doing art for Iron Man so I don’t have to worry about my other least favorite character attracting my attention lol

  5. I am going to go ahead and make this my Pick of the Week now.

  6. Kept passing this up until the LCS had 50% off so I picked up the first four and they were awesome. Definitely on board for this one. Very well written even when it jumps between the different Thors it feels seamless . Love the story, love the art.

  7. I can’t wait to see Old Thor and Present Day Thor team up and kick some ass. What a fun book.

  8. This gives USM a run for it’s money as my favorite Marvel book.

  9. LOVE this. I never gave a crap about Thor until this. The art is astounding. I don’t know how he keeps up the pace.

  10. Tried Thor here and there over the past few years, never clicked with me. This, however, grabbed me immediately and has rocketed to being one of my most anticipated books. Can’t wait to see where Aaron goes with this title.

  11. Bloody brilliant issue. I don’t think I blinked even once throughout the whole thing. Where did I put those eye drops.. I need to read this again.

  12. I’d give this 6 stars if I could… or 600. Loved everything about it. Esad Ribic is a god! (shhh… nobody tell Gorr).

  13. I give this a 5 not because the story ended, but because as I got to the last page I realized I wasn’t going to get the big payoff and….it was okay. The ride was awesome.

    I think we’ll still get the “end” of Gorr,but maybe not. I really want Thor to kick his ass (did I just type that?)

    Aaron has done a great job of making care about what happens to these three Thors.

    I really enjoyed Gorr’s manifesto, if you will. Very sharp writing.

    And the art….my GOD, the art. Is sooooo good, so epic (I mean it). The coloring is the key I think.

    It’s like a whole painted Frazetta comic, but better.

    I hope this team never breaks up.

  14. The only fault I have with this is the occasional panel reusing. We saw the exact image of gorr turning his head twice, and in previous issues I’ve noticed the same thing happening with other panels. Not enough to be seriously annoying, but it does take me out of the story when it happens.

  15. My LCS sold out of the first few issues, I have to wait for the trade dammit

  16. I love the fact that right from the get go, we’re getting a really epic storyline. Easily the first book I read when I get it.

  17. Art solid as ever. Growing a bit tired of the story, was kind of hoping for more of a wrap up this issue.

  18. Astounding. Every calculated word and every pencil-stoke are perfect.

  19. Anybody else noticing the atheism vs religion theme in this book? It’s evident from the beginning (the barren, godless world of Indigarr, Thor bringing life), but Gorr’s speech this issue really drives it home. He is a God hater (I have heard his story told by ex-believers, “where were the gods when I needed them most?”) as much as a butcher trying to rid the Universe of all worship. I’m not here to talk about beliefs, but just wanted to see if anyone else has noticed. This is an awesome book.

    • I’d consider that the driving theme. A lot more of that in #6.

    • That’s good to hear. It’s a really interesting subject to deal with especially in a book about a god. Aaron has done a good job with it too. Showing a variety of views and even giving Thor doubt in the elder Gods at times. Looking forward to more of this series. It’s been a very pleasant surprise.

    • “I’m not here to talk about beliefs, but just wanted to see if anyone else has noticed.”

      @the WAC1 – its kinda difficult not to mention religion when talking about a story line that involves a character referred to as a god butcher, but I know what you mean.

      This has been an awesome five issues and I can’t wait for more. Aaron and Ribic’s Thor feels like they created the character. Everything just feels right in their hands!

  20. Best Marvel book .. even in a crowd of good marvel books currently coming out with the marvel now relaunches. Arron can be he hit or miss but i agree with a few others who have posted. If there was a better than 100 percent rating this book would get it from me. Its actually been scarey at times.

  21. I don’t feel like much happened in this issue. It just covered ground that was already covered in previous issues and ended without progressing the story. It was still enjoyable, but not as strong as previous issues which is why I gave it a 3.

  22. This is fantastic and I’m buying the trade when it comes out. Thought it was ending with #5, but even in #4 I kept thinking “There is NO way to wrap this in one issue.” Glad they didn’t. As much as I want to see Thor(s) kick the crap out of Gorr, I don’t want this arc to end.
