Users who pulled this comic:


  1. The previews look amazing, but alas I am trade waiting … **sad face**

    • Man, you don’t know what you are missing out on! This book and Avengers are at the top of my list every time!

    • Oh, I know what I am missing out on, I just can’t afford to pay 3.99. I can pay the trade cause its cheaper per issue. I did buy the first issue and it was amazing.

  2. Great book but I kinda wish they would have moved on to a new villain. I just don’t find god killer to be an intriguing antagonist, plus his origin was weak.

    • There is a lot of “religion” commentary in this title with Gorr as the antagonist that, when opened to it, really changed my perception of the book. My reread of the first arc had a whole new layer to it. Also, I liked the origin and have been wondering what role his “son” will play going forward. How does he view his dad’s god-like nature? How will he feel when the god of thunder comes to save the day? How will all these different timelines be resolved? I like BIG arcs as much as small arcs, and I like them both more than formulaic 6 issue arcs (they usually feel either rushed or fluffed). Hope you like this issue.

    • I found Gorr’s origin to be fascinating and insightful. I understand his rage against gods after last issue.

    • Totally understand and I totally appreciate his hated of the gods, but the way he got his powers were cliche . I’ve lost everything, I’m dying and BAM you now have god killing powers. Just wished he was more interesting then the run of the mill revenge setup.

    • I hear you Frank, but I can’t get onboard. I think visually he looks great, and his actions have made him one of the most compelling new villains I can think of. Add on top of that the Atheism angle and it’s pretty intriguing. Did I need his origin issue? Nope, I think mystery might have worked better(see Thanos), but all-in-all Gorr is a big hit for me.

      This is probably my favorite straight-out superhero title, although the Illuminati book is great too, and I respect what is going on in Hawkeye. Sorry DC, not feeling you right now.

    • The way he got his powers was a bit of a dux ex machina or even a miracle if you will.
      To me, the way he got his powers was tragicly poetic. After his mother died, he has strived his entire life to survive and protect/feed his wife, children and unborn child. Praying for a miracle the whole while and it wasn’t until he lost everything and wanted to die that something miraculous actually happened. How ironic.
      And presumably after he has butchered all the gods, he’ll commit suicide or have his son kill him. I find none of this to be commonplace.

  3. One of my favorite Marvel NOW! books…keep this train going!

  4. I cant wait, this is usually my most anticipated book every month.

  5. The best Thor book since JMS’ run, and I can see it ending up much better than that.

  6. two words, “Esad Ribic”

  7. I want more Old Man Thor!!!!

  8. I’m saying right now: Essad Ribic is the heir apparent to Moebius

  9. This IS the best book by Marvel right now (and my favorite from any publisher)! This will be the first title since Darwin Cooke’s DC:The New Frontier that I will be ‘double-dipping’ and getting the singles and the trades as they are released. Hats off to Aaron, Ribic and team!

  10. Ribic has returned! The gods themselves have looked down in favor upon this book.

  11. One of Marvel’s top books, only bettered by Hawkeye and FF.

  12. If my Thor lore is low and buy the first trade of this series when it’s out, will I be lost? I mean I saw the movie like anyone else but aside from that I never read a single Thor book in my life…

  13. Great issue. Esad Ribic is amazing!
