My first Thor comic. I’d heard Marvel had replaced the original Thor with a female character, and subsequently that some people lost their minds. I’m not one of them. Let’s get to it!
This books cover is just vibrant. Full of bright pinks, greens and blues it immediately catches the eye. Then you get into the details. Russell Dauterman and Matthew Wilson did a great job creating a cover that is eye-catching and also full of detail. This thing pops at you!
This book looks good, especially Sindr. Valerio Schiti does 99% of the work here and makes this fire goddess look both seductive and dangerous. Both Thor’s’ look good, as do all the fire goblins. The only things that don’t look awesome are Loki and Malekith, but they aren’t in it for long. This book is full of fire and conflict, and the colouring team did a great job. All in all, it looks good!
So, I jumped into the deep end on this one. Apparently there are multiple Thors, as it is now a title bestowed by the hammer Mjolnir. I’m cool with this. Apparently multiple hammers, as there is a second from an alternate dead universe. Also cool. The Thor with the primary Marvel Universe Mjolnir is female, but both a complete badass and a paragon of honour, going so far as to save the child of Sindr from the grief mad and vengeance obsessed other Thor. Excellent. Though I am clearly missing out a lot on where the story is in The Mighty Thor series, I found this to be a fun issue to jump in on, and I like this Thor. She’s honourable and tough as nails. She’s what Thor should be. I would definitely recommend it, though I think I would advise buying a few of the previous issues too.
