i like the art

Posted by SavageDragon

I read this in the Marvel NOW preview issue. It shows previews of Cap, Iron Man, FF, Fantastic 4, First X men, SHe Hulk, Thor, and X men Legacy. They were free at my LCS Flying Colors comics.

This Thor title, The first X men and the new Thunderbolts, and maybe Cable's X-force are the titles that interest me in the Marvel Now line.

Ribic's art looks great.

Consider me intrigued.

3 words that makes this comic a must buy

Posted by zackattack529

wow..that art. gorgeous!

Is Jason Aaron a good writer though???

Posted by Reignmaker

Looks sweet. Kinda makes me sad that I don't have the extra money to invest in Marvel comics.

Posted by Lvenger

That art's gorgeous and it's nice to see Aaron back on form.

Posted by yo_yo_fun

Thanks for the preview!

I might pick up the 1st issue and try it out.

Posted by Necrotic_Lycanthrope

Freaking love the art (reminds me of Frazetta in a way). But after Aaron's run on Incredible Hulk, I'm not sure I can trust him handling any Marvel superhero that doesn't have foot long retractable claws and a hairdo that makes even Medusa jealous.

Posted by DATNIGGA

not sure how i feel about this ill read it tho

Posted by longbowhunter

I love the premise for the first arc and it goes without saying the art is amazing.

Posted by tomlikesfries

Wow. The art really is astounding and so is Aaron (not talking only about Thor, but a great part of his work). I wasn't sure before, but now, I'll definitely give this comic a shot.

Posted by Cavemold

Saw this in the preview book . Love the art, can't wait read it next month

Thou loves the way Thor speaks
Posted by TylerTheDestroyer

Wow awesome din't know that Thor could use mjilnor as a flash light, i wonder what else he could use it for?

Posted by Smurfboy

Wow, pretty good. VERY tempted to pull that issue #1 out. I have so many issues to follow upcoming next month! Gambit, FF #1, Wolverine MAX, All-New X-Men and several others I might forget.

Jason is an awesome writer. I enjoyed following him in Wolverine and the X-Men.

love thor but the art sucks

Posted by Smurfboy

I hope Marvel can show us the inside look of Captain America, Iron Man and Hulk soon. I've been wondering what they look like inside the comics.

Posted by War Killer

This looks awesome, can't wait to read this new series!!! ^_^

Posted by JoseDRiveraTCR7

Finally, I can read Thor again. Bye, Fraction.

Posted by cc1738

Posted by MisterKetch

Hmmmm, Thor teaming up with his past and future self still sounds incredibly stupid to me and "the god butcher" im rollin my eyes marvel (though not as bad as Miss Thing in FF).

The art though, I think I can get behind it enough to give the first issue or two a try.

What?!?! ::rubbing my eyes::: Am I seeing something?

Posted by sora_thekey

WHY!? I had my mind set to not buying this series... Now that I've read this preview I want to read it!

Posted by LordRequiem

The cover is atrocious, but the artwork inside looks pretty cool. Not too sure about his plain chest piece though.

Posted by bunkerbuster05

At first, I wasn't behind Marvel Now.

Now, I am. GET IT?!

No but really, most of the new books look neat. Picking up Cap, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Avengers and Fantastic Four.

The preview for FF didn't make me hate it, either. Miss-Thing looks awful, but Allred's art might make me do it.

Your comic shop should have a preview book for free. I got it 2 weeks ago, and it has previews for Cap, Thor (this one), Iron Man, Hulk, Fantastic Four and FF.

Posted by RoboShark

Wow I'm hooked (No pun) Aaron got me reading Hulk. Looks like I'm gonna be reading Thor too now.

Posted by TheCheeseStabber

...So buying this...

Incredible art.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Wow the art is just simply stellar! And I'm intrigued by this "God Butcher" character now... O_o

Posted by AngeTheDude

Love the art and I can't wait for Aaron's take. However, it looks like people are tired of drawing his new armor :P

Posted by Ferro Vida

Pretty much what I expected from Jason Aaron.

Posted by movieartman

@MisterKetch: HE IS NOT TEAMING UP WITH OTHER VERSIONS OF HIMSELF the book Takes place in 3 time periods of thors life when he encountered the new villain there is no time travel, no thor from other times meeting

Posted by movieartman

@LordRequiem: other than thors face what the hell is possibly bad about the cover???

your one of thoose anti alex ross hipsters that hates painted comic art arent you :(

Posted by cincyducksfan35

Looks great, just don't know if I can afford it. $4 and I bet they will be double shipping it each month. $8 is a lot each month for one series.

Posted by Aiden Cross

I'm intruiged.. And i'm not even a Thor fan.

Posted by comicfan123

I've really wanted to get into Thor for a while...this looks good enough to be a great start! =)

On a side note, anyone else think Thor's arms in the first photo look like Thanksgiving Day turkeys? 'Cause those things are just huge...

Posted by MisterKetch

@movieartman:Well since thats the case I'm more on board with this comic then.

Posted by flickerlighter

I'm not a fan of Thor, or any avenger book, but I tried before with journey into mystery, and well I kind of like Thor over there, his little cameos. So I think I'll try this one. Yeah the art looks quite good.
