Common, It's Thor!
I really love Thor's character. I've never read a Thor series before so I was looking for a good set of comics about the character to read. The newest series, "Thor" looked really good but my eye caught "The Mighty Thor." Honestly the reason it caught my eye was because John Romita Jr.'s name and art were on the cover. I'll pretty much buy anything John Romita Jr. does. I don't think I've ever read anything that he did the art for that wasn't good.
I'm new to the Thor story line so I don't know much about the characters but I know enough to get by (thanks to the Incredible Hulk and Thor movie with Bill Bixby [R.I.P] and Lou Ferrigno).
Honestly, this is a starting issue so I realize it'll be slow, but there were a few things that bothered me. I didn't really see the connection, but you never really find out who Thor accidently released when he threw his hammer (at least in this issue) into the rubble. I assume that was the Destroyer but in this issue that's not real clear. The other thing was (and I know this is for story sake but still) is that Thor "is" a god. That always makes me chuckle that a "god" could have done something on accident or be beaten. Even for the sake of good story-telling I can understand if Thor had been slown down or delayed, but beaten? But that's just me. Don't get me wrong! I really like the story and will most assuredly be buying the following issues but those were just little splinters in the thumb of my enjoyment.
Overall I give this a 4 outta 5. Story desrves a three in my opinion but the art is so beautiful that I'd raise the score up a notch.
