This, is not in reading order. All good stuff but not in order.

Reading order for recent Thor issues is kinda odd. JMS started his run with Thor Vol. 3 #1 - 13 (I think) but then from there the volume shifted to original numbering for the 600th issue and ran from 600 - 623 (I think) with Kieron Gillen taking over as writer starting around #604. Then the book shifted titles to "Journey Into Mystery" and Thor got a new title "The Mighty Thor" which ran for 22 issues by Matt Fraction. After that the most recent run (currently on going) is called "Thor: God of Thunder" written by Jason Aaron. Its currently up to issue 5.

You can read Fraction's "Mighty Thor" if you really want to, but I'd personally just look at online scans for that. The story is so atrociously bad that it's hard to read. Well, the stories he wrote in and of themselves are good, the concepts are good, the dialogue is so absurdly bad and out of character for anyone other than psychotic blood and thunder Thor though that it made it almost unbearable for me lol. He regressed Thor to Ages of Thunder Thor basically, which he wrote well because that was the attitude Thor was supposed to have. Not adult, hero, ex king Thor though. JMS, Gillen, and current Aaron though are all very good reads that you should go for.

And are theses comics modern Thor because i have been looking at other reading orders and they have essential Thor or masterworks Thor etc

for Thor origin I would look for the Thor essentials Vol. 1. Then go to Thor #159, then Thor Annual #11. You might have to look these up in either the essentials collections or the marvel masterworks collections, although Thor annual #11 probably isn't to expensive. The I would suggest looking up the Thor: If Asgard Should Perish series or possibly jump ahead to the Thor: Ragnarok series to get some back story on Thor saving Asgard and his father all the while learning about Loki and his twisted ways to take control of Asgard. This should get you started from here you could probably read up on his involvement with the Avengers and then jump into any story you want. I would suggest buying the collected novels just cause I think you get the most for your money and all the issues for that story are right there.

Thor vol. 1 starts in the 60's and goes to the 90's then after that there's three more vol. that are all modern and then there's the modern journey into mystery. The graphic novels are best for old stuff though.

I highly recommend Walt Simonson's run on Thor if you're looking for some classic stuff.

But essential Thor volume 1 is not on comixology so instead should i read marvel masterworks Thor volume 1 as i heard they have the same stories. Also on comixology marvel masterworks Thor only goes to volume 1 so that comics are on there that has the same story.
