What do people think of the new Thor book?
Personally I enjoyed it, I love Ribic's art.
Honestly? It was perfect. I am super pumped for what's next. In my opinion, Thor has been downplayed a lot these past few years, and hasn't been quite as humble and God-like since JMS's run. He didn't say anything stupid in this comic, and I think Aaron really sees the true Thor and brings it out well.
me and the guys over at my Podcast, loved it and our review reflects that. and none of us read thor on normal basis
I disliked it. Thor without the old english grammar just doesn't fit.
I also like when he speaks old English, but even so I think he's written well in this book.
It's still sophisticated and somewhat old-timey, but doesn't have the 'thy' and 'thee's.
Loved issue 1 save for some of the goofy faces early on. I had almost no hope for Aaron in this series considering how bad his Hulk run was and I am not fond of much of his writing outside of Wolverine and very few X-Men like Warbird, Shadowcat, Kid Omega and Iceman. He gave the right feel to Thor in every single timeline and the art on average was awesome. I do wish they would give Thor his chainmail back. I don't mind the new outfit at all as it is better than his original attire (not a huge fan of Thor's original appearance) but if he could armor like he did in the Avengers, I would be quite pleased.
finally...The God of Thunder has come back to the marvel Universe!!
A very solid beginning to this book, It really gave you a glimpse of who Thor was, past, present and future
1) answering the little girls prayers was subtle but gave great insight into his abilities, and reminds you that he is a GOD
2) "Did you say Ale?" Thor does love him some Ale, huh?
3) The once and future kind charging into battle...brought a smile to my face as I thought.." Now, THAT is what THOR is all about"
Great first issue, sucked me in with a tasty mystery that spans centuries, No double page spreads of him shouting for the glory of asgard! or thing's like that
but the moments that where depicted where subtle but showed what he can do
Oh, and the art is AWESOME, THOR finally looks like Thor, dude is JACKED, his arms look amazing, like you know when he hits you with the hammer, it WILL hurt, no questions about it
