A solid collection of one offs.
Not often I put a book on both the Christian bookshelf and the dragon bookshelf.

I only started reading Marvel comics in the past year. I've been trying to read the major "event" storylines, but have also been picking up individual Thor collections since he is my favorite Avenger. I chose this collection because the price was low and it is a stand-alone; e.g. you don't need other books in order to understand what is going on. The four stories collected here are all tied together by the question "what is Thor's purpose and why is he here"?

In the first story, Asgard is under a

I picked up this book after seeing a sample of a the short story about the priest getting his faith shaken by Thor's presence on earth. The rest of the book was fantastic, since it showed different facets of Thor-the ruthless warrior, the thoughtful comfort at the end of someone's life and the ruler prepared to do what he needs to in order to preserve his kingdom and people.

The art was well done, although I don't understand the obsession that people have with drawing Thor so massive and bulky. I

While I did not find the first story especially strong (the art style was difficult to understand and overall too sparse and stiff to be impressive, and the story itself was too simplistic and parable-esque), this volume got stronger with the reader. I loved how Jenkins explored these very mature issues of reconciling one's shaken faith and honoring one's fallen opponent and set them in very mythical and yet very Marvel universes. The final story, "The Dragon of Dolgellau," I especially loved ...more

This is a good read for different lenses in which to view the God of thunder but no story really comes to a conclusion. They are snippets that are only connected in how disconnected they are from each other.

The art was done well but did not strike me as memorable in any way. The first story has the gods dressed as you would imagine from reading the legends but the rest have thor in his modern attire while the others remain in their legendary garb.

A fun read but no real meat to chew on in this o

I hardly ever buy floppies anymore, reading a story over multiple months just isn't any fun for me anymore.

Which is why I like that they publish stories in collected form these days, which allows me to read a story from start to finish without having to wait months in between chapters.

And then we have this book, which is basically a collection of four different monthly stories collected into a single hard cover volume.

The four stories are nice, but not great, though short.
The art is nice as well

This was a series of four single-issue stories of a far more philosophical nature than Thor comics tend to contain. It was interesting to see Thor treated more as a god, rather than an alien, but I found the author's thoughts didn't quite match up with my own. Still, they were interesting thought experiments, nonetheless. Thor's powers are a bit more nebulous than they often are, and some of these stories reminded me of Superman stories I have read, but overall, they were interesting stories ...more

Recommends it for: fans of these fine creators, Marvel Comics, mythology and superhero comics
Recommended to Brent by: these fine creators and Atlanta-Fulton Public Library
I will read almost anything written by Paul Jenkins: here is an example of his thoughtful scripting. Four stories, four artist collaborators: these are about as good as Thor gets, or has gotten in recent years.
Highly recommended.

I loved every single story in this collection, they were all told beautifully. I only wish there was more in the collection!

"Ask Me Tomorrow" in issue 3 is by far one of the best Thor stories I have read. The collection is worth it, if for that alone.
