I don’t usually put a gif at the top of my reviews, but I couldn’t resist. Hail Satan!

This volume's smack dab in the middle of Fraction’s post-Fear Itself run, which means Thor was dead (again) and now he’s all better but in the comics “dead” and “all better” are relative terms, so just go with it. Loki’s a kid, but doesn’t figure much in the proceedings.

This one starts off with a prelude involving the swapping of Thor stories between Sif and Volstagg, with the best tale having Thor in drag as a
I picked this up from the library as I am reading Journey into Mystery and at the end it ties in with the Thor title so I thought I'd read some to catch up. Plus I like Matt Fraction.

Well I really enjoyed this book, I read it through in one go. This book as a lot to do with dreams. It has several little story lines which all come together at the end. It was a really good, quick paced read. Looking forward to finishing Journey into Mystery now but a little sad my library doesn't have the other vo

There comes a time when an artist has to simply cease trying to impress the audience and say with finality, "I'm doing this for me, no one else. Screw it! I'm having a good time!"

Finally, finally, finally, Matt Fraction either took that advice or discovered it through personal reflection and started to do the work with The Mighty Thor solely for himself.

I was not even remotely impressed by his previous handling of this character and now I am - About Freakin' Time - with Volume 3.

I was eager to read Fraction's Thor series after his highly entertaining Thor: The World Eaters. Volume 1 was a solid start and volume 2 built on that potential. And this is a strong conclusion to the series.

Volume 3 opens with a brief story of Volstagg and Sif retelling a couple of Thor's youthful adventures, with the key point being how Loki manipulated the hero, despite the positive outcomes. Both are certain the reincarnated child Loki will grow to be the same man he was before. This was an

A rather average story arc; definitely not Fraction's best writing. The metal head kid that starred in the main story was an embarrassingly bad character—like something a dad would dream up to make fun of his metal loving child.

Definitely starting to lose interest in Fraction's Thor stuff. It's all just "fine." Whenever I finish one of these, I'm kind of glad that it's over, even though it's not like I hated it the entire time I was reading it. He's just not doing anything very interesting with the character or the world, and some of the "big ideas" he's been using feel stale, like they were done better in other mythological comics.

In this one, we're introduced to The Mare, a race of creepy-looking, Lovecraftian monste

Matt Fraction's Thor run suffers from good ideas implemented badly, and none so much as this third volume.

There are some clever concepts, such as the Mares and Don Blake's existential crisis that would make great stories if fleshed out better, but instead get resolved much too quickly and progress with some really odd plot points, especially the conclusion.

The artwork from Kitson and Larraz is excellent however, saving this from a 2 star rating. The Asgardians are attractive, the Mares are scary

Art is good. Plot is a neat idea, but I think it could have been executed better. 2.5 / 5 stars.

The Mares is freed and Thor has to fight a race who communicates though dreams.

While this is slightly better than Tanarus arc I feel that Fraction simply has no idea how to handle Thor series. Where I liked Galactus Seed and thought World Eaters are ok the Thor just stopped making sense after the finale of Fear itself.
This arc just like the last one is hectic, proper dialog is either non-existent or crazy and makes almost no sense and overall Fraction somehow completely kills any continuity Thor ever had without even explaining how or why.

Though I was the rare reader who liked most of Fraction's run, I was let down by this final standalone volume. Battling dreams creating by dream creatures is almost never interesting because of the innate pointlessness of it. Then, there's the Blake plot. It started off interesting, and in the end it destroyed everything that had come before.

So part of this volume was dull and part left a bad taste in my mouth.

A crossover with, of all things, the Mountain Goats song 'The Best Ever Death Metal Band In Denton' (albeit relocated here to Broxton). Not as good as sister book Journey into Mystery's introduction of a robot Tony Wilson as a supporting character.

This was a definite lull in the Matt Fraction story line which dimmed out even more in "Everything Burns," but that had a few more redeemable moments than this did. It was kind of kiddy and weird.

"How he got started in comics: In 1983, when Fraction was 7 years old and growing up in Kansas City, Mo., he became fascinated by the U.S. invasion of Grenada and created his own newspaper to explain the event. "I've always been story-driven, telling stories with pictures and words," he said.

Education and first job: Fraction never graduated from college. He stopped half a semester short of an art
