This review will be short and sweet because well it was a graphic novel so there is not much to say about it. I enjoy Thor as a hero but I must say that I prefer his brother Loki. He is very cunning and entertaining as he will always throw a loop into Thor’s plans which keeps the storyline flowing.

I feel like there could have been a bit more action and less narration in this comic but overall it was set up for future issues so that is understandable. The art was pretty great! I always marvel at

Recommends it for: Thor fans
Thor's reign in Asgard is interesting to read as Jurgens, Bennett, and Raney deliver a good Thor book. The Grey Gargoyle is misused here and Jake Olsen and Tarene are both still present (not a fan). This story could be the new status quo and its intriguing, especially with Asgardian politics. The art is very good but the story has too many repetitive notes. Overall, a decent book and an intriguing beginning. ...more

Enjoyed the story a little more than expected (some interesting plotlines in the works!), and the art was really nice. The characters still use the old fashioned "thou and thee" kind of language though so that felt a bit distracting. ...more

3.5. Starting to rev up and see what Thor will do in the face of moral questions!
Reprints Thor (2) #44-50 (February 2002-August 2002). Odin is dead and now Thor is the Lord of Asgard. The title hangs heavy over Thor who is fighting to control a world. Meanwhile on Earth, Jake Olson adjusts to life without Thor and tries to keep Thor’s protégé Thor Girl in check. When the Grey Gargoyle and Desak decide to attack, Thor must return to Earth and makes a big decision about his division between Earth and Asgard.

Written by Dan Jurgens with Jose H.P. Armenta and featuring art by Stu

I have always loved Thor. The same way I have always lived He-Man and Conan the Barbarian. I love the brute force, the strength of character, the sheer willpower and the honesty of these characters. I love the muscle, too, I won't lie.

There was an episode of I Love the 80's where they were discussing the homoerotic nature of He-Man. That as Adam he was a closeted homosexual, repressing his sexual identity. And that when he comes out, he is He-Man, his gay alter ego that fights Skeletor, who, ver

This trade explores the events following Thor's ascension to the throne after his father's death, especially his growing distaste for the mortal realm and his kingdom's growing mistrust of Thor's governing abilities -- with some seeds of doubt sown by Loki, of course. Writer, Dan Jurgens, builds some nice tension between Thor and his human counterpart, Jake Olsen, who is feeling the disempowerment of being purely mortal following Odin's splitting of Olsen and Thor into completely separate beings ...more

The Thor series of the beginning of the 2000s was OK. It really didn't interest me that much though. Now it is getting very good though. If it continues on this path I'll be sure to read lots more. ...more

Kid Thor is pretty sweet, kid Loki is total punk. Otherwise, plot is fairly forgettable.
