I can't wait to read the whole volume!
Unfortunately, this one issue was the only thing I could get my hands on.
Yeah, yeah, I know I'm late to the party...

The issue starts out with an attack on an underwater complex of some sort, by the Frost Giants and that squirrely Dark Elf from Stval...Swevtle...Svartflalle...wherever the Dark Elves come from.


The rest of the story takes place on the moon, which is the current home to Mjolnir (I got smart and just googled that one).
For those of you who

Here it is, the headline grabbing comic announced a few months ago, besides the black Captain America and the Superior Iron Man (is that where Otto went?): female Thor! Well, kind of - Thor is still Thor but there’s now a mysterious woman who can lift the hammer that he no longer can. And you know what? It’s really good! And thank the gods they didn’t go with “Thoretta” or “Thorina” for a name - female Thor is still Thor.

So what’s the roast beef - how come Thor is no longer Thor? Well, towards

I liked it.

Before I begin my review, may I just say, haters to the left?

I have been highly anticipating this comic release for several reasons, which I will go into after I review the actual first issue.

Thor #1 picks up about where the God of Thunder and the Original Sin arcs left off- Nick Fury has whispered an unknown secret to Thor which has caused him to be unable to wield Mjolnir. He has become unworthy, he is no longer the God of Thunder.

Thor #1 picks up with Thor Odinson pleading to Mjolnir to ple

Hell yes, "There must always be a Thor." And I love who was picked as the female Thor -- (view spoiler). It feels organic to the story, and not jammed in solely for political correctness/pandering.

Update: Looking at these pages of a later issue of this Thor run, my comment above regarding who became Thor looks completely wrong. Oops.

Further Update: Having now read the entire eight issue arc, which was really good, I can confirm that a) my guess at who became Thor was 100%
I like the feminist slant, but I looked up what happens, and I am a little po'ed by it. Still, love the idea.

First issue introduced a new status quo: the Odinson out; new Thor in, and she's a goddess!

Aaron's previous Thor was a celebration of all sorts of manliness; drinking, fighting, and wenching. Here, the script is flipped and it's probably better for it.

The suspense! In this first and much awaited issue we see Thor as we know him fall from grace and a mystery female lift the hammer in his place. The identity of that woman is hinted at, but I'm sure it's not going to be that easy. I'm left hanging here! Really curious to see where Thor (dude)'s fate takes him now that he's lost his powers too. I feel a subscription coming on...

I was very hesitant to start the new Thor simply because I didn't think I would like Thor as a female. I put it off. When people tried talking to me about it, I would simply change the topic. I was in a comic book store a couple weeks ago and there was the first issue of new Thor, staring me in the face. I loved the cover art immediately! I couldn't control myself I had to pick it up and read it. The worse thing that could happen would be that I was right, it was awful and now I had material to ...more

I'm undecided on this one. Don't get me wrong, I'm super stoked that a woman will be yielding the hammer, but this first comic was 100% backstory and introduction. Our heroine doesn't appear until the very last page. So we will see.

I've never been interested in Thor before, let alone EXCITED. This changes everything. The art is lovely and already there are deliciously feminist undertones. (Can we keep the All-Mother? Please?) I'm pleased to add this series to my very small pull list.

Lo he vuelto a leer y le mantengo la nota porque, aunque me ha gustado más que la anterior vez, no me ha apasionado locamente.

Algunas escenas de Malekith en dibujo y color tienen mi amor eterno eso sí.

A woman version of Thor?! Signed up immediately for this epic transfer of power and definitely did not regret it. I bet you can guess who the new Thor is....or....not! The first volume will keep you guessing the whole time about the true identity of the new wielder of Mjolnir. OG Thor forlorn and, dare I say, pretty badass when in this nothing-to-lose state of mind. All in all, a great revamp of what was becoming a stale character in the Marvel universe.

Série osmi sešitů, kde se Thorem stane žena. Milé, vtipné, neurazí. Ale kromě té základní myšlenky to zas velký zázrak není. Jako uvedení nové Thor-ky a jako prequel k dalším dobrodružstvím ovšem dobré.

After a while of 'OMG a female Thor', 'Why isn't she called Thoretta?', 'Why have they made Thor a woman?' and now it's here, issue 1 of the all new Thor comic.

It needs to be mentioned that Thor isn't just a name, it's not just Thor Odinson's name; Thor is a title and is a hero's name, Thor on Earth is known simply as Thor, not Thor Odinson - at least those close to him know his last name - so it makes sense for this new Thor to take the mantel and become Thor. It should also be noted that this

Aaron decided he wanted to write comics as a child, and though his father was skeptical when Aaron informed him of this aspiration, his mother took Aaron to drug stores, where h ...more
