After all my praising and admiration for the first 4 issue, I really wasn’t expecting such lazy, lame and cheesy writing for the 5th issue. Feminist jokes are really try-hard. The message that’s been tried to be given was correct-ish, but it came across only- shallow. It was neither funny, nor useful. I appreciate the thought, but honestly, it feels like the line’s only been squeezed there to suck up to us ladies.

Just because Thor’s a woman now, your target audience doesn’t have to be women only

Odin deals with the reality of a new Thor, while Thor proves she's an equal opportunity hero.

While the fifth issue is illustrated competently and moves the overarching story forward, the storytelling does not sing of thunder and lightning, nor does it reverberate with the pounding of a hammer on the giants' ice flesh.

This is by far my favorite issue of the new Thor series by far!

The Goddess of Thunder may have the previous Thor'a blessing but not everyone is happy to see her wielding Mjolnir.

Back on earth she is hard at work fighting evil and righting wrongs. I haven't been familiar with the series long enough to know who Absorbing Man or Titania are but long time fans might recognize them.

It not only makes for a great action scene but it also touches on some real world issue that came up when the new Thor w
I was a bit thrown by the change in art for this one -- I've loved Dauterman's draftwork so deeply, and Wilson's coloring; it was odd to see something different. I admit to being a bit disappointed in the boobplate armor (remember, how that would get a person dead?!), but the art is still nice overall.

Very much liking the tension inside the Asgardian royal family -- Odin's clearly off his rocker, and Freyja and the Odinson know it. I'm looking forward to the eventual resolution of this, sometime

This is my favorite issue in the new Thor series so far.

Odin is out of his mind, the All Mother is still trying to protect her kingdom, and Odinson-formerly-known-as-Thor has become surprisingly chill about the whole thing and wants his crazy dad to drop the obsession with getting the hammer back.

Thor herself is just trying to do the super hero thing, fighting crime in NYC and all that. There's a fantastic dig against all the Lady Thor haters out there that had me cracking up.

If you haven't pick

I'm still really surprised how much I like the new Thor, when I originally heard about the switch I thought I'd hate it but so far this book is way better then I expected and I'm looking forward to seeing where the story goes from here. ...more

It's a good issue of a cool comic that experiments well with an established form without being trite.

Go for it.

Since I haven't read the stories that surround this one, the actual idea of some of the characters is lost on me as I don't know what happened when/where/why. It doesn't detract from the story, but it makes me a bit more curious what is going on in Thor's life and why the list of possibilities is who it is. I was also surprised that who the Goddess of Thunder is has been kept a secret. I assumed going in we'd learn who it was easily, and instead they keep it a secret. That means many are going t ...more

I don't really like how the illustrations changed from the first four. I know this story will probably be split into volumes and since volume two begins at six, I feel as if the new illustrations would've fit if they began there. It's getting a little tiresome having to keep getting teased about Thor's new identity. ...more
