Aaron asked:

what is it about

Sud666 Without too many spoilers:
Mortal named Gorr loses his family and loved ones to the inaction, or actions, of the gods. He finds an ancient weapon and transforms into the God Butcher. The tale is spread out over millennia and Gorr encounters a young ca 980 A.D. Thor (when he was still a Viking God-bloodthristy and pre-mjolnir weilding); The Avenger's era Thor (or our Thor, if you will) and a Thor who has replaced Odin as All-Father (3,000 years in the future). Gorr's plan is to destroy all the God's of all the worlds. Beautifully illustrated and an epic story-can't recommend it enough.
Kevin Greene How to summarize...... the story is about Thor from three different time periods: Young Thor, before he was worthy of carrying Mjolnir, current day Thor and Old King Thor, the last king of a fallen Asgard. Current day Thor comes across the handiwork of a villain from young Thor's past. One that young Thor barely survived an encounter with. His name is Gor, the God Killer. A serial slayer of all the universes gods. All three Thor's will have to stop one of the most dangerous foes they have ever faced. It's great. Jason Aaron just goes crazy writing this. And the artwork... Esad Ribic is one of my favorite comic artists and every page is an absolute home run. This was one of the most excited I've ever been reading a particular arc. Get both hardcovers. It's worth it.
