Thor: God of Thunder #1 Review

Cover - 5/5

Layout/Flow - 5/5

- Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?

Story - 5/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story? How well did the issue further develop the characters? Did I enjoy reading the issue?



Verdict - 5

- I usually don't read Thor comics, but because I enjoyed The Mighty Thor I figured I would give this one a shot. I liked the main cover and you get Thor standing with his future self in the background, and the variant cover has all three versions, past, present, and future. This gives a good impression of what's going to happen in the book. From the first page I really enjoyed the art and coloring of this issue. The story is about the God Butcher and how Thor has been fighting him for years. It starts with his first encounter in the past when a Gods body parts and head wash up on shore. It then cuts to today where Thor saves a world who says they no longer have Gods. While investigating their temple he discovers they have all been killed by the God Butcher. Another flash forward and we find ourselves looking at Thor old and as the last remaining God. Even with all the jumping around with the past and future you never get lost in the issue. I can't wait for the next issue, unlike other Marvel NOW! books this one has me more interested to see where it's going.
