The Marvel NOW! initiative will be getting a brand new look at "The God of Thunder," Thor. Marvel has given readers a look at the series before it hits stores on November 14th, 2012, so how will this Thor be different from previous versions of the character? The upcoming THOR: GOD OF THUNDER will be written by writer Jason Aaron (WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN) and feature the art talents of Esad Ribic (WOLVERINE). and will follow Thor as he struggles to prevent "a trail of blood" from "consuming his past, present and future self." In order to do this, the 'God of Thunder' must uncover the mystery behind "the God Butcher." Sounds crazy? Check out the full solicit and accompanying preview, below.

I read this in the Marvel NOW preview issue. It shows previews of Cap, Iron Man, FF, Fantastic 4, First X men, SHe Hulk, Thor, and X men Legacy. They were free at my LCS Flying Colors comics.

This Thor title, The first X men and the new Thunderbolts, and maybe Cable's X-force are the titles that interest me in the Marvel Now line.

Freaking love the art (reminds me of Frazetta in a way). But after Aaron's run on Incredible Hulk, I'm not sure I can trust him handling any Marvel superhero that doesn't have foot long retractable claws and a hairdo that makes even Medusa jealous.

Wow. The art really is astounding and so is Aaron (not talking only about Thor, but a great part of his work). I wasn't sure before, but now, I'll definitely give this comic a shot.

Wow, pretty good. VERY tempted to pull that issue #1 out. I have so many issues to follow upcoming next month! Gambit, FF #1, Wolverine MAX, All-New X-Men and several others I might forget.

Jason is an awesome writer. I enjoyed following him in Wolverine and the X-Men.

Hmmmm, Thor teaming up with his past and future self still sounds incredibly stupid to me and "the god butcher" im rollin my eyes marvel (though not as bad as Miss Thing in FF).

The art though, I think I can get behind it enough to give the first issue or two a try.

The cover is atrocious, but the artwork inside looks pretty cool. Not too sure about his plain chest piece though.

At first, I wasn't behind Marvel Now.

Now, I am. GET IT?!

No but really, most of the new books look neat. Picking up Cap, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Avengers and Fantastic Four.

The preview for FF didn't make me hate it, either. Miss-Thing looks awful, but Allred's art might make me do it.

Your comic shop should have a preview book for free. I got it 2 weeks ago, and it has previews for Cap, Thor (this one), Iron Man, Hulk, Fantastic Four and FF.

Looks great, just don't know if I can afford it. $4 and I bet they will be double shipping it each month. $8 is a lot each month for one series.

On a side note, anyone else think Thor's arms in the first photo look like Thanksgiving Day turkeys? 'Cause those things are just huge...

I'm not a fan of Thor, or any avenger book, but I tried before with journey into mystery, and well I kind of like Thor over there, his little cameos. So I think I'll try this one. Yeah the art looks quite good.
