It's like Thor, but in some sort of Bizzaro Thor universe
Asgard has fallen, Mephisto has control of the Disir, and the rest of Thor's world has been turned upside down.
There is a lot going on in this issue. We have the Asgardians searching for their new king, Mephisto and his reign in Hell, and Hela is doing her thing in Hel. There's a lot of actually interesting stuff going on in the book. Usually, Thor tends to bore me, but not this issue. The artwork in here was a mixed bag for me. Any panels that consisted of medium or close-up shots I thought were great. very detailed, and interesting. Anything else was just ok at best.
Although there's a lot of good stuff happening in this book. I'm not excited by it. I just float through the book. I'm sure this is because I've never really liked Thor though. I mentioned that the close us art was pretty good earlier. I felt that the shots that were farther away, the actual battle scenes turned out to be a little drab and dull because of the art style.
The Verdict 3/5
While I am interested to see where this story goes, this issue didn't really excite me. I know some of the Thor fans won't be happy with this, but as a person who is interested in the character and tries his darnedest to get into the books, I feel as though this series has failed to make me a fan yet again. I'm sure Thor fans will enjoy this, but for the rest of us, let's just enjoy the pretty cover.
