Issue Review

Fast pace, epic scale, sumptuous art.
This isnít just good, this is cool.
Back in the Ď80s/'90s I never read Thor (Hey, you canít buy EVERYTHING :) ) But, now that I am finally reading them, I can see that itís a comic with itís own unique style. I like it.

  No love for Kamo Tharn?

  Kamo Tharn is a jerk, but it seems like was pretty much minding his own business for millennia, and then Sif and Hercules just steal this guy's Runestaff. That's really not very heroic.

  How did Hercules get his hearing back?

  My guess would be that Tharn was just trying to get them to leave rather than doing permanent harm, so the deafness spell was only temporary.
I respect what Sif is doing, but does she have to keep bringing up what a martyr she is?
If the Absorbing Man truly absorbed the properties of Mjolnir then should he be stuck to the ground unable to keep himself up?

  Aaaand another blind character. I feel like blindness is getting preferential treatment in the MU compared to other disablities. How about some deaf people for a change? Or maybe someone with Down Syndrome?
Yeah, I'm gonna shut up now.

  Oh yeah, the return of the Absorbing Man! Epic slugfest, here we come! I think Loki's spell that grants him his powers also allowed him to absorb the metal off the hammer without adapting more of the hammer's properties (like the enchantment that allows only the "worthy" to lift it) allowing Creel to be able to move without being fully stuck to the floor.

But dang Thor, get a grip already. You'd moved on from Jane pretty much the minute after Sif came onto the scene. I find it hard to believe you're this emotionally distraught. Creel shouldn't have been able to sneak up on you like that. (Shame on you too, Vizier; you saw him coming)

And yeah, I'm not real fond of Sif and Hercules essentially going to a blind man's house and stealing his prized possession. What the heck are you thinking, Vizier? The next issue had better have an explanation for all this.

3 stars. Next issue has the final fate of Jane Foster? If only....
