Issue Review
   November 3, 2016
Mark Gruenwald and Ralph Macchio deliver a fun diversion. The second half is all action, as Thor faces numerous attacks on a battlefield, but there is a lot of story behind the scenes. The writers have returned an old villain, given him a backstory and an entire planet that needs saving. Nice cliffhanger, too. 6/10

  -Would a Loki by any other name smell as sweet? Thor is a dumb ass--with definite anger management issues!

  The art in that was great, but the plot was 3rd rate.

  Damn Thor was badass in this... and didn't think we would ever get an Origin of Space Phantom nor do I really think it was needed.
