Issue Review
 
RikerDonegal
   November 7, 2016
Scene 1, pages 1-2: Thor is still out in space, on the ship of the Celestial. Watching him take on such a massive being, once cannot help but be impressed.
Scene 2, pages 3-7: Thor is sent back to Olympia and the story takes a downtown. All the conflict here... fails to convince. Zuras is an unreasonable tyrant, yet all the Eternal characters rally behind him in unquestioning manner. It creates conflict for our hero, but it feels forced.
Scene 3, pages 8-11: Odin arrives at Olympus. More conflict that utterly fails to convince the reader. Zeus is another unreasonable tyrant, and the characters with him rally behind him in unquestioning manner. Same trope, different location.
Scene 4, pages 11-12: Karnilla, best part of the issue. Again.
Scene 5, pages 12-17: Thor arrives at Asgard. Guess what? We get more unconvincing conflict. Odin is yet another unreasonable tyrant, and the Asgarians blindly follow his edicts and turn on Thor in an unquestioning manner that frustrates the reader. Different location but exactly the same trope.
To sum up: This is supposed to be the arc resolving the arc from the cancelled Eternals series, but it doesn’t feel like we are going anywhere.
4/10

  -Thor: " I ain't payin' no fifty cents for no Coke."
Sif: "Oh. Then YOU ain't getting no Coke. Know what I'm talking about?"

  Roy Thomas has finally intrigued me with this storyline, it took him long enough.

  This is finally getting good. About time.

I really despise Odin and his omnipotent pettiness that has beguiled Marvel.

  The Asgardians standing behind Odin bothers me. The dude is a tyrant and would be deposed in any other scenario. If this storyline ends with another Odin "misleading everyone for a secret purpose" ending, I'm gonna lose it.

  Zuras needs a bowler hat to go with that fancy cane.
