  Remember those days when Thor stories had very little happening in them? That's definitely not the case here. Simonson comes on strong with the Beta Ray Bill introduction and has lots of interesting subplots brewing.

  -Not understanding the love here...the art is amateurish and the lettering (yes lettering) is god awful. I suppose this book is now headed in an "exciting new direction" and others are retroactively rating this first issue from WS based on some coolness to come (I have done the same kind of thing in the past), but I was not feeling it. Maybe I'll change my tune soon. :-)
-Seems like some established Thor "conditions" were ignored...

  Mostly a 3-star story, but after two plus years of lackluster storytelling on this title, it's nice to see some new concepts and the return of side plots. Hopefully, Simonson is just getting started and will get much better as his run goes.

  Must agree with Red here.
The story was entertaining, but nothing spectacular.
But, still a good start for Walt

  Well, this certainly feels like a massive change! It captured my enjoyment, alright.

  Usually my eyes start to glaze over once we are in Asgard, but this held my attention from start to finish!

  So many questions! How did BRB grab the hammer? Must read more.

  At last we begin one of the great epic stories to grace the pages of yon storytelling combined with graphic images. Verily it doth quench my soul for mine eyes to grace such a stirring, refreshing breath of fresh air in the telling of the Asgardian peoples. Yonder do I venture forth in this storyline, looking forward to more.

  Page 4, first panel... the skater chick in the background is wiping out because her hand is on fire!

Beta Ray Bill... I get to learn about a new Marvel character that I didn't have the opportunity to until now :-D. About time this title started to get good again!

  This is just a high 3 stars, low 4 stars issue... but this comic is something I don't think I've ever enjoyed so far... so this was awesome in comparison.

  The overall lettering is remarkably bad. But those capital letters, are they the first appearance of the Asgard font?

  Beta Ray Bill walks into a bar, and the bartender says "So...why the long face?"

I'll see myself out.
