Thor God Of Thunder #19.1 Review

The Earth is dying and Thor won't let it go down without a fight!

The Good

First of, that cover is awesome. It has a great watercolor look that oozes an aura of ancient mythology. Esab Ribic really nails the feel and tone of Thor's world, something missing from the big budget movies, and the picture makes me curious about the world Thor inhabits. The future/present stories work well and they connect without it seeming forced or contrived.

The Not So Good

While not exactly bad, the art inside the book does not live up to the cover. The future, while an interesting concept to touch upon in Marvel comics, is never consistent in Marvel comics and what is shown to be the future in this issue could be only one of many possible futures so the whole future story portion of the book doesn't hold the weight it should.

The Bottom Line

This is another great Thor comic that I highly recommend. The only gripes I have with the book, like I mentioned above, is the fact the art inside does not live up to the standard of the cover and the future story portion may or may not actually take place in the "main" Marvel universe. The use of Roxxon as the villains for the comic is interesting and I hope to se Thor face more corporate type adversaries.

4.0 / 5
