Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Compared to his Avengers buddies, Thor has always been a hard character to warm up to; he is the only character tied to Norse mythology and is bound to the Asgard realm in every way including speech. Author Fraction and crew here attempt to create an epic tale: the fall of Asgard and the other Nine Realms courtesy of Surtur, the fire demon. Where the story shines is through Thor’s stepbrother and nemesis Loki, who has many layers and as the God of Mischief manages to fool the reader throughout. This is not a bad story—the characters are written so the reader sees both their attributes and flaws. What keeps this volume from being great is its lack of context—readers can only truly appreciate everything that is happening if they have read the previous issues. The art does a great job of showing the grandeur of the Nine Realms; the facial expressions are exceptional.

Verdict This book is not a good pick for anyone to jump into as they won’t learn about the full cast. Recommended to readers into the character of Thor and lovers of mythology.—Ryan Claringbole, Chesapeake P.L., VA
