The exciting and superbly crafted "God Butcher" story line that filled the first two books of the "Thor" series was in many ways the apotheosis of the epic, high-stakes cosmic conflict that has characterized many God of Thunder serials. Among the three diverse tales in this more humorous volume is one lesser but still enjoyable example of that genre, in which Thor leads a motley and fractious fellowship of representatives from across the Nine Realms of Norse mythology—including a dwarf, a giant, a troll, and two very different elves—against the rampaging dark elf Malekith. The other two stories present contrasting portraits of the thunder god. In one fine episode, Thor tours Midgard (Earth), visiting people from all walks of life and acting as Superman might (except for the mead drinking and skirt chasing). In the other, set in 894 CE, a younger, more headstrong Thor deals with an adolescent dragon and acts more like Conan the Barbarian (except for the heroic answering of his followers' prayers). VERDICT A bloodier, earthier take on the Norse hero than either the movies or classic older Thor comics—but well done and recommended.—S.R.

Writer Jason Aaron's early collaboration with artist Cameron Stewart on DC/Vertigo's The Other Side was named one of The Washington Post's "Best Comics of 2007." His next project, Scalped, garnered industry-wide praise and led to a guest spot on Wolverine. After signing with Marvel Comics, Aaron completed another run on Wolverine, as well as stints on Black Panther and Ghost Rider, before moving on to launch Wolverine Weapon X and relaunch Wolverine. He brought Frank Castle's tortured tale to a devastating end in the pages of PunisherMAX and, in the wake of his status-quo-shattering miniseries X-Men: Schism, helped usher in a new era for Marvel's mutants in the pages of Wolverine and the X-Men.

Jason Aaron continues his fantastic run Thor. He tells a great story of Malekith the dark elf, who has never been a character I've cared about. Here, Aaron adds a political side to the nine realms and adds mystery and action. He also has an amazing way of making Thor funny as well. There was a nice plot twist at the end setting up more to come. The art, mostly by Ron Garney is fantastic. Overall, another great Thor tale.
