Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Although Thor sidekicks Volstagg, Hogun, and Fandral go back in Marvel history to the 1960s, this Thor-universe miniseries can be enjoyed as a stand-alone work. (In the current Thor stories, the characters' home, Asgard, hovers over Oklahoma, the case here also.) Master plotter Willingham (Fables; Down the Mysterly River) slips in enough backstory, plus new origin details, to frame a tale of three little Asgard warriors vs. the very big bad Fenris wolf. Narrator Helen Gable, of the shadowy criminal organization A.I.M. that released the deadly wolf, has thrown in with the warriors to recapture the beast and repair its damage. In some clever sf sleight of hand, Helen has become part Asgardian herself and makes a powerful, clever teammate for the warriors. VERDICT While not so social-issues-subtle as some of Willingham's other work, Warriors Three makes a good high-testosterone yarn that infuses fantasy-mythology and fantasy-science into a co-ed, buddy-team road trip. Edwards's art does well by the majestic wolf and its four opponents, though the heavy detail and consistently strong colors can diffuse focus. These warriors should appeal to Thor readers as well as to fans of picaresque mashups.—M.C.
