READ IT. It's the reason people like Thor.
Wait till you get to the 3rd volume and Skurge's Last Stand!
Kein typischer Superheldencomic, da Simonson Thor zumindest in diesem Band nicht den repetitiven Formelhaftigkeiten des amerikanischen Mainstreams aussetzt. Eine echte Perle, die man kaum hoch genug würdigen kann.
Super-Spitzenklasse und eine vorbehaltslose Kaufempfehlung.
Well this book truly blew me away! What is so powerful is the writer's unreserved, thorough, and convincing immersion in the original Norse mythos. He really takes it seriously, and seems to have done a pretty major amount of research, as countless minutiae of the Asgardian world are incorporated in the comics. I found myself completely engrossed in the mythology, swept away by the epic scale of the tales, and thrilled by the might and magic of the proceedings.
Mr. Simonson's art is vigorous and lusty. I had previously only seen his work on X-factor, and was never a fan. Now I realize that the X-Factor work was a later, more rushed and tired version of this earlier, more crafted and finished style.
I unreservedly recommend this book. It brings home the power of good old-fashioned Marvel Comics from an era that was completely untainted by irony of any kind - a vigorous and exciting kind of story-telling that is pure, innocent fun, but paired with enough complexity of plot and depth of character to distinguish it from the more simplistic tales of the sixties and seventies. These Simonson books are truly readable and enjoyable over 25 years after they were written.
