[Every day, a new song about a different Marvel NOW! Title]
Let’s talk about Thor: God of Thunder, a book that’s so metal, so anti-religion, so weird and twisted that there’s THREE different Thors fighting against a villain whose mission is killing all the gods. It’s a book that’s so grandiose, so biblical, so epic that I almost can’t believe Marvel is letting Jason Aaron get away with it.
I’ve never been the hugest Thor guy, so the fact that I am SO into this story says a lot about the writing, about the gorgeous Esad Ribic art, and about the villain Gorr, who Aaron even manages to make completely sympathetic and understandable in the break issue.
This is what comics should be. If you’re not reading it, you’re missing out, not the least of which is Thor riding a space-time shark out of his prison only to have another Thor rip the shark to pieces, so that Thor is facing Thor while holding the severed tail of the space-time shark. Seriously, it makes no sense, but it’s genius. All of it.
The trade comes out in a month, and you should pre-order it.
