Thor #5 (2014)

$5.50
VERY FINE/NEAR MINT
(W) Jason Aaron (A/CA) Russell Dauterman
The mysterious all-new Thor has taken Midgard by storm. But if her enemies have their say, her reign as the Goddess of Thunder will be a short one. Prince Odinson is making a list and checking it twice. All-Father Odin is so desperate to see Mjolnir returned to Asgard that he will call on some very dangerous, very unexpected allies. And the Absorbing Man and Titania are just up to their usual tricks. Namely, robbing banks and crushing anyone who dares get in their way. Rated T+

BONUS REVIEW by Gavin Rehfeldt


Articulating what happened in Thor #5 is difficult as it is setting the stage for getting down to the mystery of what the new Thor's identity is. #5 is the definition of a transitional issue, further emphasized by fill-in artist Jorge Molina. His interiors are serviceable, but the absence of regular artist Russell Dauterman is deeply felt. Aaron's work has been delightful thus far, but he falters with this non-event of an issue. This is not a bad comic. It at least reestablishes the ongoing mysteries (Nick Fury's whisper to Odinson, most notably), and has some clever moments, but it is not up to the standard set thus far feeling inconsequential throughout until the last turn of the page. The best part was the last page announcing Dauterman's return in #6!

I give it 6 out of 10 Grahams
