Things are really kicking into high gear now with Jason Aaron’s first story arc on Thor, and this was another great issue. The thing I liked the most about this is how he used time-travel, but had fun with it. Both present-day Thor and future Thor admit to hating time-travel and of not being sure of how it works, which is clever stuff. I really think with time-travel, writers should just go with it and do what works for their story, not what has been previously established. Time-travel is a fictional conceit, to try and apply rules to it restricts creativity. I also really liked Thor’s comment about this possibly being an alternate future that ‘the X-Men are always going on about’, that was hilarious. The back and forth between present-day and Old Thor was also very entertaining. The stuff with young Thor was good too, and surprisingly saucy for a Marvel Comic, if Saga hadn’t also come out this week, I bet more people would have paid attention to these particularly sexy scenes. Esad Ribic’s artwork was brilliant as usual, his painted style really suits Thor and conveys the epic scale of this story perfectly. Speaking of epic, that Bomb! Holy crap! It was really clever how Aaron hid what Shadrak was God of until now, at first he seemed like an unimportant character, but now… woah. Now that all 3 Thors are in the same timeframe, it’s only a matter of time before shit gets real. I hoping for some serious heavy metal carnage.
