The three Thors fight Gorr and they should have brought more Thors

HOLY FUCKING SHIT. This comic was crazy awesome and I don’t even really know how to describe it. Basically, it’s a massive fight between all three Thors and Gorr and it is hardcore and heavy metal as fuck. There were so many great moments in this issue, so many brilliant over-the-top descriptions from Jason Aaron, this was just epic, and for once, that word is not being mis-used.

I think the descriptions are what makes this series, they are so pitch-perfect for the scale of story that Aaron is telling, and they make everything, every punch, every hammer blow, feel like the most explosive thing in the world. Stuff like ‘the sky exploded with lightning and gore’, it’s just amazing. Of course, the dialogue is also fantastic, and of a similar tone. I think it’s amazing how well Aaron has managed to make each version of Thor feel different at the same time as still being the same person, that must have been a very difficult tightrope to walk, but he’s managed it.

Esad Ribic’s artwork is also a massive part of why this book works, I’ve said before that his painted style is Frazetta-esque, and that is perfect for the epic, hard-hitting fantasy story that he and Aaron are telling. This art looks like an awesome metal concept album cover, and that is the highest of possible praise. So yeah, this issue rocked out with it’s hammer out, and whilst there wasn’t that much plot, just FIGHTING, it was amazing. And then there’s the ending, where… the Thors lose, Gorr is victorious and the God-Bomb is primed… Aaron and Ribic upped the ante with this issue, the next one should be even better.

This comic has been one of my favorites every month, and I've never cared much for Thor. The whole arc started to drag a little after four or five issues, but glad to see them finally get to the big battle. Man has it been epic so far, some great moments in the fight and still with more to come. Also love Ribic's art on this, he should be chained to the desk and forced to draw something like Thor or Conan forever.
