This issue reminded me a lot of the ‘Ages Of Thunder’ series of one-shots that Matt Fraction did a few years ago, which remain not only his best Thor stuff, but some of the best work of his career. So having Fraction revisit some tales of young Thor and some actual Norse Legends was a lot of fun and a real highlight of his run. I loved seeing some of these stories depicted in the Mighty Marvel Fashion, especially the most famous one, in which Thor has to pretend to be a woman in order to get Mjolnir back and kill a shit-ton of Frost Giants. Barry Kitson depicted all of this wonderfully. I also liked how Fraction unified all of these tales with the notion of Thor doing everything to protect his family, and in particular Loki, and the suggestion that Loki’s trickery goes beyond what we thought. It’s interesting, and given that Loki is now a child again, raises some interesting questions about his future. For now, he and Thor really are brothers, but how long can that last? Oh yeah, and how freaky was skinny Volstagg? That just wasn’t right! He’s meant to be voluminous!
