Mighty Thor #7 (Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Wed Oct 26, 2011 1:32 pm

I’m not sure where I stand on this one. I get what Fraction is trying to do in having the prologue and exposition for Fear Itself actually happen after the event has finished, but I’m not sure if it worked, things in that story make sense now retroactively, but I can’t help but feel that fan response to FI would have been more positive on the whole if we had known this stuff about Cul and Odin beforehand. But it’s all moot now, in generations to come readers can do just that. As it stands this is just a damn good single issue that sheds a lot of light on the back-story of Odin and features some great Godly dialogue and fight scenes and fantastic art from Pasqual Ferry. I’m not sure where this book is going now that Thor is dead, but if it continues to be this good without him (yes, I know he appears as a baby), I don’t mind. Essential reading for Fear Itself fans methinks.

Actually a lot of the one shots he wrote when JMS was going months in between issues were amazing.

Way to spoil that he died last week, Niam. :roll:

Some people still haven't gotten their comics yet.

I do remember those being very well recieved at the time, so he has yet to write a good one since he took over for Gillen.

Yea he doesnt care. He's been doing it for a while. Most of the time spoiling the comic in the title of the thread but its okay since he's Nieo's little "friend."

So what, want me to wait until the hardcover is out? Until the paperback?

Keep whining, crybabies.

Besides, they were saying that Thor would die in the solicitations about 3 months ago! This is not a big deal, stop moaning and get off my back.

A lot of people get their comics shipped via DCBS or other mail-order services. I know my books won't show up until Monday or Tuesday of next week, and that would be all the stuff from last week and this week. So your spoilery thread titles tend to be annoying, unless it's really vague stuff.

You could leave the spoilers out of the titles altogether and just say Mighty Thor #7. :smt102

That makes too much sense. And none of the mods seem to care.

Its about time for a vote of no confidence in them.
