THE SAGA OF THE ALL-NEW ULTIMATE THOR STARTS HERE! The Ultimate Thor died defending the Multiverse, but his hammer remains. Who will hold the hammer now? War is coming to the Ten Realms. Can the new Ultimate Thor keep back the bloody tide?


Digital copy can be found here.

Ze rules:

Post your review in the forum thread or in the comments section here on the front page.

Review as often or as little as you like. Once you've posted 5 reviews, you will be awarded 1 pick. You can post 5 reviews, right? That's a totally achievable goal and with day and date digital releases becoming the standard, it shouldn't matter if your shop ordered enough copies of this weeks comic or not.

When multiple Review Groupers have posted 5 (or more) qualifying reviews, they will be awarded their pick in the order that they qualified. What constitutes a qualifying review? Any review posted (with a score on a scale from 0-10, that's right 0!) within 1 calendar month of the thread going live. Reviews are to be at least 5 sentences long. It shows that a) you have at least read this week's pick and b) you have some unique insight into the comic.

Reviews posted while waiting in line for your pick will be applied to your next pick.

I'll be keeping track of everyone's progress with the newly christened Spreadsheet of Fantastic (RIP, Spreadsheet of Doom) and reporting the results in the Current Members list in the weekly OP. When it's your turn to make a pick, I will PM you. If you do not respond to me by Midnight EST the following Sunday, you will lose your pick and I will start a poll to determine that week's selection.

Any week in which we do not have a Review Grouper with 5 qualifying picks, we will determine the week's comic via poll.

If it's your week to pick, remember to keep it at $3.99 or under.

I've heard good things about the latest run on Thor. When the Unworthy Thor limited series came about I saw it as a good starting point to what was going on in this series. That series ended with a figure in shadows picking up the Ultimate Universe version of Thor's hammer. When i saw this issue solicited with the information that the ID of that figure being revealed, I knew I had a perfect jumping on point.

Having read this issue now, I was wrong about it being a perfect jumping on point. It was still a good jumping on point, just not a totally perfect one. That's a minor quibble in the end though. There were some things that I didn't understand, but there was enough to allow me to enjoy what I read and to want to continue after this.

As for the identity of the shadowy figure, I was somewhat surprised at who it was. It's not a negative surprise though. I am curious about where things go for here.

I've really enjoyed Jason Aaron's run with the Asgardians thus far having initially thought I would use the end of Gillens run as a jumping off point. Looking back I can see how Aaron (and Gillens) has developed the new "Thor" from

without losing the heart of the character. So the decision he makes after this issue's heartbreaking tragedy feels organic. That said I was pleasantly surprised because i genuinely thought the "War Thor" was likely to be a "Bad Guy" and also probably

NOT from Asgard
. I can't wait to see how Aaron develops this 3 Thors story which harks back to Aaron's opening arc. 7.5/10
