    • This volume, which collects the story arc "The Fine Print," blessedly marks the end of Kieron Gillen's run writing Thor.Gillen had big shoes to fill when J. Michael Straczynski left. Unfortunately, he never rose above the level of "passable." This story, however, marked the nadir of his run on the title. I honestly couldn't tell you what this was about. The mystical mumbo jumbo was so thick that the story failed to engage me on even the most basic level.The only reason I'm giving this two stars [...]


    • A decent enough conclusion to Gillen's short-lived run on Thor. The guy had a hell of a job to do with the title, picking up the pieces after Straczynski's exit, setting up the Siege event, and then laying ground for his own Journey Into Mystery and Fraction's Thor all in just 10 (or so) issues. And I am confident that he did the best possible job. Yes, it's not all great, the plotting and the storytelling are a bit rocky, but hey, we got closure. At least his run ends in a much better place tha [...]


    • definitely not as good as the first few volumes, which is what i was expecting, and i really wasn’t interested in in the arc at all but it was still rly good


    • This was horseshit too. What is the point in including a TPB a story that makes no sense because huge chunks of it are missing?And also, christ, what's with the Goddess of Cleavage and her pining after her beloved Bill? While he's in the afterlife whooping it up and not missing her in the slightest. Fucking awful sexual politics.


    • This comic demonstrates *exactly* why I generally stick with manga: when manga are released, they release volumes 1, 2, 3 etc collected IN ORDER; and they might jump around in the timeline a bit &/or keep some surprise revelations in store or sneak in the odd bit of largely-unobtrusive crossover, but they WILL eventually tell all (or near enough to grant reader satisfaction).They do NOT release a volume consisting of story chapters 1, 2, 3, 5 where chapters 1-3 are all building up to a clima [...]


    • Not too shabbyAfter some of Loki's scheming during Siege, Thor and Tyr must journey into Hel. There they discover that Hela is under siege by undead Valkyries that Bor (Thor's grandfather) cursed eons ago. In order to stop them, Thor must retrieve Hela's sword from Hell (not Hel the domain of Hela, but the domain of Mephisto). Tyr stays in Hel with Hela to hold off another SiegeThor uses the old noggin on this one, as well as the muscles; Mephisto is kinda funny here, coming across like a perver [...]


    • I think maybe I don't care about Thor the way I don't care about Superman. They're both ubernoble superdudes who don't seem to have much to them beyond their duty to protect or whatever. Although they're also both pretty clever, which I appreciate. In any case, Thor's adventures in hell are fairly entertaining mostly because of Mephisto, who is a snarky devil. There's still a fair bit of "What the hell is going on?" but I like the art, and I always dig when heroes have to team up with villains a [...]


    • A much better outing from Gillen, likely due to the fact that he had gained full creative control. The ending is muddled and the story loses tension as it moves forward, but the scenario Gillen has created here works much better than his previous entries.The bonus story by Lee and Kirby shows just how different comics have become. It's tough to read the dialogue without laughing, as seemingly every character narrates his own life. I get that these are "classics," but they really don't stand the [...]


    • I think I'm done with Thor for a while. Things were great when Stracynski was writing the series, but now it's just dull. Thor becomes muscle with no character and Balder is as dumb as they come. Seriously, I don't know how anyone could let that guy be king. This volume was decent for action, but the series used to be cool and mean something. Now it's skippable. I might give Loki's "Journey Into Mystery" a try, but I'll be putting my Thor reading to rest.


    • Not a bad story. There were some things that I didn't understand (especially the end, the flashback to Loki and the girl, Keira? and what all was going on with that) even though I have read Siege and a handful of tie-ins. It had a bunch of filler in the end though that was classic Thor comics, so the title story was short (I think that's deceiving when a volume is like 1/2 and 1/2).


    • This bind up has three issues by Gillen, an three by Stan Lee. It's kinda hilarious to see the difference. Man has the medium changed. Also, tricksters written by Gillen continue to be my favourite.


    • Not the best Thor book in fact it's pretty mundane. The action in minimal and the story is barely entertaining. The art is well drawn but this Loki reversal story is old hat and nothing new. Hela needs to save hel from the desir but it's just one big Loki show, not shocked at all.


    • I liked this a lot more on a second read-through. It's very different than the terrestrial action of Siege, but it offers up some wonderful metaphysics, and a thus a great adventure in Hel. The ending is a little obscure, but parts of it nicely set up Gillen's Journey into Mystery.


    • Thor travels to Hel and Hell to save the souls of the gods who died during siege. There's some fun bits here and the villains are well thought out. You don't really need to have read Siege to enjoy this volume. Mephisto as always steals the show. A good read.





    • I seem to have something against Thor right now, because I dislike everything where he is. But in Siege Aftermath he looked really weird. And I'm not entirely sure what was happening in the story.



    • Hmm. No matter who the author is, I can't seem to find any enjoyment in Thor. I'm going to give Fraction a whirl, then I'm done.




    • I think I actually enjoyed the 1970's comic more than the main story. I'm also surprised Capt Obvious doesn't make an appearance in old comics.



    • I loved this one, I mean I saw a few issues of Thor where he was in Hell and Hel. I wanted to read the full story. I am so glad I did, it is great. I loved the bonus old Thor story included to



    • Largely superfluous, focused too specifically on one particular element of Siege instead of dealing with the aftermath in a more general way. Enjoyed the reprints in the back, though.
