Review: King Thor #1

King Thor #1

Jason Aaron and Esad Ribić again team up to wrap up their tale of Thor that began seven years ago. King Thor #1 wraps the epic tale that began in Thor: God of Thunder. The results are both good and bad due to that.

Taking place in the future, King Thor #1 focuses on Thor, the All-Father of a broken realm and dying universe. The Necrosword has returned and is now in the hands of his brother Loki who’s intent on killing him and the rest of existence. Thor’s daughters are on a mission to stop all of this and prevent the end of existence.

It’s a story that feels like years in the making and the first issue’s ending brings the circle around in so many ways. That’s a big payoff for those who have been reading but also a difficult hurdle for those who haven’t. King Thor #1 is a great read but the comic’s also not new reader friendly. But, it’s a tale that’s worth going back and catching up on what you’ve missed.

Aaron infuses the first issue with a melancholy feel about it all. There’s a morose and depressing feel about it all as if it’s the finality of one who knows their time is up. And that’s part of the point. This is the tale told by those who celebrate a final stand while drinking but also in remembrance.

The art by Ribić is beautiful as expected. Joined by Ive Svorcina on color and Joe Sabino on lettering, the art captures the mood of the comic and allows us to linger on the experience. There aren’t close of panels of shock moments. Instead, we take in all of what we witness as if the audience in a play whose final act we’re witnessing.

King Thor #1 is a comic I can recommend for those who’ve been following this story from the beginning. For new readers, the issue might be a bit over your head, especially the end. If you want to take part, you’ll need to do some research along the way. The issue feels like the beginning of the end. One last chapter to add to the book that began seven years ago.

AfterShock Comics Announces A Walk Through Hell From Garth Ennis and Goran Sudžuka

AfterShock Comics has announced a new series, A Walk Through Hell from Garth Ennis with art from Goran Sudžuka, out in May. It’s the publisher’s third series with Ennis!

So these two FBI agents walk into a warehouse…

Special Agents Shaw and McGregor handle the routine cases nowadays, which is just the way Shaw likes it. She’s pushing 40, a borderline burnout, the ghastly memories of her last investigation still clinging like shadows. McGregor is younger, more dedicated, hanging onto some measure of idealism whatever the world might throw at him.

When two fellow agents go missing inside a Long Beach warehouse, Shaw and McGregor are sent to investigate. But what they find waiting is far from routine, as the local police have already discovered to their cost. Before the night is out, our heroes will encounter terror beyond their most appalling nightmares—in a place where the night may never end at all.

A new kind of horror story for modern America is written by Ennis with art by Sudžuka, colors by Ive Svorcina, and letters by Ron Steen. The first issue features a cover by Andy Clarke and Jose Villarrubia as well as a solid black variant.
