This comic has been soooo good. I just read and then re-read issue #4 yesterday and still can’t get over how enjoyable it was. I’m dying to read #5 already. This preview looks very promising. I especially love many of the facial expressions Samnee gives his characters.

That is just fantastic story telling all around.

Very much looking forward to the eventual collection of this series, and hoping that Samnee continues to get a lot of work. Reminds me a lot of Gabriel Hardman, and I really enjoy them both.

Maybe I’ll have to finally pick this series up one of these days…

yeah, this series is solid gold!

Easily the best Marvel book since Nextwave. This stuff is utterly perfect in every way. What every superhero comic should aspire to, really. Langridge can pace a story beautifully, and he’s created a nigh perfect dynamic for the cast. Jane Foster is simply wonderful, and the fish-out-of-water Thor makes a tired trope seem fresh again. Samnee’s Rude- and Toth-inspired art is peerless, and Matt Wilson’s remarkably restrained colours suit it perfectly. Everybody who loves comics needs to be reading this book!

It is looking good.

At first I as put off by Thor’s youthfulness but the artwork id excellent and storyline looks grea. Plus I like the idea of a Namor/Thor fight – seems like its been awhile?
