The Mighty Thor #8

In an odd turn of events, The Mighty Thor has been replaced - in his own comic - by a character named Tanarus.

This all springs out of the tragic conclusion to the Fear Itself mini-series, as (by means not yet revealed) Tanarus has completely replaced Thor in our "reality" - so from his earliest appearances, Thor's place has been taken by Tanarus.

It's all part of a complete change in the status quo. Odin has left Asgard in the control of a trio of goddesses - Freyja, Gaea and Idunn.

They're also rebuilding Asgard from where it fell on Earth (in Oklahoma) and adjusting to some surprising new inhabitants.

As always, the art by Pasqual Ferry is outstanding, from the glimpses of the new Asgard to the depiction of characters both godly and monstrous.

It's an interesting new direction for this book, with lots of surprises and unexpected events. The twist at the end suggests that this story is just kicking into gear.

Very promising so far.

Grade: A-
