Ragnarok #5 (of 6)

   For those of us who were fans of writer / artist Walt Simonson's work the Marvel's The Mighty Thor, this series has been a blast from the past.


   Set long after the fall of the Norse Gods in the final battle known as Ragnarok, the series shows the revival of the powerful creature known as the Stone God, who seems... familiar.

   The skeletal god wields a familiar-looking weapon - a powerful hammer.

    Despite their attempts at being coy, a time or two they've slipped up and revealed his real name  - Thor.

   The former Thunder God has embarked on a quest to discover what happened to Asgard and his friends and family.

   To that end, his quest leads him to Mirmir's Well, where Odin gained wisdom at the cost of an eye.

   Is the well still there, and if so, what price will SG have to pay to get answers?

   This has been a terrific series, with amazing, powerful, Earth-shattering art by Simonson, who seems to be having a lot of fun back in the old playground (or at least a version of it).

   It's a great series - I hate to see it end!

Grade: A
