PICKS OF THE WEEK - Jan. 1, 2020
- THOR #1: Thor is back and more badass than ever in this new series launch from the bad boy of comics himself Donny Cates and super star artist Nic Klein. As the new king of Asgard settles into his new role, calamity does not wait as Galactus falls in blazing glory on the shores of Asgard bringing some terrible news with him. Cates is on absolute fire with this one, taking Thor down a road you’d be surprised no writer has done yet considering the continuity of the character. But it is happening now and the result is electric. Klein’s art makes this whole issue feel epic and helpless as the weight of what Thor must do and face to save the Universe once again is both dark and deep. This is a AAA title that may end up being a new classic if Cates and Klein can pay their cards right, because the God of thunder is back and he is here with a booming vengeance.
