Book: Thor: God of Thunder #24
Writer: Jason Aaron
Artist(s): Agustin Alessio and Esad Ribic
Colorists: Ive Svorcina
Summary from Comixology: THE LAST DAYS OF MIDGARD AFTERMATH Thor’s battle against ROXXON has colossal ramifications for all of Asgard. And also for… Jane Foster? While in the far future, what dark fate has befallen Galactus at the hands of the King Thor?
This book was the better conclusion then the previous issue, the last book was #23 and the 5th and final book in the story, but this issue ties everything up very well. Reading the book, you can definitely tell that the art is not Esad Ribic for most of the book, but that’s not the most devastating problem we could face. The book was a real solid read and of course Jason Aaron leaves us hanging and wanting to know what will happen next..
The story writing has always been really strong on this book. This is easily one of the best books that Marvel is publishing. The dynamic between Thor and S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Solomon is really entertaining, in the book everyone refers to Agent Solomon as “Thor’s Girlfriend” and she’s not to fond of that. In this issue the Asgardians are banned from Earth and must remove Asgard from above Broxton Oklahoma. (You have no clue how happy this makes me, that has always been the stupidest thing about Thor for me.) It was really nice seeing Jane Foster again, and it’s also interesting how she refuses to want the use of magic to cure her cancer. It is also extremely interesting seeing how Dario Agger/The Minotaur will play out in the future and all the problems that he will bring to Thor.
As I said in the overview, the art is not Ribic for most of the book and you can really tell. I don’t mean that in a bad way, but for me it was the weakest part of the book. The art was nice, but for the epilogue of such a great story, it would have been nice to have the same artist from the past five issue on top of this book as well. Besides me not liking change, there wasn’t much else to be found wrong with this book.
The Final Say:
Thor: God of Thunder #25 will be your best jumping on point, this was a solid conclusion/epilogue to a fun story. As I have said previously, you really should purchase the trades and get caught up on this book. It’s a great serious and will blow your mind. This issue deserves a solid 3 out of 4. You should pick this up so you can be excited for the next issue! If you read this, let us know what you thought in the comments below.
