Where To Start Reading: Thor

Where To Start Reading Thor

Our “Where to Start” articles act as a guide, giving you our best suggestions on where to start on a certain character or creators work. Every article lists several books, each in the character’s or creator’s chronological order despite it’s publication date (so the first choice is at the beginning of a characters career, the last is the furthest along). While in order each book was specifically picked as a good individual starting point; so feel free to start at the beginning, in the middle, or towards the end if you want to get caught up quickly. And if you have any more suggestions or questions just leave a comment.

Avengers Prime #1 Review

Avengers Prime is a series that bridges the final moments of Siege and the start of the Heroic Age.  Chronologically speaking, this is the first adventure with Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, and Thor Odinson in years.  Frankly, Brian Michael Bendis’ first issue of the mini-series is intriguing and gives us much to look forward to.

It is said that all good things must come to an end.  And while this is generally true, I, for one, am glad that hasn’t been true for Kieron Gillen’s run on Thor.

Siege #4 Review

Siege #4 marks the end of one of the most satisfying events from Marvel in some time.  When it began, I questioned if this series was going to do the exact same thing that Secret Invasion and Civil War did – force us to have to continue reading just to get to the end of the full story.  Each of the previously mentioned stories didn’t have an ending that really left much of a lasting impression with anyone.  We had to wait for the true end of Civil War until Captain America #25 when Steve Rogers was “assassinated”.  And for Secret Invasion, the end was quick and left much to be desired – Osborn points gun at Skrull Queen and pulls the trigger.

Asgard has fallen and Ben Urich is in the middle of it all.  This is the final chapter of his firsthand report of Osborn’s Siege.  In this issue, he punches out ultra-conservative Todd Keller for refusing to help Asgardians trapped by the rubble, organizes some Asgardians in rescue efforts, and witnesses the defeat of the Void bringing the Avengers back together again.

Brian Michael Bendis pulls down the curtain on his first volume of New Avengers.  This issue acts as a bridge from Siege to the next volume starting in June and is probably the most action packed of the final issues of the Avengers titles released this week.  But it isn’t without some minor problems.  Spoilers ahead.

And so it ends.  My favorite Avengers book over the past three years is taking it’s final bow.  This issue mostly takes place prior to Siege #4.  So, there are some spoilers ahead in this review.

This marks the swan song of Norman Osborn’s Dark Avengers.  As Siege ends, there are some messes to clean up here and there.  Brian Michael Bendis will be your janitor to help get those things put back in order.
