Thor, one of the Best books Marvel is putting out right now, is wrapping up the God Bomb storyline in such an amazing and epic way.
If Jason Aaron wrote every Marvel book, I would be happy and broke. Just when I think Thor can’t get any better, he writes something even more amazing. There’s not just one Thor, but three, Past, Present and Future Thors. Not many writers can balance all of their personalities and really make sure that they are true to their timeline. Not to mention they all work together so nicely and compliment each other.
In Thor #11, “The Last Prayer,” we see so much of the faith the Gods have in Thor. This is the great final battle between Thor and Goor. All the Gods that have ever been born, or will be born, are to be killed. There is nothing that can stop the God Bomb. Or is there? Goor started as a kid begging the Gods for sustenance. Then when he gave up all hope that gods existed, he found that to be untrue and vowed to rid the earth of all divinity. The God Bomb was thus created to explode through all of time and kill every god, a weapon that would end Thor as well s all the gods. “A vision of one God with a mighty hammer in each hand, fighting at the heart of all bomb to save them all”. Thor is good, and strong and everyone believes in him. That kind of goodness can’t lose!
Now Ribics art, can you say fantastic? It is like a mix of dark watercolors, and with all the shading going on, makes for a beautiful masterpiece. Aaron and Ribic have been bringing us these beautiful comics for 11 issues. This team up has been bringing new and old Thor fans together.
If you have been living in Mordor and not reading Thor, now is the time to pick it up. You can easily catch up or just jump right in. The story, art and humor this team brings are why Thor is at the top of a lot of read piles.
