DEATH OF THE MIGHTY THOR Part 1 The final judgement comes as the Mangog arrives! The War Thor will meet the beast head on. But even the bloodthirst of this Ultimate Thor may pale in comparison to the might of the Mangog! The battle rages as Jane's cancer takes a turn for the worse, and she might not have to wait for the final judgment at all. The clock is ticking, and no hammer can save her this time. It's the beginning of the end that will lead to the most dramatic return in the Marvel Universe! PLUS: Includes 3 bonus MARVEL PRIMER PAGES! Rated T+

What Red Shirt Comics said:

Anybody who's spoken to me about Thor, knows my MASSIVE appreciation for Jason Aaron's work. He's really delved deep into the lore and written a fantastic Thor, regardless of whether it's the Mighty or the Unworthy, or even the new War Thor. He's found a way to capture the voice of Thor and refract it through the prism of whomever the story requires. His God Butcher arc was masterful as he had a book where three Thor's of different ages had to work together alongside his own 3 granddaughters. To have 6 such similar voices still ring true and individualistic while simultaneously weaving a heartbreaking and powerful story was epic. And he has continued to wow me with Jane Foster weilding Mjolner. Russell Dauterman's art is wonderfully detailed and the colors, WOW. This book is 64 pages of awesome.

DC Pick of the Week:

Batman: The Drowned #1

As the events of DARK NIGHTS: METAL rock the DC Universe, the creatures of the Dark Multiverse stand ready to invade our world! How can even the World's Greatest Heroes stop a horde of deadly beings that appear to be powerful, nightmare versions of familiar figures? Find out in these special tie-in issues!

What Red Shirt Comics said:

Okay, I relent... After catching a bit of flak (you know who you are haha!) for not picking a Metal book for a pick last week, I've picked the Drowned this week! I try to stick with books that are good jumping on points but these character one-shots are ALL good stand alones. All fantastic and dark re-imaginings of everyone's favorite pointy eared detective (and I don't mean Spock.)

Other Pick of the Week:

The Family Trade #1

$3.99
