Read full description of the books Thor, Vol. 3:This is the final premiere hardcover that collects Straczynski’s run on Thor. The relaunch of this title had an interesting genesis. The concept of Thor and Asgard reincarnated in the mortal plane of Earth was originated by Neil Gaiman. He would have been the writer for the new title had his schedule permitted it. Instead, Mark Millar ran with the concept for a little while only to drop out have Straczynski scoop it up. In fairness, my least favorite writer did make it into a consistent top 20 selling title and it was fresh new take on Thor.
Straczynski’s final arc completes the return of the Asgardians to the Marvel Universe. It also had as its heart two love stories: one is Thor’s and Sif’s and the other a much maligned romance between the mortal Oklahoman Bill and the immortal Kelda. It doesn’t end well for one of the couples though. Straczynski’s final arc seems to have lost a lot of its initial snap and crackle when it was initially relaunched. It may have to do with artist Oliver Coipel skipping the story in favor of working on the Siege miniseries. The book had a lot of promise but here it ends with an Asgardian diaspora, Thor depowered and Don Blake limping again. There isn’t a chance for a blank slate to help the next writer spin his own take on Lee and Kirby’s Thor. It may be that Straczynski had further plans for the character that will no longer be explored now that he left Marvel for the competition.
