Nice fresh take. Precision than brute force.

Decent story and art. A bit confused on the whole Nick Fury thing. Introduces the new Thor but doesn't reveal her identity.

Great book! Loved

Injects a long-overdue dose of female fury into the testosterone-soaked tales of Asgard's toughest hero. A lot of fun, with glowing art.

Loved it!!! I laughed out loud several times. The sarcasm between the characters is great.

Comics have done female versions of their male protagonists since the very beginning in a bid to protect the rights to a character. This book is not part of that copyright battle.
Female-Thor is amazing for stepping into a world already well inhabited by the Son of Odin and still coming out strong. Great artwork, great story-line, highly recommend.

A very interesting spin on the Thor story. I also really like how the original Thor is still in the picture.

Even in her own gn, the Odinson still shines brighter than the new Thor. I don't know if finding out her identity will help or hinder that fact.

I like Jason Aaron. I like the New Thor. I like the new direction. The Old Thor isn't kicked to the curb - he's still very much a part of the story. But the new Thor deserves to be the focal point. Well done. I was one of those who was skeptical about this but Aaron has done a great job of making me an interested believer.

A new era (for as long as it lasts) for Asgard, as the god of thunder finds himself unworthy of his hammer, while it's taken up by a woman as the new goddess of thunder. Both Thors feature prominently in this first collection, and the writing and art serve the story well.
