Matthew Wilson does the colors and helps give the art a very classic Marvel look, almost like it stepped out of the 60's or 70's. I will say I'm not a fan of this new costume. Thor shouldn't ever have a headband. The solicits say Thor #1-5, but the story is definitely Thor #1-#6. Read in single issues.

    I was a little concerned for anybody taking on Thor after Jason Aaron’s epic run and some of my concerns were manifest in this volume. Donny Cates immediately does what I hate new writers doing: he wastes no time in entirely sweeping away a lot of the big changes the previous writer made. So, one issue in and Thor’s already got his arm and eye back. (Not a spoiler: it’s on the front cover.)

I also can’t believe Cates is doing the whole ‘Thor-not-worthy-to-lift-Mjolnir’ bit again, immediately after Thor just had a multi-year story-arc re-establishing his worthiness after he lost it. Yaaawwwwn! (hide spoiler)] Sigh... I do wish new writers would change a character’s status quo organically, gradually rather than just setting fire to their predecessor’s work with a dismissive grunt. This gripe aside, I did quite like parts of the story. It certainly wasn’t lacking in action and it sowed some interesting seeds. If anything it was too epic, too quickly; it didn’t feel like the ‘epicness’ was earned, if you know what I mean. Honestly, I was sucked into the story at first but the more I think about it, the less I like it. Oh, and I hated the ending. (view spoiler)[Thanos? Really? AGAIN? I’m more than a little sick to the back teeth of Thanos. (hide spoiler)] The artwork was really good, though; I have no complaints on that front. Nic Klein did a great job.

    Thor feels the weight of a King now as he sits on the throne. When Galactus comes to him, not for a fight, but pleading for his help, the King of Asgard has a mission that might be too much even for him. Thor is on a mission to stop the Black Winter from coming. A force so powerful it'll wipe out everything. Galactus and Thor together go to planets so Galactus can feed off them to get stronger. However, Thor always gets people off the planets before he does such a thing. When the Black Winter ar Thor feels the weight of a King now as he sits on the throne.

However, Thor always gets people off the planets before he does such a thing. When the Black Winter arrives will both of them be able to withstand it or is it too powerful? One thing I love about this run so far is the art. Epic would be the word to describe it. And with that awesome art, Cates pushes Thor as a true God, able to show his power in in full force. The threat is probably the weakest part as the reveal isn't as fulfilling as I wanted. But the path there is filled with great moments and the very last couple of pages gets me hyped of what is to come. Thor is Cates newest Marvel project and it is shaping up to be as strong as his other work. A 4 out of 5.

    I admire Donny Cates for beginning his Thor run with the sort of universal extinction event that most writers would spend years working toward. (Though the whole "Winter is coming" thing seems familiar.) If this is where he is starting, where can he possibly go next? Anything is possible! Nothing is off the table! My problem is I'm not a fan of Marvel's cosmic mythology: Galactus, his heralds, and all that fiddle faddle.

My problem is I'm not a fan of Marvel's cosmic mythology: Galactus, his heralds, and all that fiddle faddle. And while this is not bad cosmic glop, it is still a lot of cosmic glop to have to swallow in a sitting. And Thor as a character is just depressing to visit with his brooding and darkness and daddy issues. I think it is time to take another extended break from his title.

But can even the Odinforce and the Power Cosmic stop something that powerful? And will Galactus' secrets save or destroy he and Thor's alliance? ...I like Donny Cates' writing, a lot.

But this book feels a little off. It's like he saw Jason Aaron's run on Thor and thought 'I can do better than that!' and set out to outdo him in his first six issues. This story doesn't feel like one Cates has earned the ability to tell just yet - as a result, the conclusion of it all feels hollow, and the consequences of it aren't half as interesting as they could have been. Taking Thor away from Asgard right away feels like a misstep. In fact, you could probably swap Thor out for another high powered cosmic character and still told this story, like the Silver Surfer. It's just...yeah, not as impressive as I wanted it to be. The art's great though - Nic Klein's flashy, splashy style is a good fit for the cosmic insanity of the later issues of the story, and he draws some cracking fight scenes. It should be difficult to make Thor punching a cloud look good, but somehow he manages it really well. Despite the art though, Donny Cates' first Thor volume doesn't feel quite right just yet. It goes too big too quickly, and skips past all the good character stuff that makes these big superhero moments worth getting to. Hopefully he can course correct for the second volume (which it looks like he will, given the first few issues), and put another great Thor run up on the shelves next to those who came before him.

    Man I had such high hopes for this since I’d been hearing such great things. This was just Ok. The set up was the best part. Really cool thing Cates does with Galactus’ origin. After the first issue or two I was sold. Then the rest of the book happened. The fight between Beta Ray Bill and Thor was so F’ing pointless. Wether it’s comics, TV shows or movies, I flarkin hate it when people fight over something that could have been explained in 5 seconds. Thor easily could have told Bill what Silver Man I had such high hopes for this since I’d been hearing such great things. This was just Ok. The set up was the best part.

Thor could have just sat him down and filled him in. No, instead the just fight. Then Sif steps in with her 2 cents when she knows the seriousness of Thor’s quest. Man I had to stop reading the comic and scream at the ceiling for a second. Then the end is more of what I just read in Jason Aaron’s run, Thor fighting some all black thing covering everything but with a slight sputter of an ending. Man this one hurt me a little bit. I know everyone loved this but I guess I’m in the minority, no pun intended. Hopefully this will find better footing in the next volume. P.S. sorry for the rant.

This volume starts off like all big Donny Cates stories, big, action-heavy focusing on clues of things to come and teases a lot of things and always has cool moment for the central character like Thor with BRB or Galactus and then with the throne on Asgard and the way he makes him so OP its epic! The art is sublime, simply outstanding and Nic is the perfect artist for this run!

    I love this so much. It’s such a unique take, and yet completely worthy of it’s predecessors. A fitting continuation of Jason Aaron’s run. What I wasn’t expecting was to learn so much about Galactus! There were some amazing callbacks to previous runs, some very fascinating foreshadows that I simply can’t wait to see brought to fruition. Nick Klein’s pencil work is great, and dare I say it? It gives the great Esad a run for his money! Bring on more Thor!

    The years-long run that Jason Aaron (and his stellar team of artists) had with Thor is one of my favorite in comics. So, while I like what I've read of Donny Cates, I was apprehensive about anyone trying to follow-up on the saga Aaron penned and didn't let myself have very high expectations. But man, if this first volume is any indication of what we can expect from Cates' and Thor, I'm all in.

But man, if this first volume is any indication of what we can expect from Cates' and Thor, I'm all in. The Devourer King doesn't have the immediate air of something iconic like the God Butcher storyline did when Aaron first started writing Thor, but it does have all of the mythos and mystery that a Thor comic should. It's bold and exciting, and I love the ideas Cates introduces here. He doesn't explore all of them with as much nuance as I wanted, and the primary threat never feels like a real danger, but the premise itself is phenomenal. I'm not going to spoil anything, but I love the character dynamics Cates introduces and love how his script allows for just as action-spectacle as it does for high-stakes debates between old friends (and enemies). Cates' voice is right at home in the pages of Thor, and I am 100% sticking around for whatever he's cooking up. The real star of this first volume is the art, though. As much as Cates' script succeeds in balancing the familiar with the new and unknown, Nic Klein and Matt Wilson's art is thrilling ways that feel entirely appropriate for the God of Thunder while still managing to feel like distinct from what's come before. Klein's linework is top-notch, and he draws his characters with a mythic scale and gravitas that is just as exciting to look at in action as it is in quieter moments of dialogue. And Wilson's colors are, as always, stunning, and his ability to bring Klein's work to vibrant, dynamic life is next-level stuff. The Devourer King may not rank among the best introductory arcs ever, but it offers a new take that's at once exciting in its ambition and familiar in its spectacle. I can't wait to see where this creative team takes Thor.

    I like Thor, but not enough to keep up with all the dry backstory that makes up this volume. A lot is thrown at the reader and I never really felt invested in the characters or anything that was going on, even though so much of it was tragic.

Galactus is the only thing that survived the last Black Winter, and he needs help if he will last this one. Bestowing the Power Cosmic on Thor, the King becomes Thor, Herald of Thunder! In order to save all the Realms, Thor helps Galactus eat 5 planets to make him powerful enough to stop the Black Winter, but constantly rebels against him, wanting to save all the people from the worlds before they are eaten. He is contested by both Beta Ray Bill and Sif, who is now Guardian of the Bifrost. Eventually, the combined power of Galactus and Thor are enough to be able to stop the end, but only after 2 things: 1) Thor steals the life energy from Galactus and kills him. 2) The Black Winter shows Thor his death: a Infinity Gem encrusted Mjolnir, wielded by Thanos, as he leads an army of 'Marvel Zombies'. Super action packed Volume.... what a way to start off a new run on Thor! Strong recommend! Great place to jump on if you haven't already read.

Not wanting to see the final void, Thor is now the new Herold of Galactus to save Yggdrasil. Can Thor do this?

    Much like the beginning of Jason Aaron's run (the Godbutcher story) this has the epic feel to it, filled with gravitas. It's a big threat and Thor rises to fight against it. At first the main plot felt a little repetitious, standard superhero fare, but Cates changes the formula, showing the reader some new stuff with Thor. He also plants the seeds for a few other things, and throws in a twist at the end. The only real complaint was the art.

    I have some fairly mixed feelings on this new direction for Thor. On one hand, it is way better than the last few years of Aaron’s run. It is a very serious and very action-packed introduction to Cates’ Thor that promises to be larger than life. However, it does seem reliant on crossovers, which is usually a turnoff for me. I would prefer brand new villains and new stories, not to see characters copy and pasted into other universes.

    It's a pretty good Galactus story, but I don't think it needed to be a Thor story as well. It seems like it largely served to hit the reset button on the less convenient changes Aaron made to Thor, namely his arm and eye, and to set up yet another Thanos conflict. I do think Cates had a good narrative voice for an Asgardian book, and I did like the brief, fond reference to DC as a dead universe, though. Didn't like that we're apparently doing yet another iteration of "But is Thor really worth?" It's a pretty good Galactus story, but I don't think it needed to be a Thor story as well.

    Dammn, I was not expecting that ending. I'm going to be honest every Thor comic I've read or attempted to read was always kind of boring, I don't know if it was the writing or the pacing of the stories or maybe if I hadn't chosen the right Thor story to read. But this was amazing and epic. I loved the art, and it was very fast paced and held my attention. Donny Cates is slowly becoming one of my favourite comic writers!

    This is the first time I am reading Donny Cates work and I must say I’m very impressed! This volume has twists and turns. There are serious parts but also parts that made me laugh. I love the artwork by Nick Klein as well. The attention to detail is amazing. I will be definitely continuing on with the volumes. If you haven’t picked this run up do not wait long! You don’t know what you are missing!

    A little on the boring side... I had heard good things of Donny Cates writing of comics. His ideas are interesting, just not executed very well. Also, I do not particularly like that this run has partially run written what happened before it. Thor had started to become more mentally healthy and sound and truly felt himself worthy... And now again he feels unworthy and unable wield Mjolnir properly. Ugh.

    I’m definitely being a bit overly generous with a 4 here but this story, as focused and self-contained as it is, was pretty interesting. I like that it really, even with other characters cameos, focused almost entirely on developing Thor and to a lesser extent, Galactus. I’m curious how this fits in to some of the other “Thor at the end of time” narrative beats leading into and coming out of War of the Realms, but I’m also curious where Loki goes from here.

    Donny Cates just loves Metal. That’s what he’s going for here. But I don’t know if he achieves it. The art is beautiful, but the story lifeless. Worse, it’s slow as heck. Give me an issue where more than one thing happens, instead of churning pages of Thor fighting abstract forces. Thor is low fantasy. He isn’t Metal.

    Thor is now King of Asgard and having a difficult time of it. Galactus shows up warning of a universe ending event called the Black Winter. They team up. Cosmic chaos ensues. I’m leaving out a lot of story details but this was a fun read with fantastic art and coloring.
