(CBR) On Wednesday, Oct. 1, an all-new Thor will wield the power of Mjolnir in the Marvel Universe, as Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman introduce a female God of Thunder to the publisher's superheroic lineup.
But before the debut issue arrives in stores, CBR has a pair of reviews of “Thor” #1, along with a new three-page preview showcasing the Asgardian Avenger's confusion and frustration at no longer being worthy to heft his mighty hammer. Check out the excerpts from the pair of 4-star reviews below, and be sure to check out the full impressions of both Meagan Damore's “Thor” #1 review and Doug Zawisza's “Thor” #1 review.
“”Thor” #1 is a transitionary piece that shifts the focus from the Odinson to the new Thor; though the new Thor certainly appears throughout the issue, she saves her heroic debut for the last few pages, with Odinson getting a good chunk of page time.”
