    I spend quite a lot of time here but I mostly talk about my appreciation of the current books. I make no excuses for my love for very early Thor but I wasnít born at that point so itís not really...

    Ultimately this whole run has been a disappointment to me. It showed promise very briefly but never really found its feet. Bunn seems to suggest it suffered because of tie-ins but ultimately I am not...

    No that wasn't what I was suggesting at all. Indeed most of Aaron has been standard wish-fulfilment fare on the surface and that was the main reason I liked it. Indeed much of modern Thor and most of...

    Some more tie-in thoughts:

    Champions #6
    This is only really for those reading Champions already, and even then it isn’t very satisfying. Great to see the Disir back, but this issue feels less...

    Well you bring up a very notable point by comparing other appreciation threads. Many of them are indeed the same. Surely that tells us more about comic book appreciation and the threads themselves...

    I generally agree but this is the trade-off. Event books are partially marketing. They are essentially designed to do this. It may be that Marvel’s experiments with 10-12 issue weekly books like the...

    They flesh out things only partially. Most of their key incident is included in the main books so they are absolutely not required reading. A lot of the material is just repeated from a different...

    We had a period between Oct 2004 and July 2007 no ongoing Thor titles were being made. We purely had mini-series. Most of them are non-canonical. That could have continued. The preproduction of the...

    If you look at the timeline JMS was already writing the movie when he was hired. I am not making a comment about the timeline of the individual Thor minis, just that this was all we had for a long...

    We don't actually have any idea of the demographic that are enjoying it. While it may have a wider demographic than some books, I suspect many are men over 30 or even like me men over 50. I imagine...

    I think it is easy to forget how dead Thor was. If it wasn’t for the movie coming up we may never have got the book back. It would have been viable to maintain IP with the occasional mini and just...

    My concern at the time was it could have become the new Thor. For a while it was very popular and if they had chosen that route they would have ditched the past entirely. It was a touch and go time...

    No you mistake my inference. I found it a sad time to be a Thor fan when Thor was out of continuity. I am sure most of us did, but I wasn't speaking for anyone else. I wasn't aware anyone was so...

    The whole thing is quite dense, but its only a couple of trades so its not too much of a chore. I did the same.

    Well its not a chore at all because it is great but you know what I mean.

    Take the hint. It takes two people to have an argument. I know you don't agree with me, but I am not going to argue. It is sufficient to make my point clear and I have done that. You made your points...

    Don’t get me wrong. It was a perfectly serviceable origin. But it is not an examined origin. For a while it was almost forgotten and we often had whole runs where the Asgardians were just depicted as...

    It has always happened. It will always happen. If you don’t like that then comics may not be for you anymore. Static canon was a phenomenon of a brief window of the history of comics. It is possible...
