Tuesday’s top picks: Mighty Thor #7

Why would I be excited about Mighty Thor after Fear Itself #7, since I wasn’t a fan of Fear Itself from the beginning? Might Thor #7 gives Matt Fraction time to develop and explain a character that wasn’t explained well in Fear Itself. This book might make me like Fear Itself and I really wanted to like Fear Itself. As a reader I want to like everything that I read, I don’t want to see a writer fail. That kind of thinking does no one any good. I want to see Fraction succeed with Thor because Thor is one of my all-time favorite characters. I grew in the Walt Simonson era of Thor, with epic battles, fighting giant monsters. Then the way that J. Michael Straczynski envisioned Thor was brilliant, how gods never die as long as we believe in them. Fraction is trying to do something different and I appreciate it, he just hasn’t found his Thor voice yet. Issue seven of Mighty Thor starts his fourth story arc with the world of Asgard and I wish him the best of luck.
