OMG!! OMG!!! OMG!!! That was pretty much me during this issue! Sorry that there hasn't been any reviews in a while, uni got very busy. But it is ok, I am back, and what an issue to return on! After many months, her identity is revealed, and I am very happy! But, we will discuss that more later shall we? Unfortunately, this series ends with this issue. I am very sad about, but I don't think it is the end for this Thor, this is only the beginning!
The issue starts off where the last one ended, with Odinson bringing nearly all of Marvel's female lineup to help Thor take on the Destroyer, who is being controlled by Odin's brother Cul. Despite everyone's abilities and powers, no one is even making a dent. Enter some awesomeness from Freyja to end the battle. Once everyone has returned home, Odinson once again tries to get Thor to reveal her identity, stating he already know who she is, but just wants her to admit it. Then the woman he suspected shows up disproving his (and many others) theory, Thor gets away before further questioning, and Odinson is left flustered and frustrated. We however, are let in on Thor's little secret.
I would like to congratulate Jason Aaron on a great series, full of suspense, humour, action and all around entertaining. The art in this issue, done by Russell Dauterman and Matthew Wilson, is as always just gorgeous. I've seen complaints about the art in this series, and honestly wonder if those people are reading the same comic as I am. I don't know about you, but I am definitely looking forward to this Thor's further adventures.

Who is this mysterious new Thor? Well the Odinson is on a mission to find out! Seriously he has a list of suspects. Meanwhile the All-father is pissed that a woman has taken his son's hammer and running around being awesome. Plus Thor is fighting the Absorbing Man, who is pretty angry that she exists and her and Freyja have a nice little chat on the moon. This issue was really cool and probably my favourite so far. Sidenote: I wasn't able to finish my review of issue four before this issue was released, hence no review for that, and I was away for a month during the time issue three was released. Sorry about that. Anyway, back to the comic. We have a different artist on this issue by the name of Jorge Molina. Even though it's a different artist, I still really liked the art, especially the strong lines, that just kind of my thing. I get the feeling that Jason Aaron is really enjoy's keeping Thor's identity from us. C'mon dude, it's been five issues!!! Thought there is a few storylines going on, the comic flows together nicely, and the separate stories don't feel jarring. Good job to all!! Spoilers under the cut.
Welcome to my first review! At least in blog form. I've decided to use this blog to do comic reviews, and up first is Thor #2 (2014) If you would like to know my basic thoughts on Thor #1, watch my October Comic Wrap Up on Youtube. Let us begin. So in Thor #1 we find out that our original Thor is no longer worthy to hold Mjolnir, and at the end of the issue a mystery woman takes his place. Thor #2 is the first issue in which we really get to our new Thor in action, since she only appears right at the end of the first issue. Basically the problem in this issue is Frost Giants.
I've got a whole lot of pointless trivia up in my brain, including the Flash's middle name. You are very likely to find some area of me covered in art supplies such as paint, marker or pencil. Known for getting Milo on my nose and being way into Robin
