The Immortal Thor #9

Marvel Comics

Written by Al Ewing

Art by Ibrahim Roberson

Colors by Matthew Wilson

Letters by Joe Sabino

The Rundown: Thor goes after the head of Roxxon and discovers a dark secret that will change his world.

After his meeting with Gaea and the fateful words she left him with, Thor decides to return to Midgard and face down one of the people who could hasten the destruction of humanity, Roxxon president Dario Agger. A meeting that will lead to a dangerous revelation about the minotaur’s plans for humanity.

Thor realizes the scope of the plan, but it might be too late when Skurge and Enchantress attack with a weapon Thor was not prepared for. A weapon that will see him bound to Agger in a way that could change his story forever.

The Story: Ewing crafts an interesting story in this issue with some interesting stakes for Thor. Unfortunately, the story also failed to connect with me because I’ve been reading the previous arcs and this issue feels like every lesson Thor has learned in his role as the All-Father got thrown out of the window for the sake of him making a rash decision that ultimately leads to ruin for him. It removes so much character growth and development that it feels like a waste.

The Art: Roberson delivers some beautiful art in the issue and I love the breaking of the fourth wall in several scenes and what is signifies about Thor’s new challenge.

    This Thor run by Ewing is very uneven at best.
