The Mighty Thor Volume 4: The War Thor Review

One of the best things about Jason Aaron’s The Mighty Thor being released in both hardback and softcover is the delight in rediscovering the comic’s intense beauty mixed with the pain brought through each character.  Whether it’s Jane Foster’s battle with cancer, Thor’s struggle with legitimacy and the Asgardian patriarchy, Odin or Odinson’s dealing with overwhelming loss, or Volstagg grappling with the heartless murder of children at the hands of the Queen of Cinders, pain and beauty run through this entire series.  With Russel Dauterman and Valerio Schiti providing art and Matthew Wilson’s unreal colors, the entire book glows.

Jane Foster takes a back seat in this volume for a bit in favor of Volstagg’s story of pain and the discovery of a mysterious hammer that transforms his inner rage into the War Thor, a warrior with a desire only for revenge.  Throughout the series, Aaron has centered tragedy as a motivator for all of his characters, driving them forward through their struggles.  This volume is no different.

Dauterman and Schiti have provided some amazing art, including a gorgeous splash page of the moment before The War Thor and Thor meet in combat.  If past is prologue, reuniting Aaron, Dauterman, and Wilson for “War of the Realms” will be a sight to behold.  I, for one, cannot wait.

Is it good?

Stories of triumph through pain involving multiple well-developed characters
Beautiful art and color as always
Gets away from Jane Foster's Thor a bit much, focusing mostly on the War Thor
