    Roxxon Presents: Thor #1 is a comic book artifact made real. It’s the issue that the Minotaur gives Thor to read, an issue that – with the help of Enchantress and Skurge the Executioner – will rewrite Thor’s existence to better synergize with the Roxxon Corporation’s corporate goals. As part of Al Ewing’s ongoing The Immortal Thor story, Roxxon Presents: Thor #1 is a crucial look at a core theme, what corporately-owned comics and other mass media could do – or is it, have done – to how we tell stories. And within these pages, Ewing makes the case for why that is a vitally important thing to consider.

    This turn of the arc begun in The Immortal Thor is brilliant and crudely creative, where it slaps us with our current reality and the banality that the city drives us with social networks, which are taken advantage of by corporations.

    This tie-in to The Immortal Thor is a comic book artifact that feels so real with the Roxxon Corporation putting out their own Thor comic that takes liberties with the character but is heavy on the corporate side (I still chuckle over Thor having an alter-ego known as Chad Hammer); The rewriting of Thor’s history makes for great satire (which Al Ewing has fun with) and shows that with an issue like this can have some edginess to it but at the same time, can get some laughs in, therefore making this a great read.

    Roxxon Presents: Thor #1 is an interesting intellectual exercise. It is also uproariously funny, even as it makes you think. This is a fine comic in the tradition of the works of Dennis O’Neil and Dwayne McDuffie, and well worth reading.

    Roxxon Presents: Thor #1 is a fun experiment in taking a side adventure into a possible nightmare version of a corporatized Thor. Serving as a commentary on corporate greed with nods to real-world consumer options, this is an enjoyable and truly unique read.

    Self-parody but self-parody with a purpose. The machinations of the rich and powerful are presented in a silly comic book, lulling the readers into a false sense of irony so that they miss the real dangers. I can only hope I’ve given an adequate view of the story as it works on several levels and is full of tiny details (such as hinting at the huge number of advertisements surrounding the comic story which have been “omitted” in the online version) with blatant product placement. This is one of the most “meta” Marvel comics I’ve seen.

    Comic Watch

    Roxxon Presents: Thor #1 is an outstandingly funny, gloriously trashy satire of brand-sponsored comics.
