    Al Ewing and Martin Coccolo deliver a thunderous finale to the series’ first arc with a pulse-pounding showdown that throws Thor and the reimagined Thor Corps against Toranos, a threat that could crack the very fabric of reality. Coccolo’s art is the standout in the issue, flourishing in the action sequences, capturing the chaotic beauty of godly warfare with vivid colors and dynamic panel layouts. Each member of the Thor Corps looks elegantly powerful and he continues to depict Toranos as a truly existential threat fit for the Gods. His art has blown my mind multiple times in this still young series and he blew it even further here. Ewing’s story is a triumphant conclusion to an epic arc. It’s a comic that delivers big on action, character development, and philosophical depth.

    The Immortal Thor #5 ends the first arc in Al Ewing’s run with a suitably epic battle to save the world. Ewing’s resolution to the Toranos problem is clever, and the art team’s delivery looks as epic as it should.

    Immortal Thor’s first arc ends as brilliantly as it began. Al Ewing redefines what it means to be Thor. No longer is Thor’s strength in the ability to wield the storm, but the fact that he is worthy of doing so, his virtue becoming not a test to pass or a price to pay for power, but an asset. Along with the conclusion of the Utgard-Thor’s showdown with the new Thor Corps, Immortal Thor #5 gives us the origin of the Utgard gods, those first elder gods who preceded mortals. Martin Coccolo once again gives us opening a page that could stand alone as an iconic bit of imagery, linking Toranos’ wheel to the world, and his framing of the Utgard-Thor as barely fitting within each panel, sometimes even spilling over, never lets the reader forget his immensity even in comparison to the gods to towers over. The concluding revelations promise plenty of mystery to unpack in future issues and tease Thor’s next opponent in a contest ripe with potential for meta-commentary. With its first arc in the books, Immortal Thor is absolute must-read material.

    The Story: A thrilling and action filled conclusion to the Toranos storyline. There is some great action throughout the story and I really enjoyed Thor using his mind to defeat his enemy. I like the consistent evolution of the character both in motivation and strategy. I look forward to seeing where this story goes next.

    The Art: Coccolo delivers beautiful art on every page of the issue. The visuals perfectly capture the thrills, action and suspense of the story itself.

    Immortal Thor #5 concludes the fight between Thor and his new Thor Corps against the gargantuan Toranos. The art in this comic is great thanks to the art team, who make this comic look epic. Meanwhile, the actual fight is a little disappointing, and Toranos is an underwhelming villain as he doesn’t do much except spout threats and throw his giant wheel. However, Thor’s plan to defeat him is creative and a little cheesy in essence but it fits him, his newfound status, and this series, and I’m still excited to see more.
