    The Story: Ewing delivers another great story that expands on the mythology of the character as well as giving Thor a deeper insight into his own past. The Thor/Loki dynamic within the story continues to be compelling and layered in its complexity and Loki has a presence that is both welcoming and menacing. You never know if the character is going to help Thor or plunge a knife into him and that dangerous element makes the story more appealing.

    The Art: Coccolo delivers great art that is reminiscent of some of the best visual depictions of Thor from the classic comics.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Immortal Thor #6 begins the next phase of Thor’s journey to unravel the mysteries of Utgard and its elder gods. The art team did a solid job with the design for the different locations that each set a distinct mood for the story. It’s also nice to see young Thor and Loki in their classic designs going on an adventure together as the tone of their part of the story, as well as the art for the location, feel like they’re straight out of a classic Disney fairy tale film. While not too much happens in this comic, there’s enough to get things started and set the tone for the next part of Thor’s adventure.

    Comic Book Revolution

    Immortal Thor #6 is carried by the incredible chemistry between Thor and Loki. Al Ewing and Martn Cccolo did an excellent job at elevating that chemistry with a story that creates a lot of questions as to what comes next. That follow-up will be an important factor in this second arc either being a filler story or a strong continuation of this young creative run.

    The Immortal Thor #6 opens at a metatextual angle with a comic book panel within the first panel depicting the fire around which Loki and Thor share a tale of their past exploits. Al Ewing draws a line between the flame and printed page as storytelling devices, with the latter now owned by a capitalistic villain, as the ending reminds us. The issue’s abrupt end is its weak point and feels haphazardly attached, but the rest of the issue moves at a deliberate pace as Loki recounts the tale of Thor’s first meeting with the Utgard gods. The issue’s most memorable moment is when Thor interrupts the telling after a scene in which the casual cruelty Thor once inflicted on his adoptive brother is on display. Thor apologizes in a touching display made intimate by Martin Coccolo’s delicate linework and Matthew Wilson’s soft colors, and a composition consisting of nothing the two siblings, Thor is forced to remember and regret the sins of an unhumbled, popular youth playfully and ignorantly inflicting pain on a loved one forced to carry that with them for years. Loki’s response only hints at the complicated nature of their relationship with their brother, leaving the reader with something to chew on after closing the issue.

    Discover stories within stories in The Immortal Thor #6. This issue takes its time getting going while also serving as the first part of the story, cementing the fact that it’s a good setup but not quite enough satisfaction to satiate a monthly reader. That isn’t to say the setup isn’t good, because it is, but as a single issue, it leaves you wanting. Still, I’m dying to know what the creative team does with the comic inside this story.

    Immortal Thor #6 looks great, sounds great, and immerses you in a tale that reads like an epic poem from Viking lore. Unfortunately, the overwritten dialog and glacial pacing make the reading experience a bit of a bore.
