But what IS the weapon Bor created? And with Doom hell-bent on controlling free will itself, what does that spell for Thor’s sister Laussa, trapped in time between the present and the future?

    The plot remains steeped in mystery as the weapon Bor created is revealed.

    Art
    It has many textures and works a lot on facial expressions and uses a very pale color palette.

    Finally, Thor meets Doom—for five seconds. Old timey Marvel comics has spoiled us, training us to expect violence as drama to please our inner eight-year-old. So anyway, stuff is happening and, as usual, I’m not certain I’m understanding all the nuances. Or even some of the big points.

    Last month, artist Nic Klein was replaced by Juan Gedeon, perhaps best known for his work on Venom and DC’s dino-themed miniseries Jurassic League. (Klein has stuck around as the series’ cover artist.) In those comics, Gedeon showed himself as an adept cartoonist with an affinity for energetic fight scenes and visual humor. And while Gedeon’s Thor work is unquestionably that of a skilled artist, it also feels much more reserved. Fight scenes are undoubtedly energetic but not as high-octane or creatively framed as his work on those other series. Given Thor’s grittier tone, it’s understandable that Gedeon’s artwork is less playful by comparison. That said, he may have overdone it a bit when it comes to conveying how serious the series is. Characters scowl and grit their teeth to TMJ disorder-inducing extent, undermining the emotional breadth of Grønbekk’s script. Matt Wilson renders Gedeon’s artwork much less than he did Klein’s, which is an intuitive change as Gedeon’s style is less realistic. Nonetheless, Wilson’s colors still leave Gedeon’s work flat. Gedeon’s work on Thor has the potential to be every bit as memorable as Klein’s, but if that will be the case remains to be seen.

    Thor #33 is a competent comic filled with unkept promises and unanswered questions. We can only hope the comic’s creators find their footing again soon.

    Thor #33 continues the journey as the God of Thunder finds himself in Latveria to face Dr. Doom. Unfortunately, the comic’s actual story isn’t as exciting as the synopsis makes it out to be. The comic tries exceptionally hard to show how epic and dire things are in the story, but they fall a little flat due to the art, character dialogue, and narration. Hopefully the next issue brings things back up a notch.

    The good stuff here begins and ends with Nic Klein’s cover. Everything after that is, at best, a lifeless mess. Throwing Thanos into the mix may draw some attention, but he only makes the story more convoluted.
