    Grønbekk once again shows that she’s one of the better writers to work with Thor and the Asgardians for Marvel. An impressively entertaining story comes to a close that seems to match the overall feel and execution of ancient Norse tales. Thor continues to be an integral part of the magical end of the Marvel Universe in another deeply satisfying adventure. Loki makes an impressive supporting appearance. Grønbekk does such a good job with Hela that the goddess of the underworld comes across as someone who would be fun in her own title.

    Shocking, moving and revealing end of a saga.

    Both arts are different and focus on narrating two parallel subplots, Juan Gedeon’s art has more textures, while Sergio Davila’s is more detailed and colorful.

    The Story: Gronbekk brings this tale to an epic and thoughtful end with great moments for Thor, Odin and more. I enjoyed the heartfelt moments within it as well as the humor and the bittersweet moments with Odin as he accepts his fate. It’s a great moment that not only frees Odin, but also Thor and I look forward to seeing where the story goes as Thor fully steps into the role of king.

    The Art: Davila and Gedeon have wonderful, complementary art styles and they work beautifully together to weave the different times and places together into something wonderful to see on the page.

    Thor #35 was up against a set of unfair circumstances, and didn’t manage to rise above them and be something worthwhile.

    Thor #35 is the finale to this Thor run and it tries its best to wrap up everything it can into as neat of a bow as possible. As expected, not everything is handled well, some character resolutions are rushed, some story elements are overlooked if not outright abandoned, like Thanos and the Black Stone. Surprisingly, the endings to the stories with Thor and his father Odin are a little unexpectedly wholesome. The creative team do their best to give this story arc as clean a conclusion as possible, but sadly they fail to stick the landing.

    The final chapter of the current Thor series arrives and attempts to settle the disrupted run and its ideas on some stable ground before The Immortal Thor arrives in August. Thor #35 is split between two timelines; in the past Thor reunites Leah with her father Loki in a reflective and melancholy sequence with finely detailed portrayals of past legends, while in the present a final battle resolves an ongoing conflict involving Doctor Doom and Hela in a much more rushed fashion. It’s the storytelling and gestures to Nordic mythology that make the first half of the equation work well. Even if there’s nothing terribly exciting about the proceedings, Thor’s mature approach to events and carefully guarded words provide a grander sense of scope. Yet the current affairs make Thor’s world seem small by comparison as treaties between villains are quickly resolved and massive dragons are dispatched off-panel in depictions that won’t leave any lingering eyes. Thor #35 reflects the run it concludes well in that it never quite coheres, but offers some gems amidst a lot of messiness.
