    Interesting story that puts a twist on the events that have occurred in the most recent Thor comics with the science fiction surrounding the existence of M.O.D.O.K.

    The comic has a short story where Thor reforges Mjolnir by taking all those cracks out of it.

    Art is amazing, full of details with textures that gives it a sense of realism. Each page is an instant cult comic art.

    Thor Annual 2023 is epic, with high stakes and a brand-new villain. Paired with a backup that hints at what we’re in store for with future Thor stories, this book is an easy pickup for casual, lapsed, and dedicated fans alike.

    Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing have an innate ability to identify the critical elements of a character and showcase them in a way that leaves fans with a welcomed new appreciation of what they do and what they mean to the larger world around them. The same is true of Marvel’s Thor Annual #1, though Thor isn’t the only recipient of this attention and effort. The mysterious MYTHOS receives some of that attention as well, and while I won’t spoil who it is here, it was a welcome and unexpected discovery. Thor’s changed quite a bit over the years, but that hasn’t kept him from comparing his decisions to those of his Father. While that is true of the Annual as well, it’s done in such a way that felt more full circle rather than retreading old ground, and the work of artist Ibrahim Roberson and colorist Dan Brown goes a long way in these moments hitting effectively. Some of the most powerful moments in the issue are those where only a few words are said, though when the action is called for, it doesn’t disappoint in the least. The epilogue offers a lovely hook for adventures to come as well, so whether you’ve been following along the whole time or are just wanting to jump in the deep end, Thor Annual #1 is a book well worth your time.

    But Why Tho?

    Thor Annual #1 is a fantastic rainbow bridge between two eras of Thor. It is a book filled with fun, simply placing two extremely powerful beings against each to fight it out. But at the beginning and the end, there are those connections to the main series that show this doesn’t have any impact. Even when it is a fight between two figures, it has to use an entire broken city as their playground. After this release, Thor will have the ten realms to take care of, so this release is warranted and welcome.

    I was excited for this Annual, but I was surprised by just how much I enjoyed it. It’s the best kind of popcorn action comic- a punch-em-up with depth.

    A nice one and done story with Thor which makes a change from all of the stories he seems to be in where it goes over multiple different comic books which do not make sense if you only read one of them. There is also a prologue included for a new storyline.

    This is a more serious version of Thor and also MODOK who is played as a comedy character in a lot of his stories and including the recent Antman movie.

    For this one I would recommend it to Thor completionists or anyone who just want a Thor story and already have the one where he punches the Hulk so hard they destroy a planet.
