More About the Author

Before joining Marvel Comics, writer Matt Fraction had already established his reputation as an emerging new talent with his work on Last of the Independents. Fraction's tale of a bank robbery gone wrong earned him a coveted "A" grade from Entertainment Weekly, as well as interest from Marvel. After taking on a short story assignment in the anthology title X-Men Unlimited, Fraction was handpicked to launch two of Marvel's biggest projects for 2006: Punisher War Journal with artist Ariel Olivetti, and Immortal Iron Fist, with co-writer Ed Brubaker and artist David Aja. Both series met with overwhelming critical and fan acclaim, selling out their respective first issues within days of release. This led to two even bigger projects: The launching of Invincible Iron Man, a high-profile first issue premiering the same month as the blockbuster film; and Uncanny X-Men, written in tandem with Immortal Iron Fist partner Brubaker. In addition to his Marvel work, Fraction writes Casanova, an off-beat series illustrated by Gabriel Bá which recently moved to Marvel's Icon imprint. He is also a talented filmmaker and graphic designer, heading up the MK12 firm with a worldwide client base that includes Adidas, MTV and Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. Fraction remains one of Marvel's most popular writers; other credits include The Order and Thor: Ages of Thunder.

There may be spoilers ahead...

Matt Fraction continues to tell the tales of the Odinson in his run on The Mighty Thor. In this volume, which collects issues 7 - 12 and 7.2 of Fear Itself, we find out what has happened to Thor in the aftermath of the Serpent War.

To recap, Odin's evil brother Cul, aka The Serpent, was freed from his imprisonment by Sin the daughter of the Red Skull. He waged war on the Earth and Asgard but was defeated by Thor but as foretold millennia ago, Thor died in the process. This all happened in the Marvel event Fear Itself.

But Thor is not in Valhalla. He is in limbo and on his way to be consumed by the eater of Gods, the Demogorge. He cannot remember who he is, and neither can the citizens of Asgard. Thanks to some nifty magic by Karnilla, Queen of the Norns, she replaced Thor's presence and history with a new God of Thunder - Tanarus. Tanarus is actually Ulik the Troll who is under orders by his King Geirrodur to infiltrate Asgard and assassinate the All-Mother and pave way for an invasion by the Troll armies.

Asgard meanwhile is undergoing change. After the Serpent war, Odin returned to Asgard-space in self-imposed exile, leaving Fallen Asgard in its ruined state outside Broxton, Oklahoma. Tony Stark and his Stark Resilient company have begun construction of a new floating city whilst the All-Mother; Freyja, Gaea and Idunn, rule in Odin's absence and begin a new era as the entire Nine Realms attempt to unite into a single new republic of ASGARDIA.

But no one remembers Thor.

No one except Loki.

Fraction continues his run on Thor, with Vol. 2 which finds the world of Thor completely turned upside down after the events of Fear Itself. While Vol. 1 I found to be incredibly engaging and visually stunning, this feels like somewhat of a misstep. The story feels a bit rushed and miss Coipel's art work. While still a fun story, I hope Vol 3. gets back to where the potential of Vol. 1 glimpsed at.

I thought the first Volume of Fraction’s Thor was a solid start to the series. This second volume kicks it into high gear.

When Thor died to stop the Serpent during Fear Itself, a God of Thunder rose in his place: Tanarus. Only Loki realizes that he isn’t right. He doesn’t remember Thor’s name, but he knows Tanarus is not his brother. Though the story never explicitly says how he knows, it makes sense that the Trickster God of Lies, and master of magic, would sense the wrongness. The All Mothers have taken their place as rulers of Asgardia, but Karnilla, Queen of the Norns, plots to bring them down. As Loki fights to remember his brother with the help of the Silver Surfer, Thor must fight to survive the demogorge.

The various threads of this story all come together in a very satisfying conclusion. There is the usual action and humor, and a climactic final battle, but the story draws a reader in with a strong tale of true heroism. Overall, an excellent read and highly recommended!
