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.

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!
