After 2 years of bringing a whole new audience to Thor, writer J. Michael Straczynski left the title due to the impending "Siege" event coming around the corner at the time. To begin with, JMS got to do 6 issues to his own accord in 2007 to restart Thor, so long as he had complete creative control over the time frame. He ended up doubling that, due to his the success of the newly done Thor title. So around the time "Siege" came knocking around, which meant JMS would lose his control of the Thor storyline because Thor was to star in the "Siege" story by Brian Michael Bendis, JMS wanted to bow out. No animosity, no creative differences...just lose of Thor's storyline. After this, Marvel scrambled about to find a replacement ASAP to fill the void. And who would have it, they found writer Kieron Gillen, and they found a surprisingly good Thor writer.

THOR ULTIMATE COLLECTION collects all of Gillen's run on Thor, including:
Thor: Latverian Prometheus (except Sif #1)
Thor: Siege
Thor: Siege Aftermath

--Considering each of the links above have a far more detailed review of each story, I won't write out a review detailing each story as much, and I suggest you read each one for better understanding.

Kieron Gillen first hooked me with Journey into Mystery, Vol. 1: Fear Itself. I was a newbie to comics and that was suggested as a good point to begin. I enjoyed that series so much that I decided to jump back in the timeline (but not too far). Since I wasn't too keen on Civil War, I decided to start with Thor, Vol. 1, which had so many positive reviews, and work toward Siege. Gillen's Thor Ultimate Collection follows on Straczynski's storyline and continues into the aftermath of Siege.

One challenge of this collection is that it spans around the Marvel event Siege - meaning it includes material that happens before and after that pivotal story. But, the editors did a fantastic job organizing the structure. About two-thirds of the way through, there is a separation page of panels that simply say "The Monster's Rampage. The Traitor Redeemed. The Traitor's Doom. The telling Strike. The Final Strike. And the Villain Apprehended." Siege in a nutshell! This was very effective. Those who wish could put the book down, go to Siege and return. However, it isn't absolutely necessary. I was already familiar with the basic plot of Siege and was able to continue without any confusion. A testament to the skills of the author and artists is presenting the stories.

And these stories are excellent. I won't deny that Loki is my favorite villain and he figures prominently in this collection.

MINI-REVIEW: Asgard falls from the sky and very bad things wish to take the Norse Gods down. Somehow Loki continues to fool them all. Don't chase fat, angry Norse Gods. Disir are not nice beings. Hot goddesses will date mortal men with baseball caps.

The writer had a lot to tie up after Straczynski left so much unresolved and did an almost great to superlative job.

I just got my ordered Thor Ultimate Collection which I ordered about a couple of weeks ago a nd it was delivered earlier than the target date which was incredible. Since I have not yet started reading it, I just took a glance and saw that the graphics were so great. I'm sure that the story will be fantastic.
