Customer Reviews

Unfortunately, the entire thing seems rushed.
M. Hughes
The coloring, however, borders at times on bad--truly, Asgard has never looked so drab.
G. Steirer
Featuring great art by John Buscema, the book is a must have for any Thor fan.

Format: Paperback
Thor: Ragnarok collects issues #272-278 of Thor, all originally published in 1978. Production quality is decent with low-gloss paper and a solid spine. No bonus content, however, has been included.

Ragnarok's plot involves a reporter named Harris Hobbs (last seen in Journey into Mystery #123) who, with the help of Loki, sneaks into Asgard with a small television crew; once there he inadvertently helps initiate events fated to bring about the fall of Asgard. Roy Thomas's plot is heavy on intrigue and mythological events, but (for Thomas) surprisingly low on human drama and character development. Characters seem wooden, their actions mechanical. This is no doubt partly because, as the script continuously reminds its readers, everything that occurs has already been fated to happen. And Thomas' rather ridiculous deus ex machina ending only furthers the impression that nothing was ever really at stake in this story. As for the art, John Buscema and Tom Palmer's pencils/inks are okay, but nothing remarkable. The coloring, however, borders at times on bad--truly, Asgard has never looked so drab.

Die-hard Thor fans will, of course, want to pick this up. For everyone else, there are much better Thor books out there.

Format: Paperback
I can't believe this book only has a three star rating. This book is pure, classic unadulterated Thor, with Norse mythology masterfully interwoven through the Marvel lens by Roy Thomas, & illustrated by the legendary John Buscema. This team was responsible for a long, epic run on Conan the Barbarian, so is there any doubt they could create an awesome Thor story, filled with warriors, gods, monsters, epic battle & the end of all things? I say thee nay! Though runs like this one are overshadowed by the awe-inspiring, visionary work of Walt Simonson, who also infused Thor with more Norse influences than ever before, the run contained here is still an awesome effort taking place before that aforementioned visionary's run, and for me, a Thor fan for as long as I've been cognizant, is a definitive Thor story, and I hope my review rectifies the unworthy three stars. The book opens with "The Day the Thunder Failed", a fairly faithful adaptation of one of my favorite Norse myths, where Thor & Loki face the seemingly impossible trials of the giant Utgard-Loki. Afterwards we are taken into the present-day & main storyline itself, as Thor returns to Asgard as the events of Ragnarok, doomsday for Asgard & all the Nine Worlds, begins to unfold, and what follows in the ensuing issues is a fairly faithful adaptation of the Nordic legend of Ragnarok, with twists in the mighty Marvel manner- for example, a news crew, including reporter Harris Hobbs & his impetuous cameraman "Red" Norvell, have followed Thor to the home of the gods, but at the worst possible time, as it seems this group of mortals will get not only a big story, but perhaps the last story ever as they are trapped in Asgard as doomsday looms over them, as well as the gods.Read more ›

This arc sets the stage for the epic Eternals saga, all the way to #300. Featuring great art by John Buscema, the book is a must have for any Thor fan.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The story could have used maybe a two issue longer arch. it just felt to hurried, i didn't like the idea of a reporter talking Thor in to letting him and his camera man come to Asgard (He was a bit pushy, I can't see Thor putting up with sh/t) Anyway I didn't like the art as well, John Buscema with Tom Palmer usually clash well, but here, it just OK. The cover is different from what you see on Amazon. You can buy a better collection than this.
