About the Author

Writer Jason Aaron's early collaboration with artist Cameron Stewart on DC/Vertigo's The Other Side was named one of The Washington Post's "Best Comics of 2007." His next project, Scalped, garnered industry-wide praise and led to a guest spot on Wolverine. After signing with Marvel Comics, Aaron completed another run on Wolverine, as well as stints on Black Panther and Ghost Rider, before moving on to launch Wolverine Weapon X and relaunch Wolverine. He brought Frank Castle's tortured tale to a devastating end in the pages of PunisherMAX and, in the wake of his status-quo-shattering miniseries X-Men: Schism, helped usher in a new era for Marvel's mutants in the pages of Wolverine and the X-Men.

Jackson "Butch" Guice began his Marvel career during the 1980s penciling Micronauts, New Mutants and X-Factor. He moved to DC for a fan-favorite run on Flash, subsequently illustrating nearly three years' worth of Action Comics and participating in the "Death of Superman" event. He also co-created Resurrection Man and provided artwork for Birds of Prey. Back at Marvel, he penciled Captain America, Iron Man, Ultimate Origins and more. He has also worked on CrossGen's Ruse, Dark Horse's film tie-ins Terminator: Endgame and Aliens/Predator, First's Badger and Nexus, and Valiant's Eternal Warrior.

Must buy for comic fans.

Thor FEELS like a god and Gorr is a villain that you simply can't see Iron man or Hawkeye being able to defeat.
Tyler Johnson
The story flows very smoothly.

Following on from Thor: God of Thunder, Vol. 1: The God Butcher, Jason Aaron, Esad Ribic and the rest of the creative team continue the tale of the God Butcher as he faces three Thor's, brought together through time to stop Gorr from unleashing his ultimate weapon of doom, the Godbomb, crafted for 900 years with one intent; destroy all Gods through all time.

This five-part story has the same epic-ness as Aaron's first volume. This time, the younger Thor is enslaved on Gorr's black world, where Gods from across the cosmos have been mining broken moons for Gorr's weapon, which is fuelled by the blood of deities. Thor finds his future self's granddaughters; Atli, Ellisiv and Frigg Wodendottir, the Goddesses of Thunder, and together they formulate an attack on the Godbomd.

Meanwhile, Thor the Avenger and ancient King Thor of Asgard sail through space to join forces with their younger self and face Gorr in one last battle. At each turn though, Gorr is able to thwart the attacks and it seems that he may just be able to carry out his deadly plan and wipe out all Gods from the universe once and for all.

With stunning artwork (including the covers) once more from Esad Ribic, this new era of Thor under the Marvel NOW! revolution just gets better and better. Visually breathtaking, with great scenes, great action and great dialogue, especially between the three Thor's, this story simply must be already among the great classic Thor stories Marvel has ever produced. When you have quality lines such as "Still a few billion light years, but we've got a good solar wind at our backs and ale a plenty." "We've no more ale." "Hela's pale bosom, boy!

It has become evident to me over the past year that Jason Aaron is one of the best writers in the history of Marvel's Thor. Seriously, he belongs in the upper echelons of great Thor writers, alongside Stan Lee, J. Mike Straczynski, and even the great Walter Simonson. I say that because, in the entire 11 issues revolved around Gorr, the God Butcher, there isn't a single page that isn't riveting and wondrous to take in. The first half of this tale was fantastic, and I'm happy to say that Aaron and Ribic definitely delivered the goods in volume 2, Godbomb.

Anyone looking at Godbomb is undoubtedly familiar with the premise. The first volume featured a new villain in the Thor pathos named Gorr, a chilling, frightening foe with an unequaled hatred for all gods in the universe. Practically a god unto himself (but don't ever tell him that), Gorr spent thousands of years butchering countless pantheons across the universe, until Thor stood against and supposedly defeated him. Unfortunately, he accidentally gave him a newfound focus and grander sense of purpose instead. The story featured Thor at three different points in his life, all equally likable and with the same core personality but with enough subtle differences to make each version a unique character. Time travel is involved and the storytelling is actually sharper because of this and not in spite of it.

Format: Hardcover
Collects issues 6-11.

Well, the epic of Gorr the God Butcher comes to an end in this very engaging tale. This volume starts of by going back and using issue 6 to tell of Gorr's tale of anger and why he would have such a vendetta against gods. It also shows how he gains his shadow armor. The tale proceeds with Gorr building his godbomb with gods he has enslaved throughout time. The Thor's of three different eras: young viking Thor, modern avenger Thor, and old king Thor, unite together to take on a challenge most daunting.

Tip of the hat to Jason Aaron for making me a Thor fan through these first two T.G.O.T. volumes. He no doubt has crafted a Thor classic to add to the mythos of a very unique character. This second volume could have faltered or not have delivered a powerful conclusion but Aaron succeeds and will have me reading his run as long as he simply stays on this book. Adding a new villain like Gorr the god butcher is no easy task but to give him a relatable almost sympathetic origin, and make him a truly dire threat with a freshly interesting plan for his goals just enriches the story so much.

To focus on three Thor's from three different time periods and then have them come together to fight the good fight could have been annoying and ultimate prove unnecessary but not here. Each Thor not only serves a purpose but has his own distinct voice and traits through their centuries apart of experiences.

Aaron choices to use a omnipotent narrator for issues 7 on. This aesthetic choice works as it feels like someone is telling the legend of this story to a group of children around a campfire of how three Thor's saved all the gods (still remaining) of the universe from such a cataclysmic event.
