Art fell to Billy Tan, who while not as amazing as Coipel, provides some great shots in this book, such as Thor nuking Doom's castle with lightning, as well as some gruesome scenery regarding Doom's purpose in involving himself with Asgard. The fight between Thor and Doom is every bit as good as the fight with the Destroyer in Volume 1 or Bor in Volume 2. His proportions get a little off at times (Thor's shoulders are enormous in one panel for example), but Tan's art is overal excellent.
Also collected are a 1-shot about Sif, which is a neat little story where she helps old Thor ally Beta Ray Bill; a little story by Stan Lee in celebration of Thor's 600 issue milestone; and a little comic-strip celebration by Chris Giarrusso. Though obviously included to pad out this book's otherwise short length, they are cool little extras nonetheless, especially since Sif didn't get to do much after Thor saved her.
Fans of the run will be quite happy with this conclusion. All in all, `The Return of Thor' has been a great arc and I'm glad to have it in my small, but beloved collection.
The only thing I didn't like was the "Pull the rug from under your feet" trick at the end. The long awaited battle between Doom and Thor is fun, but it's also very evasive. While we can't just kill off characters, it still shouldn't allow us to let villains escape by any means necessary. Other than this factor, Latverian Prometheus is very solid.
It's short, but it's worth the money. The couple extra bonus issues at the end are a plus to help lengthen the trade. Sif #1 and Mini Marvels are very fun. I would have rather bought this short trade that fills the space with extra side stories, than to wait very much longer for more core Thor issues.
Gillen, you are doing a fine job. Your material is comparable to Straczynski and this story was very entertaining. Keep up with the pageturning adventures and I'll see you in Siege:Thor. This has to be the smoothest transition from author to author I've seen. The artwork of Billy Tan is also nearly identical to Coipel. Now that the "passing of the torch" has been processed, I'm dying to know what happens next.
