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.
