Thor Volume 1: Goddess of Thunder, by Jason Aaron

Another graphic novel that I bought as a potential Hugo nominee, in particular given that it's a first volume and had attracted some commentary when it first came out. It didn't really grab me, I'm afraid; I'm not hugely invested in the concept of Thor in the first place, and so am not that bothered if Thor is male or female, especially if all she or he does is go around biffing things.

One thought on “Thor Volume 1: Goddess of Thunder, by Jason Aaron

  1. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen Murder by Death ( which has characters that parody Miss Marple and Poirot but one of the characters goes off on a rant that every Christie reader I know has agreed with at one point or another – “You’ve tricked and fooled your readers for years. You’ve tortured us all with surprise endings that made no sense. You’ve introduced characters in the last five pages that were never in the book before. You’ve withheld clues and information that made it impossible for us to guess who did it.”
