Thor #1 (Published by Marvel Comics; Review by Forrest C. Helvie; 'Rama Rating: 9 out of 10):

Fans of R.E. Howard's Conan will no doubt hear echoes of the Cimmerian within the opening pages of writer Donny Cates' prose in Thor #1 as he delves deep into the great melancholies of another mythic warrior who became king in this first issue. Artist Nic Klein delivers a one-two combination between cinematic page composition and beautifully rendered art, and the use of layered wide-panel shots proves especially effective in conveying the epic scope of the stage upon which this story unfolds. Likewise, cosmic-driven stories need to be handled carefully as far as the coloring is concerned to avoid looking like a 1980s nightmare, and veteran colorist Matt Wilson delivers a lifelike and yet otherworldly display over Klein's line art that will keep readers glued to the page. The story as a whole will be one that's familiar as Cates explores the theme of "heavy is the head that wears the crown," and yet, he manages to end this first issue with an altogether unexpected twist. Plan on a wild ride with this new series as Galactus enters the fray for what appears to be a final ride to Armageddon.

Ehehehe. :asd:
Prima volta che leggo questo Cates (credo) e...lol, un po' sborone, eh? :dsi:
Mazza quanto era tamarro questo numero, questo Thor!
Però mi è piaciuto molto, un primo numero decisamente esplosivo, credo mi sia piaciuto tutto, forse a parte giusto giusto il plot point finale, quello di rendere Thor un

Comunque non so se continuare a leggere mese per mese o aspettare come ho fatto con Aaron... :mmm:

Potrebbe valer la pena recuperare il Thanos e il Silver Surfer Nero di Cates prima di leggere questa?

Man of Steel

Non ho letto quelle storie, ma ero curioso di scoprire di più su Black Surfer, quindi magari conviene recuperare quella storia, mentre Thanos...bho, penso di non sia necessario? :unsure:

A quanto ho capito non dovrebbero essere necessarie, sono collegate alla sua run dei Guardiani e non dovrebbero essere riprese.
Se poi ti va di recuperarle ne vale la pena perché sono due ottime storie ...

Arkin Torsen

Cates tende a unire parecchio le proprie storie, quindi magari torneranno utili.
Surfer devo ancora leggerlo, Thanos merita comunque la lettura.

Inizio scoppiettante per una run che promette bene. Spero solo non sia troppo lunga come quella di Aaron, che poi aveva finito per stancarmi.
Ho da leggere Thanos e Cosmic Ghost Rider, poi recupererò anche SIlver Surfer perché mi sa che questo autore mi piacerà parecchio.
Il costume però... Mh, non mi convince.

Thor #2
Written by Donny Cates
Art by Nic Klein and Matt Wilson
Lettering by Joe Sabino
Published by Marvel Comics
Review by David Pepose
'Rama Rating: 9 out of 10

They say the measure of a man's character is how he acts when the odds are down and his back is against the wall. We saw the horrors Norrin Radd was forced to commit as the Herald of Galactus - but what makes Thor #2 so satisfying is how writer Donny Cates and artist Nic Klein show that the Worldeater is no longer working with some introverted scientist, but a bonafide king and a god. And in Thor #2, watching the cosmically empowered Thor use his not inconsiderable strength and resources to blunt the sting of Galactus's hunger feels like an exercise in convictions that makes this sophomore effort truly pop.

Starting off with a cheeky introduction featuring the fall of a particularly Distinguished Cosmos, Cates comes out of the gate swinging - the stakes are high, and even some of the most potent icons of comic book history can't fight off the Black Winter. But that's just set dressing ahead of the real conflict of this second issue - namely, that Galactus is finding Thor to be a bit more willful of a herald than he's ever dealt with before. And while Thor has been harboring some secrets of his own - as Cates winningly calls it, "his mutinous mallet" getting heavier by the day - it's certainly not enough to stop him from kicking ass, taking names, and saving the day.

It's a great dynamic that not only illustrates Thor's expanded status quo as the new king of Asgard, but reminds us that the God of Thunder's heroism is directly tied to his stubbornness - whereas someone like the Silver Surfer might pontificate on the inevitability of the Worldeater, Thor is fully prepared to send a Power Cosmic hammer through Galactus's kneecap in order to save a planet full of aliens who (quite rightly) fear the both of them. Cates' solution to the problem feels sweeping and epic, but what I admire most about this story is that he's pushing back against the wobbly philosophies that have spared - and even justified - Galactus's genocidal reason for being. And isn't that what superheroes are supposed to do - unflinchingly stand between innocents and death?

Artist Nic Klein is also killing it on this book, particularly with the way he's portrayed Galactus as this gigantic, half-rotting behemoth with what looks like a jet engine on his back. While I'm still not quite as convinced by Klein's new design on Thor himself - the long hair and headband combined with the giant "P"-looking sigil isn't for me - it's hard to argue with how Klein portrays the Thunder God as a surly titan capable of heaps of destruction. Watching the way Mjolnir explodes through Galactus is truly eye-popping, and watching an armada open fire on the Worldeater towards the end of the book feels like some Hollywood pyrotechnics.

His jaunt into psychedelia with Silver Surfer: Black notwithstanding, I truly feel like Thor might be Donny Cates' best cosmic work since his breakout success on Thanos. Not only is he able to channel a real sense of lyricism with his narration that feels in keeping with Asgardian fantasy, but Cates is able to ground this turn into sci-fi by showing us exactly what kind of hero Thor is, regardless of change of status quo. Nic Klein, meanwhile, scores a home run with his artwork, making this storyline feel every bit as larger-than-life as you might hope. If this is the kind of storytelling we might come to expect from this creative team, Mjolnir couldn't be in worthier hands.

Heh, anche qua vediamo i pg DC, ma questa volta mi è piaciuto, poi non so come la gente prenderà l'opening del numero, ma visto quello capita in Thor...i dig it.
Ora manca solo Hulk e siamo a posto. :asd:
A parte questo, poca roba, il finale era interessante tho.

Ma perché ci sono i membri della JL in apertura?
@Mos perché dici "anche qua"?

Comunque numero carino, molto ben disegnato, per ora non so questo status quo per Thor mi piace ma la serie si lascia leggere facilmente.

Man of Steel

Ehhh diciamo che Doomsday Clock ha cominciato a dare i suoi frutti. :asd:

In questo caso, Cates ha voluto fare l'occhiolino ai DC fans oppure ha voluto lanciare una frecciatina, dipende da come una la vede, io spero che non abbia niente contro la DC, spero non sia un altro Spencer, perchè se così fosse... -_-

Ho detto "anche qua" perchè le storie DC, come DClock, o film come Joker, hanno catturato l'attenzione di Kelly e ha voluto dire la sua nella storia Deadpool The End. :zuzu:

Mmh io ho pensato che fosse un omaggio alla Lega, ma francamente c'entrava come i cavoli a merenda  :lolle:
Sarebbe stata una bella intro per un arc su JL, quando passa alla Concorrenza questo Cates?  :D
Magari su GL prima o poi :ahsisi:
