Thor #1 Review

thorcoverI’m going to give a little experiment a try (for as long as I can). I’m going to try to review a new comic every day this month and then perhaps continue to review some of the comics on a continuing basis (therefore I’ll be mostly spotlighting new series or ongoing series with new directions, as if I am to continue with a review I’d prefer not to pick books already significantly in progress).

I begin with this week’s release of Thor #1 by Jason Aaron, Russell Dauterman and Matthew Wilson, debuting the all-new female Thor.

One of the absolute joys I get in reading so many comic book titles is when I get to see a comic book creator develop. I recall seeing Russell Dauterman’s work on Grace Randolph’s Supurbia and finding it to be strong work. However, as time has gone by his work has gotten better and better. By the time he began drawing Cyclops for Marvel, it seemed clear to me that this was a guy who was destined for a bigger spotlight and now, with the release of the brand-new Thor, he has gotten that spotlight and Jason Aaron seems content to spend much of the first issue of the title showing off the impressive work that Dauterman can do working with colorist Matthew Wilson.

“The novel I would most like to read at this moment,” Ludmilla explains, “should have as its driving force only the desire to narrate, to pile stories upon stories, without trying to impose a philosophy of life on you, simply allowing you to observe its own growth, like a tree, an entangling, as if of branches and leaves …” (Italo Calvino, from If on a winter’s night a traveler)

I had killed a man. I had killed a man to get a woman. I had put myself in her power, so there was one person in the world that could point the finger at me and I would have to die. I had done all that for her, and I never wanted to see her again as long as I lived.

That’s all it takes, one drop of fear, to curdle love into hate. (James M. Cain, from Double Indemnity)
