Looks like I’m in ‘art disagree mode’ today! I thought the art on Iron Man was great. I’ve only just start reading a few of the current Marvel books again after some time away. Iron Man surprised me as I’ve not been a fan since Fraction’s run. The other I like is Dr Strange which could be Marvel’s best book at the moment (to be fair though I’m not qualified to judge that as I’ve only picked up a handful of titles recently. If you’re after a magic based book it puts The Magic Order in the shade).
Anyway, I’ll follow Mike Del Mundo on any book he does so when they announced he’d be on Thor I decided to read the whole Aaron run before starting the new series (I’d only read God Butcher previously and didn’t warm to it). Over the last couple of months I read 82 books in total. I think that’s the complete Aaron output. Someone tell if I missed anything.
Thor - God of Thunder 1-25
Original Sin: Thor & Loki - Tenth Realm 1-5
Thor Annual 1
The Mighty Thor 1-23
The Unworthy Thor 1-5
The Mighty Thor 700-706
The Mighty Thor/The Unworthy Thor - Generations
At the start of the year I decided to rank every comic book story I read in an attempt to compile my definitive list of ‘best to worst’. As of today I have 937 stories on the list. Here’s how Aaron’s Thor stories ranked. Everything bar 1 ranked as good to okay (numbers on the left are the stories’ position on the overall ranking list. Purple means the story fell into the ‘good’ category, blue ‘okay but can live without’ and orange ‘meh’)
In comparison to recent Thor runs I much prefer Fractions, aside from Everything Burns which is turd, and I think I like Straczynski’s run a bit more than Aaron’s.
Having just got through issues 1-4 of the current Thor book I’d say it might jump straight to the top of the Aaron Thor run.
