Reply Subj: The Dan Jurgens Thor Run, What Did You Guys Think Of It? How Would You Rate It?

    I used to buy this when it was coming out (Back then, comics were cheaper. Boy, I miss those days.), and I thought that the first year or so (Heroes Return.) with John Romita Jr was really good. That Destroyer arc was the best, as I really did not know about the character before then, and that made me really dig him. After that, there was some good stuff, but it started to lose steam. I think that Jurgens should have left a lot earlier (Say, after the death of Odin.). Overall, I think that Jurgens was underlooked, and I would classify the Dark Gods storyline as a classic. If just for the first year, I would give him either a B or a B +, overall I would give him a C or a C-.

He did not get to tell the exact story he wanted to in the end, at least not with the resolution that he wanted. The first half of the run was pretty darn good and entertaining. The second half was still fun but had a fair bit of missed potential to it.

It was the one that I started getting back issues for when I started reading Thor though so I am probably biased a bit towards it.

Look Raist bunnies...
