    I actually dropped Thor when he took over. I don't like his art nor his stories. What's the appeal?


Beats me.

I quite liked his Thor stuff, but that may just have been because the book had been in a bit of a slump. There was a run of very so-so stories after #300, and it felt like Simonson was actually doing something interesting with Thor again. I might have felt differently if he'd taken over right after Buscema's run.

I'm more of a fan of his 70's work. His 'Manhunter' was knockout.

Most of his work though, doesn't appeal to me. Hated his thankfully brief run on Avengers. The rest of it doesn't grab me at all. His storytelling is fine, but his art is a little too scratchy and stylised for my liking.
