Odinson is reclaiming the mantle of Thor in an all-new renumbered Thor #1 launching on June 13. Long-time series writer Jason Aaron is continuing on with this title, welcoming in his Secret Wars: Weirdworld collaborator Mike Del Mundo.

“On the one hand, I still feel like I’m writing the same Thor story that began six years ago in the pages of Thor: God of Thunder #1. But at the same time, God of Thunder had a very different look and feel and focus than Jane Foster’s story,” Aaron said.

“And even though Thor Odinson is now reclaiming his mantle, this new volume will also be going in a very different direction. Thor has a completely new status-quo. Actually the entire landscape of his corner of the Marvel Universe has been changed in the wake of the ‘Death of the Mighty Thor’ arc in Mighty Thor. But there’s still a War of the Realms raging, and Thor isn’t looking to stand on the sidelines.”

In this new story-arc, Thor is tracking down various Asgardian artifacts that have been scattered across Earth - with long-time X-Men villain Juggernaut also looking to utilize those same artifacts.

“I’m super excited about this new journey!" said Del Mundo. "Working with Jason on Weirdworld was so much fun and badassery and I’m getting that same excitedness and feels with this new Thor series - with added thunder!”

Mike Del Mundo the artist of the upcoming Thor series does not appeal to me at all, I’ve read a few comics where he happened to be doing the artwork and I remember thinking how much I hated that art. On the bright side, I am beyond stoked that Thor will actually star in the War ofthe Realms. I hated the idea that he would sit on the sidelines while Jane fought a war basically between his entire mythos. Will Aaron screw it up? Probably. Is this better than having Jane star in the book? Definitely.
