Am I alone here!? Lol
Don't get me wrong, there things about and decisions made by Aaron that frustrated me, but I think God Butcher and his final story King Thor are masterpieces as comics go.
And Donny Cates, his first six issues are exploding my brain with thunderous delight. It's like that movie Mandy if it was a Thor comic! For me it hits all the right notes, and while I understand the criticism, none of it really resonates with me. It all feels a bit arbitrary to me. Seems like judging this Thor run according to a kind of preconceived set of limited power levels that I'm less interested in personally.
Anyway, I was just curious does, did anyone else out there enjoy Aaron's stuff that also likes Cates? Anyone else still like Thor comics?

While I respect your opinion sir, and the God Butcher arc was pretty good, Aaron then obliterated all goodwill with what felt like a decades long run where he didnt deconstruct our boy, he assassinated his character. And it surrounded that assassination with just plain bad writing IMHO.
I dont care if Cates isnt the best writer, its clear he likes the character. Which is 1000 times better than what we had.
