Thor: God of Thunder
By picking up a Marvel Unlimited subscription earlier this month I've been able to dive into the entire Marvel backlog of comics. Without having to worry about price I've been exploring all kinds of comics. I give a new series an issue or two to grab me and then I either read the entire run or I move on to something else.
Thor: God of Thunder has been one of the best runs I've read.
It requires no previous knowledge about Thor or the greater Marvel Universe. This is a huge plus for people like me who are just starting to get into comics.
The run comes in at about 25 comics, which is also a plus for me. Long enough to tell some big story archs with weight behind them. But not too long to overstay it's welcome.
Thor: God of Thunder actually covers Thor in three different time periods of his life at the same time. They all weave together to tell a cohesive story on a galactic level. There's Thor as a young god before he got his hammer, Thor as we know him (the Avenger), and old Thor who is one of the last gods.
The first arc of the story involves a God Killer. He goes around to all the deities he can find and wipes them out. Thor tries to track him down and end his killing spree.
There's a lot of depth to this series and if you have Marvel Unlimited I highly suggest checking it out. Look for Thor: God of Thunder (2012) in the app and you'll find it.
