After months of swinging his Uru hammer at trolls, evil dark elves and god killers, Thor has come up against a force that he might not be able to overcome: corporate attorneys.

Things look bad for Broxton and environs as Roxxon brings some of its dirtiest, stinkiest factories to the area. How this pollution is affecting Asgardia has not been addressed, but it has turned Thor's most recent ally, SHIELD agent Roz Solomon, against him ... temporarily, we hope.

I was curious as to what Jason Aaron's "Earth Thor" story would be, and it certainly is a different one. Bringing SHIELD, Roxxon and a little bit of a mess along the way has made this a very different Midgard adventure. We also have a belated tip of the hat to Infinity as well.

Artist Esad Ribic and colorist Ive Svorcina do the usual excellent job of portraying Thor. Each and every panel is a piece of art, a modern wallpaper. How Ribic and Svorcina keep this consistency together is beyond me. I don't think there has been an issue of this magazine that has not been beautiful since the God of Thunder volume began, many artists emulating Ribic's distinct fairytale style.

Once again, Thor is the best Marvel entry this week on the stands. Nuff said!
