Past and future, the Odinson proves positively in Thor, God of Thunder #23 that he is one of the best creations ever to come from the House of Ideas.

In the present, our powerful Asgardian has been halted by a foe that he cannot hammer away; namely, the lawyers of Roxxon. And the most enjoyable part of these proceedings is that Agger, whether businessman or beast, makes such a wonderfully cerebral foil for Thor, something not often seen in this book when Loki is absent.

Meanwhile, also in the present, the SHIELD agent and femme fatale Roz Solomon fights every fiber of her being as she becomes one of the most interesting new characters in the Marvel NOWera. A one-woman-band stand against the mighty Ulik and his trolls immediately launches Roz into the care and concern department and she ceases to be the lady love du jour.

In the far future, I as a reader of this book and this arc am absolutely blown away by King Thor and Old Galactus. The good news is that there is a satisfying conclusion for this story part as well as its present-day counterpart, and oh that Esad Ribic art. His Galactus is awesome indeed, and a fine homage to the King (Kirby, not Thor, lol).

What more can you ask for in one monthly book? Simply cosmic, man!
