Well Thor enthusiasts, I have good news and bad news. The good news is that the wrap up of Siege in Thor #610 was very well done and Kieron Gillen is doing an awesome job keeping up with almost all aspects from issue #1 of J. Michael Straczynski’s run. The bad news is we had an art change and I for one don’t feel like Doug Braithwaite is fully grasping all the characters yet.

This Siege Epilogue did a great job of wrapping up all of the things covered in Siege. but I do wish there was a little more set up for the future of the book. There is some dialogue that foreshadows but it is in the slowest section of the book. My favorite parts are with Kelda and Valkyrie going to see Bill in his afterlife, Volstagg trying to make up for his mistake, and Thor being welcomed back just as Ragnarok needs to be defeated.

My main issue with the art stems from two things. The first is the fact that it is easily seen that the colors are not solid due to there being three colorists. The second is Braithwaite’s faces. He seems to be trying to hard to capture every shadow on the face and the more you see of the faces, the more evident this becomes. This being said, some of the best panels are the ones where everyone has a helmet on or anyone who is somewhat far away so you can’t see the detail in their faces.

I am seriously hoping that Braithwaite just needs to get more comfortable or maybe he is getting bogged down by colors and inks. The biggest misstep made by Braithwaite and anyone who let it slide is making Kelda to be so much more revealing in this issue. She is supposed to be a classic beauty, not a slut with barely any clothes. All that being said the issue was pretty darn good story wise, but really disappointing art-wise.

I give Thor #610 a 3 out of 5.
