CBR Review: Thor: For Asgard #1

I recently reviewed Thor: For Asgard #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Simone Bianchi was born to draw a Thor comic; when he was announced as the artist on Thor: For Asgard, it seemed like the perfect match of character and artist. His work on Seven Soldiers: Shining Knight showed his ability to take warrior cultures and portray them as strong and violent, while also beautiful and intricate in their armor and weaponry. He takes simple things like swords and adds small touches to give them an alien and majestic feeling. In Thor: For Asgard #1, he uses the base level of the warrior culture and fantasy look of the Asgardians, but adds in otherworldly and rich elements like jewels or Simone Peruzzi’s additions of what looks like a glow coming from some of the gods to indicate that these are not mere mortals, they are the Asgardian gods. They are warriors and gods, and their kingdom is falling to ruins."
