CBR Review: Astonishing Thor #1

I recently reviewed Astonishing Thor #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Meant to be strong continuity-light minis, Marvel’s ‘Astonishing’ line adds another book this week with Astonishing Thor #1, an issue that doesn’t have much of anything ‘astonishing’ about it. Instead there’s a hint of a plot, a hint of some characterization, some of the worst over-the-top faux-lofty Asgardian dialogue published since the late ‘60s, and art that tries to mimic the look of painted fantasy art in every way including painfully static pictures (in a sequential narrative) and excluding using actual paints. No, the only astonishing thing about this comic is that it got made."
