CBR Review: Thor: For Asgard #4

I recently reviewed Thor: For Asgard #4 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The fourth issue of a six-issue mini-series is often a problematic issue. The premise of the series has already been explained in the previous issues, while the conclusion lies ahead. Sometimes, that means the fourth issue raises the stakes and piles more challenges upon the protagonists, driving the story forward. Robert Rodi tries to do that here with Thor's trip to Valhalla that goes wrong, but it feels like more of the same. So far, Thor: For Asgard has had three issues of 'things aren't right in Asgard and the natural order of things,' and nothing changes. That idea continues, but doesn't become more urgent or compelling. It's a flat line that isn't nearly as effective as it was for the first three issues."
