CBR Review: The Mighty Thor #10

I recently reviewed The Mighty Thor #10 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "In the wake of Fear Itself, Asgard has become Asgardia, Tanarus has replaced Thor as God of Thunder both in actuality and the memory of everyone save Loki, and Thor finds himself about to be eaten by the god-eater Demogorge. Each of these stories could be dragged out and advanced in small increments; instead, Matt Fraction speeds ahead, establishing the true identity of Tanarus right away, transforming the political landscape of Asgardia, and returning Thor to his prime. It’s a story where what’s coming is a little obvious and that feeds into the pacing. There’s pleasure in watching a fake Thunder god stomp around alienating the Asgardians while Thor slowly regains his memory and his power. The way that Fraction is building this story, only three parts in, is one where the inevitable confrontation is something that readers will relish."
