Ages of Thunder collects what were once four single issues The first three, Ages of Fire, Reign of Blood, and Man of War, retell Norse mythology with the Marvel version of the gods Mostly, it s a series of short myths that all feature Thor, and end with Thor s banishment to Midgard I have to say, Fraction really nailed the style of a teller of epic tales here One could very easily read these issues over a flagon of mead, pausing to quaff at key moments Granted, I m not as familiar with the Norse pantheon as I am with the Greek, but I really like what was done here.The final issue, the God Sized Special heh doesn t connect at all And you would really need to read at least Straczynski s Thor, Vol 1 to understand why, amongst other things, Loki is now a woman It s a decent enough story, but it really pales in comparison to what went before Besides, theconventional storytelling style makes for a bit of a jarring contrast My guess is that Marvel really wanted to collect Ages of Fire, Reign of Blood, and Man of War, but were leery about putting out a three issue collection I have to say, I m really glad we got those in a trade, so I can t complain about the extra story. This is a good collection of 4 Thor stories by Matt Fraction You can see why they d put him on the main ongoing book after this, it s just a shame his run on the main book was never quite as good as anything here A couple of stories about Thor and his life in Asgard Really good graphics for most parts Enjoyed the stories. Awesome That s it It s A W S O M E Fraction captured the language of the gods Beautiful story telling I don t want to NOT mention the illustrations and their magnificence I changes from story to story, but still compliments the writing. I must admit that I didn t quite enjoy either the story or the characters in this one, so I most likely won t continue on with the series. 2.5 stars A solid well told series of one shots All except the special Seemed so out of place All in all a good book. Longo sem deprecia es e p gina conclusas a parte da Deusa do gelo foi uma demonstra o aparte de todo titulo , contudo a mehor HQ DO ANO.
