    Well if you won't criticise him, I will. JMS - its an interesting read, but as an action comic (and Thor's an action hero - incase you didn't know) its totally and utterly boring - or at least it has been for 13 of the 14 issues so far; #600 ticked all the right boxes...I'll give you that.

I disagree with the claim that Thor is exclusively an action comic. Under some writers it is, but to just label it as that is limiting it. JMS is taking it in a direction with less action, but still telling a compelling story. Pure action can be just as pointless. Personally, I would rather be reading Thor as it currently is than have a book where Thor just goes from one issue to the next and beat someone up like in the current Hulk title by Loeb.
