Dan Jurgens: Overall 8 out of 10 (first two-thirds of the run was a 9, final third was a 6).
Brilliant run, lots of action, new characters, fast paced, teased future stories. Fell away a bit with the slower paced Reigning stuff, although that was still pretty interesting.
Mike Oeming: Overall 8 (I think the Ragnarok storyline was a 10, but I think you can only really do a story like that once a decade an make it stick).
Would love to see Mike on Thor again for an extended period. Really shows he knows (and loves) the character.
JMS: Overall 6 for writing (I'd bump that up to an 7 taking the art into account).
Terribly slow, action light, but punctuated by some really touching moments. Ending of the Bor arc was also fantastic.
Kieran Gillen: Overall 7
Definately showed a lot of potential. Decent action, introduced the disir. I would have given him more time.
Rodi: Didn't read it.
Fraction: Overall 2 (bumped up to 3 for Coipel's amazing art)
Where to start. As decompressed as JMS run, but the climax is always a massive let down. Doesn't know how to stage a fight (unlike JMS), doesn't know how to build a villain, doesn't know how to overlap stories. Basically terrible.
