Forgive me if I miss anyone. Who is the best to worst of the Thor scrbes?

We have the following:

Dan Jurgens

Mike Oeming

JMS

Keiron Gillen

Rodi

Matt Fraction

Which one of the guys have brought the most glory to The Thunder God? Please give your reasons for your ranking/

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.
