    I love Fraction! You just don't know what to expect. He definitely not even close to being the best Thor writer but it's been fun so far.
    He's come up with new ideas on Thor that make me want to see where he's going with it. Yes, he needs to learn from Simonson how to end a story.
    As far as Thor being brutish, read Norse mythology, he is! Although I enjoyed the "Shakespeare" speaking Thor, he is supposed to be the deity of the common man not poets.
    I have enjoyed seeing Thor "beat" Galactus again and fight the Surfer (someone in his own league). I have been so thrilled to see Karnilla again and Ulik. And who can't say they didn't shout "finally" when Thor knocked out NUL/Hulk. I didn't think it was a good idea to brink back Loki but you have to admit Journey Into Mystery is a great comic that is actually better that Mighty Thor and many other comics out there. Without Fraction bringing him back it wouldn't be possible to have such a great comic. Sure there's plenty of continuity and logic problems but this is fiction. And I also enjoy reading this site now because people are quick to point out negatives faster than they are on positives which means I get spoilers (which I love) before an issue comes out.
    As far as you dropping Thor I say good. You should buy only what you like. I bought very few post Simonson/pre Jurgens Thor and the latter part of Jurgen's run. You and many Thor fans not buying will force Fraction to improve or for Marvel to cancel the title. But since Thor is such a great character his comic will always be brought back if it's ever cancelled. I think if Fraction has Odin fight Galactus again we'll all get our money's worth.

To a point he was. Thor was always the god that was known as the friend of man. And many of his stories he is not so much a brute but a warrior of that time period.

Look Raist bunnies...
