With the anticipated unpleasantness of Axis book out of the way this was the first MUST READ THIS WEEK Marvel books. (It was this one or the All-New Ant-Man #1.) For me, THOR 3 turned out being a consecutively well drawn ish that did not disappoint.

> Nothing but a setup issue for the next issue.
There were a bunch of (seemingly) decent clues and lots of learning curve action. Example: the Giants couldn't breach the vault doors but Lady Thor eventually found the strength. Also: this issue her seeming familiarity with Thor tactics (expressed in THOUGHT BALLOONS, yay!) made it sound like it shouldn't be Roz.

> So there IS a time limit on how long she can be separated from the hammer but it appears to be longer then 60 seconds.
Sadly, they could have been more forthcoming with how much time elapsed.

> So anyway for the rest of this snooze fest we have Malekith vs the CEO of Roxxon who can turn into a minotaur.
Still like getting to know 'this' Minotaur so this had some fair posturing and bloodline hinting IMO.

> Fake THOR smashes the skull and Malekith vows the frost giants will destroy Earth for this.
Sadly, this shown sequence/panel was wanting. And the previous one, with the untossed trajectory of the freed hammer, was also either confusing or weak clue that further suggests a sentience in the Uru.

> However they are all interrupted by the arrival of the REAL THOR, carrying his axe and wearing a cyborg left arm. Of course he ignroes Malekith and orders She-Ra/THOR to release the hammer or face his wrath.
Well, it was bound to happen and the sooner the better. It was... not bad; although, the lack of clear cross-title continuity continues to painfully cause migraines.

Wait for it... Cool cover!
