We have waited 8 issues and the helmet has finally been lifted revealing who Thor is. I will not say her name here if you do want to know then hit the Read more section at the end.
At times the quest for Thor's true identity has felt like some kind of Asgardian detective show with Odinson going crazy with not knowing who has usurped his position. During this time we have hypothesised and been knocked down and so the pattern goes for this issue as Aaron waits to the last section to give us that which we all desire.
When it comes the reveal is heightened by a rather beautiful exchange between Odinson and Thor where he asks for her name although he believes he already knows it. The moment of vulnerability in the former God of Thunder feels sincere and you can see how it affects Thor thanks to Russell Dauterman's wonderful art.
This has been a series of amazing set pieces but it is the quiet moments inbetween the storms that have me desperate for more from Thor and her cohorts. This series has only been 8 issues but in the words of Aaron himself this is more of a prelude to Thor and I can not wait for more.
