    1 thought on “The Mighty Thor: The Galactus Seed

    1. What do you get when you combine two of my least favorite comic book sub-genres – Space opera and bowdlerized ancient mythology?A sum that is only slightly better than its parts.Personally, I’d be wetting myself right about now, but then, I’m not a thunder god.Matt Fraction starts his run after the Siege event, which saw Asgard, home of the Norse gods, end up somewhere in the Oklahoma boonies. The World Tree has been rent asunder, Thor and Sif journey to the bottom and find a big glowing s [...]

    2. Post-Fear Itself, Odin sends Thor diving in the World Tree for a powerful MacGuffin – a MacGuffin that will also satiate Galactus’ hunger finally so he’ll no longer devour worlds! But Odin’s not gonna give it up that easily. Time for a cosmic punch-up: Odin/Thor vs. Galactus/Silver Surfer! I’m not a huge Thor fan but Matt Fraction and Oliver Coipel’s The Galactus Seed was a really good outing for the God of Thunder! Like too many Marvel comics, there’s a lotta fighting in this one [...]

    3. I've never been quite as fond of Fraction's work as others seem to be, but given his reputation I'm willing to keep trying. The Mighty Thor is okay; there are some fun moments, and it does feature kid!Loki, who is probably the most interesting character in the comic. That whole refresh of Loki's character remains interesting to me because it plays with all sorts of stuff, bringing back the ambiguity of his character from the original legends rather than any straightforward comicbook villain stuf [...]

    4. I have no idea why everybody generally hates Fraction's Thor. This is the first volume I've read, and it's incredibly good. The story is huge (Asgard versus Galactus! How could anybody hate this idea?!), it reads really well, all the characters feel spot on, and the artwork is beautiful — an absolutely delightful book from every perspective. And, as an added bonus, I believe this is the volume that started Silver Surfer's life on Earth, something that would lead to Dan Slott's excellent Silver [...]

    5. Whose bright idea was it to have the Asgardians face off against Galactus? This sounds like the kind of thing that was dreamed up by editorial because they thought it would sell comics, not because it seemed like a great idea for a story. And (shocker) it isn't. I like Fraction, but this was uninspired, confused, and lackluster.

    6. I had to start this book three times to get far enough in to build reading momentum. I don't know what it is about the start of this book, but it just did *not* grab me - perhaps the fey, airy colours used in the "action" scenes, or maybe it's just that we get dropped into the middle of a set of "earth-shaking crises" that I didn't for a moment believe wouldn't get resolved by the end of the issue. But it finally gets going in chapter 2, and the we're off on a dangerous adventure. Prolly bringin [...]

    7. This feels thin for the most part (the conflict is pretty basic), but Fraction does a decent job with these characters. He's done better with others, but Thor's cast isn't poorly drawn in this outing. Silver Surfer's a hard one to nail, no matter who's writing. That said, Fraction does about as good a job as someone like Starlin did in past eras.The most redeeming part of this volume is how Fraction tackles what would otherwise have been a thorny tale on religion. It doesn't pull punches though [...]

    8. To be honest, the one thing that saved this was about the last part of it, otherwise it would've been a two star rating. I really don’t like Galactus. I find him a very boring, one dimensional villain. Never-the-less, Fraction manages to make the story engaging because Odin is considered one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel Universe – so what happens when these two butt heads? There was plenty of action, particularly as Thor tests his might against the Silver Surfer, and a good bit [...]

    9. I have always been a Marvel Fan. I am a biased reader when it comes to this. I love Marvel the way I love Tor Publishing house, or Stephen King's works. Top of the line. And this one is just amazing. I love it

    10. Matt Fraction writes some great comics. This one is good but not my favourite. I liked to see him leaning hard into the cosmic side of Thor and the appearances by the Silver Surfer and Galactus were good. Some fun with Loki, and Volstagg, this first arc had much more going on than when Asgard first came to Oklahoma.

    11. this was so much better than the previous series, but i’m worried that it’s only going to be hindered by fear itself.

    12. Until I saw that this went with the other Mighty Thor in the Fear sequence, I had no idea that this was the beginning. From what I can remember, these are two completely different arcs with absolutely no connection. Now I have to reread the second volume because I'm even more confused.That being said, I couldn't really say that I enjoyed this Thor volume. I thought Coipel did better with the Thor trilogy; this style seemed too bright and cartoony and lacked a certain gravitas. Part of that is th [...]

    13. You can find the full review over at The Founding Fields:thefoundingfields/2013/05/And finally we come to one of my biggest graphic novel disappointments of recent times. This one gives me proof that Matt Fraction is just not my kind of writer, that the way he writes is just not for me, plain and simple. The book has an interesting enough story, but is let down by the writing, the pacing, and the random confluence of events, not to mention that throughout the book, Loki just comes across as noth [...]

    14. I feel a little bit like a broken record saying this, but as I've said many times recently, I just don't think there's any way anything Matt Fraction writes can be considered "bad." The worst he can pull off is "good, not great," which is where this Thor story falls. The stakes never quite feel as big as they appear (Asgardians vs. Galactus & Silver Surfer should be HUGE), and the character work is kind of middle-of-the-road. The only thing I'm really digging so far in his Thor run is his de [...]

    15. Asgard has fallen to Earth, and to stop a vague prophesy about someone dying, Odin sends Thor and Sif to take The Seed from the center of the broken World Tree. The Seed is so powerful that, across the universe, Galactus senses that it could sate him forever (with a lovely side effect of making him a god), and sends the Silver Surfer to fallen Asgard to retrieve it. Well, wouldn't you know, that The Seed's existence means Galactus will eventually end, and he certainly doesn't want that, and Odin [...]

    16. Apart from the fact that the reader is somewhat thrown into an existing story line, briefly explained in the opening notes, this is quite a good story. That seems to mainly be the fault of the presentation, calling this Volume 1, without any real sub-heading - or perhaps this is a perfectly standard way to title a series in the Marvel comic world.Coming into this story mid way aside, it is a fun read. There are some nice comic moments with Loki and Volstagg, and I rather liked the whole style of [...]

    17. It's no secret that I was not a big fan of Matt Fraction's first Thor arc, The World Eaters. That said, this first volume of the Mighty Thor corrects all the problems that The World Eaters had to turn out a pretty solid storyline that gets back to the heart of Thor's world whilst not forgetting the recently introduced other side to Thor's world, the people of Broxton.The juxtaposition of the Silver Surfer and Galactus with the Asgardians works fantastically, and whilst the Surfer's character arc [...]

    18. Would I have enjoyed The Mighty Thor Vol 1 more if J. Michael Straczynski hadn't done a spectacular job in previous versions of Marvel's blond, good looking, loves-to-hammer-enemy-skulls Thunder God of Asgard. Maybe, maybe not. As I was reading Matt Fraction's take on Thor I couldn't say for certain if I was even remotely satisfied with anything in these pages. Obviously, Fraction is using big ideas well but he's lacking when it comes to smaller moments. The plot I found hard to follow at times, [...]

    19. Matt Fraction tries his hand at Thor here, and at the very least manages to provide us with some new ideas by pitting the forces of Asgard against Galactus and the Silver Surfer. There is little in the way of character development here, but Volstagg and Loki both get some excellent spotlight time, adding some much appreciated personality to the story. The Odin/Glactus showdown was interesting, and the ending when (view spoiler)[Pastor Mike becomes a herald of Galactus (hide spoiler)] make me lau [...]

    20. I loved Thor: The World Eaters, so I was eager to start this new Thro series from Fraction. Since he didn’t want to bog the book down with the baggage of continuity, the story is very much stand alone.I really don’t like Galactus. I find him a very boring, one dimensional villain. Never-the-less, Fraction manages to make the story engaging because Odin is considered one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel Universe – so what happens when these two butt heads? There was plenty of actio [...]

    21. I haven't read many Thor comics, but I think I started with a good one here. A lot of comics struggle to balance the amount of text with the art shown; that's done perfectly here. You can really admire the beautiful art on each page, without a lot of bubbles covering stuff.A good story - Galactus attacking Earth (more so Asgard, which is now on Earth), in search of the Seed. A nice subplot with Loki and a less entertaining one with the fat, loud, and stubborn Volstagg.Great battles in here; Surf [...]

    22. Pros:Lots of interesting and dynamic panelling, making the most of the page/s (there are a bunch of two-page spreads).I know who the Silver Surfer is now! I was previously under the impression that he was a villain, so, uh, sorry, dude. He is actually pretty interesting here.Kid!Loki. Enough said.Cons:Thor's face is drawn in a distractingly weird way. He looks he accidentally bashed himself in it with Mjolnir or something.Cover with movie photos is misleading.Matt Fraction's predilection for wri [...]

    23. Non mi è piaciuto tanto questo fumetto, l’ho trovato tutto sommato noioso, oltre che confusionario, tanto che pensavo proprio avrei chiuso qui con Thor. Solo che poi nel finale invece si è un bel po’ risollevato, e il rapporto tra Thor e Loki mi conquista sempre, perciò credo che proverò a proseguire, magari vedo se riesco a trovare qualcosa in formato digitaleufragio/iltempodileggI didn't like so much this comic. The images are very beautiful, but the character not particularly interest [...]

    24. I'm not sure why Matt Fraction's Thor work gets such a tepid response from readers. I've enjoyed everything he's done with the character including the often maligned "World Eaters" arc. Fraction's work with Thor is always very impressive in scope which is something a good Thor book needs. It also doesn't lack in characterization. This first Mighty Thor volume delivers on both fronts and features amazing visuals by Olivier Coipel: a treat for someone like me who followed the 2007 Thor relaunch fr [...]

    25. Five star artwork, especially Sif (there's a great bit where Loki sneaks in and wakes her - she chooses her sword over her blanket. Loki later thinks to himself, "Especially Sif. I like Sif." You would, buddy, after seeing her naked!)The story jumps around and can be confusing at times. But it will hold up better on a second reading I think. Volstagg steals every scene. The preacher's crisis of faith and then certainty and then enlightenment is a bit rocky - he comes across as quite mean in the [...]

    26. While I didn't love the story, some of Olivier Coipel's artwork was excellent (particularly of the Silver Surfer). One of the challenges of writing superhero comics is the need to resist the temptation to constantly raise the stakes in telling the stories of these characters. The challenge goes back at least as far as the introduction of god-like character Galactus in 1966. This graphic novel saw Galactus confronting the gods of Asgard in a story that had lots of ominous overtones but no real dr [...]

    27. Thor and Silver Surfer.Five or six years ago, I would probably say I could care less about either character. I would also say I really didn't like Matt Fraction's work. Now, though, I have been enlightened. The Asgardians have been great in Fractions hands, as well as Gillen's work in Journey into Mystery. That is the thing about Superheroes- You might be under the impression that you do not like a character, then they become part of a team you like, written by a writer you like, and you have to [...]

    28. This Thor volume was solid, if not spectacular.The visuals were the best aspect: I loved the physical representation of the Silver Surfer, the World Tree and the creatures defending it, even young Loki and his mischievous expressions. Good stuff.The story of Galactus threatening Asgard was interesting, but had an unsatisfactory resolution. Everybody fights for awhile, and then a confusing truce is made and Galactus--who is supposed to be this super-evil world eater--basically just shrugs his sho [...]

    29. I enjoy Fraction's style, how he doesn't take anything too serious for too long, and how he calls out the maudlin and mopey (I'm looking at you, Silver Surfer). However, my favorite bit about this arc is it's Thor's story. Right? The Mighty Thor, working with his allfather and warriors to defeat Galactus. Except who really saves the day/world/Asgard/everything? Kid Loki. Genius reincarnated ten-year-old Loki runs around in shadows, collecting items and going on his own quest to save his brother. [...]

    30. The only genuinely good portion of Matt Fraction's Thor run, and that's due almost entirely to Olivier Coipel's glorious artistic realization of the fights. It's a very, very simple concept, which I suppose is why it works--Fraction couldn't screw it up too badly if he tried. The Norse gods (Thor and Odin, primarily) vs. the space gods (the Silver Surfer and Galactus) over some unimportant macguffin; look, the point is that they fight, and Coipel makes it look really, really good.
