So Arrives The Necroverse: King Thor #3 Reviewed

by Josh Davison

Mild Spoilers Ahead

It seems that the Gorr, the God of God-Butchers, has finally won against Thor. Gorr has coated a world in the darkness of All-Black the Necrosword, and it is drowning Thor and Loki in its roiling void. Thankfully, the Goddesses of Thunder arrive, and they do so with newfound allies. They found gods still living on Planet Indigarr, one of Gorr’s earliest victims and where Thor brought a new pantheon of wandering gods after his initial defeat of Gorr. The Gods of Indigarr are here to help Thor and his granddaughters slay Gorr, but the God of God-Butchers powers are growing exponentially. Will even an entire pantheon be enough to stop the God-Butcher?

King Thor #3 continues the saga of the final battle of our universe, as King Thor, his granddaughters, and the Gods of Indigarr give what’s left of their power to stop Gorr.

It’s a beautiful tale told in an epic style. The fate of a dying universe is on the line, and the stakes are palpable. It’s a team of gods fighting for what little they have left, making this fight more important to them than any before it.

A small part of the story is dedicated to showing how the Girls of Thunder found the Indigarr gods. This section is rendered by Das Pastoras, and it looks vivid and mythical as the visual stylings of Esad Ribic. Together, these artists and colorist Ive Svorcina make this a visually astonishing story that truly looks like no other comic on the stands.

King Thor #3 is the penultimate chapter to Jason Aaron’s now-legendary Thor saga. The first villain of Aaron’s Thor has returned to end all things so that no god may remain. His vengeance will swallow all that is unless these last remaining gods manage to stop him. It’s a thunderous tale with stunning visuals, and it easily earns itself another recommendation. Give it a read.

King Thor #3 comes to us from writer Jason Aaron, artists Esad Ribic and Das Pastoras, color artists Ive Svorcina and Das Pastoras, letterer VC’s Joe Sabino, and cover artist Esad Ribic.

Final Score: 9/10
