Review: Mighty Thor #7 - Surprise, Odin loses an eye 1

The Mighty Thor #7 is about the untold story of Odin and his brother Cul. How Cul becomes the Serpent God of Fear and how Odin loses his eye and the coming of the prophecy of the world tree.

This book is well written and there is so great dialogue between Odin and Cul. Pasqual Ferry’s art is top-notch. The coloring by Frank D’Armata really makes Ferry’s art shine.

The problem with this book and with the Mighty Thor series is continuity or quality control. There is a panel that takes place before the dawn of time in this book and it has Juggernaut, Thing and Absorbing-Man as heralds of the God of Fear. How can this be? Before you blow up your brain trying to figure time travel pause for a second. Is it that hard to create new concept characters for six panels. You already have the designs. One of the other heralds looks like Hulk but he/she is a different color and you can’t tell for sure and the same for the others. Even if you left out the Thing’s rocky look and used his body type.

I wouldn’t find this an issue if it was the first time, but I made sure to reread the Mighty Thor series before issue seven and found several continuity problems. Thor would have a beard and then he won’t. Thor would have armor on, then it would be off. I know that sometimes artists draw pages out-of-order but Fraction might need to communicate better with his artists and make sure the details are straight. The problem when a book is for teens plus and that adults catch these things and expect more when your spending your own money.
