Your First Look At Thor: The Mighty Avenger #4!

Thor and the Warriors Three are en route to Asgard when they take a wrong turn and wind up in Oxford . Captain Britain doesn’t take too kindly to the Norse Interlopers and before anyone knows it, Thor and Captain Britain find themselves in an international showdown for the history books! Thor: The Mighty Avenger #4 has it all: Norse Gods, British warriors, and slugfests galore!
 
Fans and critics agree, Thor: The Mighty Avenger is a smash-hit!
 
“…a terrific pairing of writer and cartoonist on a light, whimsical, and accessible new Thor comic…It’s only just begun, but it looks to revel in everything weird and wonderful about the character, and by extension, the Marvel universe.” – Paul Montgomery, iFanboy.com on Thor: The Mighty Avenger #1
 
“So far Thor, The Mighty Avenger earns three bullets. What gives the book its fourth? The character interaction, the development, the verisimilitude in the dialogue which imbues these literally two-dimensional art figures with emotion and depth.” – Ray Tate, ComicsBulletin.com on Thor: The Mighty Avenger #2
 
“Langridge’s story is filled with enough bits of Thor’s Marvel-based mythology to make this title an instant hit for experienced Thor fans, but Langridge keeps it loose enough to make this book instantly approachable to Thor rookies.” – Doug Zawisza, ComicBookResources.com on Thor: The Mighty Avenger #2
