Thor #6 Review by (September 5, 2012)
Review: The first half of this issue is pure delight with the comic scene of Volstagg at a town meeting gives way to the epic Hogun goes boar hunting which moves to the charmingly poignant meeting of Bill Junior and the Lady Kelda. The epic visuals of the second half, with Thor creating a world-wide storm, are marred a bit by our confusion as to what is going on, but it looks cool nonetheless.

Comments: First appearance of the Lady Kelda, who will join Bill Junior in a major subplot for the next several issues.

Thor #6 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

The townsfolk of Broxton are having a little trouble getting used to their new neighbors in Asgard: the discovery at the town meeting that the Aesir have been flinging their toilet waste over the walls and Hogun walking to Texas to hunt boars, for example. Bill Junior, the diner owner, tells of a late night walk when he encountered the lovely Lady Kelda of Asgard, and was instantly smitten. He realizes though that nothing can come of a romance: "A bird can love a fish, but where would they build a house together?" Don Blake replies "On the edge of the river." Meanwhile, Don is debating with Thor over whether to restore Odin to life, the chief concern being whether the All-Father represents wisdom and guidance or stagnation….

Out in a field, Don transforms into Thor and flies up into the stratosphere creating a world-wide storm which restores all of the lost Aesir to Earth in their own bodies. Thor, his power spent, plummets to Earth and crashes in the desert.
