Donny Cates is Taking Over Thor

In a few short months, Jason Aaron’s epic run on Thor comics comes to an end. It’s the only Thor series I have read from beginning to end, and I’ve enjoyed the saga immensely! But it’s not the end of Thor, so another writer will take over in the new year: Donny Cates! He will be joined by Nic Klein on art.

I don’t know how I feel about this one yet. First off, I’ve just never cared about Thor as a character, and that’s usually my main reason for whether or not I’ll read a comic. So the character is not bringing me back, and it wasn’t the character that kept me reading Jason Aaron’s run. Second off, Cates has been hit or miss with me. I loved him on Thanos Wins, but his Guardians of the Galaxy was lukewarm for me (Al Ewing is relaunching Guardians next year). I’m enjoying Absolute Carnage, but I wasn’t interested enough to pick up all of his Venom stuff

So I suppose we’ll see when the new Thor #1 arrives in January. You can read more about the comic at Though we don’t have much more than this initial artwork and the threat of something called “The Black Winter”.
