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 Marvel.com. Though we don’t have much more than this initial artwork and the threat of something called “The Black Winter”.
