Thor: Vikings is very far from being the best Garth Ennis (Preacher, Hellblazer, Punisher) has to offer; it's an insignificantly entertaining action comic at best. Still, it shines with Garth Ennis's bleak and self-aware sense of the absurd, and even if it lacks severely in plot and characters, it's still a fun read, written with some wit and humor, with some wonderfully crafted action sequences. Ennis clearly had lots of fun with Vikings, and he completely let go with the absurd and ridiculously bloody violence and gore that he so loves.

The simplistic story is helped along by fantastic artwork by Glenn Fabry. Fabry is one of the most crafty masters of anatomy in the field (he even wrote a couple of instructive books for drawing muscles and human forms) and his highly detailed and sensitive art compliments the action scenes; it works particularly well in the wide, crowded panels, where Glenn gives as much attention to each and every bloody detail as he does to the overall compositions. The page layouts are fantastically dynamic, and all of that makes Thor: Vikings a quick and fun read that grabs hold of the reader and doesn't let go till the last pages. It's far from being a masterpiece, and it's certainly among Garth Ennis's lesser creations, but it's worth the effort for fans of Ennis's and of Thor's, and for those who enjoy well crafted and highly violent fight sequences.

One of Marvel's better titles in recent years 2005/9/8

I have followed the Thor series off and on since encountering it as a kid back in the late 60's, but I was quite stunned to see this shockingly offbeat, but utterly engrossing, take on the Thor universe from Marvel's "mature" imprint, Max. This series is as graphic in its depiction of violence as I've ever seen from a mainstream publisher and even underground grue legend S. Clay Wilson will feel like he's been outdone in some areas ! But no matter how over-the-top the violence is, it's integral to the storyline, in which a boatload of Undead vikings arrives in NYC to loot, rape, and murder to their heart's content. Thor's initial encounter with Jaeckelson, the viking leader, is memorable in its brutality and leaves the reader feeling like they've been punched in the stomach. The ensuing chapters detail Thor's collaboration with other Marvel universe heroes, and their efforts to defeat the onslaught. They also introduce some memorable new characters that I, for one, would like to see appearing in a sequel (?) at one time or another.

Glenn Fabry's artwork, while sometimes a bit awkward in rendering human forms in action, succeeds quite well in capturing the apocalyptic tone of the story. Whether focusing on up-close action involving hand-to-hand combat, or aerial battles that offer a relatively drastic change in perspective, the immediacy of the struggle between Thor and his adversaries is effectively communicated without being so cluttered or self-consciously "artistic" that the reader is left peering at the page and trying to puzzle out exactly what's happening. In light of how pervasive the cartoony, expressionistic style of comic art is nowadays, Fabry's straightforward, realistic draftsmanship is exactly what's required to give Ennis's plot the graphic intensity it needs.

Forget the overwrought, encrusted, heavy-handed melodrama so typical of much of Marvel's output over the past two decades. Thor: Vikings is an unadorned battle between good and evil and never shies from revealing how violent and cruel such a primeval conflict can be. The intensity of the conflict is relieved every now and then by some black humor, but upon finishing the book there was no avoiding the feeling that I'd just been treated to the Battle Royale of the Marvel universe.

Ultra violent vision of Thor from the great Garth Ennis 2004/4/7

Collecting the five issue mini-series by our favorite mad Irishmen scribe Garth Ennis (Punisher, Preacher); Thor: Vikings finds the classic Marvel hero defending modern day New York City from an immortal clan of blood thirsty vikings. The storyline and presentation is pure Ennis style mayhem: loads of bloody violence combined with an outrageous sense of dark humor; a combination which made his works on The Punisher, Fury, and Preacher so sucessful. The art by Preacher cover artist Glenn Fabry is more than solid artwork, though Darick Robertson (who did the art for Ennis' Fury and the recent Punisher: Born) would have been a better choice to illustrate all the bloody carnage. While Thor: Vikings is a great read to be sure, it doesn't strike the same gold as Ennis' previous works, but it doesn't try to either. All in all, fans of the great Garth Ennis should check this out.

First off, I'm a big Garth Ennis fan. Glen Fabry is also an excellent artist, but...his rendition of Thor isn't quite good. What we have here is some skinny-long hair-hippie that poses as Thor. Did the artist do this on purpose? Did Ennis tell him to draw Thor in this weak-looking stature? I think he did, because it was more humorous than straight drama-action.

The story - well, what can you say from Ennis? His stuff is totally out there and he continues it with Thor. I love the fact that we can go all crazy with Thor as a character and total mayhem! You will not see something like this in the regular Marvel Universe! It was a fun read if you want to see a Thor series that's totally out of character!

Do I recommend that you buy it? If you're a Thor fan, go for it. Just to see something different. Ennis brought something different to the table and it almost work. Not his greatest stuff, but fun to look and laugh about it.

First off this is my first Amazon Review. This book was so awesome I feel it deserves that. I will first post the issue I had with it. First Thor wasn't as tall or muscular as his character should be. He is portrayed to be tall, but not as tall or muscular as the Thunder God is portrayed universally in his comic. He stands as tall as a normal tall Nordic man, and more lean then truly muscular, and some tall Nordic types in the book are even taller then him. Second the implication that a botched rune magic gone empower up a damnation spell and make an individual mightier then the Mightiest God of Asgard strikes me as a bit wrong. And third I would have liked a bit more development explaining how the Knight Magnus accepted a pagan god as a noble and true ally. It makes sense for him to potentially do so, but it feels like they just cut that part. Last and perhaps most important is their is a page of political satire that just feels completely out of place. For one thing it is too over the top to the point of bringing out of the story, after the book did such a good job of bringing me under its spell. Second I prefer to keep politics out of the story. I like it when it is part of a story, after all Captain America has done great stories about that, but this just felt inserted and unnecessary, as if it was pointlessly trying to divide the readers of the book.

I would also mention the superhero response besides Thor to the situation is handled only in one page, but I can accept that as it is meant as a limited series Thor comic. Honestly if this was even an issue or two longer I think it would be nigh unto perfect!

Now back to the good part!

By the Beard of Odin this was magnificent. Be warned it is ultra brutal, but it literally brought a tear to my eye by the last page along with that oh so appropriate shiver you get when something is cool. Seriously if you can handle the violence and implication of sinister undying Vikings sailing to rape and pillage Manhattan and then the Continent entire, then read this! This is Perfect for Halloween!

The feeling from reading the book from the beginning to end, and the satisfaction I got from it afterwards erased any complaints I had about the book, and justifies a 5 star rating instead of a 4 star rating. I sincerely would have wished he designed this as a 10 issue mini series rather then a 5 issue, and Hell even one more issue would have been sooo satisfactory! I could not stop reading it after I started! That is a great sign of a comic. I just had to know how things would turn out after you saw the first appearance of Thor. Let me just say he get his wrists broken and it goes downhill from there. You just have to read to finish the story, and it takes exciting turns when they bring aboard three new characters halfway through the series. Verily this is a worthy read!

And Thor just added a new phrase to my Gordon Parlance! Tis On!
