From Marvel's solicit previews, we learn who'll be taking over for JMS for the next six issues.
I enjoy this series with some reservations, but, my God, its covers are generic.
THOR #604 Written by KIERON GILLEN Pencils & Cover by BILLY TAN Gatefold VariantCover by OLIVIER COIPEL
Has Doctor Doom crossed a line…? And what role did Loki play in Doom's sinister plans? What did Loki know…and when…? Now, as Thor heads to Latveria to settle the score, only one thing can happen: Thor sitting Doom down and having a serious chat about their feelings. By which we mean, STATE-OF-THE-ART SLEDGHAMMER SKY-SCRAPING SUIT-SMASHING SUPERHEROICS!
Billy Tan (NEW AVENGERS) draws the action-packed escapades while Kieron Gillen (NEW UNIVERSAL: 1959, DARK REIGN: ARES, Phonogram) starts his six issue run. Hold onto your runestones, True Believers – things get hectic quick!
Gillen has to have some kind of record for rapid ascent at Marvel; he started out earlier this year on a couple of one-shots and a Beta Ray Bill miniseries (that concludes this Wednesday; in retrospect, if they liked his treatment of Bill it would make sense to profer Thor), now he has two ongoing series debuting in November.
