Matt Fraction on Thor!
Matt Fraction has been announced as the new writer for the Thor ongoing series next year. Here's what he had to say about it:
MF: I’m most excited about getting off of Earth. There are nine worlds in the Norse cosmology, sort of, and lately the book has been spending a lot of time here in Midgard sweet Midgard. I want to take these amazing people, these characters that are so known and loved (at least amongst the pages of THOR), and take ‘em up and down the world tree. And beyond! Hell, why stop at just our world tree? I’ve said too much.
This is great new in my opinion. This is exactly the sort of direction this book should be taking, exploring Thor's world just like Fraction did with the Immortal Iron Fist book and his brilliant Thor mini series Ages of Thunder. If you haven't read Ages of Thunder I suggest finding them as they are not only fantastic reads but will be a great indication for Thor fans of where Fraction intends to take this book. Another book added to my list...DAMN YOU MARVEL!
Addicted to comics but also love films and music. The idea for my blog is to be the first stop for comic book fans. I will do my best to update the blog everyday with comic news and previews and links to other great comic book sites. I will also of course post my opinons about these topics and try to post my own comic book reviews every week. I would love to hear from readers of the blog (i.e. you) what you think about my articles and the content. Lastly, I am a big music lover and movie fan so these topics will occasionally be blogged about and I would love suggestions about what to listen to and what films to see and what I should be reading. Cheers
