Fraction/Ferry Will Officially Wield Mjolnir in September

This September, superstars Matt Fraction, Pasqual Ferry and Matt Hollingsworth take the reins of Thor and begin a thunderous new direction! In Thor #615, following the stunning events of Kieron Gillen’s acclaimed Thor epic, the ruins of Asgard are now a target and a dark, destructive force from another dimension is on its way to ravage all nine realms—including Earth. Only the mighty Thor can stand in their way, but, when the dust clears, nothing will ever be the same for the Marvel Universe!

“I can’t WAIT to unleash our Thor on you unsuspecting humans,” said Fraction. “Things were intimidating enough when Pasqual, Matt, and I had to follow up JMS and Olivier– that we’ve got to take up arms after Kieron and company’s stellar stand makes it all the moreso. All we can promise you is that Thor will overflow with colossal and cosmic action, giant space gods smashing each other in the faces with hammers, and all of the earth trembling in the balance. In short: everything that has made Thor great.”

The perfect jumping-on point for new readers, a bold new era for Thor begins under Fraction, Ferry and Hollingsworth in Thor #615!
