Jason Aaron's 6th Thor #1 Will (Probably) Be His Last

Superstar writer Jason Aaron revealed today that, after a run of 6 straight Thor #1 relaunches, he will probably be calling it quits on relaunching the series, allowing another writer to take over constantly rebooting Thor every 6-24 months as is modern Marvel Comics custom. Aaron took to Twitter to reveal the sad news:

So what do those other Thor's look like? There's Thor: God of Thunder #1, from November 2012:

Thor #1 from October 2014:

And finally, today's Thor #1:

That's a lot of Thor #1s indeed. And many readers have appreciated Aaron's long (by Marvel standards) tenure as writer. For us personally, we've just appreciated that it's kept Aaron away from his favorite Mary Sue, Wolverine… or has it? In any case, it looks like the next time Thor relaunches (which will probably be sometime next year), it will be with a different writer at the helm.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
