Apologies for being late to the party. I still check these forums every other day (when not busy with work) but must have missed this thread.
Not been reading it but Thor fans on Alvaros seem to legit hate this. Mind you they hate everything that involved Thor's power-level being downplayed so that might be it. Although mostly on there it seems to be the SJW aspect of it which is fair enough as Aaron does seem to lean on that heavily.
If he's still around here, from lurking on there it seems that Upper Krust absolutely despises Aaron's run so I'd be interested to see what he thinks.
You have to be careful what you say around Alvaro's, since its a tad more family friendly.
I'm keeping up with Aaron's 'stuff' via online reviews and reading the comics when I go in the store (approx. every other month give or take). I haven't bought a Marvel title since Aaron's Thor #25 (the issue before Jane-Thor takes over).
I actually think Aaron is a good writer, he's got some great ideas and under different circumstances I'd probably be enjoying his run. I actually think Jane Thor would have been a good idea (if done differently) - so I am not against shaking things up as regards the main character or storyline.
However, there are three flaws to his Marvel comics all of which are problems endemic throughout Marvel (as far as I can tell and I could be wrong on this but I doubt I am).1. Decompression
: I've basically had enough of it. I'm not going to tolerate 5-10 issue stories any longer. Aaron had 25 issues on Thor (which I bought) and he told about 4 stories during that time. These writers simply don't write for the comic format any longer and it shows massively. I don't mind the occasional 5-6 issue mega-arc closing story (like the Surtur Saga) or crossover Event (Infinity Gauntlet) but when every story is 5 or 6 issues and they don't bother with slow builds, multiple plots etc. it just kills the pacing stone dead.
Modern Marvel has less pages, less panels, less story, less dialogue and costs more (not to mention us Brits always get fucked on the exchange rate).2. Feminist/SJW Agenda
: I'm not funding it and I won't support it. Marvel have just went WAY over the fucking top with this nonsense and Fem-Thor is the absolute pinnacle of the self-entitled, virtue-signalling bullshit. Plus its simply not enough to build up Fem-Thor to be strong on her own merits (and by her own merits I mean stealing Thor's hammer, power, name and inexplicably his fighting experience) but they also have to emasculate all the male characters at Marvel and put them down at every opportunity. Thor went from heroic, courageous, alpha male, warrior hero to a whiny, disabled, crybaby cuck who dresses like a gay hobo stripper cosplaying as little red riding hood.3. Crappy Action
: Bit of a nitpick here because Aaron's no worse than the rest in this regard...I haven't read a good superhero fight since Hulk vs. Sentry (unless I'm forgetting something?). But they simply don't give a toss for action scenes any more (a splash page will do, fuck em').
I remember Kirkman's Invincible vs. Conquest (where Conquest loses his mechanical arm, Eve loses a leg and his little brother gets fucked up as well) It was awesome. Aaron has Malekith chop off Thor's arm (quite the important moment) and it was just pure shit.
Its all just become too depressing to read and I refuse to support even the Unworthy Thor comic because that would legitimize the direction Aaron has taken things.
