Marvel’s latest offering, “Roxxon Presents: Thor #1,” is a thunderous entry into the comic book world that is sure to electrify fans and critics alike. Illustrated by the talented Greg Land, whose artwork is nothing short of divine, and penned by the ingenious Al Ewing, this issue marks a pivotal moment in the Marvel Universe, released on April 17th, 2024.

From the get-go, “Roxxon Presents: Thor #1” grabs readers with its bold narrative and vibrant visuals. The story picks up from the pages of “Immortal Thor,” ushering in the Roxxon Age of Comixx. Here, we see Thor in his secret identity as A.I. spokesguru Chad Hammer, emphasizing the importance of Earth—Mama Gaea—to both heroes and businesses. However, the plot thickens when a band of extreme environmental activists takes their mission to save the planet a step too far, prompting Thor to intervene and impart wisdom from both perspectives.

The narrative cleverly weaves in a meta-commentary on corporate capitalism, with Roxxon—a fictional yet notorious oil company within the Marvel lore—acquiring Marvel Comics. The twist? They’re manipulating Thor’s history for their gain, with the Enchantress pulling the strings. It’s a stroke of genius from Al Ewing, who manages to shake up the status quo with a story that’s as humorous as it is smart.

The comic doesn’t shy away from its metafictional elements, presenting Marvel Comics as an entity within its universe, recounting the tales of its heroes. This layer of self-awareness adds depth to the reading experience, making “Roxxon Presents: Thor #1” a standout issue that not only entertains but also provokes thought about the influence of media and corporations on public perception.

Supporting Thor in this issue is an all-star lineup of characters—Minotaur, Executioner, Enchantress, and the Thor-Truck—each adding their unique flair to the story. And let’s not forget the God of Evil lurking in the background, raising the stakes with every turn of the page.

Greg Land’s cover art is a spectacle in itself, capturing the essence of Thor and the grandeur of the story within. His illustrations throughout the comic are equally impressive, bringing each character to life with dynamic energy and meticulous detail.

“Roxxon Presents: Thor #1” is a vital piece of the “Absolute Absolution” mega-event, and it’s clear that Marvel has struck gold with this issue. It’s a comic that’s not afraid to be bold, to challenge conventions, and to entertain with a wink and a nod to its audience.

This comic is a testament to Marvel’s enduring ability to reinvent and reimagine its characters and stories, making “Roxxon Presents: Thor #1” not just a comic book, but a cultural phenomenon. It’s a roaring success that promises to leave its mark on the Marvel Universe for years to come. Marvel fans, brace yourselves—this is a ride you won’t want to miss!
