However, the listing for Thor by Jason Aaron & Russell Dauterman Vol. 3 looked very similar… as if it had been fed through a translator and back again,

Death comes for the Mighty Thor! But first, she must survive the Asgard/Shi’ar War! Plus, as Malekith’s manipulations threaten all there is, Jane Foster recruits Angela and Sif to her new League of Realms – and leads them on a deadly mission into Dark Elf territory! Then, when the hammer of the Ultimate Thor resurfaces, its new wielder becomes a thundering Thor for dangerous times. But who is this new War Thor? As Malekith’s dark army grows, the Queen of Cinders threatens to engulf the Realms. But worse is still yet to come! When the Mangog returns just as Jane’s cancer takes a turn for the worst, the end approaches – will the Gates of Valhalla open for Jane?

COLLECTING: MIGHTY THOR (2015) 13-23, 700-706, GENERATIONS: THE UNWORTHY THOR & THE MIGHTY THOR 1, MIGHTY THOR: AT THE GATES OF VALHALLA

Well, Marvel Comics has had a bit of a rewrite, telling retailers that Thor By Jason Aaron Vol 4 will have a new page count of 272 rather than the solicited 520, a new price of $34.99 rather than the solicited $39.99, art by Mike Del Mundo & Christian Ward, Tony Moore, Lee Garbet, and a new solicit text of:

Thor Odinson has regained his mantle – but Mjolnir is no more! And with a War of the Realms looming on the horizon, he’ll need some new hammers -” lots of them! But will any amount of weapons be enough against the unstoppable Juggernaut? In the present, Thor joins the Valkyries in the fight to save Hel from the Queen of Cinders! In the far future, King Thor encounters an old friend who’s undergone some startling changes! And in the distant past, the young Odinson still can’t figure out how to prove himself worthy of Mjolnir -but Loki thinks he knows how to keep his brother away from Midgard for good! Plus, Thor is reunited with his sister Angela when Heven attacks! And Roz Solomon, Odin and Freyja gird themselves for war as Jason Aaron’s legendary run continues!

Any more for any more?
