Jason Aaron’s epic Thor run finally ended with War of the Realms… but things are Marvel don’t die quickly and suddenly (unless they’re a new comic launched as an “ongoing” and suddenly stealth-canceled without warning in the solicits). Thus, Aaron’s run needed a 4-issue mini-series to truly wrap things up, and the final issue of that, King Thor #4, is in stores next week. We’ve got a preview below.
Basically, Gorr is killing the universe, and Thor can’t stop him. Of course, this takes place in a future that will be rewritten by another writer in the future, so it doesn’t really matter, but we’ll just go with it for now.
This preview is all over the place though. First, we see Thor ending the world.
But will this come to pass?
You could always read spoilers in the library, where they’ve got a bunch of outtakes that didn’t make it into Aaron’s run proper.
Like Thor the God Cop.
Or Thor the Living Planet?
There’s always room for a commercial for Aaron’s other book.
And some waxing philosophical besides.
King Thor #4 hits stores on Wednesday.

THE FINAL CHAPTER OF THE YEARS-SPANNING, AWARD-WINNING SAGA!
The sun has gone black. Midgard isn’t far behind. The entire Multiverse is dying – and with it, the last of the gods. A millennium ago, the God of Thunder heard a whisper: “Gorr was right.” Now Gorr the God of God-Butchers ascends to his final murder: the All-Father of all existence. Plus, a who’s who of Jason’s past THOR collaborators and a few surprise guests help close out the story in thunderous style!
