This is the compilation of , including the annual, all one-shots and specials, current and complete. Thor Volume 3 started with released July 5, 2007 with cover date September 2007 and the latest release is released December 23, 2009. It is marked first of all by the run of writer J. Michael Straczynski who, together with artists Olivier Coipel and Marko Durdjevic, essentially took a moribund Marvel title, rebooted it and gave it a power boost, to make it one of, if not the strongest and best, of all current Marvel titles. As a whole Volume 3 has received consistently rave reviews from critics and fans alike, including record sales. A case in point is that IGN's highbrow but uneven reviewers started to regularly cover the title and not only that, began to consistently bestow Thor with its Editor's Choice Awards, giving it ratings ranging from "Great" to "Incredible"; so much so that Thor has been nominated for the coveted Eisner Award. Another thing worhty of note is that Volume 3 is where Thor's 600th issue milestone occurred. After the first 12 issues, for the 600th issue the numbering reverted back to that of the original from Volume 1; hence, issues 600, 601 and so on. Another thing is that although there may be individual story arcs, these are not discrete and the events segue into the succeeding ones as if there is just one continuous story arc. However, as is customary with my compilations of this sort, I have tried my best to sort them according to story arc, and are presenting the issues here as they were released and preferably in their ordinal reading sequence. The one-shots, of which there have been five, are also compiled in a two-part RAR archive together with a "must-have." As per the Marvel database, the aka which advance solicitations described as the conclusion to Straczynski's Thor run is classified as a one-shot. Nevetheless, since the events therein are so closely intertwined with those of Thor issue #603 (I have in fact stated it could very well be considered as issue #603.5) I did not include it with the other one-shots but instead presented it as a CBR that follows the archive containing issues #601-603. A note on the one-shots: they are simply outstanding. The three turns by Matt Fraction, and the one each by Alan Davis and Peter Milligan make you wish Marvel would make more of them. J. Michael Straczynski's must-have (literally) is a pocket example of why his run on Thor will go down as one of the most inspired in Marvel's annals. There has been only one annual, released September 16, 2009. There is also only one special published so far for Volume 3, released December 17 2008. released June 4, 2008 is not classified as a one-shot, nor as a special; so I guess it's to be taken for what it is, a "must-have" issue which, by the way, is not unique for there have been several "must-have's" in Marvel over the years. Is it a new issue category? Only Marvel knows. I am including it with the other one-shots in a two-part RAR archive, however. Lastly there is a related three-issue miniseries starring a Thor character, , published with Thor Volume 3, and is naturally included in this compilation. With the exception of and The both of which are themselves high-quality scans, all the comic books in this compilation are very high-quality Minutemen scans. -- WEATHERMAX
