HASH(0x9e38e174) out of 5 stars A Fun Read Jan. 11 2012
By RGTD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Willingham's Warriors Three is a fun, fun read. There is a lot of action, just like you would expect from a Thor book, but what makes this book so great is the very economic character development that Willingham is able to do. Why is Hogun so grim? Why is Volstagg so fat? Wilingham is able to tease answers to these questions without bogging the reader down in flashbacks or heavy-handed exposition. The art is bright and bold. If you like Coipel's run of Thor you will be happy with this. It fits the mythic tone of the story nicely.

I really had a great time with this book. Thor's plotlines have become so tied up in major Marvel events that a quick, self-contained story about the Warriors Three felt like a breath of fresh air. Here's hoping we get some more!

HASH(0x9e2e5d08) out of 5 stars The Wolf is best..... Feb. 21 2014
By Alan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It's curious that Neil Edwards was chosen to draw this comic, and that he filled in on Fantastic Four, as both were the creations of Jack Kirby, who was noted for the weight and solidity of his characters. All too often, Edwards' characters appear to be about to float off the page, and are awkwardly posed (though his artwork here is better than that on FF). But there is one artistic triumph - his depiction of Fenris Wolf, who looks truly mean and scary. One can understand getting Willingham to script it, given his stellar work on Fables. He doesn't take what might be the expected route of setting the entire story in the fantasy realm of Asgard, but integrates the story into the overall Marvel universe, creating a new character who hasn't however, to the best of my knowledge, been used elsewhere. Overall, this is slight, but entertaining enough. It might be an idea to let Willingham have a crack at Thor itself sometime.

HASH(0x9e377348) out of 5 stars Epic Fail Oct. 30 2013
By Culleton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
There may be spoilers ahead...

The Warriors Three: Hogun the Grim, Fandral, and Volstagg the Voluminous. These are warriors of Asgard and friend to Thor, in their own 4-part tale where they have to track down and face the Fenris Wolf who has escaped his ancient shackles and has slaughtered a town in Washington state. They have previous with the wolf from ages ago so they set about their task, leaving Thor and the other Asgardians to race off to Washington to face the beast head-on. Our 3 warriors however, use cunning and detective work based on their previous experience, to hunt him down.

Along the way they skirmish with Ulik the Troll and his hordes, and there's a cameo by Reed Richards who examines a clue that they discover - a piece of fabric that he declares is from an Advanced Idea Mechanics (A.I.M.) uniform and has come from their base in the Nevada desert. The warriors then transport themselves to the A.I.M. base where they discover a new threat in the form of a warrior woman.

We discover that the woman is a former A.I.M. scientist called Helen Gable who was experimented on and genetically modified by being fused with the blood and powers of Fenris to become a human/Asgardian hybrid. We learn that A.I.M launched Project Valdyr, a plan to weaponise the monsters of Niflhel of the Nine Realms, which included Fenris. This led to the merging of scientist volunteers with the Asgardian blood and the creation of the R.I.A.C, or Ragnarok In A Can!

Now Fenris is on the loose and searching for the R.I.A.C, which has the power to destroy the Gods, and so the Warriors Three team up with Gable, now going by her ancient Norse name of Skadihr, to stop his evil plan.

This is an average tale. I'm not familiar with the writer Bill Willingham, but I've since found out that he has mostly worked for DC Comics. His wikipedia page and his official website fails to mention this book in his list of works. Maybe he's embarrassed to include it in his portfolio. I found it lacking in real excitement and I've read it a few times now and it doesn't get any better. Fenris is not the ideal villain to use here. Yes he's the son of Loki, and a shapeshifter, but to me he's not portrayed here as a bad guy that you would want to root for. There's no real depth to his evil nature. His "I want to kill Gods" mantra is not explained and I found myself thinking that there must be a whole array of villains, Asgardian or otherwise, that could have been used in a more fitting manner.

The best parts are the flashback scenes where the Warriors Three are more youthful and their coming-together is retold, and the climax itself is marginally better than the rest of the book, although the sight of Volstagg, Lion of Asgard, carrying the R.I.A.C. (resembling a miniature Death Star) through the desert is quite comical. I like the idea of Helen Gable/Skadihr and the fusion of Asgardian/mortal blood to create a God-like person, and it would be interesting to see her again but as far as I'm aware there has been no further stories containing her. She's not even listed in the Marvel database of characters.

This has proven that the Warriors Three are best suited as minor characters to compliment Thor stories only. As much as I like them, I guess they will forever be consigned to the "supporting cast" roles, unless a different writer can make them work. The artwork by Neil Edwards is ok, but it's not up there with my current crop of favourite artists that are around at the moment. Included in this book are two old stories from the halcyon 1960s era of Marvel, featuring the Hulk and the Warriors Three, which bumps this book up from a 1, to 2 stars.

It was a valiant effort, but I'm afraid you should only buy this if you are an avid fan of all things Asgardian, and even then, you may find it difficult to rave about this book.
