He did a good enough job of explaining things about past events that I wasn't too lost, but it definitely has made me curious about reading prior Thor stuff to get more of the story (things like Ragnarok and what-have-you). I'm considering checking out the Walter Simonson Thor run, which I've heard very good things about. Where did the story go from there in terms of like, which writer(s) continued the story or what were the arcs titled? The end of volume 3 leaves you kinda hanging since it seems like it's about to get pretty amazing. Made me wish he had continued it on.
Glad you liked it. I unfortunately (or fortunately) stopped reading after JMS's run. I generally follow writers and I don't recall offhand who the author was. It wasn't anyone I usually follow so I stopped. However for all I know it might have gotten better or continued it. Good news is they're not that far along since that run so if you really wanted to continue, I don't think it's more than 5 - 6 issues (maybe a little more). I unfortunately also don't know what happened previously other than Ragnarok.
Anyway the good news is, you don't hate good writers . It at least gives me some idea what you may or may not like. If you can find it, you should check out JMS's Superman: Earth One trade (sadly on in hardcover). It came out a few weeks ago and got some critical acclaim (and sold out in most places). Good news is you don't need any prior knowledge since it's basically a standalone trade that retells the origin and whatnot. Well standalone until they just realized how good it was and are now making a 2nd to continue the universe. Sad news is due to the demand for a 2nd trade, JMS is going to stop writing monthlies for a year (which includes Superman) since DC wants him to start working on the 2nd trade ASAP.
Oh yeah you didn't update if you had read any new Batman or finished Green Lantern Rebirth or not. Maybe I missed it.

I think he was trying to save them from Apocalypse by submitting to him, but he gets his brain messed with and becomes Apocalypse's new Death. After being a villain for awhile he eventually rejoins the team. Probably got "unbrainwashed' or whatever. I do remember him being with Mister Sinister during Messiah Complex but that might be because of something involving Rogue.

The 2 Superman books I got though were absolutely awesome (ESPECIALLY Red Son... Holy shit. Such a brilliant premise and execution, and I adore how it ended. It did something that I tend to really really dig in fiction literature and it just totally grabbed me on the whole. I highly recommend it). Earth One was also extremely entertaining and I can see why it's getting so much acclaim. The writing, pacing, and artwork were all top notch. I'd have to say I preferred Red Son on the whole, but Earth One is high up there as well.
