If you want to read the "cool" Thor stuff, you can't beat JMS.
I don't really have a problem with the look and feel of it, I've read a lot of that stuff as I was actually reading comics as a kid in the 80s. It's mainly the theme of Bill that doesn't sit well with me. I don't like copies of heroes in general and especially not when you introduce a horse-faced one that actually beats the original. One of the best ways to devalue a hero.
JMS is awesome though.
