Especially leading up to TDW? My buddy suggested Civil War as a good Marvel run in general, but I really need to get some good, Thor-centric material.
I can't suggest any Thor reading material, but personally I'd advise against Civil War if you are looking for quality. The events in Civil War admittedly had a lot of fallout for a lot of the players in its events (mainly Captain America), so it has some value as a way to orient yourself to the Marvel-verse, but that's about it. There are folks who like it though, so YMMV.

No one one outside of the fan base is excited to see Thor 2(people will see it, but it's not a can't wait like hunger games which made me read the books), and Marvel is doing a damn good job, making sure no one cares. This movie NEEDS marketing because if it fails, Phase 2 will be very hard to pull off successfully. But from where I'm standing Marvel seems more concerned with Winter Soldier, and almost seems to be writing this movie off completely.
Loki's massive Fangirl Army will fill the seats in November with or without heavy marketing. I'm not concerned.
