Thor #1 (2018) Jack Kirby Remastered Color Edition cover

This issue was written by Jason Aaron with interior art from Mike del Mundo and Christian Ward. Although this was branded #1, the continuation issue number was #707, and the comic featured Juggernaut amongst others with two separate stories:

God of Thunder Reborn

Thor is back. While still unworthy of lifting his hammer, Mjolnir, he is once more the God of Thunder.

Just in time, too. For the city of Asgardia has been destroyed, Jane Foster is still battling cancer, and the All-Father Odin is busy trying to restore old Asgard to its former glory. So it's up to Thor to stop Malekith's attempt to conquer all of the Ten Realms. But with the Rainbow Bridge shattered, he has no way of taking the fight to the Dark Elf King

The Grace of Thor

In the far future, all-father Thor and his three granddaughters resparked life on planet Earth after a millennia had left it barren. The first new humans were named "Steve" and "Jane" and given free range over the new Midgard.
