The almighty Thor took his sweet time to become readable. For over two years (1962-64), Thor’s Journey Into Mystery series was seriously lame, at least in this reader’s opinion. Doctor Don Blake repeatedly blew off his patients (Hippocratic Oath be damned) in order to battle a series of silly aliens, uninspired supervillains, dumbass gangsters and (of course) commies. But by 1965, Marvel had finally gotten a read on the character and the issues in this collection are a significant improvement on ...more

It took the Thor feature in JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY several years to become readable. It was a slow journey with many atrocious stories followed by a period of improvement that eventually led to several issues that were pretty good, but not really satisfying. A corner was seemingly turned with #112, and Thor was mostly good thereafter. This book reprints issues 111-120 plus the new material from the JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY ANNUAL #1, so it contains three almost good issues (#113 and the Annual are ...more

A great hardcover book that collects “Journey into Mystery” Nos. 111 to 120 & Annual No. 1. These comics feature The Mighty Thor and the Gods of Asgard! As you can imagine the stories include Thor, Loki and Odin but the also have appearances by The Hulk, The Absorbing Man, Hercules, Mr. Hyde and The Cobra. The book is very attractive and the comic books are reproduced in full color. Truly one of the best ways to collect old comic books is with this type of book…

The stories got better and had more depth beginning with #114, but unfortunately, they chose to end the book on a cliffhanger (The Amazing Spider-Man vol. 2 sort of does this, but this was intentionally avoided in The X-Men vol. 2 and Daredevil vol. 1, both of which included extra issues to prevent this). The Annual that concludes the book is set in the past, so it doesn't count (ChronologyProject.com places it after the Tales of Asgard story in #111). There is an amusing gaffe in which there is ...more

This book collects Thor stories from Journey Into Mystery #111-#120 and Annual #1

The Thor stories begin by finishing a story involving Cobra and Mister Hyde from the previous book. Then in Issue #112 we learn of one of Thor's battles against the Hulk in an awkward way as he happens to be flying by and overhear a group of young people talking and explains a private (undocumented battle he had with the Hulk in Avengers #3. It's really cheesy. Issue 113 has him deciding to give up being Thor but th

Featuring Journey Into Mystery issues 111 to 120, plus the first annual, this collection is a little better than the previous ones as clearly sales were dwindling and The Avengers and The Hulk were called on to boost them.

The Marvel Masterworks volumes are fantastic reprints of the early years of Marvel comics. A fantastic resource to allow these hard to find issues to be read by everyone. Very recommended to everyone and Highly recommended to any comic fan.

Early Thor comics are a bit hit-and-miss. When he's not too busy wangsting over Jane, there are some decent stories to be had.

Fabulous stuff from Lee and Kirby at the height of their work together. Well, except for the clunker story in Vietnam, anyway.

I think the cover of this edition depicts Thor re-forging Mjolnir in the blazing furnaces of PITTSBURGH.
