Holy Mjolnir, True Believer! Tis time for another monolithic masterpiece of Mighty Thor mania! And how!
We lieth not, were preparing an assaulting assemblage of Asgardian artifacts as only Stan and Jack could articulate them. Featuring the one and only Thunder God in the tales that put the cosmic in comics. It all kicks off with a slobbernocker of knock-down, drag-out propo

The Warriors Three! Hercules! The prophecies of Ragnarok! All hell (literally) breaks loose as stories become more and more mythological, setting up one of Kirby's most creative phases.

Issues covered: JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY #121-125, THE MIGHTY THOR #126-130 (October 1965 - July 1966) - plus material from NOT BRAND ECHH #3

Acquired at Fat Jack's Comicrypt, Philadelphia, PA, March 23, 2018

Thor graduates to his own title, as Journey into Mystery is renamed to match its feature player! Much of this volume is concerned with finishing up the slugfest with the Absorbing Man, then establishing Hercules and the Greek Pantheon in the Marvel Universe. Hercules presents an interesting case,

More Thor!

While the Jane foster soap opera is never-ending, Hercules returns for a great arc, and Thor must save Odin from a usurper! Early marvel at its best!

When Stan Lee started writing Thor, it was pretty lacking in mystical grandeur. Now he's started gradually easing in the pseudo-Elizabethan language we remember and the constant contact with pantheons of other gods. He falls into the trap of making Pluto a villain, but even then, at this volume's end, Pluto is shown to be someone of honor. Hercules is a major character contrast to Thor--brash and immature, as one would expect from a guy who was prone to family-killing bouts of madness. the throw ...more

As the cover suggests, this collection largely focuses on a number of fights involving Hercules. Even though there is such a tight focus, with the collection starting out with enemies Loki and The Absorbing Man then moving on to the Hercules centric tales, this is one of the better collections for Thor.

Early Thor, lots of one off battles. It gets interesting with a longstory about his meeting Hercules and how their relationship affects him. There's lots of romance too. This is slowly getting to be the Thor we now know. A good read.

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.

Lee and Kirby start downplaying the secret identity soap opera and playing up the epic-scale mythological conflicts, and the series (already my favorite classic Marvel comic) is the stronger for it.

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.
