Back to the Future
Reeling from the draining of his power by Odin Thor lost in battle to the Tomorrow Man and his slave robot. Now Thor is under oath to conquer the 23rd century for the nefarious villain. Can Thor save the future and himself without breaking his word?
Stan Lee sets out to resolve Thor's issues with the Tomorrow Man and he succeeds for the most part. Thor's actions while under the thrall of the villain are uncharacteristic of our hero and his solutions to avoid bloodshed are clever albeit typical of ridiculous sixties comics. (he hypnotises guards by reflecting sunlight on his hammer for gods sake!) and the comic ends with a satisfying resolution.
This is a well drawn and inked comic, Kirby does a great job with the futuristic world of the 23rd century, and there are a number of wonderful detailed machines that I enjoyed. Marks off for the terrible ink job by Reinman in the Tales of Asgard story however. All the detail is lost and some pages look like they were drawn by a child.
All in all I've been really enjoying the continued adventures of Thor. The last three issues have all been enjoyable and the effort to tell a continuous story has paid off. This is a satisfying second part resolution to last months story.
