It’s time to take another trip up the Rainbow Bridge to fair Asgard with the greatest team comics has ever known – Stan “The Man” and Jack “King” Kirby! Their Thor epics are the peak of cosmic action and mythic adventure, and these ten adventures will show you yet again just why.
It all begins as the Mighty Thor takes a journey across time into an apocalyptic atomic future where man is now mutate, but there’s no rest upon his return because then it’s god vs. god when Thor does battles with Pluto, Lord of the Underworld! And battles aren’t the only thing you can bet on. Queen Karnilla pines for the noble Balder the Brave, while the amazing being known as “Him” (and known to discriminating Marvelites as Adam Warlock) takes the Lady Sif to be his perfect mate! (Methinks that date mayest end in fisticuffs.)
Then it’s a battle through Loki to find – and learn the amazing origin of – the one-and-only Galactus! It’s a cosmic revelation as can only be brought to you by the King of Comics! But that ain’t all! There’s a knuckle-smashing showdown with the Thermal Man, the return of the Wrecker and a heart-wrenching astral adventure featuring Thor’s former ladylove, Jane Foster.
Collecting Thor #163-172.
