This week we look at The Mighty Thor #406, a book in which Thor goes up against a giant spark plug in his search for the fate of the High Evolutionary and Hercules! Also in this book, The Warriors Three play a part in Earth’s creation, and Thor goes streaking and lives in a yellow submarine! ‘Nuff said!
This time out, we look at The Mighty Thor #403, featuring the menace of Quicksand! Also, Odin gets pissed, and we have the return of two old foes… Plus, an all-new Tale of Asgard, in which Thor & Loki go up against some wolves!
It’s a cornucopia of swipes/homages this week, as we cover The Mighty Thor #402! This issue features the return of the eeevil Quicksand, along with a bunch of re-worked Kirby/Sinnott art, and then we get a re-purposed Norse myth in a new Tales of Asgard! Who says this isn’t the Mighty Marvel age of recycling?
As we’re all ‘enjoying’ our lockdowns, I have a look at The Mighty Thor #401 from 1989! Thor teams up with some Vikings to fight giant rats, and a cartoonish dragon! What more could you possibly want from a comic?!
This time we cover ‘The Last Days of Loki’ from Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythology, a story all about the invention of fishing nets! Also people being disemboweled by wolves…. and snake venom torture… and earthquakes….
This week we continue our coverage of The Unworthy Thor with issue #2! There’s action aplenty as the Odinson and his pal Beta Ray Bill face off against Jeff Goldblum! Thor dreams, a new hammer appears, and there are weird eyeball tie fighter thingers! It’s even more fun than a toilet paper shortage!
This time around, we’re looking at Little Red Ridin…er… The Unworthy Thor #1! While Jane Foster is running around being Thor, what is the Odinson up to? Fighting trolls and talking to strangers for a start! Why not listen in, and find out more?
Happy Holidays, everyone! This episode, we have a look at The Mighty Thor #210, where we find out that Gerry Conway keeps track of his Norse lore about as well as I do, and learn that uru can be magnetized! Plus, the return of everyone’s favorite troll!
360?? It’s a full circle, and a mythology episode, as we return to Gaiman’s Norse Mythology to cover “The Death of Balder”!! This episode includes the gods throwing things at people for fun, an oddly familiar giantess, and the gratuitous death of a random dwarf…
