This week we have a look at the final chapter in our current storyline, as we cover The Mighty Thor #198! Odin is dead! Or is he? Thor fights the Mangog! Volstagg plays water-boy! Hogun finds an interesting way to use his mace, and Sif runs into someone with a very large head! Face front, true believers!
While you all are enjoying Thor’s throwdown with the Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok, we look this week at The Mighty Thor #196 from back in 1972, where the Thunder God faces not one, but TWO big bads, including Kartag the Caretaker and …the Mangog! Guest starring invisible walls, polka-dotted mist, and Captain Birdseye!
In this episode, we look at The Might Thor #196, in which we get the continuation of the war against Mangog, Sif and Hildegarde’s search for a motel, and a very special party! We also meet Mephisto’s sister, Fandral wants to kiss Thor’s “hammer” and Odin does his best Captain Kirk impression! Don’t miss it!
This week we go back in time and cover The Mighty Thor #290! Man-Gog is back! Thor murders a tree! Sif gets sent to the Blackworld! There are trolls and dinosaur/bird things! Odin assembles an old fogey army! Excitement abounds!
This week it’s a cold day in Hel as we cover Thor v2 #32, the 100 Page Monster! Well, 1/4 of the issue anyway… With Malekith seemingly having the upper hand, it’s up to Thor, Beta Ray Bill, Sif, and the rest to defeat Malekith and his icy minions!! It’s the most fun you can have other than watching your fridge defrost! Nuff said!
We’re back! This week we’re covering Thor v2 #30! It’s the return (again??) of Malekith, his pixie friends, Beta Ray Bill (aka Bill-ric of Melnibone), some forced cross-over nonsense, and some great art by Andy Kubert! Nuff said!
This week we cover Thor V2 #29! Jurgens, Kubert & Co present Thor vs The Wrecking Crew, with the life of Hogun the Grim in the balance! Plus, Jagrfelm has a bit of elf trouble, as Malekith the Accused takes “raiding the ice box” to a whole new level 😉
Hey, we’re here this week too! In between episodes of me packing for my upcoming move, we’re looking at Thor v.2 #28, in which our hero and the Warriors Three do some New York City sight-seeing, Sif does some ruling, the Wrecker and his Wrecking Crew hang around in a cheap motel… in costume… and someone offers to “polish Thor’s helmet”…if you know what I mean… Don’t miss it!
It’s Epsiode 282 Redux, as we recover from the Great HD Crash of ’17! In this episode we cover The Mighty Thor (v.2) #27, as Jurgens, Larsen, and Janson give us the second half of the Absorbing Man story! It’s a slug fest in a crumbling tenement with Jane Foster and Titania’s lives in the balance!
Jim and Eric get together to talk some comics, but with the current state of DC Comics, they wonder if they are burned out. That doesn’t stop them from talking for over 7 hours about the books, bats in the attic, flea market shopping and other things… Enjoy!
Jim, Eric, Reggie and the GFC get together to discuss Kite Man’s origin, Superman’s love of the U.S.A. and so much more. Hear what Jim’s favorite color pants are and maybe even an alt-version of Forest Gump…Hell Yea!
