Radio Free Asgard 287

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!

Radio Free Asgard 286

This week it’s an all-action issue as Malekith’s invasion of Asgard hits a snag… a little snag called Thor, The Warriors Three, and Beta Ray Bill!

We have elves riding dogs, not to mention winter in a box, so what do I comment on? Bad pizza physics!

Radio Free Asgard 285

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!

Radio Free Asgard 284

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 😉

Radio Free Asgard 283

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!

Radio Free Asgard 282

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!

Radio Free Asgard 281

This week we’re back to the start of the millennium with Thor v2 #26! The Absorbing Man is back! And he needs a doctor! Sif has *really* long fingers, Odin falls alseep again, Keith Kinkaid comes back long enough to be smacked in the face with a ball & chain! RFA! It’s what the doctor ordered!

This week we wrap up the Thanos/Mangog story with Thor vol.2 #25!! In this issue, we find out how many times Dan Jurgens can recycle a single scene, how many faces Dick Giordano can re-draw, and how spoogy tears can actually be! Plus the Recorder gets blowed up real good! Don’t miss it!

This week we’re back to that same ice planet with those same stalagmites, and the same old gang in the penultimate chapter of the Thanos/Mangog saga! Thor vol. 2 #24!!! It’s an all-action issue, with everything that entails…plus Tarakis turns into a bird! (sort of) This issue courtesy of Jurgens, Romita Jr. and Giordano! It’s Orikal-icious!

It’s the big OOPS episode, as we go back in time and cover Thor vol. 2 #22! Why? Because we screwed up!

This issue features the Mangog and Thanos wrecking a planet of gloopy green snot people in search of the Illumination Stone! Plus.. the first appearance of a future supporting cast member!~ Don’t miss it!

This week we look at Thor v.2 #23, featuring the return (for no apparent reason!)  of the iron-pumping Firelord! Thanos and Mangog continue their rampage, plus you get to hear me try to pronounce “X’Hoss”!! Don’t miss it, true believers!

Radio Free Asgard 232

This week we’re wrapping up the whole Jake Olsen saga (rather a bit too conveniently) ! In the meantime, the Rigellians get trashed by Mangog! It’s the end of an era from Thor Annual 2000! Nuff said!

Radio Free Asgard 231

Hooray! We’re back from hiatus!

And this week we celebrate by  looking at Thor vol. 2 #21!
This issue features Asgard getting beat to hell…. again… and the return of the amusingly top-heavy Mangog, alongside his new master, Thanos, as they seek to get what’s in Odin’s sceptre! Oooh my! Jane Foster returns to Asgard! Plus my thoughts on the Warcraft movie! (no spoilers)
