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!
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!
This week we vault into a new series, as we start covering Journey Into Mystery with issue #646! Here’s the scoop. Sif wants to be a better warrior, so she seeks out the one who can teach her how to be more of an asshole. On the way she belittles a little girl and talks with a stupid dragon! This will go well…
This week we have a look at Stan Lee’s final regular issue of The Mighty Thor, issue #192! It’s Thor vs. Durok! At Mardi Gras! In a sterotypical South American dictatorship! Plus, Balder and Karnilla go to Mount Everest! Odin sleeps, and Durok gets a manicure between issues! We also have a look at what else was going on in comic-land that month! Nuff said!
At long last, it’s the third installment of our mythology complilation! I promise it won’t be another whole year before Part 4!
This time around, we look at “The Theft of Idunn’s Apples”, “The Marriage of Njord and Skadi”, “The Treasures of the Gods”, and finally “Skirnir’s Journey”
Happy Holidays, everyone!
