    Probablemente ya lo he dicho antes, pero Thor no es mi personaje favorito. Sin embargo, esta historia es genial, y hasta me parece que ha envejecido bastante bien: al ocupar cada capítulo un comic completo, Stan Lee no necesita comprimir tanto la historia, y eso le da lugar a Jack Kirby para dibujar esas viñetas grandes y páginas completas que tan lindas le salen. Las historias en si, son bastante directas, con un poquito de suspenso, un enemigo imparable y personajes secundarios divertidos.

Como bonus, la historia extendida del origen de Thor está muy bien escrita para su época, tiene profundidad y le da una buena respuesta a una pregunta que yo mismo me hacía, "Si Donald Blake ahora es Thor, ¿Quién era antes?".

    As always Kirby and Lee show why Marvel is the global brand it is today. They have taken mythology and brought it to a new audience, in new and creative ways but never too far from it's source material. Kirby is clearly having fun here with Asgard and the various monsters he creates, and shows why he was the major building block in the success of the major titles, even so long after they were originally released the majority if his artwork stands up to modern day methods and can be seen as an in As always Kirby and Lee show why Marvel is the global brand it is today.

In terms of story Stan Lee is also having fun, playing with the grandiose nature of mythology and proving the naysayers wrong by making it work. There are at times here where I believe that the story is too long and stretched out and some of it doesn't stand up too well to the test of time. I may be harsh with the criticism over the length of story but after been spoiled by Lee with Tales of Asgard I know how much he can get done with 4 or so pages. All in all still a very enjoyable book especially with a character I'm not the biggest fan of in comics, the particular highlight was to see Lee tackle the question of who is Don Blake/Thor. It will be also interesting to see if any of this story helps form the cinematic universe Thor Ragnarok film.

    Standard Kirby/Lee superheroics with a boastful, bigmouthed foe rampaging towards a destination to try and cause the end of the universe. Loki is cowardly and evil, Thor and the other Asgardians are typically warrior-like (except Odin, who's conveniently out of action until the appropriate point in the denouement) and there's the requisite amount of cod-Shakesperean theeing and thouing. It's a well-chosen example of Lee and Kirby's Thor in that sense, enlivened by moments such as the plot stoppi Standard Kirby/Lee superheroics with a boastful, bigmouthed foe rampaging towards a destination to try and cause the end of the universe.

It's a well-chosen example of Lee and Kirby's Thor in that sense, enlivened by moments such as the plot stopping for Thor to lecture some hippies and a rather beautifully worked moment where one of the invincible foe's boasts is actually a clue as to his true nature (it alleviates the slight cop out of the resolution). It's padded out with a reprint of Thor's origin story, but there's a decent excuse for this as the issue following the reprint recasts Thor's origin from an entirely different perspective. It amends him from a human who turns into God into a more Superman figure, that he was always a god masquerading as mortal. Fun but inessential.

    Anthology of The Might Thor #153-159. Includes the story of the battle with Mangog and a retelling of the Origin story of Thor including an explanation from Odin as to why Thor was placed among mortals. There is something wondrous about Jack Kirby's illustrations. His drawings of Mangog and some of his full page panels that spring up are awe inspiring. As much as I liked the story I still found myself being kicked out by the telling rather than showing in the story telling. And it is for this reas Anthology of The Might Thor #153-159.

    A collection of old Thor issues concerning the threat of Mangog, a monster invested with the power of a billion beings. Mangog threatens Asgard and the very universe itself and Thor and his companions try their best to stop him. For those who have read a lot of Thor the ending is pretty obvious, but it probably was less expected back then.

    The end of the world. A foe to even beat the stuffing out of Thor and the Warriors Three...yes indeed. Odin asleep (you'll have to read it to find out why) and Loki in charge...what? Yep it all happens in this one. The end of the world. A foe to even beat the stuffing out of Thor and the Warriors Three...yes indeed.
