Collects Thor #267-278, 1977-78; Marvel Preview #10, 1975. Highly Recommended. By Len Wein and Roy Thomas. Art by Walter Simonson, John Buscema et al. Not just one, but two teams with godlike creative talents! First, Len Wein and Walter Simonson pit Thor against mercenaries with a nuclear cobalt cannon, bang on the Stilt-Man like a tin can, rock the world in a battle with Blastaar and conquer the massive artificial intelligence F.A.U.S.T. Then, Roy Thomas and John Buscema take up the hammer in some of the most beautifully illustrated Asgardian epics of all time! They'll tap deep into Thor's mythic roots, crafting amazing adventures featuring Loki, the death of Balder, the Midgard Serpent and a new Norse Thor. Also never-before-reprinted Thor and Hercules stories from the b&w zine Marvel Preview, from 1977.

These last magazine reprints are particularly nice. In black and white you can really enjoy the line work of the artists here: Jim Starlin, Tony DeZuniga on Thor, and Val Mayerick on Hercules. Writers are Len Wein and Bill Mantlo. Plus more bonus material: house ads, Roy Thomas' editorial from Thor #272, and 26 pages of reproductions of the original art and pencil prelims and cover roughs by all the artists noted above. Plus a double page Foom spread by up-and-coming John Romita, Jr. and an unused Thor pencil page by Rich Buckler from 1978. Man, the extras here just don't stop. Great stuff!
