The stories that built the Marvel Universe! Thor’s origin and first ten appearances. And cross the Rainbow Bridge to eternal Asgard and meet Odin, Heimdall, Balder, and Thor’s evil half-brother Loki — for his first appearances! The formative adventures of Thor, one of the most individual of Marvel’s Silver Age creations and one of our favorites! Plus great “Tales of Asgard” backup features, also by Kirby!

While vacationing in Norway, scrawny slight Dr. Donald Blake happened upon a hidden cave…and inside, he found a strange, gnarled cane. Upon hitting the cane on a rock, a sudden bolt of lightning struck — and the hobbled doctor found himself transformed into the mighty Thor, God of Thunder and champion of Asgard!

Tales of Asgard is unique among the early Marvel creations. This was a chance to illustrate the classic tales of Norse legend, with all the famous heroes, sans our new incarnation of Thor. Beautiful goddesses like Sif, evil Loki, Odin; here Stan and Jack could have fun with the mythology in bite-sized back-up stories. And they did, making Tales of Asgard one of the most fun features in the 1960s. Here is Kirby at his finest, with wonderful costumes and fantasy settings. He had to have loved doing this!

The seminal beginning of all the Marvel heroes and teams, now being made available in an accessible and inexpensive new format, perfect for all ages. Thor also appears in The Avengers Mighty Masterworks, as he was one of the original team beginning in #1.
