30 Days of Winter: Day 24 - Last Stands - Skurge at Gjallerbru

Greetings True Believers!

Any day of Last Stands must begin with the greatest of them all....the Tale of Skurge, the Executioner who stood alone at Gjallerbru.

Walt Simonson gave Skruge an ending so epic, so metal that the warriors and the skalds of the world unite in respect and honor.

His name was as Skurge! Say it, damn you, say it loud!

Hela, goddess of the dead and Hel stole mortals that were not hers to take in Midgard. The Thunderer and his warriors cannot allow this. So Thor, Balder and a crew of M-16 toting Einherjar travel to the realm of the dead to get them back. Skurge the Executioner. Ever the enemy of Thor and Balder travels with them. For he is tired of defeat, the mocking laughter of others and the way the Enchantress toys with his heart.

The battles are long and difficult but the forces of Asgard win back the stolen souls. They flee the underworld with the armies of Hel hot on their heels. At the end of Hela's kingdom is the Gjallerbru. A stand must be made here to delay the armies of evil.

"He stood alone at Gjallerbru...and that is answer is enough."

The one time I didn't mind seeing a mythic figure actually using a gun. So 90's, but timelessly badass all at the same time.

Oh, I'm sorry. Something must have given me the idea this was a 90's thing...

I think it was this:

Looking at the scans, yeah, that's definitely 80's art, on second thought. It was just the use of guns where it didn't seem apt that made me think it was a 90's comic.

Not nearly enough crosshatching to be 90's art.

I've got it and could send it to you, if you'd like.

And damn, I'm only twenty issues away from that in my reading. I wonder if I would be missing too much if I just skipped the entire Dark Age. Probably, and anyway the completist in me rebels at the thought. *sigh*

That cover angle of the gun and the "No more mr. nice guy" looks straight off of Frank Miller's classic Daredevil and Punisher matchup.
