Greetings True Believers!

I'm putting away my recently purchased Thor back-issues and I keep running into awesome Volstagg moments.

These ones came from Asgard's war against the Egyptian god Seth.

Enjoy!

I love Walter Simonson's run on The Mighty Thor. One of my favorite bits is the work he did with Volstagg.

"Volstagg possessed a strength the world had never seen. A strength surpassed only by the power of his heart."

(Come on, you know where I cribbed that from. Let's hear it.)

Plus Thor puts little boys to sleep with his magic hammer.

Enjoy!

ComicBookResources has the preview, as we find out the latest activities of Limbo.

Not comic book limbo where characters spend time until stories require them to come back, but the weird place between worlds.

Confusing, isn't it.

Mischief managed. )

It's time for another Balder/Karnilla post.

Surtur and his forces are preparing to destroy the Nine Worlds.

Karnilla will assist Odin and Asgard...for a price.

It's time for another Balder post. Here we learn more about Balder's decision to set down the sword, Volstagg and Hogun are just plain awesome and we meet a young god on a mission of blood who discovers a new path.

Plus I've selected one of the pages that captures the epic and mythic feeling that All-Father Simonson gave to Thor.

Enjoy!

Here is another tale of Balder and Karnilla. This time Karnilla goes too far in her obsessive quest for Balder's affections.

Also, the first appearance of Balder's white hair, Loki and an amusing punishment and one Thor page gloriously out of context.

Decades before the meme, Thor already knew about the connection between his hammer and his manhood. ;)

Enjoy!

I've had a request for B/K goodness so here it is. I do love the way they snap at each other.

While there is much love for the Simonson and JMS runs of Thor (justified) there have been other runs which I feel affection for. Such as Len Wein's.

It's '70s Thor. It's funky and full of adventures. Enjoy!

As most of you know, I'm a huge Thor fan and one of my favorite things in the Thor Mythos is the relationship between Karnilla and Balder.

I love the dynamic and attitude between them. The Legendary Simonson Run is full of B/K goodness but the relationship/flirting/fighting thing they do goes back to Balder and Karnilla's first appearances.

So great is my affection for this OTP that I've decided to post their first meeting from the mini-series, Thor: Son of Asgard. Enjoy!

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!

The recent post about the Thor movie got me jonesing for more Thor. This is an epic moment with Thor and Beta Ray Bill from the Secret Invasion cross-over.

Why do I love this tie-in? Because of the brotherhood between Asgard and Broxton, the friendship between Thor and Bill and the epic battle that followed.

If you're ever in the Marvel universe, remember to follow these rules:

1. Don't fuck with Thor.
2. Don't fuck with Beta Ray Bill.
3. Don't fuck with Asgard
4. Don't fuck with Broxton, Oklahoma.

Okay, I want to start this post off with something midly off-topic (only mildly, I promise, and it ties in to the main post eventually, I promise):

I. Love. My. Boss.

Okay, Carol's not exactly my boss anymore. Friday was her last day, and she left me with a present before she left. You see, her brother left her with all of his old

comic books and never came back for them. She's moving, and had no desire to keep them, so she gave them to me. And do you know what was amongst that treasure trove?

Walt Simonson's run on The Mighty Thor.

And so, I offer you, my friends, the closest thing to a Hildy mega-post we're likely to get.

Lots of images below the cut, pretty large and not the least bit dialup friendly.

We start with Asgard under attack, and Frigga being put in charge of evacuating the children...

Not everyone's down with this plan )

This post is about one of my favorite moments of Loki-Dickery. The fire-demon Surtur prepares to lay waste to Asgard and all creation. So All-Father Odin calls for all Asgardians, good and evil, to fight against him. He calls Balder the Brave from his self-imposed exile act as a ambassador to Loki. But dealing with Loki is never a simple deal.....

Enjoy and remember Walt Simonson is but a mortal aspect of the All-Father.

S_D needs more Kirby and Lee! And more Thor!

Let's combine the two in a delicious sandwich!

Gods bless the '60s, The Man and The King.

Here is the fourth and final part of my mega-post from the 1985 Balder the Brave mini-series. It's a great mini about the relationship between Balder and the Karnilla, Queen of the Norns and their struggle against Utgard-Loki and his Frost Giants. Enjoy part 4, "Balder the Beautiful!"

Once again I indulge in my love for Thor's supporting cast and I once again ask you to come with me! Join Balder in his adventures!

Balder's quest for Karnilla continues as he pwns demons, frees birds and enters the Thunderdome-Frost Giant style. Enjoy!

As you know by this point, I love Thor's supporting cast and Balder the Brave best of all. So I'm posting scans from his 1985 mini-series. It's Simonson and super-sweet. Enjoy!

Balder has returned from his journey with Thor into Hel and discovers Frost Giant tomfoolery!

As most of you probably already know, I love Thor's supporting cast. Out of of all of them, my favorite is Balder the Brave, god of light and prophecy.

He's different then your average Asgardian or Aesir. He's gone through several phases in his life, including a pacficist phase.

Another important part of his life is Karnilla Queen of the Norns. She was a sometimes enemy of Asgard and ally of Loki. She's one of the most powerful magic-users in the nine worlds. She's also desperately in love with Balder.

This mini is set before and after Thor's death-ride into Hel to rescue some trapped mortal souls. (Where Skurge proved his awesomeness for all time.)

Thor is going into Hel and needs the one god who has defeated Hela's legions before. He needs the "Light of Asgard" he needs Balder.

It's time for another Thor post. In these scans we Asgardians at play.

I love scans of Balder and Volstagg being awesome. I'm seriously becoming obsessed with Thor's supporting cast.

For Odin! For Asgard! For Midgard! For Thor! For Balder!
