Who cast the final stone, who threw the crushing blow, someone has to take the fall*

Nothing says Father's Day quite like fighting your own grandfather because your brother tricked you into it.

This is 10 pages from the 40 page story of Thor #600 written by JMS and drawn by Olivier Coipel

Some giggles for your Sunday (EDIT)

EDIT: now with added cute

:) Slight nudity, and lots of crack. I know one of you has this in his/her icon. Also, gay.

How to woo a god...  )

When the chips are down, look for Volstagg!

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.

Volstagg's greatest power.

Greetings True Believers!

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.

Journey into Mystery #626 preview

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. )

Karnilla's Proposal

Greetings True Believers!

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.

Volstagg raps about Balder, Norn Pep Talk and We Meet Agnar the Vanir

Greetings True Believers!

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.

Balder and Karnilla: Till Death Do Us Part

Greetings True Believers!

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. ;)

More Balder & Karnilla Goodness

Greetings True Believers!

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!

My favorite Thor couple: Balder and Karnilla

Greetings True Believers!

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!

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!

Thor/Beta Ray Bill: Brothers of the Hammer

Greetings True Believers!

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.

If your name was Gunnhild, you'd probably act the same way

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 )

Loki, thy name is Dickery.

Greetings True Believers!

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.

Greetings True Believers!

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.

Balder the Brave mini-series Part 3

Greetings True Believers!

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!

Balder the Brave mini-series Part 2

Greetings True Believers!

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!
