THOR #374: Cool but troubling Thor moment

THOR #374 has a Thor moment that might not be awesome or whatever, but I still think it pretty cool. Mainly because how Thor reacts to some very bad news. Guest-starring Angel, Cyclops and Marvel Girl!

Quoting Poe at the worst times. )

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

Let's be careful out there

If you're reading Secret Wars, you'll know that the Thors are the police force of Battleworld. They arrest those who break Doom's Law and keep the peace. But that isn't all the the police do.

From Thors #1 comes the most out there crack to hit Doomgard

Thors is filmed on location with the men and women of law enforcement. The suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law )

Even the writer mocks the crossovers (Loki: Agent of Asgard #12)

Last issue, Loki was bound and gagged by his older self... are we sure this isn't the slash fic he admitted to writing back in issue 1?

Anyway, King Loki is explaining his plan, and he has some unusual names for some of the most recent adventures. Plus there's a marvelous call-back to Simonson's final issue.

Three panels from from this week's "Loki: Agent of Asgard" #12.

Context is... For Asgard! For Midgard! For Myself! )

Marvel Zombies

In light of the recent posts from[personal profile] history79 I figured I'd share the first 'Marvel Zombies' miniseries which branched off from 'Ultimate Fantastic Four'.

'Marvel Zombies' was a pretty fun idea at first. I think Marvel deserves some kudos for letting their characters be used in such a horrific fashion and Kirkman really went wild with the concept in ways that Millar did not. Plus they got to 'own' the term when prior Marvel Zombies was a pejorative term for Marvel fans.

Of course, Marvel is as Marvel does and they ran the franchise into the ground. They've released five versions of the same hardcover with different covers for collectors. There have been over 50 issues at this point that feature the zombies in one form or another. I think at one point there was a "Marvel Apes vs Marvel Zombies" miniseries to get an idea of how far it's gone.

Disclaimer: The following story is very gory and features tons of zombie-related violence. But you didn't need me to tell you that, did you?

Loki: Agent of Asgard #10

In the aftermath of AXIS, Loki is the Hero Of Asgard no more. But one change remains: The God of Lies can only ever tell the truth. Now, Loki’s brother, the Odinson, visits his apartment, to talk of cabbages, kings... and Kid Loki. This is it.

31 Days of Scans: Favourite Multiverse story- The Secret Wars 25 years later-

This was a really hard choice I was remembering how many great Else Worlds there where in the crop of annuals from '94, and I already posted my favourite What If to use for favourite male character... This one ranks a little bit lower for me but it's still a neat concept.

The Beyonder and Galactus kill each other and Reed Richards in the final battle of the Secret Wars leaving the heroes trapped on that strange world. 25 years later there is peace, and a new generation of super powered youngsters.
