The JiM intros/recaps/previews are most often hilarious and cute. Issue #629 had full doses of both.

Loki's Magic Secret Action Squad!

Volstagg explains it all!

Enjoy!

Hello! Long-time lurker, first time poster here. Recent discussions of the DC reboot and the event some think is at the root of it (the long-term decline of sales since the implosion of the 90's comics-as-investment market) got me nostalgic for when I was most a purchaser of comics: the period of about 1982-1992 when publishers like Comico and Eclipse and First popped up and pushed Marvel and DC out of their comfort zone. As it happens I've been meaning to clean out the walk-in closet where I know I've got something like twenty boxes of comics and I've got a brand-new scanner here, so I thought I'd share some of the little gems I come across.

So far I've only found one box (I have a lot of crap in the closet), but it contained some fun items. I thought I'd start with a story from Marvel Fanfare #13, publication date March 1984. Now I know exactly why I bought this comic -- it would have been around 1986 and I was a big fan of both George Perez and Art Adams. The lead story was by the former, part of a continuing Black Widow story, while the cover was the latter (and, as far as I can tell from Wikipedia, was his first professionally published work). Still am a fan of both, actually, but at that time the local comic shop had Charles Vess in to sign things and this issue was among the books they had out for sale if one were interested in an autograph -- he had drawn the backup story. I figured what the heck and ponied up, since I'd at least have the Adams and Perez work. I didn't know who Vess was at the time, and I'm still kind of lukewarm about the Warriors Three, but I do know they get a lot of love around this community. And in the years since 1986 I've come to love Charles Vess with the passion of a thousand burning suns. He's one of the folks who turned me on to Art Nouveau illustration, examples of which now decorate my place of residence in all their glory.

So let us begin... )

I know this because The King and The Man tell me so.

Plus, Volstagg must have taught some of his mad hiding skillz to Solid Snake.

Enjoy!

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!

Here's one from the vaults! The Mighty Thor #248 to be exact.

When the Warriors Three hit the Big Apple it's like a kegger/brawl/buffet all rolled into one.

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!

Just watched it (yeah I know it was available in March). It was enjoyable, yet kinda weird. It didn't feel like Marvel's Thor universe at all to be honest. I thought it was going to be an animated version of the Son of Asgard comic series; it had some design similarities, but it isn't based on it at all.

Post gets kind of spoilery in the middle so it'll be behind a cut. So don't click it if you don't want to know anything!

There's some issues I have with the plot and nitpicky with some of the production value, but really I watched it because there's a teen!Loki in it ;D

This show has THE most well-adjusted and HAPPY Loki I have ever seen )

So overall, can I recommend it? It's a fun diversion of the Marvel Thor universe, but not one that can be placed in any of the continuities (guess you can say some kind of weird version of the Asgardians before one of the other Ragnaroks). I would like to see a continuation of this movie with better production values and where they can focus on the more adult-oriented way with the script, because there's potential there.

But you're not missing anything if you don't watch it. It's kind of like a good bit of fanfiction.

For added fun, imagine events in the entire movie as a giant metaphor about penis sizes. Because it can totally work as that.

This image is so weird you just have to click to see it )

Ah, internet memes. One of the pillars of the internet, right up there with youtube and porn.

It's always fun when comic book versions surface.

If you've been on the interwebz in the last decade, you've seen a "haters gonna hate" picture. I've decided to post my favorite comic book versions of this meme.

Post your own if it pleases you.

Enjoy!

It's time once again to gaze upon the awesomeness that is VOLSTAGG!

But do not gaze too long, remember thou art mortal.

Volstagg travels to Broxton to grace the little people with his presence and his mastery of the culinary arts.

But hold! A foe appears! A...holy man!?!

Plus Volstagg being awesome, cuz that's what he does/is.

Four pages from Thor: Whosoever Wields This Hammer. Most of the book is the reprinting of several old Thor stories with new colors, but it also gives us the framing device of Volstagg being put in charge of his unruly offspring under the threat of no nookie.

And it has Hildy, who as you all know, I adore.

And Kid-Loki is still the most lovable little boy who ever came out of Asgard, even if none of the others think so.
