Greetings True Believers!

Here are some scans from Thor #6. The interaction between the Asgardians and the Broxtonites are priceless.

It's so nice to see normal people in the Marvel universe not being stupid or acting like dicks.

Here two of my favorite scenes. Volstagg at a town council meeting and Hogun assisting a motorist in trouble.


Suggested Tags: char: hogun, char: volstagg, title: thor, publisher: marvel comics, creator: j michael straczynski, creator: olivier coipel

Volstagg has gotten his cake. Let the meeting begin!

Oh, big V. You explain things so well.

Later, residents of Broxton are swapping tales of encountering the Asgardians. One man tells how he and his son were helped by Hogun when they had car trouble.

Love it, the dialogue, the art and "...with a tan." So awesome!

Not that I have a problem with Ray Stevenson, but I really can't understand why the role of Vollstag in the Thor movie didn't go straight to Brian Blessed.

Maybe BRIAN BLESSED (yes, I have to type it in all caps) was busy?

I love it when Hogun has moments of not-so-grim.
It makes it so much funnier since you just know he means it when he says he wants to get a tan.

I remember times when he was on Paul O'Grady show every two weeks, talking about dogs and doggies and have I mentioned that he loves his dogs?
Maybe if they offered him a puppy...

There is a very crude "if Obelix and Asterix had a baby" joke in here that I could make but I am not going to make it, because I don't want to give you all the mental images of Asterix and Obelix doing the nasty.

My favorite part is in the meeting scene, we have one half of the room filled with normal people, the other half filled with the Asgardians in all their Kirbyesque glory, and only one or two of the Broxtonites are even looking their way.

Also the look on their faces when they're asked if they're still tossing their crap over the wall.

"...first Asgardian with a tan"

I'd guess Heimdall beat him to it then, based on the new Thor movie?

I WOULD HAVE LOVED to see him in that role. Especially if you've ever seen him in the first season of Blackadder, but he's getting on in age (He's in his 70's) and he seems to be doing more voice acting now..(Well, he did do some funny online skits where he's Henry VIII ad he has to deal with modern technology) but if they do find a time machine, I say get the Brian from 1983 and use him for Vollstag.

Notice that one of the ones looking at the Asgardians is Bill. Probably trying to get a peek at Kelda. :D

Plus, how does he intend to get a tan when he's wearing long sleeves and a fur cap?

I'd never read a single Thor issue until I checked out this JMS run, and I absolutely loved it.

As you say, the art, the humour, the seriousness. It was all very good. I still don't care that much for Thor, the character, but Balder, Volstagg and Heimdall are great. I also really liked Bill of Bills.

Unfortunately, I kind of lost track with it when Marvel changed the numbering of the issues, and all the Secret Invasion nonsense happened. I really should catch up with it.

Yessss Baldur being embarrassed about throwing poop over the walls is adorable.

And there's a sentence I never thought I'd write.

Fun fact: I live in UK but my English is American, and sometimes I have a hard time remembering to say "film" or "trausers" instead of "movie" and "pants".

Yup, read all the issues of that run today (thanks to your scans) and I'm definitely ordering the TPBs.

I am absolutely in love in Bill of Bills and Kelda, I cried when he... you know... D:

I loved the panels with Bill teaching the Asgardians how to play Basketball... or not, because they really seem to lack focus.

lol, this is great. Thank you so much for sharing. I've never read Thor, but I might just have to pick it up.

Meantime, though, the cut text reminds me of this comic.

But, of course, every time I think of anything from that particular webcomic, I have to think of this brilliant one, which is the best take I've ever seen on a certain physics thought experiment.

I have always thought that Hogun was bynamed "the Grim" simply because his sense of humor was too dry for Asgardians.
Sample of Hogun (when asked if he got his boars in Texas): "That is where they are to be hunted." A simple "Yes" would have done, yet he chooses to subtly emphasize the obtuseness of the question.
Sample of Average Asgardian (shamelessly stolen from Up: "A frost giant says, 'Oh no, I tried to trick Thor and he hit me upside the head with his hammer and now I am dead!' It is funny because the frost giant gets dead!" (gulps mead)
