Thor: The Mighty Avenger The End

Greetings True Believers!

Oh, how I shall miss this series.

It was too fun, too cute and too happy.

Here are the final pages, Tony big pimpin' and a nice message from the creators.

Remember this series and recommend it to all!

Jane is looking for Thor and she calls a friend who in turn calls another friend.

Ha, I miss this Tony, not a bastard, not running things. Just rolling off the bed filled with supermodels and empties to fight supervillains and commies.

Turns out that the reason Thor lost his memories was because some mysterious science dude tried to body-swap with him.

Thor is a prisoner but breaks his shackles and fights the dude's robots. Iron Man shows up, fights Thor briefly then they stop the science-dude. Base blows up and Tony tells Thor to call Jane.

Aww, I like that. No need for a grand ending or battle. Just walking off together, perfect.

Now a note from the creators.

Equally nice. I will treasure this series.

Adorable! It's kind of interesting to see a lanky Thor.

I think you've got the two "raining on the crops" pages out of order, though!

seconded. It was all I wanted in a comic book: good writing, good characters, fantastic art. I went out of my way to buy every single issue, being ridiculously excited in the comic store every time.

Marvel can't help it consistantly sold extremly low, if not the lowest.

What an appropriate time to post this! I was just looking for an excuse to use my new sad icon.

This series was buckets of fun. My favorite Marvel book in a long time. Why didn't it do better? It was the best Thor book out there!

I bought both volumes of this, and they're the only books that never get switched out of the little Disney bookbag I carry with me to work. I read them both at least once a week.

I haven't read this (yet), but it seems well worth checking out. I miss comics that could be both well-written and fun. It's a shame that mainstream Marvel and DC seem obsessed with making everything darker and more serious while simultaneously tying as many books as possible in with the never-ending parades of mega events. Most of the good books at the big two seem to be out of continuity these days.

I found out it was no more, with the arrival of my second trade ... I was kinda hoping against hope though, ya know?

I wonder if they'd let others pick up, where the original story left off (as in legit comic, *not* fanfic!), but then again, that's just opening the door to utter disaster, ain't it? :-/

I loved this series so much that I went and bought both TPBs!

I'm really saddened that they canceled this, I really wanted to know what Loki was up to dammit! Oh an by the look of Chris' sketches we were going to have Cap on this too >:(

I was kinda hoping that it'd be a friendlier Loki who's not an antagonist of Thor.

As he had appeared, he was certainly troublesome, but I also got the idea he and Thor were buds. I like that Loki.

I kinda like stories where he's Thor's ally as often as a source of Thor's trouble.

"Oh an by the look of Chris' sketches we were going to have Cap on this too >:("

That's actually still coming out as a Free Comic Book Day thing.

Yep--here's the listing and a few page preview, if you're interested. :)

Well, if this news doesn't give me a reason to be front row center on FCBD, nothing else will.

...Still mad at Marvel though. *sulks*

It just seemed to me that rain was necessary. So I made it rain.

I thought that Thor might be making popcorn, with all the lightning.

There were times where it felt like they were trying way too hard to be cute, from what I've read, but overall The Mighty Avenger looked like a really fun comic.

What I don't get is why--

A) This book didn't get it's first trade until it was cancelled--especially odd's freaking Marvel! They pretty much publish the trades the week after the arc is finished.
B) They didn't wait to see if the movie buzz after it came out would help the sales. I get that they'd want Fraction's Mighty Thor (and that first arc sounds awesome--Thor vs. Galactus!) to have a boost like they did with Invincible Iron-Man, but I could see both of them working well to catch other audiences.

Dammit, I really loved this series. Like, all of it. Art, writing, character designs...

Oooh, this looks awesome. *puts on 'buy' list*

Though I hate to say it, Thor, but even after all that the Marvel civilians probably still hate you because they are always, ALWAYS assholes.
