Friday the 13th: How I Spent My Summer Vacation



I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with Friday the 13th. I like Jason as a character but I find his films to be pretty boring. Fortunately he's fared better in the comics as 'How I Spent My Summer Vacation' shows.

Warning for gore/violence.

Was it worth it?

This week Generations: The Unworthy Thor & The Mighty Thor came out. If you like Jason Aaron's Thor run (which stretches back to November 2012*) then Jason Aaron's enerations: The Unworthy Thor & The Mighty Thor is another issue of Jason Aaron's Thor. I enjoyed it immensely.

Unfortunately, the labelling makes it slightly confusing as to who actually appears.

While there is no doubt as to who is the Mighty Thor, the Unworthy Thor isn't who might first come to mind. A better term might be the Pre-Worthy Thor who has not yet proved himself worthy of wielding a Mjolnir, rather than the Post-Worthy Thor with the Uru arm, who lost Mjolnir and took up Jarnbjorn because Nick Fury whispered to him on the moon.

Generations is a decent self-contained story (but with a shoe-horned in epilogue that does nothing for me) about why a Thor needs Midgard and what it means to be a God and when Thor first met Thor )

The other time last year a Jason Aaron-written book told tales in parallel.

It was two months after the same kind of thing'd been done in Doctor Strange.

It was The Mighty Thor #7, part two and the conclusion of " The Strongest Viking There Is ".

It was during Thor's second round with the titular dragon-blood-empowered pawn of Loki's.

The God of Mischief told the flashback to 896 A.D.

He told it characteristically. )
