Click HERE to order THE ESSENTIAL THOR Volume I
Volume One
by Stan Lee & Jack Kirby
Hardcover: 272 pages
Marvel Books
ISBN: 0785107339
Reprinting Journey into Mystery #'s 83-100

This was a trip down memory lane that was well worth the price. Good Kirby art (on most of the stories-- a few were pencilled by others), and an enjoyable trip to the beginings of The Mighty Thor!

Volume One
by Stan Lee & Jack Kirby
Paperback: 528 pages
Marvel Books
ISBN: 0785107614
Ordinary men in extraordinary circumstances. It was the hallmark of the Marvel styles of storytelling in the 1960s when Stan Lee and Jack Kirby were grinding out brand new super heroes like clockwork. So when frail physician Don Blake take refuge in a hidden cave in Scandanavia, it seemed like the origin of many of Marvel's new breed of humanistic heroes. But rather than being given strange powers himself, Dr. Blake instead released another being entirely, a being with whom he would thereafter be forced to share his existence with. For whenever Don Blake strikes his wooden cane to the ground, his weakened frame is replaced by that of Thor, God of Thunder!
Leaping forth from the pages of Journey into Mystery, the adventures of Thor were unlike anything the comic book fan of the 1960s had come to expect. Here was a longhaired, hammer-wielding god who spoke in archaic Shakespearean dialect. And when he wasn't fighting evil, Thor was gone entirely, banished to we-know-not-where so that Dr. Don Blake could resume his human life.

Collected here are the first two years worth of classic Thor stories. Loki, the Asgardian trickster god and Thor's half brother, provides the Thunderer with many of his adventures. But the Thunder God also faces off against a host of villains that typified the over-the-top sensationalism of the comic books of that day, such as the Carbon Copy Man, Sandu, Master of the Supernatural and the Tomorrow Man. Bonus back-up features include Tales of Asgard, where Lee and Kirby retold the Asgardian myths in their own inimitable style. Bound together in a volume that exceeds 500 pages, this affordable collection will take you on your very own Journey into Mystery!

The Mighty THOR
Walter Simonson
by Walter Simonson
Paperback: 288 pages
Marvel Books
ISBN: 0785107584
Thor was always one of the toughest assignments at Marvel. Producing the adventures of the Norse thunder god was an intimidating task; making the travails of Asgardian heroes interesting to a comic book audience was a staggering chore. It didn't help that any creator who leant his skills to the title would inevitably draw comparisons to the Wagnerian power of the character's initial artist, comics legend Jack Kirby. Defying convention, writer-artist Walt Simonson threw all preconceived notions out the window and over a two-and-a-half-year span produced epic adventure that held an ever-growing readership in thrall. 
Simonson wove a complex series of adventures that shuttled mercilessly from the golden spires of fabled Asgard to the streets of New York City to the farthest stars in the Universe. The entire pantheon of the Aesir was completely reimagined through Simonson's powerful images, becoming both more contemporary while retaining their regal, mythic trappings.

Now Marvel presents the finest work of this visionary creator in this collection. Close your eyes and allow yourself to enter a world of rock trolls and frost giants, fire demons and trickster gods. Walt Simonson will take you into this fantastic world and make seem as real as your own.

The Mighty THOR
The Dark Gods
by Dan Jurgens & John Romita, Jr.
Paperback: 128 pages
Marvel Books
ISBN: 0785107398
Back to Basics

Dan Jurgens revisits the earliest roots of Thor, journeying back into mystery to revive the grand and epic tales that Stan Lee & Jack Kirby wrought during Marvel's heyday. Recalling the glory that was Asgard, and not merely retelling the original stories over again,   the art recaptures the grandeur of old, yet compliments rather than distracts from the story.

The Mighty THOR
Across All Worlds
by Dan Jurgens, Stuart Immonen & Andy Kubert
Paperback: 160 pages
Marvel Books
ISBN: 0785107967
Thor, god of Thunder, is a god with more than a passing interest in the doings on Midgard (Earth to you and me). His sense of duty and morality forces Thor to merge his life-spirit into the mortal body of paramedic Jake Olson. Thus, he finds himself a god divided, with loyalties to the court of Odin, ruler of the Norse Gods, and as a man with obligations to friends and family.
This powerfully told story follows the attempt by Lord Malekith the Dark Elf to take over Asgard by unleashing the immeasurable power contained within the Cask of Ancient Winters. With Thor tending to matters on Earth and mighty Odin undergoing the necessary Odinsleep to renew his powers, it falls to Lady Sif to rule and protect the Realm Eternal. Sensing opportunity, Ulik, leader of the Trolls, also decides the time has come to ravage Asgard, so the gods themselves have their hands full.
