Despite being an ancient god, the Marvel Thor is an act of creative genius Dec 28 2010
By Charles Ashbacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
While Thor is of course an old character of Norse mythology, the creation by the team of Kirby & Lee is highly original. He is a mighty warrior bred, a God on Earth that speaks as a god would speak, with a Shakespearean manner of phraseology. Because one of the hardest things is to take an old character and somehow make it original, I have always considered Thor to be one of the greatest expressions of creativity by Kirby & Lee. As a fan of mythology, I also enjoy reading about the other characters in the Thor stories and cross-referencing them in textbooks and stories of the Old Norse gods.
This book contains the complete Thor comic books numbered from 153 through 162. One of the best topics is the origin of Thor as the mortal Doctor Blake. It is an excellent tale, worthy of a myth itself for as Odin himself says, "Even a god must learn humility."
Of course a great hero needs to battle powerful villains and that is what Thor does. The villains run from his evil brother Loki all the way to the unstoppable Galactus, the devourer of worlds. One amusing character is the emotionless Recorder, a being that has been constructed to be only a repository of information. In many ways the Recorder is similar to the Data character of "Star Trek: The Next Generation."
The dialog is excellent and the artwork is superb, so many times the publishers of books of collected comics skimp on the costs of republication, but that is not the case here. This is a book that will warm the heart of every fan of the classical Marvel comics.

Which came first? Thor or Don Blake? Sept. 19 2011
By M J Heilbron Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
So here we go with Marvel Masterworks #96, or Thor #7. This book compiles #153-162, all Stan Lee/Jack Kirby classics.
This volume contains more classic moments in ten issues, than any other Thor Masterwork. This is the most bang for your buck.
Loki pilfers Mjolnir, which peeves Thor. Worse, Loki starts beating up on Sif, a clear Asgardian no-no. So Thor wraps a street sign post around Loki (it THAT all it takes now?), turns back into Dr. Blake, and surgically repairs Sif. (Being a surgeon myself, I found this a little more cool than you might...)
Thor chit-chats with Hela. Ulik the Impossibly Ugly, tossed down some mine shaft in the preceding volume, finds some big ol' door that says "do not open". So he does, being Ulik and all.
He sets free the Mangog, who's now bent on destroying everything.
Literally everything. This is the Ragnarok people have been worried about. "Ragnarok, the death of all thy universe!"
But as all creation is in jeopardy of ending, get this: Odin is taking a nap, and cannot be awakened or else, I dunno, all creation ends? So we're toast either way?
In the middle of all this, Thor meets hippies.
While Odin snoozes, Loki jumps on the throne, saying "Mine! Mine! Mine! I got here first! Nyah nyah!"
The Recorder shows up again.
Word of Mangog's approach reaches Asgard, and Loki does his usual "Oops! Silly me!" thing...and takes off. To where, I don't know, since the entire universe is ending soon, so, like Cancun is out of the question...
Thor and Mangog have an epic battle over several issues.
Odin wakes up, snaps his fingers, and everything's fine. Something about an illusion.
Is it me, or is this Odin guy an arrogant weenie?
The next two issues answer the question that should have been bothering you since the first issue of Journey Into Mystery that starred Thor.
Is Thor Don Blake, or is Don Blake Thor? If Thor existed before he inhabited Blake, what did either of them do before that moment? Sure, we saw bits of Thor in those "Tales of Asgard" shorts, but where is Don Blake from? Indiana? New Mexico? Who are his parents? Republican or Democrat?
All of this gets answered here. Once and for all. Or as once and for all as the Marvel Universe gets, my friends.
This titanic tome ends with two issues starring Galactus, the Recorder, Ego the Living Planet...now this tale, as they say, is a doozy. You get hints of the origin of Galactus, spectacular fight scenes, more Kirby space vistas...
Meanwhile, throughout all of this, Thor and Sif still have time to make goo-goo eyes at each other, and Balder gets seduced by Karnilla. Although I think Karnilla sounds like she should be seducing somebody like Godzilla not Balder the Brave.
This is a fantastic collections of classic tales, beautifully reproduced...maybe my favorite volume so far!
On to Volume 8!
These Thor color reprints bring back the joy of comics again. Feb. 9 2014
By Morgan Painter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The new printing makes the colors brighter than ever. Plus you don't have to leaf through those endless ads for 'Sea Monkeys.' And such a deal. It would cost a small fortune to get these classics in the original comic book form. The service was fast and the book arrived in perfect condition since it was extremely well packaged. I sure hope they reprint more in this series.

Amazing May 6 2010
By David Keith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Lee and Kirby's Thor really kicks into high gear with this volume. The whole series is a lot of fun, but the creators are hitting high watermarks here. Classic and timeless. Recommended.
