This is without a doubt the best omnibus Marvel has released thus far. The re-colouring is outstanding and the stories are still relevant and important today. A must buy!Published on July 24 2011 by Brandon
I was never a big Thor fan. I read the JMS run, and watched the movie, but Thor always took a backseat to Spider-man, X-men, Iron Man, Captain America etc. Read morePublished on July 8 2011 by Brad Byrne
