5.0 out of 5 stars thors early adventures still entertain. 2 July 2012
Format:Paperback
This is the second volume of Thor reprints; and the lee/kirby team was really starting to hit it's stride. It's early sixties excellence all the way. The cheaper softcover is a good way to go and hopefully Marvel will start putting out all their stuff this way. Although I like the hardcovers better the price on them is too restrictive for most people. These tales are remastered and they look great. I don't agree with any nitwit that says scanning old yellow comics is better than reconstruction. If you look at the pages of original art in this volume and then the reconstructed pages they look exactly the same. Thanks be to marvel for doing it right ,unlike d.c. with it's terrible scanning and cheap paper. Thor remains a true original too with it's storylines that mix mythology and superheroics on earth.

4.0 out of 5 stars When did Thor operate on Doctor Strange to save his life? 30 Jun 2011
By M J Heilbron Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Marvel Masterworks #26, Thor Volume 2

Continuing the reprinting of Thor's earliest tales, here we have the second volume of the Journey Into Mystery Thor stories, from issues #101-110.

This book, contrary to the first volume, benefits from having the legendary team of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby from start to finish. While Stan still has a problem finding something interesting for a Norse God to do here on Earth, Jack starts to get a handle on some of the Asgardian visuals which will become mind-blowing later on in the series.

Loki is still the primary bad guy, showing up in about half the issues. We also get the return of a few foes: Zarrko the Tomorrow Man, the Cobra, Dr. Hyde (both of them twice), as well as the initial (I think) appearances of the Enchantress, the Executioner, and the Grey Gargoyle.

Usually you'll find something unique or bizarre or mind-blowing at least once while going through these old comics, and in #108, I found a doozy.

Dr. Don Blake has to operate on Dr, Strange to save his life? Thor operated on Dr. Strange? Are you serious? This never came up later?
Did they ever have a conversation, like, "Hey Thor buddy, thanks for taking out my burst appendix!"
"Thou is most welcome, o ethereal one."
Ever? Don't ya think it might come up? Even just to check on his surgical scar?

Actually, for all I know, they might have had this sort of conversation...I wonder how I could research that...but still...this was news to me, especially being a surgeon and all...

Stan inches forward on the Don Blake-Jane Foster-Thor triangle, and Odin ends a few issues again with his usual, "Oh that Thor, having the hots for some mere mortal...what am I to do?" spiel.

There are several "Tales of Asgard" which are interesting. Makes you kinda want to seek out the original texts...and Kirby gets to stretch out a bit more with his other-worldly vistas. Too bad they're hindered by weak inking...

Yet overall, another solid addition to the Marvel Masterworks library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent way to read those old comics. 5 Nov 2011
By D. King - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am one of those who never stopped loving comic books, and sadly don't think much of those still around.The older comics are hard to find and can be expensive for decent copies. These books can be a way to read and keep them without worrying about finding and preserving the originals. Unlike the Essential collections, these are presented in full color. this way , you can read them as often as you like without the problem of further wearing out a fragile original. For me , I always bought them to read rather than collecting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Representative from the Silver Age 5 May 2014
By Elvin Ortiz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Including 10 issues of Journey into Mystery, from February to November 1964, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby write and illustrate every one of these issues. Thor fights Mr. Hyde, the Cobra, the Gargoyle Man, Zarko, Magneto, and as usual, his evil brother Loki. At the same time, Lee complicates these stories with a subplot that ties every issue: Odin's opposition to Thor's love for the mortal Jane Foster, a love that he is unwilling to forsake even against his father's will. During these issues, Stan Lee matures as the plotter and writer of a solid superhero comic that goes beyond fighting bad guys. There are cameo appearances of his fellow Avengers, and there are more Tales of Asgard, which take the superhero saga into unexplored territory. In addition to this, you get to see Jack Kirby's unique artistic style developing into a new phase after the story of the Gargoyle. Marvel Masterworks are doing a great job at collecting these silver age comic book stories.
5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Thor 13 Feb 2014
By J. Melton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In this group of reprints of classic Journey into Mystery issues, the reader will see the Thor they know and love start to develop. Some of Thor's antagonists (most notably Crusher Creel, the Absorbing Man) make their first appearances. We also get to see the classic Thor/Hulk battle that set the stage for future conflicts between the two.

This is great Stan Lee/Jack Kirby action and adventure and highly recommended.
