5.0 out of 5 stars Thor - The Superb Avenger, 8 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thor the Mighty Avenger Vol. 1 (Paperback)
First four issues of the 'Thor - The Mighty Avenger' along with two very early tales from JIM. A beautiful story and lovely art. Jane Foster has never been more lovely; Mr Hyde is truly gruesome; the Wasp and Giant / Ant-Man wonderful; Thor is as you would imagine him to be (but never was in the early JIM tales by Kirby, Al Hartley etc) after suddenly coming across a hammer, this time in an Urn, and not in a cavern over in Scandinavia - not a hint of Don Blake. For me, a bit like reading Blue (Spider-Man) / Yellow (Daredevil) etc - totally magical. If only comics could be more like this, instead of endless cross-overs / brutal combat / dark and gloomy battles for the sake of the Universe or alternate dimensions or all time etc / epics / confusing continuity and a degree required to remember all the endless twists and turns of the comic universe --- just a great story, friendships, love, humanity ...

This was listed in various reviews as one of the most underrated series of 2010, it certainly is.. I don't even recall seeing this in my favourite comic shop, so it definitely disappeared under the radar for me.

Only minor thing - as of this point, a little bit confused by the title as I was expecting the book to be more 'Avengers' in the book (Wasp etc appear but that is it) - surely the title 'Thor and Jane - a romance' ??
