1 YEAR AGO TODAY IT WAS THE 6th CONSECUTIVE NEW COMIC DAY WITH NO NEW THOR ODINSON APPEARANCES

There was $20 worth of new Lady Thor appearances available for those that were willing to settle...

CIVIL WAR II #5 $4.99 (W) Brian Michael Bendis (A) David Marquez (CA) Marko Djurdjevic
    The truth about Ulysses' future-seeing power is revealed and it is a game changer. Sides are irrevocably drawn and the gauntlet is thrown for the biggest battle in Marvel Universe history. Lady Thor appears throughout the entire issue (even though she doesn't appear on any of the covers)!

GUARDIANS OF GALAXY #12 $3.99
(W) Brian Michael Bendis (A) Valerio Schiti (CA) Arthur Adams
   The Guardians' allegiances are split right down the middle, and tensions have NEVER been higher!  Lady Thor makes a silent one-panel crowd-scene cameo.

MIGHTY THOR #11 $3.99
(W) Jason Aaron (A/CA) Russell Dauterman

   Lady Thor's crusade against the corporate overlords of Midgard reaches its climax--and the lives of all New Yorkers hang in the balance. The Goddess of Thunder and S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Roz Solomon make their final stand against the Exterminatrix and the Silver Samurai. And Roz and Thor get help from the most unexpected source.

VISION #11 $3.99
(W) Tom King (A) Gabriel Hernandez Walta (CA) Mike Del Mundo
  The Avengers draw a line in the sand. They tell Vision he is not to cross this line. If he does, they will destroy him. "Remember," they say. "You're an Avenger. First. Always." "Stay where you are," they say. "Don't cross the line," they say. Then Vision crosses the line. Lady Thor briefly battles the Vision.

VOTE LOKI #4 $3.99 (LOPEZ VAR)
(W) Christopher Hastings (A) Langdon Foss (CA) Tradd Moore
   Election Day is upon us and Loki-mania has reached its height! The American people have spoken and THEY WANT LOKI.  But Nisa's not buying it. She had a bad feeling about Loki from the get go and she's finally got proof that he's up to no good. Too bad no one will listen. Lady Thor makes  a two page cameo.

48 YEARS AGO TODAY

 After a talking-to-himself synopsis Thor spends the rest of THOR #170 engaged in battle with a giant robot that Lee/Kirby created in the previous issue. The Warriors Three assist him. 
Plus there is a 2 page sequence "many worlds away" featuring Karnilla and Loki having a non-violent spat. THOR #170 is one of those rare issues that doesn't introduce any new characters.
