91 YEARS AGO TODAY

Happy birthday to someone who is more than a Kirby embellisher - master craftsman Joe Sinnott. 
Not only did he collaborate with Kirby on the first two JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY Thor covers he also did the full art for the 13 page Thor stories in JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY #91, 92, 94, 95 and 96.
Like Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers, Joe Sinnott is another hero that depicted heroes (All three defended America in World War II.)

IN THE SHOPS 3 YEARS AGO TODAY

AVENGERS AND X-MEN AXIS #2 $3.99 (ASRAR YOUNG GUNS VAR) (INVERSION VAR)
(W) Rick Remender (A) Adam Kubert (CA) Jim Cheung
   The heroes of the Marvel Universe storm the beaches of Red Skull's Genoshian Reeducation camps. What they discover within will lead to a bleak new era. The revelation of Tony Stark's dark secret promises to shatter the fragile alliance between A and X.  Nova's attempt at solving the crisis leads to disaster. Magneto betrays his alliance to join an army of evil. Despite Thor being mentioned as a cast member he only appears in Tony Stark's dreams.

AVENGERS WORLD #14 $3.99
(W) Nick Spencer (A) Marco Checchetto (CA) Jorge Molina
   The UPRISING is over; now the NEW ORDER begins!  Avengers World has become A.I.M. World.  The Avengers can't stop the combined might of A.I.M., The Gorgon and Morgan Le Fey. But what about the NEXT Avengers? Thor is part of the large cast.

DEADPOOL'S ART OF WAR #1 $3.99 (BURNHAM VAR)
(W) Peter David (A/CA) Scott Koblish
    Sun Tzu's Art of War has been called the definitive work on military strategy and tactics and has influenced leaders in both warfare and business for hundreds of years...which means it's totally in the public domain and ripe for being ripped off by Deadpool! And what's Deadpool's plan to ensure his version of Art of War outsells the original? Make sure the entire world is at war when it comes out! Plenty of Asgardian yuks and a Thor appearance.
