Thanks NY DAILY NEWS. I was wondering what Daneille Ward thought about Thor's costume...

"We'll see if (this new Thor) is a feminist breakthrough or not depending on how much clothing she's wearing," said Danielle Ward, manager of Jim Hanley's Universe comic store on Staten Island. 
The cover to the 1 in 25 variant cover for THOR #1, which will go on sale October 1, was used in the July 16th NY DAILY NEWS article. Unlike article-writer Ethan Sacks I WILL credit Esad Ribic

A Kirby page not worth reprinting?

Good enough for THOR #148 (1968) but not good enough for the reprint of the story in MARVEL SPECTACULAR #19 (1975).
