9 YEARS AGO TODAY

Three covers and 23 interior pages of artwork by Marko Djurdjevic were released. 

       THOR #8 is a rare treat with its Djurdjevic cover and 23 pages of  interior artwork.

J. Michael Straczynski provides a script that shows the extemes that Djurdjevic can convincingly portray,

from a Odin/Thor/Surtur battle in a Hellish Realm,
to quiet moments in a hospital with a tragic cancer patient or a flashback to an important event in Loki's history. Sadly, only the pencils are by Djurdjevic though.
