Non-Marvel Thor Friday

Plenty of differences between this Thor and the Marvel one. The one I found the most interesting was that thunderstorms trigger the mortal-to-Thor transformation. This comic is from 1959 and the cover is the work of Curt Swan and Stan Kaye.

No new Thor appearances tomorrow!

   If you DO go to your Local Shop tomorrow and flip through the new books don't be fooled by A+X #17. The Thor in that issue is a Skrull.
   This ad that appears in tomorrow's Marvels may interest you though.

HOW CAN YOU TELL IF AN ARTIST IS A FAN FAVORITE?

One clue would be that Marvel hires them to do variant covers.

Daniel Acuna did 1 in 50 variant covers for the first two issues of THOR GOD OF THUNDER.
