the five previous issues combined!

One of the six panels on the last page was not by Kirby and Ayers.  To find out which panel it is and who drew it go to:

How much could Lee/Kirby squeeze into 4 panels?

We get a glimpse of the Valhalla ceremonial chamber, Loki being Loki, Balder in a suit and a variation on traveling from Asgard to Midgard - for when the Rainbow Bridge is just too slow!
Plus Thor. Jane Foster. And the Enchantress!

Would this get your vote for one of the best THOR covers and if not could you please name the 10 that are better? (They'd make a great post.)

Glen Orbik learned his craft from the legendary movie poster artist, Fred Fixler. Not only has he done comic covers (for Marvel AND DC) he has done movie posters and book covers (including covers for Stephen King and Ray Bradbury) He also shares his gift with others through teaching.

Thor appears in one panel of AVENGERS #22 to explain that he is too busy to be in the issue.
