“Odin was a drunken old sot, occasionally wandering off to get into fights. I had 30 years of anger and frustration towards Odin for his sanctimonious and racist treatment of Thor and Loki. I wasn’t going to hold back.” - Bill Messner-Loebs (OaklandPress.com, 11/9/13)


THOR #495, the first issue written by Bill Messner-Loebs, is a double treat thanks to the impressive full art by Geoff Isherwood. The coloring is an example of what could be done with a computer in 1995. 
Plus, for those of us that like good-looking women, Amora appears on 12 of the 21 pages.
