29 YEARS AGO TODAY

Your visit to your local comic shop would reward you with a Thor comic that was reminiscent of the Lee/Kirby THORs of the late Sixties.
There was a double page spread and 4 full page panels.
And no new characters were introduced.

27 YEARS AGO TODAY

If Marvel hadn't of run out of room on the cover they might have mentioned that Heimdall rebuilds the Rainbow Bridge (with the the help of the Royal Scepter). He's filling in for old man Odin, who felt the need of a nap.
Ron Frenz and Joe Sinnott channel their inner Kirby with this dynamic full-pager that delivers one of the cover's promises.
Unfortunately the cover doesn't warn potential buyers that their is non-Thor 5 page back-up story "Tales of the Earth Force"

Even though it was only the fourth Marvel Thor story it was not the best one so far. That would be JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY #85 with the first Loki story and the first appearance of Asgard.
