29 YEARS AGO TODAY

If you had been a Marvel Zombie for more than 3 years you probably would have figured out who the mystery villain was on this Ron Frenz/Joe Sinnott cover.
Inside Tom DeFalco provides the reason why this villain makes their first THOR appearance in a 17 page story drawn by Frenz/Sinnott.
Plus there was also the first chapter of a well-drawn Tales of Asgard trilogy.

THOR GOD OF THUNDER #19 $3.99 (Bianchi variant cover) (Mann variant cover) (Parks animal variant cover)
(W) Jason Aaron (A/CA) Esad Ribic
   Thor has always fought to save his adopted home of Earth. But who can he fight when the planet itself is dying? Thor's mortal ally and environmental secret agent Roz Solomon has a few ideas. Namely the world's largest and most nefarious energy company Roxxon, and its ruthless new CEO known as "The Minotaur." Has the God of Thunder finally met his match, in the form of a multinational super-corporation? Meanwhile, many millennia ahead, a future version of Thor faces a very different battle to save what remains of the earth--a battle against Galactus, the Devourer of Worlds!
