The Mighty Thor Makes An Electrifying Return!

 

When Marvel's mighty God of Thunder known as Thor disappeared while saving Asgard from Ragnarok, fans clamored for his return and this July their wish is granted in the brand new ongoing series Thor. Featuring scripts by award-winning scribe J. Michael Straczynski (Amazing Spider-Man) and rich, detailed art by superstar Olivier Coipel (House of M), this new ongoing series brings back Thor to the Marvel Universe-no clones, no robots, because this is the real deal!

 

What happened to Thor after Ragnarok? Who was the man that picked up the mighty hammer known as Mjolnir? And what about that little skirmish known as Civil War? The Marvel Universe isn't the same place Thor left and when he returns, he might not be the same either!

 

"Blake will be back, stronger and more of a real character than in the past, and Thor will begin the process of trying to locate and restore the rest of the Asgardians, with mixed results," revealed JMS. "And the throwdown between him and Iron Man will be huge."

 

It's the return of Dr. Donald Blake, the return of Thor and the return of…well, we can't give it all away, can we? Featuring covers by both Olivier Coipel and Michael Turner, this red-hot issue is the perfect jumping-on point for fans new & old. You know where Thor's been, but you'll never guess where he's going!

 

And did we mention that Arthur Suydam (Marvel Zombies) will be providing a special Zombie variant cover, available in stores July 25th?
