Komicskast - #90 - THOR -  Journey Into Mystery 83 - 88

Join Mr. Lyle Tucker, Van Reid, and myself Bruce Rosenberger, as we re-examine the first six Thor stories from Journey Into Mystery issues 83 through 88. After we provide a synopsis for each story, we examine the stories and art, and we try to track the genesis of a great character while also putting the stories into Marvel's Historical Perspective.

We're just three guys who first discovered Thor over 40 years ago, but we hope that you'll join us for the first of what we hope will be many, episodes as we try to define what makes this great character great.

(BTW- if you've got a copy of the first Thor Marvel Masterworks, the first Thor Essentials, or a subscription to the new Marvel Comics Digital Comics site, it might be helpful to have the book or website on hand as we do occasionally reference panels and pages in various stories.)
