Seen above is the very first issue of Marvel's THOR comic from the beginning of '66. To be fair, the series had been running for about four years already but the book it had started in was entitled JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY. By '66, mystery had been replaced by majesty and Jack Kirby's rampant imagination was allowed to go crazy with Gods and aliens and monsters.


  1. I was wondering if you were ever going to get around to THOR's contribution to the 1966 zeitgeist.

  2. That's got to be the greatest run of Thor covers I have seen in many a year. What a great year it was! The Hercules 6 part arc is a high point! IMHO, the great run of Thor starts in JIM #112 with the Hulk, and then runs to #140! What a run!
