    I actually dropped Thor when he took over. I don't like his art nor his stories. What's the appeal?


Wow. I think Thor's only had one good run...and that was it.

Not liking his run is like preferring the Supremes after Diana Ross left or liking Lynyrd Skynyrd better after the plane crash.

    I know people liked seeing ancient mythic elements like the goat-chariot. I didn't. Goats are silly. I think people liked his costume designs, which I did too. I think his stories were more magical and less scientific, right? Was this a draw?


I liked seeing ancient mythic elements...like the goat chariot. Goats are f*cking awesome. Mythical goats more so.

I'm not a big fan of Simonson art...like I didn't like it on Fantastic Four. But for Thor it really worked IMO.

Walt seemed like the one Thor writer who was knowledgeable on norse mythology which made his run a delight. Other Thor writers seemed more interested in the Marvel aspect of Thor and not the mythological aspect.

Walt's the one good Thor run.
