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


So Stan and Jack's wasn't good? Or Stan and John Buscema's? Nothing in all those Masterworks is good? I wonder if most Simonson fans feel that way. Maybe they do.

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

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


Oh man. I wonder if we'll see the goat chariot in any of the movies.

    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.


It looks like an acid trip to me. I guess maybe it's supposed to. It reminds me a little of Craig Russel's art, which I also dislike. I wonder if Craig Russell would have been popular on Thor.


    Quote:
    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.


Yeah, I was more interested in the Marvel aspect too. And I've read the Norse myths. I would have liked to see the Norse myths illustrated by John Buscema or Barry Windsor-Smith or Joe Kubert.

    Walt's the one good Thor run.


God, I loved so much of Thor. Hundreds of issues of awesome stories.
