Getting into comics can be difficult without knowing where to start, so I’ve compiled a list of accessible storylines for those of you interested in learning more about Thor.
Thor Visionaries Vol. 1 by Walter Simonson
Few people have ever left their mark on one character quite the way Walter Simonson has. His work on the Mighty Thor swept the Norse God of Thunder to heights never before seen and rarely achieved in his wake. Spanning epic tales of heroism and treachery, love and war, Simonson’s work is often considered the definitive Thor. From the majesty and mystery of fabled Asgard to the gritty streets of New York City, Thor was never the same.
Thor: Tales of Asgard by Stan Lee
Two of comics’ immortal talents — the legendary Stan Lee and Jack Kirby — tell the tales of that most hallowed pantheon of gods: Asgard! Experience the seminal tales of Norse godhood: the origins of the Ice and Storm Giants, the diabolical Surtur, and the noble Heimdall; and the very creation of Asgard itself! Plus: delve into the boyhood of Thor, when his relationship with wicked stepbrother Loki was not yet fully formed! Throw in the earliest tales of Thor’s loyal Warriors Three — Fandral, Hogun and Volstagg — and TALES OF ASGARD proves to be one of the most fun and fast-paced curios from Marvel’s glorious Silver Age!
Thor: The Mighty Avenger by Roger Langridge
He’s banished, he’s mad and he’s ready to fight! Join the Odinson as he battles robots the size of cities! He’ll tame the mightiest sea creatures and rescue damsels from distress! It’s Thor as you’ve never seen him, hammering his way into your hands!
Avengers Disassembled: Thor by Michael Avon Oeming
The End Times are here! Ragnarok appears to have come for the gods of Asgard, and only Thor and his Avengers allies might be able to stave off that fate – but will the Thunder God be Asgard’s savior, or the architect of its downfall? In search of new wisdom, Thor must repeat the ordeals of Odin – and the price may be too terrible for even an immortal to pay! Beset on all sides by treacherous foes from his past, the God of Thunder leads the tattered remnants of the forces of Asgard on a desperate quest, as the Realm Eternal burns.
Thor by J. Michael Straczynski
Not a clone! Not a robot! Not an imaginary story! The God of Thunder is officially BACK! The Odinson comes roaring back to life but how does a god return from Ragnarok?
Thor: Ages of Thunder by Matt Fraction
Matt Fraction and Patrick Zircher as they examine the triumphs and tragedies that have befallen the God of Thunder across the eons. As all the things he holds dearest are threatened by unimaginable forces of evil, Thor must rise up, again and again, to hold the line against terror and chaos as only the God of Thunder can!
