Thor Movie Review

Thor Movie Review

By Vince

Due to circumstances beyond my control, I had to wait several days to see Thor; several long, agonizing days. I’ll keep this review short since I’ll be the 5,682,744th person to review the movie online. Yes, I’m a total Thor fanboy; I’ve never tried to hide that. That said, I’m going to at least attempt to be objective. As a film, Thor is decent. As far as summer bloc... Read More »

Journey into Mystery Issue 622

By Vince

Anybody who listened to our first podcast back after hiatus knows that I’m a longtime fan of Thor and that my co-host most definitely is not. It’s not unusual for two people to wildly disagree on something, but there is an important distinction to be made. There’s a difference between “bad” and “not into it.” When something truly and irredeemably BAD comes... Read More »

Comic of the Week (4/6/11) – Fear Itself #1

Comic of the Week (4/6/11) – Fear Itself #1

By Vince

Fear Itself #1 is the first issue of Marvel’s next big event. In an attempt to bring the stories of Thor and Captain America together before their movies this summer, Sin, the Red Skull’s daughter, has gained an Asgardian hammer of her own. Much like Thor’s Mjolnir, the hammer grants her the powers of a god. Meanwhile, Thor and his father come to blows while an undercurrent of fe... Read More »

Comic of the Week (2/4/11) – Grab Bag #1

By Vince

This week, it was difficult to pick a single comic of the week. Several good comics, but nothing GREAT. So, I’ve selected a “Grab Bag” of three really good ones this week: Invincible Iron Man #500.1 by Matt Fraction and Salvador LaRocca, Secret Six #30 by Gail Simone and Jim Calafiore and Ultimate Thor #4 by Jonathan Hickman and Carlos Pacheco.

Thor Issue 617

Thor Issue 617

By Vince

I’m sick of this damn scientist. I put up with him in Issue 615, got sick of him in Issue 616, and now I just hope he’s the first person killed when the World Eaters attack. This time, after failing with Volstagg, Thor and Balder, Dr. Solvang pleads his case to Iron Man. At least Iron Man is able to get through to Balder, who finally explains why the Asgardians don’t seem to care. Since Matt Fract... Read More »

Thor Issue 616

Thor Issue 616

By Vince

What is where Asgard should be? Well, we’re no closer to answering that question now than we were last issue, but things are slowly moving in the right direction. This issue is divided up into three separate stories. First is a small interlude back to Broxton, Oklahoma, where the local women are trying to cheer the goddess Kelda up after the death of her mortal love, Bill. Unlike some, I don’t min... Read More »

Thor Issue 615

Thor Issue 615

By Vince

Thor has long been one of my favorite heroes. His sheer power backed by his sense of honor and duty have told some very entertaining stories over the years. The juxtaposition of ancient myth with the modern world gives the writers a tremendous amount of possibilities. When Thor was relaunched in 2007, J. Michael Straczynski chose to focus mostly on the myth, establishing Thor as the new Lord of As... Read More »
