JR JR used to draw a very massive figure, but has dialed it down a few notches. I noticed the same thing for the preview art for the new series artist, Pasquel Ferry and for the new all ages series, THOR: THE MIGHTY AVENGER.

We've seen him write the harsh non-human half Thor in AGES OF THUNDER, we've seen the classic in THOR GOD SIZED special, and a little of the modern in THOR: SECRET INVASION, all by Mr. Fraction.
