THOR GOD OF THUNDER #13
- If Leafy is still hanging around,
he should love the heck out of this one
since one of his favorite villains,
as I seem to recall, is back.
More after our usual amiable
THE ACCURSED Part 1
and other nice folks.
This issue features the
return of one of Thor's
more vicious foes,
none other than Malekith,
the Dark Elf.
The story begins with
a spectacular MISSON IMPOSSIBLE-type
escape, from Hel, no less.
And once Malekith is on the loose,
he doesn't do what you'd expect.
After his last clash with the Odinson,
you'd think the first thing on
Malekith's to-do list would be to
lay a whomping on Thor.
Seems the elfin M is ticked off
at a bunch of 'softies'.
Who might they be? you ask.
I don't want to give it away,
but it's a delightful twist that showcases
just how demented Malekith is---and makes
for a great first installment in this arc.
Once again Aaron is pitch-perfect with
his characterizations, and Garney outdoes
himself with his renderings.
On the Mjolnir Meter this pegged at a 10.
If you love Thor and you're not reading this title,
you are depriving yourself of some serious sweetness.
- And I loved the classic movie Western reference on the letters-less letters page. Another issue that made me say Lee/Kirby who? And you forgot to mention the great map of the nine realms!

> And I loved the classic movie Western reference on the letters-less lettersBoth the movie and this were Biblical references
to the Book of Revelation, alluding to the End Times.
In Clint's movie, he was about to bring
an end to the bad guys. In Malekith's case,
we know what he's trying to bring an end to.
>>> Another issue that made me say Lee/Kirby who?Don't know if anyone could make me say that.
Not even JMS and Coipel.
Lee and Kirby at their peak were sensational.

Maps of Asgard and the like?
