“This is basically me doing a cop story, but with hammers instead of guns,” exclaims Thors author Jason Aaron to Marvel.com. “This is me getting to do ‘Homicide: Life on the Street’ with lots of cosmic cops. It’s every version of Thor you can imagine, all walking beats, solving murders, getting yelled at by their commissioner and blowing off steam at their local Thor-cop bar.”

Marvel is looking to expand Secret Wars even further (10+ series have already been announced) with a new comic entitled Thors. The tale features the incredible creative team of Jason Aaron and artist Chris Sprouse. Thors follows up on some crucial plot points that have yet to be revealed in Secret Wars #2, but the cover features various characters (the new Thor, Ultimate Thor, Beta Ray Bill, Frog Thor, and more) equipped with hammers. Little regarding the plot is known except that all these different characters are investigating a murder case for the ages.

The comic ships in June, and is cited to be one of the more important titles for Secret Wars.

“I’ll just say that this book is probably more of a direct tie-in to the main SECRET WARS series than a lot of the other tie-ins you’ll see, in that the role of the Thors is something that is set-up quite extensively in SECRET WARS #2,” says Aaron.


  1. The premise and choice of artist gives me a strong “America’s Best Comics”-era Alan Moore feel. Which is fine by me. This is the first Secret Wars spinoff that’s appealed to me. More like this, please.
