Things haven’t been looking good for Jane Foster Thor, and now, we learn Odinson Thor is finally coming back in a new #1 in June. It’s all part of Marvel’s “Fresh Start,” but longtime Thor scribe Jason Aaron will write, while Mike Del Mundo will provide art.
The artifacts of Asgard have been scattered across the Earth, and to reclaim them, Thor will have to face some ugly truths…Like the production cost of hundreds of new hammers! And he’ll need every last one of them if he’s going to stop the unstoppable when none other than the Juggernaut joins the fray.
Aaron is excited about the new take. “On the one hand, I still feel like I’m writing the same Thor story that began six years ago in the pages of THOR GOD OF THUNDER #1. But at the same time, GOD OF THUNDER had a very different look and feel and focus than Jane Foster’s story,” he explains. “And even though Thor Odinson is now reclaiming his mantle, this new volume will also be going in a very different direction. Thor has a completely new status-quo. Actually the entire landscape of his corner of the Marvel Universe has been changed in the wake of the ‘Death of the Mighty Thor’ arc in MIGHTY THOR. But there’s still a War of the Realms raging, and Thor isn’t looking to stand on the sidelines.”
He’s also excited to work with Del Mundo again after their Weirdworld collab.”I loved the beautiful craziness he brought to the page when we did WEIRDWORLD together, and things are even wilder and more beautiful here. There just aren’t many artists in comics today whose work I love and admire more than Mike’s, so I feel incredibly fortunate to be launching this new direction for Thor with Mike by my side.”
Del Mundo is also excited we’re told. Maybe even super excited. “I’m super excited about this new journey! Working with Jason on WEIRDWORLD was so much fun and badassery and I’m getting that same excitedness and feels with this new THOR series—with added thunder!”
Will this bring joy and peace to the comic book world? let us know in the comments!
