Sorry, Anon! I’ve been a bit too busy and only blogging from my phone to answer this, but here we go!
For Thor, you have to start with the classics. It’s where you see a good portion of his mythos and continuity developed (as well as Loki being a dick). I really recommend getting your hands on the Simonson Thor omnibus (Thormnibus?). Because it’s a giant book, your local library might have it, or if you’re friendly w/ any mega comic nerds, this should be a staple in their collection and you can borrow it. (I lucked out and grabbed mine awhile back from Thwipster when that was a thing for $65.) You can also just buy the first two Simonson trades as well, those are super fresh reprints and much cheaper (third volume is supposed to be rereleased in december maybe?).
Next up is Thor: The Mighty Avenger. This is the book you will see me banging on the walls of my jail cell, because the reason why we don’t have more than 8 issues and a FCBD issue is because of assholes that refuse to legally buy books and torrent them. $18 gets you the full collection and this is without a doubt my personal favorite Thor series. No prior reading is required. You can be a total noob and pick this book up and understand EVERYTHING. It’s removed from 616 canon, so it’s just easy to dive into. Ya boy Samnee is on art and it’s glorious. Also, I firmly believe this is Wilson’s best coloring. There’s a scene of Asgard and it’s the most luminous panel I’ve ever seen and it’s stuck with me over the years. This is the Mary Poppins of Thor comics: practically perfect in every way.
Some people like JMS’ Thor. I do not. If you want to see some amazing and hot as fuck art by Coipel, grab it.
Get Fraction’s The Mighty Thor. It’s a good modern read.
And Aaron’s new Thor is amazing. It’s very much removed from earth matters re: the first full arc, but it’s nonetheless engaging.#Thor #Comics Recommendations #Anon Asks #Anonymous
