I'm glad to have jumped onto the Thor-bandwagon with last month's The Mighty Thor, the latest title chronicling the adventures of the God of Thunder by Matt Fraction and Olivier Coipel. The first issue seemed to drop new readers into the middle of the Thor universe, but I found the book to be accessible nonetheless. But it is Coipel's art that is as astounding as it has ever been.
Marvel released a preview of some of the pages from issue #3 and the artist is hitting it of the park with every page. From the cover with the iconic helmet of one of the Marvel U's most fearsome baddies to said villain slouching over, hungrily looking at the sustinence of the Milky Way (after the jump). This is some fine stuff for sure.
Official Press Release
Marvel is pleased to present your first look at THE MIGHTY THOR #3 from the creative team of Matt Fraction and Olivier Coipel. The threat of annihilation looms over the golden realm of Asgard and Thor is their only hope for survival. Galactus seeks the mysterious Galactus Seed, an ancient artifact that has the potential to crush the entire universe, and Odin holds it in his possession. This June, a deal stuck between the All-Father and the World Eater holds the fate of the entire world as we know it, only in THE MIGHTY THOR #3!
