Wednesday is upon us, and your journey is about to begin. Like the fabled Holy Grail, a shiny new batch of comic books await your discovery…but unfortunately, you cannot purchase them all.
Will you choose wisely – as Indiana Jones did in the Last Crusade – escaping with the coveted treasure, or will you choose poorly, causing the flesh to explode from your bones, leaving nothing but your ash-covered, skeletal remains?
Fear not, noble adventurer – I’m here to help. Here are some of the best comics of the week, and why you should read, bag and board them.
The previous epic story from Thor: God of Thunder was one of the surprise hits of the Marvel Universe. The two story arcs were The God Butcher and The God Bomb and these two runs are must-reads for both Thor fans and fans of fantasy storytelling. That story has ended and the next story arc from the creative team of writer Jason Aaron and artist Ron Garney promises to be even more fantastical with many of the tropes of traditional fantasy stories, including dragons coming more into play. The new story, which just began in issue #13 titled the Accursed, promises the return of one of Thor’s most powerful enemies, Malekith!
We have for your perusal from Marvel some early images from the forthcoming Thor God of Thunder #14! Check out the preview here below.
With each new big Marvel movie, there is a game based on that movie, and it looks like the Marvel’s Thor will be no different. The video game Thor: God of Thunder will be released on May 3, 2010 Now both of the games based on the Iron Man movies looked great, but they played terribly. Looking at this trailer, the Thor game does not seem to follow that pattern. The look of the game is not great, though.
Take a look at the trailer below, which debuted this weekend at Spike TV’s Video Game Awards. Or even look at the picture above, graphically it looks a generation behind. The game appears to be a hack and slash type game, which could really draw Thor fans in. Who wouldn’t want to beat the crap out of things with Thor’s hammer? Even if you don’t look great while doing it.
