The year-end issue of Marvel’s Thor is set to bring the thunderer to a place he’s never been; past the boundaries of Hel, on a search for his sister.
Thanos isn’t all that great of a guy, I think most people can agree on that, and this time the villain is back with an especially diabolical plan. December’s Thor #29 sees Thanos take aim at both Thor and his young sister.
Called “The Legacy of Thanos”, the new arc that kicks off in the book will introduce some interesting new developments to Marvel’s cosmic mythos. Namely, a link between the Mad Titan and Asgard in the distant past.
When a universally loathed foe kidnaps Thor’s baby sister Laussa and drags her so deep beyond Hel that not even Sif’s All-Sight can see her, the God of Thunder must call upon the one ally who has traveled so far into the unknown before: Rúna. But what dark secrets of Asgard’s bloody past lay beneath the frozen waters?
“There is something incredibly inventive and bold about Donny and Nic’s Thor, and it’s been an absolute delight to guest-write a story for this run,” Grønbekk said. “It’s turning out to be just the kind of thing I love – big swings, solid character moments and deeply human solutions. Also, Nic is impossibly good. There is a special kind of joy to see his pages come together. I don’t think I’ve ever had this much fun making comics!”Marvel Comics press release
From Torunn Grønbekk, and with art and cover illustration by Nic Klein, the quest into past Hel itself begins in Thor #29. Look for in stores this December 7th.
