By the 10s: The Mighty Thor, Part 3!

Let's get the Thunder God finished, shall we?

An awesome Gil Kane cover here on Thor #210!

Kane again doing the cover duties on #220!

If I'm not mistaken, that's John Buscema on the cover (probably interiors, too) of #230!

Thor #240, another Kane cover! Hmm, was this about the time Roy Thomas was writing the book? He did some great stuff with Buscema.

Thor #250 features a great Kirby cover, but sadly all he was doing was the cover art...

Thor #260, probably Buscema again! You've likely noticed that the logo has remained completely unchanged, somewhat of a rarity for Bronze Age Marvel (I think Incredible Hulk and Amazing Spider-Man were the only other books that began in the Bronze Age that didn't see a logo change in the 70s).

Thor #270!

Thor #280, I think that's a George Perez cover. Didn't Mike Sekowsky do an issue or two of a Marvel title that featured Hyperion? Or am I thinking of Wayne Boring. Probably Boring.

Thor #290, and you know the Thunder God's book is in trouble when he's battling Mexican wrestlers!

And Thor #300 wraps this title up! Of course, Thor would return to glory days again when Walt Simonson showed up to write and draw the title!

Next time: X-Men!

  1. Take another look at the #330 cover. Under the snake is a Buckler/Sinnott signature, although my first thought was also Buscema.
