Every Wednesday I pick my favorite cover from all the comic books that came out during the week…today’s pick goes to Thor: First Thunder #5 by Jay Anacleto and Brian Haberlin.
Wow. If anyone ever asks you who Thor is and what he’s all about save yourself some time and just direct them to this cover. This embodies just about everything that’s great about Thor – the fantasy elements, the big ol’ hammer, Loki covering in the corner, and Thor’s pure power. I didn’t even notice that Thor’s ‘heroic pose’ at first because with everything else going on this feels much more like an action panel than a cover. This art deserves to be both hung in a gallery and painted on the side of a hippy van.
