But will it all be for naught as the clock ticks down and the massive Godbomb is triggered at last? And after the dust clears, what will be left of the universe’s divinity?

THOR BY WALTER SIMONSON VOL. 2 TPB
Written by WALTER SIMONSON
Penciled by WALTER SIMONSON & SAL BUSCEMA
Cover by WALTER SIMONSON
Few people have ever left their mark on one character quite the way Walter Simonson has. His work on the Mighty Thor swept the Norse God of Thunder to heights never before seen and rarely achieved in his wake. Spanning epic tales of heroism and treachery, love and war, Simonson’s work is often considered the definitive Thor. From the majesty and mystery of fabled Asgard to the gritty streets of New York City, Thor was never the same. That is the mark of a true visionary. This second volume continues the collection of Simonson’s epic run — completely remastered from the original artwork and newly colored by Steve Oliffe. Collecting THOR (1966) #346-355.
