ZOUNDS! THE EVEN MIGHTIER THOR...


Image copyright MARVEL COMICS

When The MIGHTY WORLD Of MARVEL #20 ran a
double-page ad for SPIDER-MAN COMICS WEEKLY #1, they
utilised the original cover proof of JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY
#83 for the 2nd page - with one difference.  THOR was 'beefed up'
a little in the arms and legs department, 'though his torso remained
untouched.  We've seen quite a bit of the original pic around here
recently, but I thought you could stand seeing it again from its
1973 outing.  (Who's gonna kick sand in his face, eh?)

(Actually, his left arm remained untouched, but 'arm
 and legs department' doesn't really sound quite right.)

As do I. PM. Scary, eh?

I wish I could have been in the room that chose which strip was going to appear in which mag. "Thor or Ant Man?" "Let's keep it to the one insect"

Hey, now there's an idea: 'Insect-Men Comics Weekly'! What a missed opportunity.

Kidda, you know what I'M like! You have now given me the desire to view ALL of the different connotations of this picture gathered together in one gallery!
( You are feeding my addictions! )

I'll leave that for a bit, JP - I'm verging on overkill already. One day down the line I'll put them all in a post.
