Item DescriptionStan Lee and Jack Kirby's famous creation of THOR first took place in 43 issues of JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY before the God of Thunder got his own title in THOR #126. Here is the Asgardian's 2nd appearance, in JOUTNEY INTO MYSTERY #84
In "The Mighty THOR vs. The Executioner!", Dr. Donald Blake is in Europe, and a revolution starts in San Diablo between a Communist faction and a democratic faction. Because of the fighting, there is a shortage of medical help in San Diablo, and several American doctors, including Dr. Blake (with his trusty sidekick and crush, nurse Jane Foster), agree to go there to help. However, the evil Executioner, leader of the Communist faction, does not want the peasants to be treated. He wants them to remain ill so that they will be too weak to oppose the Communists. He sends five fighter planes to blow up the ship carrying the doctors but Blake turns into THOR and destroys the planes, which prompts the Executioner to send his armed forces to hunt down and kill the doctors.
THOR fights off all attackers, but the soldiers capture Jane Foster, forcing Thor to stop his attack. The Communists fawn over Jane, until Dr. Blake arrives, demanding her release. Angered over Blake's commands, The Executioner steals his walking stick and orders Blake in front of the firing squad. . . But we know THOR will prevail , and even wind up treating and curing all the sick peasants!
Jane, however, wishes Dr. Blake could be as handsome and brave as the super-hero with the flowing locks and tight pants!
Great art by Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers.
You also get the text story "The Recipe", and the 5-page story "The Witching Hour" with art by Don Heck!
This is a well-presderved and enjoyed nearly 60-year old comic, with normal toning but no foxing, and only minimal stress lines and a bit of minor cover rippling. Nothing that will affect your enjoyment of reading this very early THOR adventure! We feel confident in grading this a 6.5 FN+ for this issue. It's more than just a great 'reading' copy like the other, higher-priced, JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY copies here on HipComic!
Overstreet feels $1250.00 is appropriate, for this issue in this condition - but we feel $1100 plus FREE shipping is even MORE appropriate!
