avengers swordsman funeral -001

We previously shared a splash panel and a Doc Ock value stamp from this issue. But, Avengers #130 has a couple other interesting pages worth salvaging from the beat up copy we found. At the Swordsman’s funeral, Thor — a Norse god — eulogizes his departed comrade with words from Paul’s letter to the church in Corinth. A few pages later, Hawkeye gives an honest reaction to the origin of Mantis. It’s more than a little like Miracleman’s wife’s reaction to his “bloody stupid” origin.

Collector’s Guide: From Avengers #130. Reprinted in Essential Avengers TPB #6 (but not with the value stamp!).
