We posted these pages in serialized form in the early days of this blog, but that’s proven inconvenient for people searching for this entire epic.

Super Villain Classics #1 (1983) compiled pages from even older Thor comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Some supplemental art and dialogue was added to streamline the story into one coherent narrative. Are you interested in those original Thor issues?
