Thor, Vol. 1 - J. Michael Straczynski, Olivier Coipel I'm a DC fan of long, long standing. From back in the day of the .12 comic. I have never read Marvel comics for a few reasons, some of them very silly, but my guy at the comics store recommended this series to me after we did some talking about the movie. Now see... this has meat in it, the way the movie doesn't. There's actually motive developing and a reason for Thor to be doing the things he's doing. The art is pretty - alive and moving and I like the look of the book very much. I have no idea, really, of the history of all these Asgardians, but it didn't really impact my enjoyment of the book that much. Good thing I picked up Vol. 2 today. :)
