Marvel Treasury Edition #10

My favorite Silver Age Marvel book was always Thor. The cosmic grandeur and scope of Jack "King" Kirby's art always blew my 12 year old mind. This great art still blows my mind over 20 years years later. If you thought it was great in the standard comic book format, wait 'til you see it in treasury size. Wow!! This great book from 1976 reprints four classic issues of the Thunder God's exploits from 1968. "To Wake The Mangog" from Thor #154, "Now Ends The Universe" from Thor #155, "The Hammer And The Holocaust" from Thor #156, and "Behind Him...Ragnarok" from Thor #157. All stories by Stan "The Man" Lee and Jack "King" Kirby with inking by Vince Coletta. It doesn't get much better than that. Maybe if Joe Sinnott inked it, but I digress.

I loved reading treasury comics as a kid. They were almost as big as you were and it really put you in the action.
