THOR BY WALTER SIMONSON VOL. 3 TPB
Written by WALTER SIMONSON

Few people have ever left their mark on one character quite the way Walter Simonson has.

From the majesty and mystery of fabled Asgard to the gritty streets of New York City, Thor was never the same. That is the mark of a true visionary. This third volume continues the collection of Simonson’s epic run — completely remastered from the original artwork and newly colored by Steve Oliffe! Collecting THOR (1966) #357-363 and BALDER THE BRAVE #1-4.
