Nostalgically revisiting the comics of the 1980s since 2008.
Simonson's "Thor" run still surprises me: whenever I look back at it, it actually seems even better than the last time I did so. Great choice of pages.
I might be wrong, but I think this issue was actually #343. I recall picking up that specific back issue, when I was still collecting this run retroactively, and really being blown away by this funeral scene.Simonson's run feels like the only run of a comic book that I read retroactively (didn't read the whole thing until the 2000s) that feels as thrilling as if I was reading it as a kid back in the 80s. Thanks for the post!
Hey David, nice catch, you are correct! The story started with #341 and climaxed in #343.
