The God of Thunder is making his presence known in a big way leading up to the new Thor film, and Marvel is introducing his history to a new generation of readers with Thor: First Thunder from Bryan J.L. Glass (The Mice Templar) and artist Tan Eng Huat (Ghost Rider).
This new interpretation of Thor’s origin pays homage to the stories of the 1960s as it reexamines Thor’s human alter-ego of Dr. Donald Blake, and the events that lead to his discovering his true identity. We talked with Glass, with editor Bill Rosemann occasionally popping in, about what to expect from this new miniseries, and found one thing is clear – this writer loves the Thunder God.
