The Debut of Thorshach in Next Week’s Thor #8

In next week’s Thor #8, the god of thunder finds himself (and Valkyrie) a prisoner of the warriors of Heven. But Thor believes that they’ve got it all wrong…

Of course, Thor is referencing a famous scene from Watchmen, the seminal work of Dave Gibbons and Alan Moore (not to be confused with Moore’s fish-semenal work, Neonomicon).

Of course, Rorschach did eventually get out of that prison… though things didn’t work out great for him in the end. In the comic, he was vaporized by Doctor Manhattan. The movie changed some stuff about the ending, and it’s been a while since we’ve seen it, so we’re gonna say he was… crushed by a giant blue dong? That’s probably it.

In any case, Thor has a super-mega-crossover event coming up in War of the Realms. Can we take the debut of Thorschach to be a foreshadowing of his fate? Or just a clever reference worth a clickbait headline?

Thor #8 hits stores next Wednesday.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
