King Thor #2 is in stores next week, continuing the final chapter of Jason Aaron’s lame-duck Thor run, with Esad Ribic, Ive Svorcina, and Joe Sabino. We’ve got a preview below.
If you thought things started out bad with Loki the All-Butcher looking to destroy Thor and all life in the already-dying universe, by the end of the first issue, matters were even worse with the return of Gorr, now the God of God Butchers.
Now it’s time for Gorr to provide a little exposition.
And Gorr knows who to blame for having his peaceful rest interrupted: Loki.
But Loki has an offer for Gorr. One Gorr will accept.
But Thor, it seems, is tired of this monologue.
And besides, he’s only 2 issues away from a relaunch. It’s time to get this over with. King Thor #2 is in stores on Wednesday.
KING THOR #2 (OF 4)
(W) Jason Aaron (A/CA) Esad Ribic
IT’S THE BATTLE FORETOLD FOR CENTURIES:
THOR VS. LOKI IN THE FINAL FIGHT OF THE MILLENNIA!
The universe is dying, and All-Father Thor is its only hope. But to save all life, the greatest god in history must defeat the one person who has always managed to escape his wrath – and that was before he got his hands on the weapon that almost killed three generations of Thor and stripped the God of Thunder of his legendary hammer. Loki, God of Lies, wielder of All-Black the Necrosword, finally faces his brother at the end of all time!
