    SPOILERS!!!














    Okies...well, in light of the thor developments in civil war with him being a clone and not the real Thor, it really gives a blank slate for how Thor is done. This can easily ruin things and make a whole clone saga ordeal with JMS and Thor, which I wouldn't like..but JMS might be able to handle this correctly, and he's the only one I would trust to. What do you guys think?

    Some good/bad gossip depending on your perspective though is that JMS is going to be dropping "Thor-speak" which has developed over a long time now. Which means Thor's not going to be speaking in terms like "Ye shalt not defile me ye bloody swine!" stuff. I like that, because I think that style of English is hard to read, and Stan Lee didn't write Thor like that. And it's also good that JMS is bringing back Thor's alter ego, which adds more of a dynamic to the character.
    I say to thee, nay!

    OK, so I think it's a good idea to drop it as well, but I have to admit, it had a certain charm.

    Yeah, I read that in the interview on Newsarama. Now I need to get up to speed on Thor's history.

    That's not good news. I had JMS writing my two favorite books since childhood (spidey and FF) and now it sounds like he might drop FF for Thor. Though I agree that he's good with mythological characters, it's undeniable that his strongest suit is sci-fi, which the FF have more of an option to offer. If he ends up dropping FF I'll be disappointed.

    JMS just posted on the newsgroup re: Thor:

    On the comics front, incidentally...it was just announced by Marvel
    that I'm going to be taking over and re-launching the Thor monthly
    title. Because this is a big mythological show, it's very much in my
    wheelhouse, as it were, and it's really important to make this work.
    So I'm giving some thought to pulling back on some of the other comics
    work, notably FF, to make room to give this my full attention.

    Ah well, thanks for that Radhil.

    To echo SmileoftheShadow's comments, most of the Marvel writers and artists post on the comicboards, or at least they do after they get told about it.

    Michael Avon Oeming, Andrea Di Vito and Walt Simonson are semi-regulars and more often than not will reply to posts with their names in the thread title.

    Hopefully someone will get a word to JMS and he might show up eventually. No hurry at this stage. People would probably just going to be hounding him for snippets of info or wishing him well on the book. Whereas after his run starts, he can talk about what he has done rather than what he will do, if you get my meaning.

    And on that note...and pertaining to the post above this one, the comicboards.com site is pretty good for those of you who are really into comics like myself. A lot of creators actually do post there, so it's good informative as well. Hard to find a comics site where people aren't ripped to shreds these days

    Hey JMS! If you get the chance...

    Hello JMS!

    Just wanted to say congratulations on getting the Thor gig, I'm really looking forward to your run on the comic.

    I know you must be horribly busy, but if you get a spare moment consider yourself invited to the Thor comicboards.

    http://www.comicboards.com/thor/

    I am sure people would be encouraged to hear from you, even if its just a hello at this stage (I know you can't and wouldn't want to reveal too much at this juncture).

    Anyway, best wishes for Thor and everything else.

    Yours sincerely, Craig Cochrane

    Same price when I was reading them, Joe. Trouble was, there wasn't much selection at the 'dime store' that was the only place I could buy them. Anyway, my allowance was only a quarter per week so I had to really want it to buy more than one per week and not get any candy. So maybe it was fortunate that there wasn't much selection.

    Jan, they were probably a lot cheaper back then too. When I started reading comics, they were just 12 cents each, which in financial terms made them the best investment I ever made in my life. Although if I knew then what I knew now, I would have bought ten copies of everything instead of one, and put nine of them aside.
