For today’s comic book review I read Journey Into Mystery #99, featuring the first of a two-part story starring The Mighty Thor. this, the first part of the story is titled “The Mysterious Mister Hyde!”. With the title one might suspect, it is a tale that is a play on Dr. Jekyll and Mister Hyde, and in fact they would be right.
You see our stories antagonist is a Man with scientific knowledge, whom was inspired by the very story he draws the name Hyde form to create an elixir that would instill the same effect on him that Dr. Jekyll faced. With the power of Mr. Hyde he aims for revenge on Dr. Don Blake, and also to stop Thor from being able to foal him. (more…)

For today’s comic book review we have Journey Into Mystery #98, and the story titled “Challenged By The Human Cobra!” Featuring The Mighty Thor! Then As you may recall, we left last time hanging with Jane Foster leaving the employment of Dr. Don Blake for another doctor. This story picks up, almost no time later, continuing that fateful tale only with a new menace for Thor to Face.
It is in this story that we get introduced to The Cobra, a snake-like foe whom got his powers after a scheme of murder and being bitten by a Radioactive snake of the same name.
But the story is just as much about Thor Facing off against the Cobra as it is about him dealing with Jane Fosters departure, and as comic book fake would have it, before the final page, she would have a role to play in this epic tale, an end up being the Cobra’s Captive. (more…)

For today’s Comic Book Review I read Journey Into Mystery #97 and reviewed the Thor Story Titled “The Mighty Thor Battles The Lava Man”, but in addition to this epic tale, this issue debuted “Tales of Asgard” a short-lived story about Thor’s Home land, I will be reviewing them at a later date collectively.
this story however had it all, it had the action that keeps us coming back week after week, as well as character development and story that seems to have lasting changes. Then to top the great story off the Artwork was top notch, among the best work I recall seeing Jack Kirby do. (more…)
Journey Into Mystery #96
The Mighty Thor! Defying The Magic Of... Mad Merlin!
January 10, 2012 | Drew | (No Comments)
For Today’s Comic Book Review i Read the Thor Story from Journey Into Mystery #96. This story is titled “The Mighty Thor! Defying The Magic Of… Mad Merlin!” and as we sit down to read and review it, we have to ask ourselves if it is truly a magical story, or if it is one that will just fizzle out.
to summarize the events of the comic, we have the crypt of Merlin being discovered, and his sarcophagus was transferred to New York to be opened at a museum. After being opened though, Merlin awakens and leaves having high hopes to become a modern seat of power. In his first attempt to impress the modern world, he learns to achieve his goal, he must first stop Thor. (more…)

for today’s comic book review i read Thor’s story from Journey Into Mystery #95 it is titled “The Mighty Thor Faces The Menace Of.. The Demon duplicator’s!”, in this tale, Thor faces a duplicate of himself, who has two hammer’s and is thus twice as powerful.
But the real question would be, is twice the number of Thor’s twice as good? or is two, one too many. and an interesting question indeed. (more…)

For Today’s Comic Book Review I read the Story “Thor and Loki Attack The Human Race!” from Journey Into Mystery #94. That is correct, you read right, Thor and Loki, working together, but it is sad to say that the cover and the opening page tell us about all we need to know about this story. The True fact is if I just judged this book by its cover, it would have gotten a better review.
Journey Into Mystery #93
The Mighty Thor Verses.. The Mysterious Radio-Active Man!
December 1, 2011 | Drew | (1 Comment)
As I sit down to do my comic book review of this tale of Thor Vs. The radio-active Man, I quickly find myself wondering, if it will get a glowing review, or just be all hype. Now having read it, I do find that this tale did glow, but not as brightly as I might have hoped.
a basic synopsis of the story would be as follows. After Thor helps put an end to an invasion in India from communist china, the Chinese decide to put forth an effort to eradicate Thor. This leads to a Scientist named Chen Lu, steps forward with an idea and plan to stop Thor. Using his scientific knowledge he transforms himself into Radio-active Man. after the change he sets forth to stop Thor by going to New York.

This issue of Journey Into Mystery is an important one, as it marks the first issue that Thor travels to Asgard himself. He has sent his hammer the distance with Loki before, but this time he is brought there to find what was taken from him.
but does the simple fact that this is his first trip home make it a worth wild story? does the evil plot of Loki pay off, and what about the feeling of timing in this issue? All these will be discussed in my comic book review of Journey Into Mystery #92.

After my Comic book Review of Journey Into Mystery #90 yesterday, I had to follow it with issue #91 today. after such a bad review, I had to know right away if the Thor story from April 1961’s was better.
To start was the artwork of Joe Sinnott more enjoyable than that of Al Hartley yesterday? Then did this issue also have a good plot and story? all important question’s after following an issue that had a good story but bad art.
But before even reading the story, the cover did a good job of getting me enthusiastic about the content and story. Just look at it, it is a bit awe-inspiring and detailed. so we where off to a good start.

With Journey Into Mystery #90 Thor is set to face the “Carbon Copy Man” whom is in actuality Lord Zano. Son of Lord Ugarth, alien leader of a race known as Xartans from the Zugano star system.
Wow that’s a mouth full for the start of today’s comic book review. does this shape changing alien race with the goal of earthly conquest live up to some of the others? or are they like the toad-men, and not worth a moment of my time?
