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.
Review of the comic book’s Story
Sometimes a story rubs you wrong at the beginning, and never recovers, for me this is one of those stories. Early on, Thor is helping demonstrate with the aid of another scientist an invention of Dr. Don Blake.
I have not minded the medical breakthrough’s of the MD, but this invention is just too far of a stretch for me to accept. Beyond that, I found the characters to be weak in this issue; it is also way to similar to last months Journey Into Mystery.
Review of the comic book’s Artwork
Where the story was majorly lacking, I feel Joe Sinnott did a passable job with the artwork. making the bad story at least look OK. This however does not at all make up for the lack of a good story, and in fact, i feel the story does even hurt the artwork in some panel’s
Characters & Development
gods of Asgard
The one aspect of this story that showed promise, was the peaceful visit to Asgard where Thor is there to use his powers to help his fellow god’s. this shows us how the god’s of Asgard depend upon each other in the marvel universe. I look forward to seeing more of them in the issues to come
Thor’s Alter Ego Don Blake
I already said this, but I will close the review by repeating it. I feel they need to let don Blake stick to medical science, as this was a major stretch for me, it would have been a stretch even for Mr. Fantastic, but impossible for Dr. Blake.
Comic Book Review Summery
I think you can tell if you read the whole review up to this point, that this comic book is worth tossing into the skip pile, there was few merits to the issue, and i suspect few lasting consequences.
