The five-page short that starts out the “Tales of Asgard” series acts a bit like a genesis for the Norse mythos at least as it pertains to the Marvel comics universe. I cannot claim to be well versed in actual notes mythology that serves as the bases for this story, but even if I was I would strive not to let that taint my judgment
This featurette tells the origin of the gods of Asgard and other key figures at the start of the mythos. It is a vague outline that talks about Surtur, Aesir, and Buri before referencing Borr and Odin on its final page.
It is short and to the point, sporting no dialogue but instead Text to go with each panel throughout the issue.
The work of Jack Kirby is timeless, the depth and detail of the opening panel starts the issue strong, but the highlight for me is on the panel that it ends with. Opting to show Oden and other gods in shadow to the left looking upon Earth with Yggdrasil, the world tree is spouting out of North America and its branches shielding the globe over.
