Well, I’m back and this time I’m bringing the pick of the week with me. As you can all probably tell from the header, I’m going with Thor: God of Thunder #23. Well really if you check out the cover it says 023, but who we kidding. This or any other Marvel book sure as hell ain’t gonna make it to triple digits. Amirite? You know I am. Back to my review, this tale takes place in the present and the future.
In the present, Thor deals with the crap that Roxxon oil is pulling by opening up plants in Thor’s beloved Broxton (by the way of the Golden Bridge) causing pollution that damn near drives everyone out of the town. Huh, who knew that having a Thunder God who fights all types of magical bad guys would not be a plus to your town?

Hey there, kids and fully grown adults. Tash Moore here with a review for more Bronze Age Thor goodness. Well to be fully honest with you, some of the tales are a bit lackluster. No wonder they gave the book to Walt Simonson and let him do what he wanted. While the story could be hit or miss (Like almost anything like the big two throw at us each and every month) the art was always top notch. “Big” John Buscema always had a bevy of inkers to make his fantastic work look even better. Unless your name just happened to end with Colletta. We hate that guy. (And not just 'cause he was awful.) So that’s a major plus in my book. Which you can’t read. Hey, it is MY book. Go get your own, you troll faced goober.
Anyway, I’ve got a book to review and in this issue, Thor gets a break. Yeah, I’m just kidding, we all know he doesn’t.

That's right! I believe Moon Knight was my last Pick of the Week and now it's my current Pick of the Week too. We'll have to see how long it can keep up this streak.
It's another great stand-alone story that we've got here. It's nice. You don't have to worry about getting lost in the story if you don't remember what happened in the previous issues. That can happen if you read a lot of books or those books happen to fall behind schedule. But not this book... So far...

In this story titled “Where Chaos Rules” it should just really be titled, “Where Continuity Chaos Rules.” Okay, not really a good title but you know, you get the idea. Tash Moore here, and seeing as how the summer is here and flash floods haven’t sent the Garden State out into the ocean, I can get back to the really important things in life. Like what might you ask? Well, penning this Bronze Age Thor tale from The Mighty Thor #216. Now you all know the deal by now that I don’t get too deep into the details (go read the damn comic for yourself.) but I give it to you quick and dirty. (That sounds wrong.)
Thor and the Asgardians along with Mercurio
