Hi All

I never have been a major Thor fan, but recently I have been meaning expand my comic reading and am going to buy major storylines of Marvel iconic characters. You know - Thor, Hulk, Iron Man, Fantastic Four etc. I do buy the ‘Marvel Spotlight’ to help, but I missed the Thor one.

I know the major storylines such as:
- Blood and Thunder
- The newsiest series

That’s about it. Anything else that can be recommended? Also could you please specify if they are available in Trade form?

Much appreciated
Thanks


...are contained in Thor: Visionaries by Walt Simonson, volumes 1-4. Walt Simonson is the definitive Thor writer and I've reread his stories over and over.

Thor: Ragnarok (part of the Avengers: Disassembled storyline) is the last Thor arc before the current series. It's collected in trade form and was by far the best part of Avengers: Disassembled (perhaps the only good part).

Thor: Son of Asgard is available in digest form I think, and if you want to read about Thor when he was a kid before he could wield Mjolnir it's a fun read.

That's a start for you anyway. There are guys way more knowledgable than me around here who can help you further. \:\)
