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

...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. \:\)
