Thor #24 happens to be the 750th Thor issue via Legacy numbering and they are certainly bringing out the big guns. I wasn’t shocked to see Simonson’s name since he’s done a couple variant covers and small stories for Thor in recent years, but Stracynski? I don’t think he’s written Thor since his run ended. I’ve always been a fan of his Thor run and it was a shame that it got cut short, so anything would be great. Also delightfully surprised to see Jurgens here. Read it for yourselves:
“This April, the halls of Asgard will erupt with thunder as its greatest legends return home to tell thrilling new tales in an oversized spectacular honoring 750 issues of Thor!
THOR #24 will take place in the aftermath of "GOD OF HAMMERS," the latest epic in writer Donny Cates and artist Nic Klein's hit run on the title. After a scorched-earth victory, Thor and all of Asgard reel from a brutal loss. And as Thor and his allies come together so will fan-favorite creators from throughout Thor's history! In addition to the main story by Cates and Klein, join some of Thor's most acclaimed writers and artists as they revisit their landmark runs with all-new adventures:
Writer J. Michael Straczynski and artist Oliver Coipel reunite for a story set during their redefining Thor saga
Legendary comics creator Dan Jurgens writes and draws an incredible Thor and Balder teamup
Comics icon Walter Simonson writes and draws an all-new adventure starring his beloved creation, Beta Ray Bill
Al Ewing and Lee Garbett collaborate for the first time since LOKI: AGENT OF ASGARD to bring you an all-new chapter for the god of mischief
Superstar team Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz are back together to captivate you with an Enchantress story
And prepare for a revelatory tale about Odin that only writer Jason Aaron and artist Das Pastoras can deliver!
Celebrate the long and storied history of the God of Thunder with the writers and artists who helped build his legacy when THOR #24 hits stands in April.”
Even with an Aaron Odin story, that’s a pretty solid lineup.
...albeit for just one ish.
I do miss it though.
