Thor #337

themarvelageofcomics:

Here’s Walt Simonson’s cover to THOR #337, his first issue.

This comic book changed my life. I had been reading comics sporadically for several years before this saw print, but Simonson’s Thor made me a collector. I had to go to the drug store several times a week, because they only got a couple copies of most titles each month and I had to know what was happening. A missed issue was like an open wound.

We didn’t get a dedicated comic book store until high school, so every trip to an actual city would find me digging through back issue bins to fill in gaps that might have been 6 or 8 years old.
