"Greetings, Mortals! Tis I, Thor Odinson"
This is the first phrase you read as you open the pages of The World According to Thor by Marc Sumerak and Freddie E. Williams II
After a warm greeting and an invitation to glimpse life from the POV of a god, the adventure begins.
Part of what makes Thor himself is the great hammer Mjolnir
- Unleashes earth-shattering blows and damage
- absorbs and redirects all forms of energy
- hears the call of the whosoever worthy and will return to them even from worlds away
Worthy- Those pure of heart and mind, no ego or ill will.
From his ever present hammer, you get to meet those closest to Thor.
Bor, Cul, Gaea, Freyja, Odin, Balder, Tyr and Loki
Balder the Brave, Fandral the Dashing, Hogun the Grim, Volstagg the Voluminous and even Loki
Now, on to a one on one with the All Father- Odin
and learn about The Odinforce, Odinsleep, Odinsword and Odindance (not Thor's favorite story).
The Nine Realms
In between each of the Realm tours you get side excursions through things like Thor's love life, his time with the Avengers, and a few of the foes he has faced.
And you can't have a glimpse into Thor's life without a good portion of it being occupied by the love/hate relationship with his brother Loki.
This book by Insight Editions is filled with incredible illustrations (as you can see), great writing and really geektastic pullouts (those I didn't spoil for you).
If you are a Thor fan, as I am, The World According to Thor is a MUST HAVE in your collection.
