A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 178
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today we take a look at a great moment from the beginning of Walt Simonson’s Thor run!
In The Mighty Thor #337, a new character, Beta Ray Bill shows up and shocks Thor by actually wielding Mjolnir!!
So in Thor #338, Odin decides the pair must fight for the right of wielding the mighty hammer.
It is a great fight courtesy of writer/artist Walt Simonson…
“The” moment for me is probably the ending.
Great work by Simonson, though (I’d have featured the moment where Beta Ray Bill first wields the hammer but, well, to be honest, Simonson handled that moment in sort of a laid back manner).
