STAFF PICKS :: THOR THE MIGHTY AVENGER COMPLETE COLLECTION :: FEBRUARY 13

SETH’S PICK :: THOR THE MIGHTY AVENGER COMPLETE COLLECTION: This series remains one that I wholeheartedly love.  Though Marvel ended it far too early, and though their attempt to pigeonhole it as an all-ages book may have limited its audience, the book may well be one of the purest examples of super hero comics from the past decade.  You’ve got Roger Langridge writing a charming tale, Chris Samnee doing work that probably helped land him his current Daredevil gig, and perfectly fitting colors by Matt Wilson.  There are obligatory appearances from the likes of Captain America, Ant Man/Giant Man, Wasp, Sub-Mariner and Iron Man, but more than that, there’s a wonderful energy in these books.  These are stories that unabashedly celebrate what made so many of us love super hero comics from our first encounters with them.  The fact that these are innocent tales you can read to your children is really just the icing on the cake.
