This story recaps the early years of Thor as he arrived on Earth and meets Jane Foster. Thor wants his hammer back, but it’s trapped in a urn in a museum. Security thinks he’s nothing but a hobo and throws him out. But when Mr Hyde shows up and threatens Jane Foster’s life, things get more complicated for the son of Odin. This story is fun and simple, although it completely rewrites everything about Thor. That’s the one thing I don’t like about this type of stories that don’t try to fit in with what already exists but add a complete rewrite to a classic. I do like the characters and Jane Foster is more human and lively than she’s ever been. I like Thor as a big hobo and the fact that as of yet there’s not Loki in sight. Woah, a good Thor story without Loki? Well we know he’ll show up eventually. As for the art, I really like it. The characters’ smiles and faces were fun to watch. It gives the story a dated look which is good.
