Issue Review
   March 11, 2016
Roy Thomas opens his his long run by delivering a highly enjoyable stand-alone flashback story drawn from Norse myth. Lots of fun.
Thor and Loki are lost and work together when set various tasks by a mysterious giant king.
Something very different to typical issues. Terrific fun.
Thomas starts here, and goes on to script 25 of the next 28 issues. John Buscema pencils 10 in the first half of the run, and Keith Pollard does 15 issues.

  -Not necessarily a bad issue, I just can't stomach this kind of story anymore.

  Like these retelling of the norse myths.
FYI in the old norse
Loge means flame, and Huge means thought

  This one brought back happy memories of reading Bulfinch's Mythology back when I was knee-high to a grasshopper.

  A fun Tales of Asgard issue. Cool to see Thor take his time and talk to the kids.

Shouldn't Thor have laughed at Harris?
