Issue Review
 
RikerDonegal
   October 26, 2016
Tedious. Pointless. A story from Thor's past, in which he and Loki somehow travel in time, and arrive back at the siege of Troy. Thor somehow has lost his memory. He eventually gets it back. None of this has any bearing on the story, of course. It just happens. The early scenes retell the Helen of Troy story, briefly introducing a lot of characters we don't care about. The middle scenes mostly feature a big battle, with various gods (including Thor) interfering. Finally, there's a big showdown between Thor and Zeus. They fight. And fight. And fight. Until... they decide to stop. Having wasted our time with all that, Roy Thomas ends with a very, very obvious use of Loki. 4/10

  I thought this was amazing. I expected to dislike it, but it worked well. Probably part of my enjoyment lies in the interweaving of thor into classical Greek mythology. I look forward to the next year's annual.

  I've heard, read and seen the story of Troy so many times now that it bores me to death..

  Is Zeus arguing with himself on page 38, last panel?

  Looks like Roy Thomas lied about doing a Roman mythology story in the next annual. It's probably for the best.
