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 look at a nice offbeat scene, perfect for April 1st!
The Mighty Thor #112, by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, is well known for its big battle between Thor and the Hulk (which took place between panels of Avengers #3).
However, what I think stands out more so than the battle itself (which is awesome – so good that I will probably eventually feature it, as well) is the framing sequence that sets up Thor recollecting about the untold battle between he and the Hulk.
Then, after the tale is over…
What a delightfully moment of metafiction by Lee and Kirby!
As for “the” moment, I suppose I would pick the panel where Thor just sits down next to the teenagers.
I especially love how the jerky kid just calls Thor out on his pontification. “Yeah, Thor, whatever, quit your yapping and just tell us already!”
