KID'S KLASSIC (KIRBY) KOMIC KOVERS - JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY #83...


Image copyright MARVEL COMICS

THOR The MIGHTY looks a little undernourished in this
cover, as he did in many of his early appearances, but it wasn't too
long before he was beefed-up and looked a bit more manly (despite
the long hair).  When this illo was used in The MIGHTY WORLD
Of MARVEL #20 to promote Thor's 'debut' in SPIDER-MAN
COMICS WEEKLY #1, it was retouched to make him look
bulkier and more impressive, as befitting his godly status.

The original is still a great cover 'though, eh?

Oops!  Just noticed that I posted this cover not long ago
as part of the 'Klassic Komic Kovers' series.  My ol' memory
must be failing me!  Never mind, at least it provides you with
a choice of my woeful waffle to read, depending on which of
  the two posts you happen upon.  Aren't I generous?!

Thor? Put some ointment on it!

I'd much rather have Lee Meriwether do that for me, Phil. Who wouldn't?
