From the Mondo Marvel panel at C2E2, we have news of the announcement of a new Thor mini by Roger Langridge and Chris Samnee!
The mini is said to put a timeless spin on the character. It will consist of mostly stand-alone issues with an overall plot runing through them, and feature frequent guest appearances from many characters in both Thor’s corner of the Marvel Universe and the MU as a whole.
Langridge had this to say about the book:
"I’m hoping to strike a balance between the extraordinary and the human, between light-hearted and dramatic, which seems to me to be fundamental to the Marvel approach going right back to Stan Lee. There’s an overarching subplot that will carry us through most of the first year, but we won’t be banging you over the head with it. Most issues will also work as stand-alone episodes, punctuated by the occasional two-parter. But when they’re all put together, you should be able to get that little bit more out of reading it as a whole."
"There’ll be some subtle reinterpretations of old villains, both Asgardian and earthly, and some new threats as well. I feel no super hero comic is ever really complete without some evil robots. And, of course, the inevitable misunderstandings with some of Marvel’s other heroes! We’re kicking things off with Mister Hyde, who’s been given a makeover by the extraordinary Chris Samnee that will make you feel like you need a thorough scrubbing from head to foot."
"I will just say that I think artist Chris Samnee is our secret weapon. His design sense, rock-solid storytelling and superb character acting will knock your socks off. That’s certainly what it did for me-I haven’t seen my socks in weeks."
