Lightning Strikes a Fourth Time for Thor

I've been liking this series.  I've said it before that I've always been iffy on Thor's adventures.   I think when it's all based in Asgard, I just start to get bored.  Yeah I like a good adventure but I think I'm more into the god/human ties (except for Thunderstrike, ugh, who's idea was the lightning bolt earring?).  I especially loved the showdown between Thor and Iron Man.  Thor has become one of titles I look forward to once again.  And with issue #5, maybe Thor will be getting some soon.

Marvel is proud to announce that Thor #4 has sold out at Diamond (though copies may be available at the retail level). This is the Odinson’s fourth consecutive sell-out since JMS and Oliver Coipel re-launched the series in July. Due to the overwhelming demand for the issue, Marvel is going back to press with Thor #4 Second Printing Variant, featuring Oliver Coipel's interior page of Volstagg, Fandral and Hogun -- The Warrior's Three -- as the cover!


“Thor #4 uses Thor's human half to tackle a real world crisis as only comic books are capable… it succeeds quite well in blending fictional gods with very real conflicts,” says Jesse Schedeen of IGN.com


Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Thor #4 Second Printing Variant and all future issues of the series, as the first four issues have sold-out.


Also, be sure not to miss Thor #5! With Heimdall’s help, Thor quickens his pace, and continues to search far and wide for his Asgardian brethren. But will he be prepared for who he finds next! Where there is Thor, there must also be… Sif!?

In other Thor news, word is the movie will most likely be delayed due the the writer's strike.  It's set to begin shooting at the end of 2008.  No idea if it will still be released in 2009.  The good news is the plan is to film in jolly old England.  That means we won't get the golden hills of California in the background.
