Dear Invincibly Super Massive Comic Book Podcast of Stuff, I saw Thor: The Dark World last night and it reminded me that I know very little about the Asgardian corner of the Marvel Universe. I have been reading Jason Aaron's Thor: God of Thunder, and I've been enjoying it, but it has been a very action oriented run. Can you recommend any Thor stories that focus more on character development (particularly of Thor and/or Loki) or Asgardian society, culture or politics? Also, can you name any good Sif stories?
My second question is: who or what is Beta Ray Bill? I've seen issues at my local shop and there was some announcement made about him (it?) for the all-new Marvel now.
