Classic Kirby or Modern Medieval?

#1 Edited by Smart_Dork_Dude (2633 posts) - - Show Bio

Which do you prefer? The classic super technological look Jack Kirby used for Thor and Asgard or the medieval look that was used in Thor's revival and other stories such as Thor Ages of Thunder?

I'll admit, there's a lot to like about both designs. Having said that, I think that Copiel's design (modern medieval) is a great fit for the current age.

I'm slightly more partial to the original Kirby designs. Then again it could just be that I'm a major fan of Jack Kirby's work in general. I was so amazed they managed to make the Kirby designs work in live action!!!!

Personally, I love the the new Thor.  The old stuff is great and I'll continue to read it (I don't have a lot of the earlier collections) but for me the updated look and world is more enjoyable.

Kind of sucks they got rid of the medieval look for his new Marvel Now look. But the Coipel design is by far my favorite for him.

The Kirby-look is my choice.

No question. No doubt.

In my opinion, the classic stories were better; but Thor's new costume is by far better than the old.

Love the old stories as well as the art, but the new suit is nice!

I love both designs... it's a difficult choice. I think the medieval look is a good choice right now, though.

This so much. Coipel designed and drew the best Thor costume IMO.

@Smart_Dork_Dude: As far as modern looks go, I thought this one was pretty great

but I'll always be partial to classic Thor

I agree, I loved his modern look , this one is very nice, but not the same.
