What issues did the King Thor Saga happen? It sounds really interesting.

I highly recommend "The Eternal Saga."

It's epic scope and incredible climax are worthy of Thor. This is the story arc that made Thor an all-time favorite of mine.

I've read a bit on Thor too. Liked half of what I'v read. Thor GOT is the best by far. Then comes the violent Thor run of Blood Rein. After that I'll say Thor when he got Odin Force and rebuilt Asgard.

Other than that, I've zero clue. I love Thor but it's so hard to read which comics...

It'd be nice if ppl recommended any good Thor stories. I know his history quite well but what are some great runs? I've heard Simmon's run was great. what else?

better than Thor GoT? Cus that one blew me away. I also liked the one where Thor became alive again after CivilWar then rebuilt Asgard and all its gods

Better than GoT? That's a matter of opinion. I read the one I recommended as a ten-year old kid and have been hooked on Thor ever since.

I recently had a fun debate with someone at a local comic shop about which Thor run was greater between Jurgens and JMS. I have the JMS Omnibus and most of the Jurgens run (still completing it). I just re-read the first 12 issues of the Jurgens run, and it was some of the most fun I've had in years. I remembered the Jurgens run fondly, and I wanted to see if it aged well or not. Holy crap does it ever. Sorry, but since Uncle Walt's legendary run, the next greatest Thor story is easily Dan Jurgens' take. Sure, Coipel and Djurdevic made better art than JRJR, but Romita's bombastic style fit perfectly for Jurgens' story. I highly recommend the run to those who haven't read it. Putting it next to JMS' is almost unfair, because JMS' run never really concluded and is a much different style of story. Though they both deal with Thor returning from apparent death and having to figure out what happened to the rest of the Asgardians. Watching how Jurgens weaved his story those first 12 issues was a real treat. Thor was juggling having to figure out what happened to Asgard and his family, his return to Earth alongside his Avenger teammates, having to live the life of a fallen paramedic, nearly dying and being a captive of Hela, and orchestrating a war to rescue Asgard and the Asgardians (including Odin) from the really powerful Dark Gods. Oh yea and he also teams up with Namor, Spider-Man and Hercules (a bunch) as well. The pace is blistering and the action dramatic. I also remembered how well Jurgens' threw in elements like how humans had become cynical about superheroes, especially Thor since he called himself a god. Considering how decompressed stories are these days, those first 12 issues in Jurgens' run contain about 30 issues worth of plot and action by today's standards.

Oh, and Thor fans, for those of us who have been forced to read through some of the dark ages of Thor between the Bendis and Fraction stuff, Jurgens' Thor is an absolute BEAST when it comes to battling and being a warrior. God blasts, anti-force blasts, energy absorption, weaving through dimensions at will and overall strength, durability and cunning.

J. Micheal Straczynskis 3 volumes are the best
