Nrama: In September you and frequent collaborator Ron Garney re-team for an arc that sees Thor face-off with Malekith the Accursed, one of the villains in the upcoming Thor movie. Malekith hasn’t been seen much in comics recently, so can you tell us what makes him interesting to you as a character – and what makes him someone to be feared?

Aaron: There are a couple questions the story tries to answer. Malekith was the big villain from Walter Simonson’s run on Thor, and at the time he was the leader of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim. Since then he’s popped up a few times here and there, but he starts in “The Accursed” arc in an otherworldly prison with some of his dark elf minions come to break him free. From there they set off on a rampage of all nine realms, with him murdering his own people over what they became in his absence.

This affords me the opportunity to take a road trip through the nine realms. By the end of the book, I want readers to know the difference between Svartalfheim, Jotunheim, Alfheim – all the 'heims' in Norse mythology. We’ll also have a map to help with that. We’ll see each one of those worlds in the course of the story, and learn who’s where, what the terrain is like, and how it’s all different. By the end of “The Accursed” we’ll have a much clearer picture of the setting of Thor’s world, and certainly have a bigger picture of Malekith’s role within that.

Nrama: In an interview on CBR you described Malekith as the Joker to Thor’s Batman. Can you elaborate on their dynamic?

Aaron: Malekith is very much a sort of mad butcher as well as a dark sorcerer. He makes for a good foil for Thor in that he’s so much of what Thor hates and despises. He’s someone content to just chaos and malevolence for just the sake of chaos and malevolence. He’s willing to do absolutely whatever it takes to get what he wants. He’ll kill, butcher and maim absolutely anyone, and sets out on an insane bloody rampage over the course of this arc.

D-oh! I posted that interview in it's own thread. But what the heck, we can discuss it here.

I don't want to look at any previews, I want to go in fresh. But I will say that I'm really jacked about reading this upcoming issue. It's been a great, GREAT arc.

Wow, Ribic was ON FIRE! His work was awe inspiring, left me breathless in the way he evoked Thor's raw power and Godly bearing.

Aaron wrote some scintillating dialog. And while he doesn't directly answer the lingering question about whether Gor has a point, he does answer it through Thor's actions. God's will stumble, they can be selfish and stupid and they will carry regrets over that (King Thor's speech to Young Thor) but they will also rise when needed, sacrifice themselves for the good and be there to comfort when called.

My only quibble was with the Spoiler! (Highlight to see text): selective amnesia. Felt like a contrivance, but I'll have to see if a second read through helps with that. On the first go through I didn't really care for it.

But overall I think this arc was one of the greatest Thor stories ever told.

Thor dominates Multiversity's panel picks of the week. And those 2 scenes were incredible.

The opening story line for this series has been outstanding, IMHO. This is a book that has consistently been at or near the top of my reading pile each month.

I'm looking forward to seeing if they can keep the quality story-telling going.

Just an opinion.

Issue 12 was a quieter issue, but just as powerful as we learn that being a God is more than swinging hammers in battle.Aaron’s story has heart and a message, but he offers a soft enough touch that it comes off moving rather than preachy or schmaltzy.

I'm not sure about Jane Foster's reaction. When people are sick they'll try anything, no matter how outlandish to get well. I get that Aaron had a tough job here -- make it poignant and don't cheapen it by giving us a quick Godly fix... but still, you take help no matter where it comes from.

Nevertheless it was a very touching sequence between the two.

Thor: God of Thunder #19 Cover by Esad Ribic

The next big arc of THOR kicks off in February, with the return of both artist Esad Ribic and Old King Thor. Decide for yourself which is the more imposing figure. We also have the (re)introduction of a big new villain for the God of Thunder: ROXXON. It's been awhile since we've seen the Marvel U's favorite evil corporation in action, but they come roaring back in a huge way in this arc. They've even got a brand new CEO, who's so ruthless he has the nickname The Minotaur. Though I wonder if that's the only reason he has that nickname? There's also lots of S.H.I.E.L.D. action, revolving around Agent Roz Solomon, our gun-toting environmentalist who first appeared back in THOR GOD OF THUNDER #12. Plus submarines, floating islands, flying factories, and oh yeah... King Thor vs. Old Galactus! I'm pretty excited about this one.

THOR: GOD OF THUNDER #19.NOW
JASON AARON (W) • ESAD RIBIC (A/C)
Variant Cover by Milo Manara
Variant Cover by Simone Bianchi

THE LAST DAYS OF MIDGARD begin NOW!
Thor, Asgardian God of Thunder, has always fought to save his adopted home of Earth. But who can he fight when the planet itself is dying? Thor's mortal ally and environmental secret agent Roz Solomon has a few ideas. Namely the world's largest and most nefarious energy company Roxxon, and its ruthless new CEO known as "The Minotaur." Has the God of Thunder finally met his match, in the form of a multinational super-corporation? Meanwhile, many millennia ahead, a future version of Thor faces a very different battle to save what remains of the earth--a battle against the greatest villain the Marvel Universe has ever known—Galactus, the Devourer of Worlds!
32 PGS./Rated T+ ...$3.99

Ye Gods, Ribic is BACK! Here's more art from the issue. http://www.comicvine.com/articles/first-look-thor-god-of-thunder-19-now-the-last-day/1100-147926/

It's gorgeous, the line work and the colors, simply gorgeous. And breathtaking -- that's another good word. There's such a feeling of majesty and dynamism. The way Thor bullets through the air in this page -for example- is simple but breathtaking.

Cover









I gather from what Ribic said that they are trying new things with the color. A little less with the soft washes, a little more crisp and oil painting bold.

Cover









And this is simply epic, I love the choreography of the two figures in battle. There are no motion lines as in days of old, but the way Ribic draws your eye, you don't need them. You can see it in the way the head is thrust upwards, the helmet hanging in the air, you can imagine the sweep of Thor's hammer and see the devastating results as it makes contact

Image


So looking forward to this issue.
