Format: Hardcover
Thor Marvel Masterworks volume 12 features eleven Thor comics cover dated from December 1972 to October 1973. Written by a young Gerry Conway and for the most part illustrated by John Buscema. Vince Colletta inks the first eight stories. Colletta's inking does not do justice to Busecema pencils. He loses too much detail.

The background for this volume is Odin has not just banished Thor to live on earth but all his asguardian comrades must dwell there as well. The volume opens with a two parter Thor #206 and #207 that features the Crusher Creel the Absorbing Man and Loki as villains. It is a fun story with Len Wien, his wife Glynis, Gerry Conway and Steve Engleheart all involved in the story. Gerry Conway's introduction gives you background on this story but nothing else. Marie Severin does the depictions of the bullpen staff inserted into the story.

Thor #208 involves the introduction of Mercurio the 4D man. Conway seems to love this villain, but I find him very lame. The best part is when Thor pokes his head in Don Blake's office and finds Mercurio waiting to ambush him. How long has he been waiting ..............years? That's how long it has been since we have seen him as a doctor.

In Thor #209 we see Don Blake make his only appearance and that is only so he can stop at a British pub and have beer before he fights the Deadly Druid another lame-o Conway creation.

Thor #210 and #211 are a two parter and an enjoyable tale where Thor battles Ulik the Troll. Starting with this story Big John did only breakdowns and Don Perlin did the finished pencils.

Thor #212 to #216 is five part train wreck. I tried to read it in one sitting hoping it would hold together better but most of it makes little sense.

Format: Hardcover
These stories date from the early '70s. The cover dates range from December 1972 to October 1973. Probably the best that can be said of them is a.) John Buscema's art is consistently good throughout and b.) the stories aren't unreadable.

The stories pick up from the previous masterwork with Thor and his closest friends exiled to earth. The first four story arcs are spread across the first six issues. None are particularly memorable but the best of the lot is the fight against Ulik and the trolls in #210 and #211. The introduction of the troll queen was of some interest. It always fascinated me how Marvel depicted its evil nonhuman races. The males were always hideous looking to make them more fearsome while the females were drawn to be much more attractive by human standards. The first two issues in this collection, #206 and #207, feature another trip to Rutland, Vermont with appearances from the Marvel bullpen. I find these stories somewhat more annoying than charming.

The train jumps the track in the five issue story arc that closes the book out. It has all the earmarks of being rushed and made up on the fly. The plot involves a bunch of interstellar slavers that attack Asgard, prevail, and sap their will to resist (including Odin) by drugging their gruel. A story where the Kingpin blackmails Galactus with some juicy cell phone shots could not have stretched my credulity further. It goes downhill from there.

There are no extras, just an introduction by Gerry Conway notable for its background on Marvel's fascination with Rutland.

Recommended for the Thor completist. I hope story quality bottomed out in this volume and there is some recovery in the next.
