All while Dave Sim’s “Cerebus,” and Jim Starlin’s “Dreadstar” pushed the envelope in comics’ indy world. In fact, Comico’s “Grendel,” from the white-hot brain of Matt Wagner, could still be found chilling on the spinner racks beside that unfathomable florescent living liquid lurking within yon Slurpee machine, heartrendingly close to the game room’s eternal dark—a realm outside space and time worthy of the Casket of Ancient Winters.
A few Seven Eleven spinner racks quite literally burst into flames from the creative outburst this ruddy pre-teen witnessed while the school’s benighted jocks and “cool” kids donned Army and Members Only jackets and embarked on the long hard trail to conformity—never sensing that twould be the Geek who would inherit the earth.
During this raucous time, Walt Simonson—if Jack Kirby ever had an heir, it was Simonson—created the ultimate sui generis…(Anon! pretentious word-use deliberate!)...character in that alien horse-faced love-child of The New Gods, Beta Ray Bill, in an arc that plays out across time more subtly than a range of groundbreaking comix that deliberately go unmentioned here.
Ha! You know the works of which I speak, lads, lasses, and fellow fans of that weird beast that is sequential art.
Why this book? Quite simply: see Thor face off against the Man Mountain, Surtur the Fire Giant, with his face like an angry red sun about to devour the universe. Marvel at John Workman’s ability to make Lettering (the forgotten art) sing with an emotion worthy of John Costanza in Miller’s “The Dark Knight Returns.”
At last Dr. Don Blake is kicked to the curb. Forgotten like an uneasy dream. (In mine, rabid hamsters devoured crows on a bleak midwinter morn.)
Watch Loki RISE to the creation we would all learn to love. Balder sheds the pounds and kicks monolithic tail in armor that would make Masters of the Universe’s Man at Arms blush with envy. What am I saying? Don’t buy this—and you are simply missing out on EPOCH defining-fun in the Might Marvel manner, true believer.
