THOR: The Lightning and the Storm is a 13-episode podcast love letter to Walter Simonson’s epic 1980s run on The Mighty Thor. Join us for the epic highs and lows that only Viking space-gods can experience: Noble alien horse-dudes! Star-sized fire giants trying to burn down the universe! Villains redeemed through valiant and legitimately tear-jerking sacrifice! And yes, that one time Thor was a cape-wearing frog for a surprisingly long time! We’ll marvel at the glories of about four issues per episode, stopping along the way to discuss the most elaborate hats in the Nine Realms, the most metal mythological moments, and the relative merits of BARRROOOOMMM versus KRAKA-DOOOM!
