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!

Love and Lore

As a fan of X-plain the X-men, I was delighted to see the Miles was taking on a new topic. Elizabeth adds a finishing touch that made made listening just a delight. After the first episode, I went and got the comics so I could read along! If you want to know about Thor in comics, this is where you need to start.

Part review part radio drama

Miles expresses so much enthusiasm for Thor in his other podcast, I'm really happy for him that he gets to do this run on part of the Thor comics. I personally have never been into Marvel's Thor, but I know that Miles's love of it can pull me through to enjoying this journey. It doesn't have the same level of biting analysis from Xplain the Xmen (not surprising since there's no Jay around) but it still blends commentary and explanation that you'd get from their sibling X-men podcast. The grand surprise is the reading of lines from the comic book. I don't know what it is about Elisabeth's voice and reading but I love listening to her speak as different characters. Miles always does a great job reading as different characters and their Odin provides a fun change of pace as well. I would love to see this group of people put together a old-time-radio style podcast

I guess pausing podcasts to review them is a thing I do now?

Only for podcasts I like, mind you.

Anyway, the first thing I wanted to note that both Miles and Elizabeth read — that's not a strong enough word. Deliver? Declaim? — Walter Simonson's epic words so dramatically that sometimes I get chills as if I were reading them myself, if that makes any sense.

Next, I paused during Episode 7, "The Executioner's Last Stand" because Miles described Skurge is "a guy who fights with an axe and his shirt has a picture of an axe on it" and it made me giggle and giggle.

Ok, I can press Play now. Yay!
