Few people have ever left their mark on one character quite the way Walter Simonson has. His work on the Mighty Thor swept the Norse God of Thunder to heights never before seen and rarely achieved in his wake. Spanning epic tales of heroism and treachery, love and war, Simonson's work is often considered the definitive Thor. From the majesty and mystery of fabled Asgard to the gritty streets of New York City, Thor was never the same. That is the mark of a true visionary. This second volume continues the collection of Simonson's epic run. COLLECTING: Thor 346-355

In 2000, legendary writer/artist Walter Simonson, best known for his work on DC's Manhunter and Marvels' Thor, treated comics fans to his vision of Jack Kirby's Fourth World mythology. At the center of the series was the conflict between Orion, born on the violent world of Apokolips but raised on peaceful New Genesis, and his father, Darkseid, ruler of Apokolips. Focusing on the clash between father and son, the series features most of the Fourth World heroes and villains created by Jack Kirby, as Darkseid seeks the deadly anti-life equation - and Orion battles to stop him from eradicating life as we know it! This title also includes short stories written by Simonson and illustrated by Frank Miller, Dave Gibbons, Howard Chaykin, Jim Lee and others. Collects ORION #1-25 and stories from JACK KIRBY'S FOURTH WORLD #9-11 and 13.

Genre: Good and evil
Ragnar�k, the doom of the gods, has finally occurred. But the long-held belief that evil would be destroyed along with the gods in that final conflagration proved false. Only the gods died. The Nine Worlds collapsed and became the Dusk Lands, a vast twilight realm inhabited by men, trolls, demons, and shattered kingdoms, under the tyranny of the Great Enemies. After hundreds of years, a single god emerged into the post-Ragnar�k world, Thor, the God of Thunder. But Angantyr, the Lord of the Dead, has discovered his reappearance, and unleashes his draugar, the undead walkers, against the Thunder God, seeking to destroy the last vestige of the former worlds, and the only hope for the present one.
A hero returns - and an epic saga begins! Dan Jurgens ushers in one of the greatest eras of Thor - and it begins with the truly blockbuster art of John Romita Jr.! The Thunder God walks the Earth once more, but his new lease on life comes with new enemies - and a new mortal alter ego! Will Thor's comeback be cut short by Dark Gods, the Destroyer and Doctor Doom? Then, on the Eighth Day, the unstoppable Juggernaut will be just the beginning for Thor, Iron Man and Spider-Man! The heavy hitters keep on coming - like Mangog and Thanos! But if Thor is busy saving Midgard, who's protecting Asgard?

Before Walter Simonson's work with Marvel and DC, there was Star Slammers, a series first devised by Simonson during his college days. The Slammers would later be resurrected as a Marvel graphic novel, and then a miniseries. Simonson describes it thus: "Once upon a time, there was a race of men who could out-shoot, out-fight, and out-kill anybody. They were paid fabulous sums to act as mercenaries. The practice became so lucrative, they decided to go into business. They became the most successful businessmen in history, and they called themselves... The Star Slammers!" The collected Star Slammers also features-published here for the very first time-Simonson's earliest version of the Slammers created for his college thesis at the Rhode Island School of Design. These stories predate his first professional comics work but strongly show the artist's keen sense of composition and design. The first printing of this book will contain a bound-in signature plate, signed by Walter Simonson! Included in every copy of the book at no extra charge, and strictly limited to the first printing!
