Written by STAN LEE
Penciled by JACK KIRBY
Long live Asgard, True Believers! What better way to herald the return of the God of Thunder, than to usher in another Mighty Thor Masterworks!

Beginning with a pair of irredeemable uglies, Replicus and the Super-Skrull, the adventure then takes itself up a Norse notch when the evil Loki conspires to have Thor stripped of his power and vanquished to Earth! Stranded there, he must struggle to survive the machinations of his scheming half-brother, while attemping to regain the graces of All-Father Odin.
Last, but not least: Enter one of the most beloved baddies in all of the Asgardian entourage - The Wrecker! The decidedly mortal Thor must battle to his very last breath against this crowbar-wielding wingnut, who himself is powered with Asgardian might! And we'll warn you now, the last note is a tragic one as Thor faces his ladylove, Sif - in the body of the undefeatable Destroyer!
It's drama as only the Masters of the Marvel Age can make it! Collecting THOR (Vol. 1) #141-151.

From the mind of Monte Cook comes an exhilarating adventure set in his groundbreaking world of Ptolus, the City by the Spire.Sheva Callister thought she was retired after a tough "treasure hunting" expedition went sour and claimed the life of her partner, Parnell. But when a high-ranking noble from the city of Ptolus calls on her to retrieve a special brooch, she's willing to venture out on one last expedition for the right price. Ptolus is anything but a straightforward city, though, and as Sheva works her way towards her goal, she finds herself caught in a web of deception and intrigue. And as she travels from the tombs of the Lich King Narros to the towers overlooking the City by the Spire, Sheva quickly realizes she must find the source of this misery if she hopes to complete her quest or else the powers-that-be in Ptolus may put a stop to her adventuring forever.
