MARVEL COMICS' THE MIGHTY THOR

Marvel Comics has announced an April launch for The Mighty Thor #1, an ongoing series by writer Matt raction and Olivier Coipel.

Here's how Marvel describes the book:

"Thor must defend his homeworld of Asgard from Galactus! When Thor and Sif retrieve an artifact from deep within the World Tree, nobody expected the Silver Surfer to show up. And where the Sentinel of the Spaceways travels, Galactus is sure to follow! It's the World Eater vs. Asgard in the explosive opening arc!"

"Everything is going beyond epic in The Mighty Thor and I couldn't be more thrilled to have Olivier onboard for the book's maiden voyage," Fraction said.

"It's a really exciting time to be working on Thor. A lot of things that have been developing over the last few months are about to come to fruition in a big way -- and in a way that's going to affect not only all of Asgard, but all of the Marvel U, said editor Charlie Beckerman. "With the release of Marvel Studios' Thor this May, we wanted to be sure that we pulled out all the big guns."

Thor undergoes a name change to Journey into Mystery #622, with Loki featured in a story by Kieron Gillen and Doug Braithwaite.

The first issue will feature a cover by Coipel, variants by Travis Charest and Walt Simonson and a movie photo variant. It will cost $3.99.
