Do you remember that alarming image from Donny Cates and Nic Klein’s smash run of Thor? You know, the one where Thanos decimated the entire Marvel Universe?
He’s been working hard to keep that from coming true. Whether or not the God of Thunder can stop it, remains a mystery. One that’ll only be resolved when The Legacy of Thanos arrives this December.
Penned by guest writer Torunn Grønbekk, along with returning artist Nic Klein, the story will focus on Thor and Valkyrie Rúna. The tale will detail secrets about Thanos’ dark yet strange connection to Asgard. It will come directly out of Thanos: Death Notes, an oversized Thanos one-shot that drops in November which is about the surprising revelation of a seventh infinity stone. This upcoming run will also effectively set the stage for Cates and Klein’s Thanos takeover.
In Thor #29, Thor’s baby sister Laussa has been kidnapped by, Thanos. The despicable fiend has taken her beyond what even Sif’s All-Sight can detect, forcing the God of Thunder to enlist the aid of the Valkyrie, Rúna in order to find and rescue her. And though Rúna is well acquainted with the unknown, together, they must dive so deep into Hel’s frozen depths that the truths regarding the untold horrors from Asgard’s violent past make rock their very foundations.
“There is something incredibly inventive and bold about Donny and Nic’s Thor, and it’s been an absolute delight to guest-write a story for this run,” Grønbekk said in a press release from Marvel. “It’s turning out to be just the kind of thing I love – big swings, solid character moments and deeply human solutions. Also, Nic is impossibly good. There is a special kind of joy to see his pages come together. I don’t think I’ve ever had this much fun making comics!”
