Your New Look At THOR #615

Experience The Magic of Asgard In Thor: The Mighty Avenger – Double Rainbow!

Marvel is pleased to announce that both Thor: The Mighty Avenger #1 and Thor: The Mighty Avenger #2 have sold out at Diamond (though copies may be available at a retail level) and due to retailer and fan demand alike, will return with Thor: The Mighty Avenger – Double Rainbow! From the magical creative team of writer Roger Langridge and artist Chris Samnee, Thor: The Mighty Avenger – Double Rainbow reprints the first two issues of this critically acclaimed series for fans who may have missed them the first time around. Full of action, suspense, drama, romance and intrigue – it’s Thor like you’ve never seen him before!

“If you love Thor, like Thor, or heard the word “Thor” one time, you’re gonna want to give Thor: The Mighty Avenger a shot” exclaims editor, Nate Cosby. “Reading this book is better than ice cream. DOUBLE RAINBOWWWW!!!!!”

Fans and critics agree, Thor: The Mighty Avenger is a must read!

“This comic is quite possibly the best new superhero title of the year and is exactly what any lover of superheroes should be reading.” – Chad Nevett, ComicBookResources.com

“In terms of dream fulfillment, Roger Langridge and Chris Samnee seem to have made a rainbow connection, a terrific pairing of writer and cartoonist on a light, whimsical, and accessible new Thor comic. Thor: The Mighty Avenger offers a refreshing back-to-basics interpretation of the thunder god free from the confines of continuity. It’s only just begun, but it looks to revel in everything weird and wonderful about the character, and by extension, the Marvel universe.” – Paul Montgomery, iFanboy.com

“Roger Landgridge‘s writing is perfect for this series. It is fun, fast and self-contained. All you need to know is between the covers. Partner that with Chris Samnee‘s art and you’ve got magic.” – Shawn Daughhetee, HeroesOnline.com

“I’m pleased to say they haven’t slacked on the talent in this book and it is a must-read not just for the young ones, but for anyone who is a fan of the character.” – Amanda McDonald, Newsarama.com

Don’t Miss Out On CASANOVA, The Most Mind-Blowing Book Of The Century!

It’s the sold-out book everyone’s talking about, the series every critic is lauding, and the most mind-bending comic of the century—it’s Casanova! Eisner Award-winners Matt Fraction, Gabriel Bá and Fábio Moon are the masterminds behind Casanova and if you’ve missed out on a single issue of the series, now’s your chance to get caught up as Casanova #3 hits stores alongside new printings of Casanova #1 and Casanova #2.

Chronicling the mad adventures of everyone’s favorite terminally directionless, morally-unhinged secret operative, Casanova #3 finds the world bracing itself for a real-life miracle man in the form of a Buddha-imitating street magician…and Casanova Quinn swoops in and snatches the would be savior!

Here’s what the critics have to say about Casanova:

“One of the greatest and strangest comic books of the last decade…” – GQ.com

“Matt Fraction’s agile blending of hyper-dense plot and substantial characters, concepts of sexuality and identity, robots and metaphysics makes Casanova that rare comic that can use genre conventions in new and exciting ways. It crosses genre boundaries and rises above any perceived limitations. In Casanova style is not substance, substance is the new style, and what a beautiful style it is: human, thrilling, transcendent.”—Timothy Callahan, ComicBookResources.Com

“It blew my mind so hard that I have never stopped picking up the pieces.” – Laura Hudson, ComicsAlliance.com

“Casanova is a delightfully crazy sci-fi romp and a great addition to the Icon line. Don’t make the mistake of passing it up a second time.” – Jesse Schedeen, IGN.com

“Fraction doesn’t waste a single panel. In fact, he fills his pages with them, but it never feels cluttered or forcibly compressed…And Gabriel Bá handles the script perfectly with his tight, highly detailed artwork.” – Danny Djeljosevic, ComicsBulletin.com

“I am tremendously grateful to Icon for giving me so many reasons to jump into the zany world of Casanova, and will be sticking around to see what happens next. Matt Fraction and Gabriel Bá have created a comic that is supremely energetic and unique…pick Casanova up and give it a look.” – Majin Fu, AintItCoolNews.com

With Casanova’s wicked sister Zephyr in tow on the new mission, will Quinn be able to get the job done without Zephyr stabbing him in the back? Find out in Casanova #3, out this September! Plus, don’t miss your chance to catch up on the whole series in one jaw-dropping sitting when Casanova #1 Second Printing Variant and Casanova #2 Second Printing Variant hit store shelves the same day!
