Thor: Blood Oath

 THBO   (Marvel, 2005-2006)

™ and © Marvel Characters, Inc.

Harken, ye dwellers of Midgard, to a saga of the Aesar and the trials of their lives—trial being the operative word here. It seems the Warriors Three, Fandral, Hogun, and Volstagg have gone fishing and dispatched a gigantic mackrel who turned out to be a shape shifting giant named Holth, son of Gnives, who now calls for justice. All the Three have to bring are three apples, the skin of a pig, a spear, a sword and three shouts on a hill when the task is done and justice is served.

Unfortunately, the apples are guarded by a giant eagle, the pig is guarded by Hercules, the spear belongs to earth’s greatest warrior—Chulain, who is not likely to give it up and the sword called Grasscutter belongs to the dead and they might object a bit to letting it go as well. The hill is the tomb of Toth, guarded by his sons whose sole purpose in life is to keep the tomb silent. Finally, Thor is to go with them on this impossible quest, but he is not to use his hammer.

Needless to say, the Asgardian justice system and the treaties they have with the Giants leave a lot to be desired. A thoughtful tale brought to us from the good ol’ days when Odin lived and Doctor Blake had the hots for Nurse Foster by Michael Avon Oeming and Scott Kolins.
