Thor: Ragnarok opens in North America today and Amazon is celebrating Thorsday with three free graphic novels featuring Thor from Marvel. No strings at all.
Today, November 2 only, get these three classic Thor adventures FREE on Kindle.
Thor by J. Michael Straczynski Vol. 1 is written by J. Michael Straczynski with art by Olivier Coipel and collects Thor (2007) #1-6. Returned to the pantheon of great Marvel heroes, the Asgardian God of Thunder is reunited with the mortal form of Dr. Don Blake. Together, they must reckon with the legacy of the mythic Norse kingdom and the awakening of its immortal heroes – but in a world that may not want them back!
Thor: God of Thunder Vol. 1 is written by Jason Aaron with art by Esad Ribic collects Thor: God of Thunder #1-5. In the distant past, Thor follows the bloody wake of murdered gods. In the present, the Thunder God discovers a forgotten cave that echoes with the cries of tortured gods! And thousands of years from now, the last god-king of a ruined Asgard makes his final stand against the God Butcher’s beserker legions. As three Thors from three eras race to stop the God Butcher, the full extent of his vicious scheme takes terrifying shape!
Thor Visionaries: Walter Simonson Vol. 3 collects Walt Simonson‘s work from Thor #360-369. It was a time of magic… Few people have ever left their mark on one character quite the way Walter Simonson has. His work on the Mighty Thor swept the Norse God of Thunder to heights never before seen and rarely achieved in his wake. Spanning epic tales of heroism and treachery, love and war, Simonson’s work is often considered the definitive Thor. From the majesty and mystery of fabled Asgard to the gritty streets of New York City, Thor was never the same.

Earlier this year, electro-pop sensation Lights revealed the details of her next project, Skin&Earth – an album and comic book series written and illustrated entirely by Lights herself. The monthly comic book series kicked off in July, with new music released alongside each issue, leading into the release of Skin&Earth, Lights’ new full-length studio album on Warner Bros. Records in September.
Now, for an extremely limited time, Dynamite Entertainment is offering the first issue digitally for just a dime! Issues 2-4 are also available for just $1.99 each!
The comic series follows a young woman, En – a reflection of Lights herself – as she struggles to find hope in a hopeless world. Caught between romance and cults, gods and mortals, En is led down a dark path by new friends/lovers into a twisted fantasy world, forcing her to dig within and find the strength to overcome. Set in a post-apocalyptic future where corporations rule, Skin&Earth is an adventurous tale of loneliness and deceit, but ultimately becomes one of self-discovery and independence.
Skin&Earth #5 is out Wednesday, November 15th, with the sixth and final issue available for preorder through your local comic book retailer.
Lezhin Comics, South Korea’s leading platform for paid comics, now offers Danzi, a look into the family trauma and cultural norms shaping a 31-year-old Korean artist who also goes by the pseudonym Danzi.
Danzi cast an outsized shadow in the Korean peninsula because of its unflinching look at the patriarchal foundation of one Korean family as perpetuated by the author’s narcissistic mother. The characters are her family, but the struggles are singularly the main character, Danzi’s, to bear alone.
But now, in simple but gripping panels, Danzi lays out her childhood as she remembers it. Danzi calls her work, “a love letter to its creator” – but it is more than that: “Danzi” is a lion’s roar from a church mouse.
In Korea, the title has inspired wide critical acclaim as well as sympathizing recommendations in English-language subreddits dedicated to those struggling with the aftermath of being raised by narcissists.
Danzi says she plans to show the comic to her family upon it’s completion. For the rest of us, the comic is being released weekly on the Lezhin Comics platform. The first 23 comics are available at no cost.
