Mjolnir Rampages the Ten Realms in Donny Cates and Nic Klein’s “God of Hammers”

The God of Hammers is about to be unleashed! Next month, Donny Cates continues his action-packed Asgardian saga with a brand-new story, and artist Nic Klein is back for twists and turns that not even the All-Father can possibly be ready for in Thor!

The story will provide payoffs to a plot that’s been building up since the very beginning of Cates and Klein’s run—the secret legacy of Thor’s mighty weapon Mjolnir! Mjolnir, the powerful Uru hammer that Thor has wielded in battle for centuries, has gone missing! And nobody, not even the all-seeing Lady Sif, is able to locate it. So Thor must turn to the last person he wants help from: Odin. For until the hammer is found, nobody is safe! 

Making his return as series artist, Klein will also make his debut as the series’ new main cover artist. In addition, the issue will have variant covers by superstar artists Gary Frank and Mahmud Asrar as well as Ema Lupacchino’s Infinity Saga Variant Cover. Check out all four covers now plus the newly revealed cover of January’s Thor #21, Part 3 of “God of Hammers.” Be there when the fatal prophecy of the God of Hammers begins in Thor #19 on November 17!
