In the uttermost depths of Helheim, Thor and Ratatosk reach their goal and discover the fate of the ruler of the dead, Hel herself. She offers a bargain to the God of Thunder, but is any bargain with the daughter of Loki worth the price? And Ratatosk makes a discovery that threatens to break all bargains, something hidden in Helheim that even Hel herself fears.
Walter Simonson’s Epic tale of Norse intrigue
In the end, the gods gathered together and met their
foes on the Battle Plain of Vigrid.
There, so the stories tell, the gods and their great enemies slaughtered
each other, the stars fell from the sky, Midgard itself sank into the
all-encompassing ocean, and the Nine worlds were destroyed. In this issue, Thor
hears a voice out of the past and learns that not all the old stories are true,
and that the path before him now leads to Helheim, the land of the Dead.
Walter Simonson, legendary creator of Star Slammers, Manhunter and the Alien film
adaptation (with Archie Goodwin), and the definitive version (after Stan and
Jack) of Marvel’s Thor, presents the
next thrilling chapter of his own post-Ragnarok Thor saga!
