In the end, the gods gathered together and met their foes on the Battle Plain of Vigrid. There, so the stories say, 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.

But not all the old stories are true. Thor survived as did most of the Enemies while the gods went down to defeat and the Nine Worlds became one vast land of desolation. Now, in his search for revenge, the last god standing hears the voice of one long dead and it sets him on a new course.

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-Ragnarök Thor saga!

Thor races to reach the rim of the dead lands and escape the lethal vengeance of Hel, pursued by the beasts of Helheim and the numberless dead. With his destruction almost upon him, the God of Thunder gathers the fate of all of Helheim into his gauntleted hands as Mjolnir, the greatest weapon of the gods, speaks in a voice of thunder across the Dusklands.

As Thor travels deeper into the monstrous canyons of Helheim, he encounters a wild pack of ferocious wolves, larger than any he has seen before. They bear him a terrible grudge and reveal a hitherto unknown secret of the final battle between the gods and their enemies, a secret that has stretched across the centuries since the fall of the gods. And it could spell death-the real death-for Thor.

Thor begins his descent into the Kingdom of the Dead, but finds the way blocked by a titanic Hall rising before him on the rim of Helheim. Guarded by both the living and the dead and ruled by the iron hand of a would-be god, it hides beneath its deepest dungeons a secret powerful enough to shatter the very foundations of the Dusklands.
