THIS WEEK’S HIGHLIGHTS AT THIRD EYE COMICS FOR WEDNESDAY 5/18/22

The brawl continues in THOR #25 this week and new Thor creators give us a glimpse into the possible future of the character for this 60th anniversary celebration! 

Last week DONNY CATES kicked off the most epic Avenger vs Avenger battle in recent years in HULK VS THOR BANNER OF WAR ALPHA! Cates is the first person to be simultaneously writing the main Hulk and Thor titles since Stan Lee and Len Wein in the 70s! So of course with the 60th anniversaries of both of these characters coinciding this year, Cates says he plans to deliver "the $^@#&%! craziest fight that Marvel Comics has ever seen". And so far he has delivered! If you skipped the first issue of this epic battle you'll definitely want to scoop it soon so you don't miss a second of this off-the-wall insane event! 

"BANNER OF WAR" PART TWO!

The 60th Anniversary celebration - and Thor and Hulk's epic rivalry - continues in the second installment of the crossover between the HULK and THOR series! Banner's newfound control of his rage is prolonging this fight more than Thor expected, and with Banner holding his own, Thor must get creative. Odin's breakthrough look into Banner's psyche seems to slow the violence, but will it be enough? Additionally, new creators to the THOR title bring glimpses into the possible futures of Thor and his friends!
