As announced at Marvel’s Next Big Thing panel at New York Comic Con, Thor is getting a new creative team and a new #1 in January 2020. Writer Donny Cates and artist Nic Klein are taking over the title, taking the God of Thunder through adventure and mystery, facing off against the Black Winter.
Artist Nic Klein says:
I’m incredibly excited and honored to be working on this with Donny. Thor is one of my favorite comic book characters so I really tried to up my game to do Thor and all of Asgard justice.
Thor has been a tough character for me to wrap my head around. For some reason I’ve never really got into his books. I’m a big fan of Cates’ writing though so I’m definitely going to give this a shot.
Writer Donny Cates added:
In all my wildest dreams, I could never have imagined a world in which I was worthy of writing Thor. From Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, all the way to the legendary run I am so foolishly following by the great Jason Aaron, it is beyond an honor to enter the golden halls of Asgard, and to pave the path (Far beyond the fields we know…) for the Thunder God himself. Know that you will have my best, true believers. For all of you. For Asgard. Forever.
Thor #1 features a cover by Oliver Coipel. It’s set for release in January 2020.
