If you’ve been following writer/artist Walt Simonson’s second take at the Norse god Thor at IDW then you’ll know how great it is and how this Thor is a very different beast to Marvel’s own better known God of Thunder. Ragnarök: The Breaking of Helheim #3 continues to follow a post-Ragnarök Thor as he sets about freeing the slaves of Helheim in a preview of today’s issue. With John Workman on letterer and Laura Martin on colors.
As the Great Enemies plot to destroy the God of Thunder, the last of their ancient foes, Thor fights to free slaves laboring in a deadly mine on the rim of Helheim, the kingdom of the dead. The recovered ore is being turned into magical sword blades that will enable the despotic ruler of the upper levels of Helheim to conquer the Dusk Lands with fire and blood.
