Marvel is pleased to announce that Thor #1 Second Printing Coipel Variant has sold out at Diamond (though copies may be available at the retail level)…and the issue will return for a third printing! Featuring a black & white sketch version of superstar Michael Turner's red hot Thor #1 cover (also available as a full color poster), Thor #1 Third Printing Turner Sketch Variant will arrive in stores to meet the overwhelming demand for the God Of Thunder's return!

"We're excited to see such a strong response from critics, fans and retailers to this electrifying re-launch of Thor," said David Gabriel, Senior Vice President of Sales & Publishing Circulation. "Not only was this the number one book in July, but we've now sold well over 200,000 copies, reminding fans why Thor is one of the most enduring Marvel characters. And if you've enjoyed the series thus far, just wait till Iron Man and Thor battle it out in Thor #3!"

The critics can't stop raving about the series, with Newsarama.Com's Troy Brownfield exclaiming, "With intelligent writing, great art, and a renewed sense of vision, Thor is definitely succeeding."

Superstar writer JMS and red hot artist Olivier Coipel continue their thrilling rejuvenation of Thor in Thor #3, as the titular hero confronts his former ally Iron Man. How will the two deal with the effects of Civil War? Let's just say that's neither one is getting out of there without a few scratches!
