Official Press Release

Thor #7 and #8 have both sold out at Diamond and Marvel is going back to press on a Must-Have collecting both scorching-hot issues in Thor: Search For Odin Must-Have.

Writer J. Michael Straczynski is joined by special guest artist Marko Djurdjevic (Daredevil) for a two-part story collected in Thor: Search For Odin Must-Have which finds Thor searching for his father Odin. Hoping to restore Odin to his former life as Thor has already done for many Asgardians, the Thunder God may be in for the fight of his recently restored life as he finds his father locked in a battle that neither of their combined efforts can hope to win.

Thor’s return to the Marvel Universe continues to wow critics and fans alike as the Thunder God’s new ongoing series has been hotter than lightning.

Jesse Schedeen of IGN.com’s review of Thor #8 called it “another terrific issue in what is quickly developing into one of Marvel's best series.”

Adam Chapman of Comixtreme.com said “JMS delivers a powerful script, and Djurdjevic captures it brilliantly with his artwork. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!”

Thor: Search For Odin Must-Have is the latest example of why Thor is one of the hottest characters at Marvel right now so don’t miss your chance to pick up this marvelous must-have.
