“–If The Thunder Be Gone!”
A Stan (The Man) Lee and Jack (King) Kirby festival of fabulous Fantasy! Delineation: Vince Colletta/ Lettering: Artie Simek
Thor makes his circus debut, wearing a cheap knockoff Thor costume supplied by the Ringmaster. They perform their show and Thor does okay. In the Audience, Thor spies Jane Foster on a date and he is gladdened to see that she has moved on.
After the show, the heist begins. It is like Ocean’s 11 but with a clown and a snake and a former Thunder God. The goal of the heist is a massive 20-ton statue of a golden bull, showcased in a local museum. Thor’s job is to lift it.
As the gang makes their getaway, some guards catch up with the crew and attempt to shoot the fleeing criminals. The gunshots somehow lift the hypnosis from Thor’s mind, but in his disorientation, he drops the bull, pinning Princess Python! As Thor wonders what do to, the guards charge into the room, guns blazing!
