Reading Room: TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED "Magic Hammer"

One more pre-Marvel Thor-themed story by co-creator Jack Kirby!
Ironically, published in Tales of the Unexpected #16 (1957), a DC Comic!
AFAIK, Jack Kirby penciled and inked this particular story.
(Usually, he just penciled, since he was so freakin' FAST, doing 3-5 pages a day!)
The Thor in this tale is visually-similar to his villainous "Thor impostor" from The Sandman story in Adventure Comics #75
 The Mjolnir, however, is a dead ringer for the Marvel Comics' Thor's mallet...
BTW, there's a kool article in the Jack Kirby Collector about the various versions of Thor conceived by the King.
You can find it HERE!
If you want to see the original, non-Marvel Golden Age Thor, his complete adventures can be found in our brother blog, Hero & Heroine Histories™.
Thor: the Dark World opens tonite!
Don't miss it!
