The Lightning Round

For this commission I was asked to riff on the cover to Thor #411 where the God of Thunder goes up against the Juggernaut. This was a classic from the Ron Frenz era of Thor. As much as I love the Walt Simonson run it wasn't until much later that I came to appreciate the art stylings of Mr. Frenz. He was obviously, channeling Kirby when he worked on this series and he really captured the weight, power, and dynamism of "The King's" art. Here's the original cover to this Clash of the Titans:
