Balder the Brave v1 #1, 1985 - One of the more interesting supporting characters from Thor, Balder the Brave solos for the first time in his own limited series. Walt Simonson provides a somewhat busy but splendid cover for the premiere issue, including what seems to be a new (Jack Kirby-inspired?) costume design. Sadly, his contribution ends there as the story pages are tasked to Sal Buscema. This is number 1 of 4 Balder the Brave issues with Simonson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Simonson or Balder the Brave issues. See also this blog's Walt Simonson checklist.

New format tweaks continue, hopefully improving the site. All posts now have large scans of both covers and interior pages. All scans are now captioned, credited to the featured artist on this blog. Any feedback is appreciated.
