Thor #347 - Walt Simonson art & cover

Walt Simonson
Thor v1 #347, 1984 - In rescuing fair Lorelei, Thor and his comrade Roger Willis must pass through the fabled gates of Faerie. Detail and precision are lacking in Walt Simonson's cover, carrying over into certain panels inside as well. A few faces and figures (page 12 for example) appear hurriedly drawn. Still, most of the art maintains interest thanks to the Simonson's dynamic layouts (see interior page shown below). Among the story's artistic highlights: the cold, imposing fortress on the opening splash and the beautifully ornate gates on page 10. This is number 22 of 41 Thor issues with Simonson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Simonson or Thor issues. See also this blog's Walt Simonson checklist.
