Journey Into Mystery Annual #1 (1964)

Thor versus Hercules!  That’s really it.  About a third of the entire story is just battle.

And that is NOT a complaint. I will say that the number of people who can kinda lift Mjolnir is a little ridiculous.

What’s remarkable is how much Walt Simonson’s layouts and figures on Thor, twenty years later, look like Kirby’s in this annual.

Very fun issue, even if 2/3 of it reprints old material.

Also: A map!
