THOR ANNUAL 2001 (2001)

Hercules, Beta Ray Bill and Thor are sent by Zeus to take on Desak, the Destroyer of Gods.

Desak doesn’t like Gods because they’re usually dicks. I agree with him. But he decides that these three (yes, Herc and Beta Ray are referred to as “Gods” in this story–despite that Bill is an alien and Hercules is a demigod) are fine people so he will leave them alone.

Dan Jurgens is at the top of his game at this time of his career, and he’s doing good work on Thor. This could have been dumb and pointless, but it’s done well and reads like a mini-epic in the grand tradition of the best Thor runs.
