Thor, God of Thunder-Pierce Rice-1940

 Minimalist cartooning taken to the extremes--giant panels, virtually no backgrounds, all with a pre-war version of the Thunder God that really isn't all that different than the one that would be popular decades later.

  2. Well, the artist, as stated above, is Pierce Rice. GCD lists credits inking to Arturo Cazeneuve as per Jerry bails identification. The story is from a 1940 issue of WEIRD.
