Thor, God of Thunder-Weird Comics-1940

A far cry from the long-haired, caped and Kirby-suited Marvel Universe Thor, this more or less naked Norseman appeared in WEIRD COMICS back when Jack was just starting in comics. To be fair, in earlier issues, he did have a cape and a helmet. In later issues, however, the series continued as DYNAMITE THOR in which he became a more standard, costumed hero. Credited to "Wright Lincoln," possibly a house pseudonym, the art was better than most in the early days of comics.
