What better thing to do on Thursday/Thorsday/the premiere of Thor: Love and Thunder, than to talk about the best Thor comics?

Popverse video producer Ashley V. Robinson is grabbing Mjolnir by the handle and declaring the mightiest stories of the Asgardian thunder god (and goddess). Some old favorites are there, as well as some new ones - with creators such as Walter Simonson, Jason Aaron, and Russell Dauterman name-checked - sometimes even more than once.

So here you go - Popverse's top 5 Thor comics ahead of Thor: Love and Thunder.
