Mighty Thorby Jason Aaron & Russell Dauterman

Can she be Thor at the expense of the life of Jane? Not only is Jane’s transformation a real piece of modern comics history, but it kicks off one of Marvel’s most critically acclaimed titles. It’s a must-read for comic book fans of all kinds – if they be worthy.

Thor by J. Michael Strazynski & Olivier Coilpel
JMS’s run on Thor is a must-read for any fan of the character and his mythos. And while it’s not directly referenced in Love & Thunder, it tells the comic book version of how Asgard ended up on Midgard. So it’s kind of a big deal in the history of the character, and it clearly helped shape the MCU narrative.

All-New All-Different Avengers by Mark Waid & Mahmud A. Asrar
Need more Jane Foster? You can see her team up with some Marvel faves like Ms. Marvel, Nova, Vision, Captain America, and more.

Sif: Journey into Mystery by Kelly Sue DeConnick & Kathryn Immonen
Did you see this movie and think “that was great, but there could have been more Lady Sif”? Me too. Journey into Mystery revamped the Lady Sif’s character back in 2011, and the results were incredible. Sif is reeling after her body was taken over by Loki, and she seeks out some magic to help her get back to feeling herself. Only those powers turn her into a Berserker. Can she manage her anger and point it toward helping the people of Asgard?
