KRAKADOOM! Truly, we are thrilled and honored to have been interviewed by Geek & Sundry – the questions posed by Tom Pinchuk were worthy in the extreme, and we had a fantastic time talking Thor comics with him.
If you’re new to The Lightning and the Storm, you may have a few questions. Who are we? Where should you start listening? Is there really such a thing as Frog Thor?
Who we are: We are Miles Stokes of Jay & Miles X-Plain the X-Men and Elisabeth Allie of GeekCraft Expo, and The Lightning and the Storm is our 13-episode love letter to Walter Simonson’s epic 1980s run of The Mighty Thor. Listen to our podcast for commentary, epic dramatizations of key scenes, and our picks for things like the Hel’s Haberdashery Award (best Asgardian headgear)!
Today, we recorded our donors-only preview episode: glorious discourse on The Mighty Thor #356 and #370, the two fill-in issues that take place during Walter Simonson’s run on the book! It was a ton of fun, and I think folks are going to enjoy the Hel out of it.
In about a week, we and our producer Kyle Yount will have the episode ready and will send it out to all of our $5+ donors. (If you’d like to be one of those, it’s totally not too late!)
Then, on May 7th, we’ll release our first actual episode, covering The Mighty Thor #337-340: Simonson’s first arc and the first appearance of Beta Ray Bill. SO EXCITED.
Donors, keep an eye on your email next weekend – verily, epic glories await!
