JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY #83 (1962): Thor!

The first Thor comic has a great cover.  Iconic.  
 
What’s inside?  There’s the neat little transformation scene…
Jack did love drawing transformations, though.  In these early Marvel comics, in addition to Thor, Thing would go back and forth from rock to flesh pretty regularly.  And then of course there was Hulk.
But the rest of the issue is basically just Thor fighting some weird Thing-like aliens.  
Creators: Stan Lee and Jack Kirby
First appearances: Thor
Grade: B+.  Solid origin story, even if modern Thor has separated the God from Don Blake and made most of these early adventures irrelevant.
