Comment

In Nornheim, Balder and the Warriors Three demand that Karnilla release them. She readily complies. Realizing it is time for the Odinsleep, the Asgardians hope to hurry home to thwart Loki but find Mountain Giants, trolls, gnomes and demons already mobilizing under Loki's command.
Meanwhile, Sif locates Thor on Earth. They return to Asgard to find their people at war with Loki's armies. Sif heads to Odin's sleep chamber while a troll's dragon seizes Thor. During the battle, Loki steals away to Odin's chamber where he abuses his title as prince to force the guards to take Sif prisoner, then seizes the Odinring from the sleeping Odin's finger.
Hogun rescues Thor but trumpeters signal the battle's end as Loki dons regal attire and declares himself ruler of Asgard due to the ring.
The Asgardians bow to him. At first, Thor refuses but told that Sif is a prisoner, he also acknowledges Loki as his king.

About Jack Kirby

Jack Kirby ( August 28, 1917 – February 6, 1994), born Jacob Kurtzberg, was an American comic book artist, writer, and editor widely regarded as one of the medium's major innovators and one of its most prolific and influential creators. Kirby grew up poor in New York City, and learned to draw cartoon figures by tracing characters from comic strips and editorial cartoons. He entered the nascent comics industry in the 1930s, drawing various comics features under different pen names, including Jack Curtiss, before ultimately settling on Jack Kirby. In 1940, he and writer-editor Joe Simon created the highly successful superhero character Captain America for Timely Comics, predecessor of Marvel Comics. During the 1940s, Kirby, generally teamed with Simon, created numerous characters for that company and for National Comics, later to become DC Comics.

mtlevy Beautiful page - I have a bias to 3 panels - it is a great balance between a splash and a typical panel page
