It’s the penultimate day of our salute to the King.
Add Walt Simonson to the list. His birthday is 9/2.
I mention this because Kirby and Simonson are the greatest of Thor artists. Kirby co-created him. Simonson perfected him.
So it’s time for Compare Your Thors! Below are 13 Thor Covers by Kirby. And click here for 13 Simonson Thor Covers.

(Here’s our usual caveat: These are subjective lists and not meant to be definitive. This is not a ranking of any kind. This is pretty much what I dig and you may feel very differently. So, rather than beef about a cover you don’t see, instead join in the fun and share your own choices in the comments section or in whatever social-media thread you saw this.)
All covers from the awesome Grand Comics Database.
