Jack Kirby’s cosmic designs were always fantastic. Between his work on beings like Galactus, the Silver Surfer, and the New Gods, Kirby knew how to make things look otherworldly and impressive. His work on this Odin here is no exception. Even if readers don’t read the dialogue between father and son, Odin’s garb alone indicates his station above everyone else in the room. It’s an impressive outfit. I can’t stop staring at his gloves, trying to figure out what they do and if they have another purpose besides simply clothing Odin’s body. It’s a wonderful design.
Stan Lee’s Thor Speak perfectly molds itself with Kirby’s images. They’re both over-the-top and grand, perfect for depicting a Norse god requesting an audience with his father. Once again, the Lee / Kirby relationship struck gold.
