THE MIGHTY THOR #12
Plot by EXCITER
Written by ALAN MOORE
Art by MIKE MIGNOLA
“ROYALTY IN EXILE”
Götterdämmerung: The Twilight of the Gods; the war that engulfs the Nine Realms.
Thor and his allies have fled to what is now ironically one of their last safe havens: Jotunheim, Realm of the Frost Giants. Loki recently claimed his birthright - the throne in Utgard Palace - and, surprising many, proved himself a worthy king that inspired actual loyalty (see THE MIGHTY THOR # 7). But with Asgard fallen and it’s conquerors on the move, soon no place will be safe...
The forces arrayed against the Asgardian loyalists and Jotunheim are many. As such, they desperately need allies. Thor believes the Light Elves of Alfheim, the Dwarves of Nidavellir, and the Rock Trolls of Rike Nedenfor will answer Asgard’s call to arms... though that’s far from a certainty. He’ll need to petition them all directly, though the Trolls must take priority. Asgard granted them a new homeland on Vanaheim, and as Vanaheim just revolted, Ulik’s people are now in mortal danger. Ulik promises his warriors will fight beside the God of Thunder if he can protect the Trolls’ newly won sovereignty, but can even Thor and the Hulk defend a settlement entrenched deep within enemy territory?
At the same time, a very pregnant Sif and an emotionally conflicted Loki try to prevent Odin’s death as the lifeblood continues to seep from his stab-wound...
And in a conquered Asgard, the All-Mother Freyja has named her new general: Balder the Brave! She long favored her true-born son over his bastard step-brother Thor and his mongrel adopted brother Loki. Now the half Vanir-half Aesir Balder is finally elevated to the rank he deserves. And as Odin gifted his favored son that damnable hammer, Freyja intends to bestow upon her son an even greater gift: invulnerability! Though the ancient spell-work required to grant such a boon may be extraordinarily dangerous...

Lunella Lafayette has spent nearly her entire life as the focus of attention. She was always the smartest person in the room. The joke was that she corrected the technique of the doctor that had delivered her. But now, Lunella needs to pick someone to help and it’s no longer all about her.
Who will she pick? Find out in this oversized finale. We’ve included vintage panels by Devil creator Jack Kirby which blend in with the story perfectly.
