Fear Itself #1 Variant Cover (April 2011)

Book One of Marvel's Fear Itself series featured a number of great variant covers, including this stunning homage to the cover of Thor #292 with Odin standing over the defeated Thunder God. The conflict between Odin and Thor/Asgard and Midgard/Gods and Mortals is a key theme in Fear Itself, so I'm sure that some of the vintage Thor issues served as valuable reference material for series writer Matt Fraction and artist Stuart Immonen. Incidentally, I'm not sure how Marvel managed to misspell Immonen's last name in the indicia at the bottom of this promotional page, but at least they got it right in the published edition.
