Journey into Mystery # 122
Absorbing Man and Thor take up where they left off in combat, and Loki watches all while plotting and scheming. You see, Absorbing Man works for Loki, which may seem like a good deal on paper, but actually kind of blows. Loki is promising Absorbing Man a seat as his right hand man when he, you know, takes over the universe. Dude doesn't seem to grasp the concept of baby steps.
And in the backup tale, Thor is still on a boat...or something. I probably shouldn't have taken a three four month hiatus from reading these and then expect to know what's going on. Better luck next issue!
Thor's thoughts on the paparazzi.
