‘Thor’ brings heat in Exchange, Marvel’s latest military-only free comic book

Arriving now after the release of “Thor: The Dark World,” the Asgardian Thunder God will star in the new, military-exclusive, free comic book from Marvel Custom Solutions and the Army & Air Force Exchange Service.

The 32-page comic features Thor defending New York City from the fearsome Frost Giant, Ymir, in a new adventure by the creative team of writer William Harms and artist Tom Grummett. The free comic also includes an all-new cover by legendary Thor artist Walt Simonson.

Titled “Deep Freeze,” the action-packed story features Thor as he fights to keep the citizens of Manhattan safe from the frozen menace while Jarvis, butler to the Avengers, heroically attempts to lead a mother and her young daughter through the icy battlefield of Stark Tower to safety. Can Thor turn the heat on in the Big Apple or will winter come early this year?

“It’s always exciting when the Exchange and Marvel come together to offer these free comic books for Airmen and their families,” said Pete Alaniz, Luke Air Force Base Exchange general manager.“This is the 16th edition of this military-exclusive comic book and our hope is that service members will enjoy this one as much as they have the others over the past eight years.”

All of us at Marvel owe a debt of gratitude to our real heroes, the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces, said Bill Rosemann, Marvel editor.

“And while audiences around the world will thrill to the Thunder God’s exploits in ‘Thor: The Dark World,’ only service members and their families will have access to this all-new, all-awesome comic book,” he said. “It’s the least we can do for the men and women who bravely fight for the freedoms we all hold so dear.”

“Thor: Deep Freeze” arrived at the Luke Exchange in mid-November and is free for all Airmen and their families.
