Ask Chris #183: Thor And The Casket of Ancient Winters

Ask Chris art by Erica Henderson

Q: Since you hate Frozen so much and are stuck in an ice storm, what are some good stories about snow and ice? -- @prograpslady

A: Those harsh words I had for Frozen are going to follow me to my grave, aren't they? Listen, I'm glad you like your little movie about ice puns and slapstick snowmen and I would never take that enjoyment away from you. I just like things that are, you know, good. It's not necessarily that you're wrong, it's just that I have more sophisticated and refined tastes, which is why I like the finer things that cinema has to offer. Like, say, any movie that prominently features a dirtbike or karate.

Anyway, it's true: As I write this, I'm bundled up in a Batman snuggie (the blanket with sleeves and a utility belt) with snow on the ground and ice on the roads. This, of course, is pretty unusual for my home state of South Carolina, so I've been thinking all day about stories where a bitter winter plays a central part -- and really, there's one that stands out right at the top of the list. From Walter Simonson's Thor, the story of Malekith and the Casket of Ancient Winters.

The 10 Most Awesome Moments In Walter Simonson’s ‘Thor’

thor00

This week, Marvel releases an absolutely massive omnibus that collects over a thousand pages of Walter Simonson's epic run on Thor, a book that I believe isn't just the best run on Thor, but the single greatest run on comics of all time.

That's a pretty bold statement when you consider that it's up against stuff like Alan Moore's Swamp Thing and over a hundred issues of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby on Fantastic Four, but I stand by it. In his five years as the book's writer, Simonson -- along with fellow creators Sal Buscema and John
