Thor Annual #4, 1971

Has there ever been a more goofy logo for a super-hero comic than this? Bizarrely inappropriate for the cosmic angst presented within. At this point Marvel was using its annuals as reprint vehicles, and this is no exception: this reprints Thor’s battle with that most Kosmic Kirby menace, Ego the Living Planet from Thor #131 and 132.
