This announcement was supposed to come at the end of Thor Week, but some technical glitches here at IAT really threw me, Vault, and the rest of the gang for a loop this weekend! Now that we have everything in working order, I’d like to invite all of you to check out IAT’s new sibling, The Daily Thor.
First, just a quick update on the technical problems we experienced over the weekend. An unknown error caused some glitches in the files that control the site and we lost some functionality on the site from Thursday on into Sunday. You all have my apologies for any issues you had while trying to access the site over the weekend. I hate whenever a site I want is down and I especially hate it when it’s one of mine! A couple of the site features are still offline (like the galleries), but all the checklists and the forums are available now (are you an IAT forum member yet? Click here to sign up!).
Anyway, that little snafu also put us behind on another major announcement. If you read my Marvel Universe Loki & Frost Giant review, you know that I’ve recently discovered that, despite reading comics for nearly thirty years, I knew next to nothing about Thor and his corner of the Marvel Universe. I hate when that happens. And I tend to compulsively read up and learn about the things after it does.
I read up on some Thor history to get the basics and I talked to friends who were far bigger Thor fans than I. One of them agreed to share his various Masterworks, Omnibuses, and trades with me so I could catch up. I even called up my comic shop to request some of the uncollected back issues and also added the current titles to my pull list.
I realized that, with a little help from my friends, I had access to almost every issue of Thor’s primary title and it gave me a crazy idea. I could read Thor from the beginning! I’d start with his debut in the summer of 1962 and read through until I caught up to the comics that were shipping now. It sounded like a good idea. Then, I thought, what if I blogged about it as I went?
And so that crazy idea turned into The Daily Thor. We did get off to late start because the glitches affected both sites, but Daily Thor kicked off last weekend and I’m three issues in as I’m writing this. I’ve enjoyed the book so far and I’m having a blast with the write-ups. I hope you’ll like reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them.
Ideally, there’ll be no changes to the IAT schedule. We have some site crossover planned on upcoming Thursdays, but other than that ItsAllTrue will continue to bring you great content. Daily Thor is more of my pet project and I love talking toys too much to stop writing articles and reviews here, but I do hope that, if you enjoy my writing, you’ll hop over to Daily Thor, and check out what I have to say as I learn everything I can about Thor from the beginning to today!
