Paramount and Marvel have detailed the Best Buy Exclusive edition of the 2011 blockbuster Thor, which is set to street on September 13th.
The Best Buy edition will come packaged as a Blu-ray/DVD/digital copy combo pack with alternate red-hued cover art. The back of the package will feature an image from the comic book "Journey into Mystery" #83, which introduced the character to readers back in 1962. The vintage cover was drawn by legendary Marvel artists Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnot.
As an added bonus, pre-orders made on Bestbuy.com will come with a one-month subscription to Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited (a $9.99 value). The retailer is currently taking pre-orders for Thor at the price of $29.99.
Huh? A tall chiselled guy with long blonde hair, a red cape, a winged helmet early on, a hammer, and round plates on his chest. How does that not look like Thor? I don't follow. I thought the casting and costume were perfect.
For those not informed, the cover is actually the final theatrical one sheet that was printed for display in theaters. I for one am a fan of the simplicity and I'll definitely be grabbing this from Best Buy day one!
