About Thorus: Lord Of The Super Gods
“Welcome to the higher vibration of the 10th Dimension, realm of Thorus, Lord of the Super Gods!” Are you into over the top 70s style cosmic epics of gods at war? Then Thorus is for you. 32 pages of pulse-pounding action introducing Thorus and his fellow Super Gods: Jade Jaguar, Mother Eartha, the evil Vertithrax and much more! Any resemblance to the works of Jack Kirby and Hanna Barbera are purely intentional.
