Page from THOR: GODSTORM #1 by Steve Rude and Mike Royer
Mexican copy of CUENTOS DE BRUJAS (TALES OF WITCHES) #178, reprinting the first appearance of Thor from JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY #83. Cover by Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott.

Comparing the two, you can see how Colletta simplified the skyline in the background
Jack Kirby’s pencils to the splash page to THOR #152.
Kirby’s border notes say:

DESTROYER HAS RAISED HIS DISINTEGRATOR—HE IS CONFUSED—IT WON’T WORK
A page from the Thor story in JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY #123 by Jack Kirby and Vince Colletta.
Some of Kirby’s border notes remain:
LOKI GRABS SCEPTER—HE YELLS-AT LAST—I’M KING! THOR AND WARRIORS OVERCOME WITH GRIEF
LOKI SAYS-I COMMAND NOW! KNEEL IN ALLEGIANCE! ABS. MAN BACK TO NORMAL—EYES SCEPTER
HE GRABS IT—LOKI HANGS ON
Some rough inking on this page from Vinnie. And it looks like there was another figure in Panel 1 to Thor’s right that was erased rather than inked.
Thor promo piece by John Romita Jr and Tim Townsend. This is the first piece that Romita did when he took over THOR.
A page from THOR #175 by Jack Kirby and Bill Everett.
Kirby’s border note reads;
YOU ARE NOW MY SUBJECT
