Hey Look, There Might Be A Secret Wars Book That's Worth Reading!

Making no bones about it, I haven't seen one bit of promo material for Secret Wars that interests me. The entire event sounds like something guided by Marvel's publicity and editorial arm moreso than creative. But hey, I am a sucker for multiple Thors...and Chris Sprouse art.

Announced today comes Thors, written by current Thor scribe Jason Aaron, with art by Sprouse. The idea behind it? The Thors of various realities are teaming up to tackle a mystery, this team includes Ultimate Universe Thor and Beta Ray Bill.

Here's Aaron on the upcoming mini-series:

This is not about the apocalypse, it’s about closing cases.This is basically me doing a cop story, but with hammers instead of guns. This is me getting to do 'Homicide: Life on the Street' with lots of cosmic cops. It’s every version of Thor you can imagine, all walking beats, solving murders, getting yelled at by their commissioner and blowing off steam at their local Thor-cop bar.

He also added:

This book is probably more of a direct tie-in to the main 'Secret War' series than a lot of the other tie-ins you’ll see, in that the role of the Thors is something that is set-up quite extensively in 'Secret Wars' #2. We’ll be seeing a few different corners of Battleworld in this series. The Thors go where the action is.
In the first issue, our Thors pick up a doozy of a murder case, one that sends them all scrambling, and ultimately has a few of them asking questions that may shake the foundations of everything they think they know.

Thors is expected to release in June.
