For the past several years, Marvel’s Thor comics told an epic, sweeping story of heroism and feminism. Of course, we’re talking about the story of Jane Foster who, at first mysteriously, took over the mantle of Thor and did so as she was simultaneously battling cancer.

The beautiful, exciting, multi-year story arc ended earlier this year, and around that time Sideshow Collectibles released a gorgeous, now sold-out statue of the character.

To commemorate all of that, Sideshow sat down with two of the people primarily responsible for the run, writer Jason Aaron and artist Russell Dauterman, to talk about the story and the inspirations behind it. We are excited to exclusively share the video with you.

If that doesn’t make you want to hunt down that statue and read/reread the run that began in October 2014 and went through March 2018, we don’t know what will.

You can view the now sold-out statue here, and browse other Sideshow Collectibles here.


  • you mean the run about a hammer junkie who knows using is killing her but, won’t put it down. the woman who was hyped up to die gloriously and came back less than a full issue later.

    Yeah she’s basically a drug addict that was able to quit because cosmic shennanigans.

    • Does she end up going to rehab, turning her life around, and talking to high school students about why friends don’t let friends do hammer?

      • No, in fact her dealer seems even more intent on widening his target demographic with the amount of hammer he’s getting. seems like she’ll be back on it in no time!
