In honor of the upcoming Thor movie starring the hunky Chris Hemsworth (for which I am salivating in a fashion most unbecoming), I am ecstatic to share these amazing images of the gods of Asgard by Charles Vess with you, dear reader! These beauties come to us from the back pages of Marvel Fanfare #20 from the ancient year of 1985! Above, we view the greatness that is Heimdall, guardian of the Rainbow Bridge Bifrost. Heimdall is played by Idris Elba in the movie, a casting move that caused a tiny l’il tempest in a teapot. Check out the rest of Vess’ amazing artwork after the jump.
