I'm a writer. I read a lot of comics. My friend Jojo is an artist. She doesn't read any comics.

At lunch, she draws super heroes from memory. Her memory is not always very good.

As you look at these drawings, I can not stress enough that Jojo is a professional artist, and a full grown woman. It's important to remember that.

Today Jojo draws Frog Thor!
This week, Jojo has been drawing alternate versions of super heroes. She’s already done Soviet Superman, Vampire Batman and Spider-Man 2099.
Frog Thor is a little different, because he’s not from an alternate reality, or future timeline. No, Frog Thor is the honest to goodness, in continuity, 616, Thor Odinson… turned into a frog.
This really happened! This is why comics are great! In a totally serious comic, that was meant to be taken completely seriously, Thor was turned into a frog, teamed up with other frogs (with names like Glugwart and Gullywhump) and helped them defeat evil rats! For real!
Not only that, it’s part of what’s considered one of the greatest runs in Thor history, written and drawn by Walt Simonson, probably one of the top three most important creators to ever work on Thor! ALL FOR REAL! COMICS! Stuff like Frog Thor really makes up for all the sexism and dumb events (sort of).
Anyway, Jojo’s drawing is great. She got the colors wrong (because she thinks Thor dresses in black) and she made his hammer’s handle to long. But this is great. Really, really great.
Frog Thor.
