Mighty Odin Himself

With all the hype surrounding the upcoming Thor flick, I’m sure I’ll be posting a lot of examples from Jack’s work on that title. Here is a terrific splash of Odin from Thor # 158 (1968), pg. 18, inks by Vince Colletta. Below that is a scan of the original art.
Tony Hopkins is playing Odin in the film scheduled for release next year. I wonder if he will wear giant headgear like Kirby’s character, and sport the long pointy mustache.
Taking a really close look at the original artwork, you can see that Odin’s armor is a slightly different color than the rest of the image — cream-colored as opposed to white. It looks like Colletta used white-out like paint to achieve the metallic sheen you see here on the arm and bottom of the glove.

Jack’s margin notes at the top of the page: “My eyes have seen mighty Odin himself.”
