NEW ARC OF THOR by Blackwood, Anthony via 360 Magazine

THE NEW ARC OF THOR

THE NEW ARC OF THOR SHEDS LIGHT ON THANOS’ DARK HISTORY WITH ASGARD!

Guest writer Torunn Grønbekk and returning artist Nic Klein kick off “The Legacy of Thanos” in THOR #29, on sale in December.

In the opening arc of Donny Cates and Nic Klein’s hit run of THOR, fans witnessed a disturbing vision of the Mad Titan Thanos laying waste to the Marvel Universe! Since then, Thor has done everything in his power to prevent this future from coming to pass, but has it been enough? Find out as this brewing plot comes to the forefront in a brand new arc starting December titled “The Legacy of Thanos.” The arc will be penned by guest writer Torunn Grønbekk who will join returning series artist and newly christened Stormbreaker Nic Klein for an adventure starring Thor and the Valkyrie Rúna. The arc will spin directly out of THANOS: DEATH NOTES, the oversized Thanos one-shot hitting stands in November, and it will serve as a pivotal prelude to Cates and Klein’s future plans for Thanos’ upcoming conquest.

When a universally loathed foe kidnaps Thor’s baby sister Laussa and drags her so deep beyond Hel that not even Sif’s All-Sight can see her, the God of Thunder must call upon the one ally who has traveled so far into the unknown before: Rúna. But what dark secrets of Asgard’s bloody past lay beneath the frozen waters?

“There is something incredibly inventive and bold about Donny and Nic’s Thor, and it’s been an absolute delight to guest-write a story for this run,” Grønbekk said. “It’s turning out to be just the kind of thing I love – big swings, solid character moments and deeply human solutions. Also, Nic is impossibly good. There is a special kind of joy to see his pages come together. I don’t think I’ve ever had this much fun making comics!”

Check out the cover below and pick up the start of this thrilling new arc of THOR on December 7!

thuy – i hope u see this (deluxe)

Vietnamese singer-songwriter thuy (pronounced twee) released the deluxe edition of her critically-acclaimed debut EP, i hope u see this. The fourteen-track project is a reflection of thuy‘s truth, unraveling the complexities of love through a utopia of harmonies that spotlight heartbreak, love, empowerment, and self-confidence. i hope u see this (deluxe) introduces five more reasons as to how thuy is paving the future for modern R&B in her own right. 

“The deluxe project is a continuation of the theme that I’m closing the door on the past in order to enter a new chapter in my life,” thuy said with excitement about the deluxe EP.  

i hope u see this (deluxe) is a cohesive body of work that celebrates thuy‘s innate musicality. It’s a consistent approach, meant to be played in any setting that honors emotion. Songs like “distance between us” prove that thuy’s regaining control over those overwhelming thoughts and unwanted feelings that have sapped her energy over the years. Her smooth vocals permeate the work, flirting over bouncy percussion that grinds into a catchy hook with “inhibitions” featuring P-Lo

When trying to make sense of thuy, you’re introduced to a fiery songstress that’s capable of making the best out of a bad situation. “in my bag” featuring Destiny Rogers channels those elements of misfortune into a deeper meaning that encourages listeners to remain focused in the face of adversity.  Diving deeper into the remix, thuy explains, “the ‘in my bag’ remix with Destiny Rogers is a major women empowerment anthem and that’s why I knew I wanted to get another female artist on it. Destiny Rogers was the perfect feature for this remix; she just exudes confidence and drive. I wanted to really embody the idea that women can be bosses and to never count us out of anything because we always come out on top!”

The Weeknd – Dawn FM

The Weeknd’s surprise album Dawn FM is leading the charts around the globe. Debuting at #1 Apple Music US and in 125 countries, and #1 Spotify US and worldwide. Dawn FM accumulates over 500 million streams to date. Listen to Dawn FM [XO/Republic Records] HERE.

Despite the release of the album coming suddenly, Dawn FM has been a smash hit. Dawn FM may just snatch up the spot as The Weeknd’s best album thus far. The single “Sacrifice” came out at #1 on Spotify US and global, while the collection The Highlights, too, ranks among the Billboard Top 10 at #6. Having two albums rank in the top ten is conventionally unheard of, a resounding accomplishment for The Weeknd.

Playing off the theme of an afterlife-esque radio station network, Dawn FM transforms viewers to a new universe. The abrupt announcement of the album ultimately worked in the favor of The Weeknd, with Dawn FM now ranking as his second global #1 album during the pandemic, following the renowned After Hours was released in March 2020, featuring the #1 All Time Hot 100 hit “Blinding Lights.”

Dawn FM has gained quick critical acclaim, registering The Weeknd’s leading aggregate score on Metacritic at ’88.’ Variety spoke on the album, stating, “After Hours has resonated for nearly two years after its release, and in the face of another phase of a daunting pandemic, it seems that Dawn FM – possibly The Weeknd’s best and most fully realized album to date – will help carry fans through this one as well.” Rolling Stone, too, raved about Dawn FM, rating it “4-out-of-5 stars, The Weeknd focuses those interstellar ambitions to anoint us with the most enchanting music to the portal through purgatory.”

Dawn FM sees features from Tyler, the Creator, Lil Wayne, Quincy Jones, Oneohtrix Point Never and Jim Carrey.

If you haven’t listened to this album yet, you are truly missing out on a sonic, one-of-a-experience by the superstar himself, The Weeknd.
