Unpublished Thor Art

An unpublished panel of Thor's alter-ego Dr. Don Blake. Stan Lee wrote a message on the side "Sol. Save for inking sample." Luckily this was not used as an inking "test." Jack's Margin notes say: "Blake describes exhilaration of becoming Thor -- The surge of great strength -- and his thought of moving boulder."
Apparently Jack wanted the panel to introduce this flashback sequence in Thor # 158 (Nov. 1968), but Lee decided against it. Pages 7 and 8 below were first published in Journey Into Mystery # 83 (Aug 1962).
