Walt Simonson's 80s run on The Mighty Thor is the stuff of legend, so it's no surprise Marvel asked him back to offer a variant cover for #706, the current volume's final issue and the conclusion of "The Death of the Mighty Thor." Laura Martin provided colors for the cover

“We’re honored to have legendary Thor writer and artist Walter Simonson provide this variant cover for the finale of ‘The Death Of The Mighty Thor,’” said series editor Wil Moss in a statement. “This is actually his first time drawing Jane Thor and the Mangog, a classic Thor villain from the Jack Kirby and Stan Lee era that he never go the chance to draw before.”

Here's the solicitation text for the issue, which is out on stands April 18:
