    I think this storyline is superb, for fleshing out Loki and his family's relationship as well as questioning our religious beliefs and social behaviors. Marvelous. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - shathley Q Mar 19, 2014

    "'Be your own god' is bad advice," Hercules says of the acts of self-liberation Loki leads the ordinary people of our everyday world to. But wouldn't those accustomed to power always say that anyway? Rather than ask us to just accept this on face value, the text itself counters with, "Our lives aren't like other people's lives." Loki: Ragnarok 'n' Roll, in the end, reads like what it is, a studied, concerted, meditatively postmodern consideration of the deep connection between rock 'n roll and the infinite renewability of pop culture, and in offering this consideration, taps into powerful existentialist underpinnings that roil through twentieth century literature from Robert Frost to Lester Bangs. Loki: Ragnarok 'n' Roll comes with the highest praise. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Mar 19, 2014

    Every now and then you need to read a comic series thats just fun for what it is and Loki: Ragnarok and Roll is that type of comic. Sure, they arent breaking any boundaries and are using a character that happens to be incredibly popular thanks to the Marvel version, but they are still telling an amusing story that flows well and leaves a smile on your face when you finish. For only being four issues long, this mini-series is meant to just be enjoyed for what it is, a silly but hilarious read. Read Full Review

    Not convinced yet? The suggested listening list includes Kanye's "I Am a God", there's a "Fight Club" quote on the title page and Thor refers to himself as "the Master of Monsoons." No matter what you thought when you first heard about "Loki: Ragnarok and Roll", just go read this. I promise, it's so metal. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steve Paugh Mar 19, 2014

    I'm still going to stick around with this book to see if its direction is just a clever ruse on not just the humans that worship Loki, but also the reader. There are enough hints to suggest that this could very well be the case, but just as many (if not more) that make me think it could simply be a poorly-veiled mouthpiece with some action to satiate the masses. I guess I'll find out soon enough, because as big a letdown as this was, I'm still not going anywhere. Yet. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Michael Moccio Mar 20, 2014

    As bogged down as it felt at times, the issue, as a whole, was still a fairly good read, and now that Thor and Loki are reunited, perhaps the charm and witty repertoire between the two will return and enhance the narrative. Read Full Review
