Loki's search for allies against the Serpent in the depths of the underworld has gone somewhat awry. Paranoia reigns in the pits, as the forces of Mephisto's Hell and Hela's Hel totter on the edge of open war. Thankfully, Loki has a carefully considered, planned and proportionate response: assassination and perhaps a little torture to follow. Can Loki escape the suspicion that we're all flies to this wanton boy?

    It's yet to be seen whether or not Loki will eventually become that older version that is known for being evil, but it doesn't matter. This new Loki has so much gold to be mined that I can't wait to see what he's going to do next. Read Full Review

    Are you reading this? If not, you really should be, because I can guarantee that this comic is better than a good chunk of whatever's on your pull list. That's certainly the case for me. Read Full Review

    Gillens short tenure on Journey Into Mystery has been riddled with magic, adventure and majesty. The variety of locales and the decisions of how to present them are appeasing to both first time vacationers to the nine realms and those who have timeshares there. Gillen seems to relish the chance to play around in Thors world and it shows. I enjoyed this issue a lot, but its not because it featured characters like the Mephisto and Tyr or because it does something new and fantastic with one of Marvels oldest villains. No, I enjoyed the hell out of this because it was funny. Read Full Review
