    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 17, 2019

    So Lokis cool, The creative team is cool., The team is VERY COOL. No creative team lasts forever, though. Its hard to imagine Loki working quite this well with anyone else. But in the opening installment, Kibblesmith and Bazaldua give this series the kind of appeal that makes it FEEL like anyone could pick up the title and instantly make it their own. Lokis just that adaptable. But with any luck, Kibblesmith and Bazaldua will be around for a long, long time. This is a fun opener. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jul 18, 2019

    Loki #1 is a book worth having in your pull-list. In general, it is worth having a book on your pull-list from Marvel that you can have fun with. This is the same old Loki, but once more the experience is refreshing when he has to fight against his own nature to be the best version of himself. Read Full Review

    While Loki #1 won't be everyone's glass of wine, it's a solid start for those who enjoy a spirited story of trickery unbound. Those who only know Loki from the Marvel movies would do well to pick this one up and learn the truth behind the God of Mischief. And the lies too, of course. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Jul 17, 2019

    Loki #1 was a strong start to this new series. It's already looking to be as exciting and chaotic as I had been hoping " which is saying something. I loved the inclusion of the War of the Realms plot, plus all of the cameos that went with it. Including the littler one. It was a nice touch. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - pauly p. Jul 17, 2019

    Its a new status quo for most of our notable Asgardians, and while weve seen Loki at times be considered an anti-hero, giving him serious responsibilities and a newfound sense of purpose is a new twist in his long story. Whether he will take it as seriously as his brother remains to be seen, and while Ive never been a Thor guy this is an intriguing start and Ill definitely stick around to see where it leads. The cartoony art matches well with the slightly comical tone of the story without ever going into farce or being too silly. Its a solid start for the new Loki. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Joe Grunenwald Jul 17, 2019

    Loki #1 is a decent start for the new series. A somewhat overwritten script is bolstered by the strength of the issue's art. The dialogue and plotting in the issue is entertaining, and there's clearly some really fun potential in the premise of the series. I'm hopeful that future issues will rely less on narration " or at least tweak the narration to be less 'on the nose' " so that this title, and Loki himself, can reach their full potential.
