Restless with his new duties after the War of the Realms, Loki seeks out the advice of the closest thing Earth has to a king - TONY STARK, THE INVINCIBLE IRON MAN! - Close enough, right? But it turns out old Shell-head isn't happy to see Loki on account of all that stuff he did. Now the God of Mischief/Stories/Evil/Chaos has to outsmart the cleverest man in Midgard or die (again) trying. Meanwhile, could Thor be hatching a mischievous plot of his own?

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Aug 14, 2019

    Kibblesmith and Bazaldua have established an appealingly firm foundation for Loki-as-protagonist in the first couple of issues of his series. A man who is lost and trying to find himself through weird, casually fantastic adventures is a fun guy to hang out with once a month. Read Full Review

    Like I said above, Loki #2 gives you a lot more confidence in what this book has to offer. It's all fun and games with Loki, but at the end of the day you also want a story that engages you. It doesn't have to be complicated or over the top, but it just has to be something that shows you that there is a plan in mind for the character. Read Full Review

    Loki #2 was an interesting follow-up to the first issue in the series. It threw in more twists and complications to the tale"which proves that the story truly does revolve about this character of mischief. Oddly enough, it puts certain elements taken for granted into question"which is a refreshing change. On the whole, this issue will be perfect for readers hoping to learn a bit more about Loki. Or just seeing more of Loki doing what he does best"get himself into trouble. Read Full Review

    There is only one way to say this and it's directly: Loki #2 is less light and fun than its introductory issue, but that doesn't make it any less brilliant. Read Full Review

    It was good to see Nightmare – the Freddy Krueger of the Marvel Universe as more than a laughingstock and hopefully we see him looking menacing in the next few issues. Maybe it will all clear up in a few issues, but as it this issue just sort of stalls. Bit of a let down. Read Full Review
