• In the aftermath of AXIS, Loki is the Hero Of Asgard no more. But one change remains:
• The God of Lies can only ever tell the truth.
• Now, Loki's brother, the Odinson, visits his apartment, to talk of cabbages, kings... and Kid Loki.
• This is it.

    Ewing has for the past couple years done a spectacular job of weaving events based on prior continuity, but using it as grist for the mill as opposed to simply showing hed done his homework, and it works best with someone like Loki who has ages of history and more to come. Lee Garbett has from the start defined the look of the series, taken what Stephanie Hans and Jamie McKelvie built and made it his own. Actions scenes and talky scenes alike are both given equal resonance, and for a book thats built on human relationships as Loki, it only helps to have someone who can bring the wham, as well as the sad. I dont want to give away the events of the series as they occur, thats what reading is for, but either way your 3.99 is well-deserved with Loki. Read Full Review

    While the direction of this series has already changed several times in the last year, at its core it remains a story about Loki trying to change who he was and who he might become. It's questionable whether forcibly revising his past was the right way of going about it, but even if it worked, there's always that damned "crime that will not be forgiven" thing hanging over his head. To say that it won't be forgiven means that it also won't be forgotten, which means Loki can do right for the rest of his life and still never find relief. Read Full Review

    Loki: Agent of Asgard successfully toes the oft-difficult lines between canny and funny. For a comic featuring a god of trickery and lies, it never plays fast and loose with its truths, and it is never not poignant with its pathos and sincerity. Read Full Review

    "Loki: Agent of Asgard" #10 made me both depressed for the characters and delighted for this series. "Agent of Asgard" continues to tap into what's messy and unfair about Asgard stories, while never letting its deeply self-destructive protagonist off the hook. I'm so curious and nervous for issue #11. Read Full Review
