    Funnier than the first issue, Loki: Agent of Asgard #2 finds a way to one up itself. Read Full Review

    Visually, Garbett's art, combined with Nolan Woodard's colors, is a visual feast. From Verity's many tattoos to each character's versatile range of expressions, the book's art builds a world that's as vibrant as Loki himself. My chief complaint was that I wanted to gorge myself on this story like Augustus Gloop at Willy Wonka's chocolate factory and it had to come to an end before I had my fill. Read Full Review

    Lee Garbett and Al Ewing continue to deliver a Loki tale with so many amusing twists and turns, that readers will likely be glued to each and every page. They are also building the next rung in the mythology that Kieron Gillen started with Loki in 2009’s Journey Into Mystery. Fans of Marvel’s fringe characters, or even the Avengers film will discover something to love in these pages. Read Full Review

    I've had a lot of complaints lately on issues that were bad setups for upcoming story arcs. In fact, this week's 'Uncanny X-Men' falls into that category. However, as annoying as the moving forward issues can be when done wrong to the point where they feel like filler issues " when they are done right they shine! Ewing has done right here and we get a fun story that is a great tale for a stand alone issue and is able to build into whatever greater story he wants to tell us. This is no filler issue here my friends! Read Full Review

    Those who dismiss this title as pandering to a movie audience, aside from missing the point of gaining new readers in the medium, do themselves a disservice by not familiarizing themselves with this new, more active Loki. The concept of putting him on missions for Asgard is one that seems a long time coming, despite the character's recent popularity. Though this issue seems to serves as set up for an upcoming arc told almost exclusively through a conversation, it is to the credit of the creators that it never once seems boring or filler. Loki will tell you the truth that he is going to lie to you. The issue lies to you about telling you the truth. If the quality of this book stays consistent, this will be a title you're going to want to read, and that is no lie. Read Full Review

    While the last issue was a 5/5 for me, this one gets a 4, even though I liked it more than the first issue. The problem is that the tone feels so different from that first issue and readers are missing out on what the last issue left us with. However, if this series keeps in tone with this issue, Ewing has a dynamite series on his hands. Try this book out. It's a lot of fun and has an extremely interesting concept. Read Full Review

    Fans of Garbett's work on Bryan Q. Miller's "Batgirl" will be pleased to find that his work here is even better, and the tone of the book is quite similar. This one looks like it's going to delight month in and month out. Read Full Review

    A case where Elwing doesn't seem to know what he wants to concentrate on, so he tries to do everything at once, leading to a rather uneven read. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Marykate Jasper Mar 10, 2014

    With the speed dating done and the newest scheme hatched, "Loki: Agent of Asgard" #2 can only fairly be considered disappointing in light of the debut issue. After a less brilliant opening, this fun but flat issue would be simply that -- fun but flat. Read Full Review
