    Full disclosure: I'm in love with this book. I anticipate that it will quickly rise to be one of my favorites, the one I read first every week it comes out, and this issue didn't let me down. The video game sequence was brilliant and the dialogue bouncing back between "oldie-worldie talk" and modern day vernacular is hilarious. If this story didn't deliver something, it's only in that it didn't reveal much more about the old Loki's evil misgivings. Near perfect! Read Full Review

    I don't think it's any surprise that I'm in love with this series. Al Ewing is doing brilliant work both here and on Mighty Avengers, every page is a joy to read, either with laugh out loud jokes, clever plot twists, or engaging and varied characters that all play off of each other very well. With Lee Garbett's artwork backing up the excellent script, Loki is in great hands " I was worried when Kieron Gillen relinquished the reins of everyone's favorite trickster that the next person to take up the mantle would lead him astray, but I needn't have worried at all. Loki's just as good (or evil, depending on your view and how he's feeling in the morning) as ever. Read Full Review

    I have to tell you, the way this one ended has me eagerly looking forward to how the next will play out! Assuming we don't get more time travelling Old Loki and more of what Young Loki has up his sleeve. Or is it actually Old Loki that has a trick up his sleeve? Both seem to have long term plans in place but one has to wonder which of these two is the one actually orchestrating the events that we are reading? I suspect that the help from Loki's friends might all be a part of the elder Loki's plan to find a way to once again have true freedom instead of the limited freedom that he used to change his past for a better future. Mysteries and riddles that I feel we are probably nowhere near solving. Read Full Review

    Though Old Loki is conspicuously absent, the book brims with great content, featuring everything from the appearance of a Marvel heavy, an intriguing meeting and a tasty recipe for salmon. A godly union, indeed. Read Full Review

    "Loki: Agent of Asgard" continues to be one of Marvel's funniest titles with references to The Princess Bride and pretentious ladykillers aplenty. Read Full Review

    Entertaining enough, but for the flash and bang the series aims for, it should be so much more. Read Full Review

    If you havent been invested and involved in Loki: Agent of Asgard up to this point this issue is not a necessity. It may play out better when read as part of a collection. The previous four issues up to this point have grown in quality to this point and I cant but hope this is just a swing and a miss rather than a strike out from this point on. Read Full Review
