    Loki: Agent of Asgard #6 has a slow start, but the loads of exposition feel worthwhile when Ewing and Coelho reach the story they want to tell. Its an interesting commentary on two of the most fascinating and long-lasting villains in comics. Like Kieron Gillens Journey Into Mystery, it manages to take multiple crossovers and tie-ins, and weave them into a narrative that is compelling all on its own. Read Full Review

    The inclusion of Dr.Doom shows that " unlike the architects of the MCU " Ewing and Co aren't convinced that Loki is the only interesting villain that Marvel has to offer. I look forward to watching the inventive way that Loki worms his way out of scrapes with the less morally obligated characters that Marvel has in its roster. Read Full Review

    Once again we are given a great take on the God of Mischief with bonus inclusion of Doctor Doom that was surprisingly one of his better appearances as of late. Will he end up being another pawn of the Red Skull and give into his future evil nature or be on the side of heroes and help save the day? Read Full Review

    Overall, Loki: Agent of Asgard continues to impress. I must emphasize that Al Ewing is such a clever writer and should be given a chance writing some bigger titles. He aptly captures every character’s voice and knows how to build a series around their specific tone. Where this issue lacked in Loki content, it made up for in Doom. If you haven’t starting picking this series up, I implore you to jump on board before it’s too late. Welcome back Loki, we missed you! Read Full Review

    When the book went up to $3.99, my standards for it also increased, especially coming in after the Original Sin detour with Angela, but based on this issue I'll stick around for the foreseeable future. While someone may frown over the current incarnation of loki for being too tumblr/teen friendly (The 2 One Direction references in the first 2 issues were almost too much for me even) he's a lot of fun to spend time with and that's something I always look for in my comics.

    Not the greatest return after a summer-long hiatus. The issue displays little of its original appeal. Read Full Review

    Ewing and Coelho's "Loki: Agent of Asgard" #6 feels like a hiccup in an otherwise stellar run, but this is likely due to its tie-in status. Hopefully, Ewing and Coelho will shift their focus from Doom and back to Loki and his supporting cast soon. Read Full Review
