Loki is many things -- god, trickster, brother, liar, son, villain, even hero. Now he wants to add one more thing to the list: President of the United States. That's right, the God of Lies has set his sights on becoming the ruler of the free world, but is this just another scheme? One thing's for certain -- with Loki's winning smile and silver tongue on the campaign trail, this election just got a lot more interesting...

    A question that may come up will be the longevity of the series.Will it hold up in another two years? It's tough to say. Vote Loki #1 is very much a comic of the moment. This moment, and it's one you absolutely need to read. Read Full Review

    This is a side of Loki that we haven’t seen before, and it’s an intriguing one. I’m excited to see where things go from here, what Loki’s policies will be, if people will vote for him, and how exactly he will change America. Loki for President! Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Jun 21, 2016

    Vote Loki #1 is a story well-suited for today's political climate and current Marvel Comics continuity, as it draws power from one and shows respect for the other in its characterization of the titular god. Read Full Review

    CourtOfNerds - Emily Slater Jun 15, 2016

    It's a fun, silly read, with a lot of promise to get even more entertaining. The art style isn't for everyone, and not everyone appreciates political satire, but if you do, I'd definitely suggest picking this one up. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Jun 23, 2016

    Vote Loki #1 is a fascinating and clever concept, but it's not executed right. There's definitely enjoyable moments but there's also something missing that we can't quite put our finger on. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Jun 15, 2016

    There is little about Vote Loki #1 that stands out, for good or ill. Ironically, much like its protagonist, it is not good or bad – it is just there. And, like Loki, the book has some small charms but it shows signs of being capable of being much more than it is. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jun 17, 2016

    "Vote Loki" #1 just doesn't come together in the way it should. There are little moments that are fun and the overall concept is clever, but -- for now -- Hastings and Foss' finished product doesn't live up to its potential. Read Full Review

    The Source by SuperHeroStuff - Marc Buxton Jun 22, 2016

    Its all very well and good, but there just isnt enough there to justify this books existence. Yes, the internet loves Loki and Tom Hiddleston, and this years chaotic election is just an easy target, but the book isnt cheeky enough to be an effective satire and its not exciting to appeal to fans of the classical Thor or Loki. Its ably crafted in places, and like most of the 2016 presidential candidates, theres just nothing to get behind. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Jun 23, 2016

    Vote Loki is incredibly timely. There's no denying that Loki occupies a unique cultural niche that allows him to poke some much needed fun at the mass hysteria America calls its election cycle and that Christopher Hastings is a perfect choice to write that story. The problem lies in whether that story feels necessary. There just isn't quite enough to justify this series yet and, while it fits better than in most cases, Langdon Foss' art neither adds significant visual appeal nor supports the strengths of the issue. Hastings does some really nice things with Nisa and the role of the media in this issue, and that gives readers something to grab onto, however, like that same institution, it kind of feels like this series is reporting on this story just to have something to do. A fun diversion for those inclined, but forgettable in a way that one only wishes much of what it satirizes could be. Read Full Review
