Writer Al Ewing does something this with issue that was incredibly necessary. He takes the time to re-establish who Loki is. Ewing's version of Loki really goes back to his "God of mischief" roots, which is fantastic. What's really cool is his attitude. Everything seems below Loki, like it's bugging him. While he is a bit of a snob, this issue really focuses on Loki's role in this series.
Feb 02, Meg rated it it was amazing Shelves: When I last left Loki: Agent of Asgard I had just finished the first issue of the series and was thinking eh, this could be really good or be awful I'll get back to it eventually.
After months, I have picked up the series again and I have to say, it ended up being really good. There are so many elements of this comic that work so well together.
With Old Loki and New Loki both being in it, you get this strong appeal. A New Loki who is a little different than the one we're usually used to as comic book fans. The light heart moments are my favorite when it comes to New Loki. Something else I really enjoy about this series is all the new and exciting characters that they're bringing into it. For example, Verity has quickly become one of my favorite characters in the comic universe currently. She's got spunk which is something I always appreciate and can hold her own, something else that I always enjoy.
Overall this issue was a good introduction to some new characters and I definitely am excited about where this series is going. Aug 30, Tina DeSalvo rated it it was amazing Shelves: Oct 21, Desiree rated it it was amazing. Apr 03, Sam rated it it was ok Shelves: Agent of Asgard started quite well. Issue 1 was not a masterwork, but it introduced us to the character and gave a good overview of what the series will be about, so I think it was a good foundation to build upon.
Sadly, issue two is not as good. To begin with, I really think the name is unfortunate. I know this is something that happens a lot in comics, but normally with old characters or others who select their name based on their powers.
Loki: Agent of Asgard #2 - Loki and Lorelei, Sitting in a Tree...
That is like going to a lie-a-thon. That is even more likely in a fictional universe such as comics where science and magic mix and things are never universally true. The rest of the comic is about some mission Loki is taking for the all-mother to snatch Lorelei back to Asgard. That happened in the Journey into Mystery: There has to be other things to do! Why do Asgardians like to wander randomly in Midgard every 6 years? Another is the heist part, which was quite un-heisty as in there was not really much of an opposition there and if Lorelei had that kind of exit, why would she want to get out using a car?
While that is forgivable when it happens in a few parts, on this issue the strange thing is to actually have a proper background, as most of it happens in vague foggy places.
Review: “Loki: Agent of Asgard #2”
I hope next issue will get things exciting again, because Loki is too good of a character to just be thrown in small time things like this issue.
Apr 24, Morv rated it it was amazing Shelves: The mission begins at a Speed-dating venue, Loki finds himself in front of a young woman called Verity, who can see through lies instantly; she is essentially a proper lie detector and that makes her a tragic character, she can also see through Loki's lies, although she is surprised at his story, he tells her the truth of his mission, probably because she can also see right through his spells.
I won't spoil the comic for you, but it is a really good read and spun rather nicely together.Comic Con Under Glass: The Adventures of Keith Flippen & Sci-Fi Speed Dating
I am inte The mission begins at a Speed-dating venue, Loki finds himself in front of a young woman called Verity, who can see through lies instantly; she is essentially a proper lie detector and that makes her a tragic character, she can also see through Loki's lies, although she is surprised at his story, he tells her the truth of his mission, probably because she can also see right through his spells.
I am interested in Verity, who would be a good friend for Loki to have, since she can call him out on his lies and tricks that he tries to use because they won't work on her. Although Loki has said that he isn't likely to speak the truth to her, but she will know anyone. Lorelei is a character that really isn't given too much information here, if you know little about her character to begin with you will wonder what is special about her, but that will probably make you want to keep reading the next issue as well.
Mar 18, Callie Rose Tyler rated it liked it Shelves: This issue felt more genuine and less pandering. I really enjoyed the introduction of Verity, a girl that can't be lied to, and look forward to seeing more of her.
Also loved that there were hints of mischief making to come. The characterization of Loki felt less cheesy and more developed without the presence of other heroes like the avengers taking up space. Apr 18, Andrea Judy rated it really liked it.
This issue was a bit slower than the first one, and I think more of the actual events should have been included. But again, a great bit of fun with the speed dating scenes and the introduction of a new female character, Verity. Jan 17, Maheen Masroor rated it liked it.
