    I thought it was fun. The God Who Fell To Earth had an Agent of Asgard feel to it that I really enjoyed. He's trying to worm his way into the Avengers and figure out where he fits into the world now that he isn't trying to destroy it. Basically, Loki finally gets everything he wanted and now he has no idea what to do with himself. So. He does what he does best and causes a little bit of trouble. <--mostly for himself, though.

There's a run-in with Iron Man, some creepy celestial kids, and there's even a little Cowboy Wolverine story thrown in towards the end. You know, for those of you who are into that sort of thing. My biggest problem is that I'm really behind on everything Asgard-related, so I'm only partially aware of how this Loki stuff fits into the bigger picture. But even as a stand-alone Loki story this works pretty well. And on the upside, it's kind of given me that push I needed to go finish out all the Thor stuff I'm missing. Good stuff.

    Oh look, yet another great comic that Marvel decided to cancel seemingly before even the first issue hit the shelves. It hurts even more that the entire thing is a meta-commentary on how the odds were always stacked against Loki and his comics over the years.

    The series had potential as Loki strives to become an Avenger but the writing lacks focus, flitting from story to story. Maybe if Marvel hadn't cancelled it before it was published it would have received that focus.

    Another good book killed off before it had a chance to find an audience. I sometimes wonder if the Marvel/Disney powers-that-be have a bunch of tiny gravestones in their back gardens of all the children they had who they murdered because they hadn’t won a Nobel Prize by the age of three. Sorry for the dark imagery, but it’s exactly how these premature book cancellations make me feel.

    “Loki is a story about – and “for”, and honestly “by” – the kids who really try to do everything right and still get punished for it. Those who can’t shut off their minds, who don’t think before they speak, who try every door just to see if it’s unlocked – and then the next door behind it.” Thank you, Daniel Kibblesmith, you get it.

And you get why I will always think that Loki rules and Thor drools (I mean, sure, I’d love to feed Tom Hiddleston scones and tea and make a mess with the clotted cream, but I loved the character before he showed up and made it hot as fuck, okay?!). And thank you for this fun little adventure with the God of Mischief front and center as the… hero? It was about time! After getting everything he wanted, Loki is predictably a bit bored with his new duties as king of Jothunheim. Ruling over dumb Frost Giants isn’t exactly fun or challenging, so he decides he wants to join the Avengers, because what else is he going to do? But in typical Loki fashion, the plan gets a little off the rails: the road to being a hero features more than a few hurdles, including a god of nightmares, Iron Man, the very unsettling Children of Eternity and some highway bandits from Montana circa 1911. The story was fun, very well plotted, with a clever meta commentary not only on the main character, but on heroic stories in general, and how they come to be. The artwork is beautiful and very expressive, and Kibblesmith’s grasp on Loki’s inner monologue is spot on. It is such a shame that Marvel decided to cancel this series, which had so much potential for rich and interesting development (perhaps they think that the TV show is enough; idjits). A delight that will leave Loki-fans wanting more. Alas.

    4/5 I was torn between giving this 5 stars or 3 stars. Five stars because this version of Loki, King of Jotunheim and praised for his sacrifice at the end of the War of Realms, is bored out of his mind and looking for fun. And fun is what the story delivers. Loki pays a visit to Iron Man, pulls one over on Nightmare, and fulfills his calling as God of Mischief. Unfortunately, this is only a one-shot and just sorta ends without getting a chance to really go anywhere. And I found the ending especial 4/5 I was torn between giving this 5 stars or 3 stars.

And I found the ending especially frustrating because Verity FINALLY returns and gets just a few pages at the end. Her relationship with Loki was the highlight of the Loki Agent of Asgard run and I have been looking forward to her return. I can't fathom why Marvel didn't give this a series order. This version of Loki has a better foundation to build from than the AoA version, which got seventeen issues.

    In the wake of War of the Realms, Loki is the new King of the Frost Giants. But that's not enough. He also wants to be...an Avenger? Yeah, sure, let's go with that. Loki solo books have so much potential to go wrong. He's such a complex character, and trying to get the correct balance of good/evil/whatever is so difficult.

He's such a complex character, and trying to get the correct balance of good/evil/whatever is so difficult. And yet Marvel always seem to throw the right creators at him. After Journey Into Mystery and Loki: Agent Of Asgard, I never expected to read another Loki solo series half as good again, and yet here comes Daniel Kibblesmith with five issues of sheer perfection. The first four bring Loki into contact with Iron Man, Nightmare, and the House Of Ideas from Avengers: No Road Home (another concept I absolutely love), as he battles against his fate and tries to find out exactly what he's the God of, these days. Kibblesmith's grasp of Loki's plight and the way in which he handles it is so very clever, and his inner monologue rings through wonderfully. Issue 5 is more of a one-and-done as Loki teams up with Wolverine, but it's the framing sequence that really shines, and shows why it's such a travesty that this book only got five issues when it had so much more story to tell. On art for the first four issues is Oscar Balzaldua, who I thought was one of Marvel's mid-range artists when he filled in over on Miles Morales for a bit, but this book really lets him come into his own and make the world of Loki his. He does a lot with a little, and the clothes he puts Loki in? Brilliant. The final issue is Andy MacDonald, who's a little more scribbly and a little less impressive, but that doesn't lessen the impact of the story or diminish how good the rest of the book is at all. I really, really hope this creative team get another chance at Loki soon, because this was just sheer perfection from cover to cover.

    I liked it, but it's nowhere near the level of what Kieran Gillen was doing with this character. Artwork is consistently superior throughout. I liked it, but it's nowhere near the level of what Kieran Gillen was doing with this character. Artwork is consistently superior throughout.

    This felt kind of scattered, but there were individual moments that were really fun. I liked seeing Loki trying to be "good." Plus he spends almost the whole book wearing this t-shirt: [3.5 stars] This felt kind of scattered, but there were individual moments that were really fun. I liked seeing Loki trying to be "good."

    I was a big fan of Loki: Agent of Asgard, so I’m so pleased that this series is following in that series’ footsteps! Loki’s character is captured perfectly here, and it was truly a fun ride. I can’t wait to see where this series goes! 5/5 stars EDIT — Just heard this got cancelled. :/ Ugh!! All the good comics do nowadays. A shame!

    This one was pretty good. It's a shame Kibblesmith didn't get much time to tell the full story it seemed like he wanted to. I haven't read much from Kibblesmith, but what I have has been mostly on these more niche Marvel books and they're generally pretty fresh and original. Loki: The God Who Fell to Earth is shaky in parts, but it's definitely something that felt new and self-aware. I would have like to have read more, but this one volume we did get was pretty successful on its own. This one was pretty good.

    I have always been an unabashed lover of chaos... Loki shirks the responsibility of a frozen throne and instead heads to Earth to try his hand at being a hero. Existential crises and havoc inevitably ensues in an albeit, very aesthetic fashion. Overall, this had a fun plot, great art, and a copious amount of costume changes by my favorite Marvel character.

    Fast, fun read that includes significant moments but breezes through them in a way that makes it hard for me to care. In the context of the Marvel comics post War for the 9 realms, Loki is questioning who he is after becoming a hero and ruling Jotunheim alongside his brother Thor, King of Asgard. There's a lot of Avenger references, and we follow him generally avoiding his responsibilities and acting innocent whilst providing his snarky voiceover.

The visuals were pretty decent, with a few odd drawings. Nightmare is also in this for some reason, and is dealt with in a pretty classical mythological-story style way, albeit modernised and Marvel-ised. There's also some major gods/ beings outside of time who are introduced to provide some meta-commentary alongside Loki, but it all doesn't really feel tied together in a satisfactory way - you can tell the writers were planting seeds for their unfortunately cancelled-after-one-run story.

    Another sly, metafictional commentary on the ridiculous predicament of Loki - a trickster compelled to keep running through the same routine, a god of stories whose own stories keep beating him around the head and then imploding - Hel, a god whose 'god of' seems to change with every outing.

Still, shame though that is, what matters more is what fun it was while it lasted. Not on the level of Ewing's Loki series, let alone Gillen's, but also considerably less traumatic, and still capable of mixing big metaphysical questions (what does it mean if a god lies?) with the in-jokes and heist-style set-ups.

    There were some okay moments in this but overall I'm not really sure what the 'point' was or where it was trying to go. Apparently it got cancelled before all the issues even came out so I'm guessing that's responsible for part of it but it also seemed to be just trying and failing to capture the feel of Agent of Asgard.

    I've never read many western comics, but my enjoyment of the MCU has motivated me to give them a try. This comic popped up to borrow digitally on Hoopla from the library so I went for it, as I've always thought Loki was a fun character both in the MCU and in mythology. I was not disappointed! I laughed aloud multiple times. I enjoyed the banter and the commentary that Loki always has the odds stacked against him (poor bb Loki!!) it was a lot of fun and the art was great.

    This was fun and easier to follow along with than most marvel comics that aren't the true beginning of a run. I tend to feel like I'm missing something reading Marvel, but for the most part, they did a really good job at making sure the right information was there, while still having specific references.

    I was really excited for this comic, but once again we had another Loki series that got cancelled before it could become something brilliant. I have to think that it's a slight against the fact that most good Loki stories contain a meta-commentary on how the character has never been allowed to grow properly, and always forced back into whatever role people need him to play.

Well, he never has been one to just sit back and accept what others demand. Daniel Kiddlesmith can have the honor (such as it is) of being added to the list of writers who understand how to write a good Loki story, riffing on the idea of the stories told of heroes in general. The art work - by Oscar Bazaldua and Andy MacDonald - is pretty good, with really interesting designs for new characters and a great use of colour. Honestly, the reason I rated it as I did is not because of anything against the story. No, it's because it's once again the start of a story that I don't know if we'll ever see the end of. A great read for Loki fans though, and I really hope they might go back to it at some point.

    Considering how good Daniel Kibblesmith’s Lockjaw miniseries was, and how much I like Loki as a character, I was expecting much from this series. I’m glad it ended up delivering and matching my expectations but it is very frustrating that Marvel didn’t give it a fair chance; cancelling a series before it even finishes its first arc is an increasingly worrisome trend from Marvel (see also, Jeremy Whitley’s Future Foundation) and in this case its pretty sad considering how good and promising the f Considering how good Daniel Kibblesmith’s Lockjaw miniseries was, and how much I like Loki as a character, I was expecting much from this series.

Kibblesmith’s take on Loki is distinct enough from Gillen's and Ewing’s previous runs and the idea of giving him a new label (God of Outcasts) could have been used in a very interesting way; sadly, we’ll never see Kibblesmith’s full take on such a concept and that’s a shame. Still, for fans of meta, funny and surprisingly deep comic books or just fans of Loki, this short run is pretty good and I hope by the time the Disney+ series premieres, Marvel gives the character another chance, and doesn’t cut the run short.
