I guess it’s been a while since I’ve read a new Marvel comic. I didn’t realize they’ve done everything possible to make the Avengers as much like the movie Avengers… down to this young hot Loki.
Writer Al Ewing makes references back to old Marvel comics and events and so on, but he’s really going for a crossover audience. He doesn’t do a bad job with it either. Loki: Agent of Asgard is fun and fast; it’s mischievous in how its amusing. Ewing knows all the right jokes to make.
But there’s only so much one can do with the story of an Asgardian secret agent who fights with the Avengers. He can fight with the Avengers and go to Asgard. There’s some witty comments about magic in here too, but there’s not a lot. It’s a fast food comic.
Lee Garbett’s art is okay. He’s not great at superheroes.
