Loki Agent of Asgard is certainly pulling the heart strings of many Loki fans – movie verse and classic combined – however rather than have us be sent to Nerdki who burns, we see the past, in an age where gods are still worshipped and where a simple thunder storm is seen as those gods being unhappy.  Here is where some eagle-eyed readers will notice something interesting, an old man with a missing tooth and a head dress that is broken on one side; that is just something to keep in mind for later on in the comic.

When we see Nerdki, who is now having to face the original Loki – the one who tried to cheat death and failed – and Kid Loki, the one who Won against all odds.  Both of these character’s sound bitter, although you find yourself feeling more for Kid Loki, because of who he was and how he was when he was alive, though the shadow of the original Loki, essentially a curse to any other copy of Loki, will never be forgotten.

Nerdki now has a choice, and the two of them give him his two options.  It’s a clear struggle for him to pick what he wants to be, either way he’d be damned, until his mortal friend, Verity calls him in the middle of this – which is rather amusing since it’s Daft Punk that is her ring tone, leaving many wondering ‘what ring tone does she have?’

What Nerdki does changes the course of what King Loki planned, it changes him too and some people may have laready seen that Nerdki now has a rather interesting new costume change – yes, another one, but this one suits his new title that he has given himself, that Verity has helped him find.

This is making the whole series so much more interesting, the ending has a nice twist to it and I cannot wait to read more about this new Loki, which certainly will bring about a new change in direction of the book, although I will be sad when Lee Garbett, the artist of the comic is leaving after issue 17, his art work has worked so well and matched the tone of the comic.  It will be interesting to see who will be taking his place, but right now? This is certainly a series to continue following.
