Good day people of the internets! Today is the first installment of our weekly review post. The dates may change to Fridays, but here is the result of today’s haul. Here we shall look over some different comic issues we have. New, used, known, unknown, the works. Also, some new and used books that we sell or that has been read will be spotlighted here. I hope you can enjoy the start of this little shindig.
Today I read the first issue if Marvel’s Loki. The narrative style is told in the person point of view, from Loki’s perspective. It was a solid read, getting the audience caught up from Marvel’s big event that has gone on this year, War or the Realms. Written by Daniel Kibblesmith, the artwork by Oscar Bazaldua, and cover by Ozgur Curiel, the creative team takes on a start of this new series based on the popular character. To avoid spoilers, I won’t give details until after people have had a chance to read it but here is the gist: Loki is found enjoying his newfound freedom in life after the events from War of the Realms. I personally found the narration on point with Loki and how he can spin the story on the events happening around him. It is though we get a look into the god’s mind and know just what he is thinking when he is thinking it. Building up a story that could contain some very enticing characters in the future, we see how it all ends. One thing to keep in mind, is that the story focuses on the God of Mischief, with some tie ins of course. I look forward to see how he grows with his new post as a king, and how it will make him make some choices on if he continues to take life by the fun horns, or will he learn how to be a rule worthy of praise? Considering there is a ginormous snowman in the issue, I will say this: only Loki could find the balance between reckless fun and tough ruling.
Thanks for the this short tidbit of a review. Next week (or maybe later this week, who knows?) we may touch on The Amazing Spider Man #25 in anticipation of #26 or the new Batman run. Stay tuned to find out on the same Bat-Channel at the Bat-Time.
