ESCAPE FROM STARK UNLIMITED! Restless with his new duties after the War of the Realms, Loki seeks out the advice of the closest thing Earth has to a king — TONY STARK, THE INVINCIBLE IRON MAN! — Close enough, right? But it turns out old Shell-head isn’t happy to see Loki on account of all that stuff he did. Now the God of Mischief/Stories/Evil/Chaos has to outsmart the cleverest man in Midgard or die (again) trying. Meanwhile, could Thor be hatching a mischievous plot of his own?
GEEKY GUY COMICS VERDICT:
After the great first issue I was super excited for this to be released and it didn’t disappoint. We all know that Loki is the God of Mischief but after the events in WOTR as of late he’s been playing the role of the hero…(mind boggling right) lol. In true Loki fashion though being a basic hero isn’t enough, in fact its pretty boring for him, so he’s decided to apply to be, wait for it.. an Avenger!!! For me this was an amazing piece of writing by @danielkibblesmith because if you are a fan of the Avengers franchise you will remember that it was his mischievous ways that brought the team together for the first time, so what more of a perfect fit could it be?
As for the story, its pretty much based around the building of the relationship between and Tony Stark and Loki. As we start Tony Stark isn’t exactly happy or expecting Loki when he shows-up out of the blue. Loki wants to be an Avenger, but he’s not exactly all that experienced with the idea of a job interview, to be honest he probably hasn’t ever had one. With that said, Stark has a very vivid memory of the long history Loki has with the Avengers. He has no intention of letting , who he still classes as a villain join but Loki has other plans in what is another deeply charming 20 page issue.
This issue is largely a comic drama. It is full of fantastic moments that extend the plot in various directions, but for me, the interaction between Loki and Tony Stark is what really brings this issue to life. Bazaldua could have simply allowed Kibblesmith’s clever dialogue to set the drama, Instead, Bazaldua partners effortlessly with him. Overall its great to see Kibblesmith and Bazaldua establishing a firm foundation for a stand alone Loki series that will be a wanted edition to any comic collection.
GEEKY GUY COMICS RATING 4 OUT OF 5.
WRITING/ STORY: 4
