Loki #3

Post by Blackcyclops » 11 Sep 2019, 23:01

Not since Slott’s mythic and legendary Earth A and B seni-retcon has an author done such a fantastically comic book-y/tongue in cheek/awesome move as Kibblesmith did here with the House of Ideas...I know Cable’s gonna not like it but the romantic and dreamer in me just loves this little turn with Now and Then.

I don't like it lol. It is TOO meta. Ewing's stab at the sliding timescale was more appealing to me. Though I do get the romantic part of this and how it definitely is fitting with the character of Loki.

The question is was any of it real? Or is this all a mind-f#*$ of some kind? The last page casts everything in doubt again. This book so far is appropriately chaotic. Kibblesmith is impressive with his understanding of the character (at least the modern incarnation).

You know I’ve been re-reading Classic Thor and really Loki truly was only interesting once pre-JMS and that was during Simonson’s great final arc...otherwise, he was wayyyyyy more one-note than a Doom or Magneto.
