Continuing the tale of Loki, King of Jotunheim
- Spoiler: show
I thought this issue was much better than the first. It more clearly lays out the sort of direction this book will go in. And it looks like it will resemble the vibe of Ewing's excellent Agent of Asgard series. I mean I am sort of conflicted about playing with House of Ideas concept from No Road Home, which served a very specific meta-purpose there, but it can't be denied that it fits very well within the idea of Loki as God of Stories as he has at times been called. Through the first two issues Kibblesmith seems to want to play with many story bits others have introduced and I am excited at the possibilities of where he could be going. And Loki seeking to become an Avenger is so nicely full circle from where he began. I wonder if he actually pulls off handling Mjolnir at some point or if there will be trickery involved (it is Loki after all). And if Loki joined the Avengers where could he go from there? He seems never satisfied with anything, which I guess is why he is also the God of Chaos.
The scene with Nightmare was horribly depressing. That is how you set up a villain that you want people to loathe! Although I also was under the impression he could not so strongly effect the real world in that way. I wonder if that will be explained...
