Graphic Novel Review of Loki Agent of Asgard Vol. 1: Trust Me by Al Ewing

Synopsis: "Kid Loki's all grown up - and the God of Mischief is stronger, smarter, sexier and just plain sneakier than ever before. As Asgardia's one-man secret service, he's ready to lie, cheat, steal, bluff and snog his way through the twistiest, turniest and most treacherous missions the All-Mother can throw at him...starting with a heart-stopping heist on Avengers Tower! And that's just the beginning, as Loki takes on Lorelei in Monte Carlo's casinos, and heads back to the dawn of Asgard to join its greatest heroes on a quest for a certain magical sword! But when Loki puts together a crew to crack the deepest dungeons of Asgardia itself, there may be one plot twist too many for even Loki to handle!"

My Review: I was so looking forward to this but was pretty disappointed. I wasn't really a fan of the art (or at least the depictions of Loki) and the storyline was all over the place, one page we are in the now, then we are previously and the way in the past and then back in the now/future, it gets a little annoying. It also ties in to a lot of other comics (especially the Avengers) which might be great for some people but for those just starting to branch into this area, not so much. I don't want to have to go back and read all of those past issues in order to understand and enjoy this one.
My Rating: This wasn't my favorite, it had too many references to other comics and very little of actual myths.  I give it a rating of Two Paws.


  1. Aww too bad it didn't work for you. I have friends that think Loki can do no wrong. I guess he can.

    1. I really enjoy Loki in the myths and have enjoyed several re-telling stories but this one just did not work for me at all.
