This standalone is for long-time fans, or as an introduction to Loki comics.

I stumbled upon this title by accident, and it was a gods-send (if you'll pardon the pun). Loki is a fun character to play with already, but for me, Kibblesmith truly does that playfulness justice. When is Loki one step ahead, and when is he just faking it? I don't care, the costume changes are always on point and the wit is always sharp. One thing I struggle with regarding super hero-focused comic books, is the convoluted nature of a set of stories about an individual that has gone through so many different iterations over time. While this book referenced others, others which I now intend to read because this story sent me down a Loki-themed book vortex, the reader is kept well in the loop with asides and does not need to worry about where the story fits in relation to much of anything else. I don't often keep up with a series of comics, but I might just keep an eye out for this one.
I would recommend this for even the most casual Marvel fan, middle school age and older. I think the tone of this book best matches the first Avengers film, and Thor: Ragnarok.
