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!Amazon •

Kid-Loki from Young Avengers is back, and now he’s all grown up! The trickster god is working for the All-Mother to rid himself of his past sins and become one of the good guys. Don’t worry though, he’s still a conniving trickster carried on from Kieron Gillen’s writing.
As much as I really wanted to love this comic, I can only say I “liked” it. Loki’s character is top notch; sassy, sarcastic, and tricky. But the story line is jumpy and usually refers to a different comic in the Marvel-verse for cross-refrences to key points in the story. It feels like this comic just has a supporting role instead of it’s own leading role.
The art is fantastic. There are some wonderful characters with very expressive designs which is essential to me when reading graphic novels.
Overall, I recommend this to anyone who is already reading Mighty Avengers, Thor, etc..
