Panel of the Week: 4/15/15

Pickings were slim this week. DC is doing their Convergence stunt, fully 1005 of which is half-assed books with some really awful art, so all their books just eliminated themselves from contention without even trying. For whatever reason, nothing in any of the indies this week grabbed me. Most of Marvel let me down too, which is why the winner this week goes to the full-page splash on the final page of Loki: Agent of Asgard #13, written by Al Ewing and drawn by Lee Garbett.

Loki has been on an interesting journey over the last few years, dating back to his decision to sacrifice himself during Marvel's Siege event, which led to him being reborn as Kid Loki in Kieron Gillen's brilliant Journey Into Mystery storyline which saw a ghost of Loki eventually kill Kid Loki to become teen Loki. Teen Loki goes on to become the Agent of Asgard, doing missions for the All-Mother in an attempt to erase his evil past and prevent himself from becoming the evil King Loki. Yeah, it doesn't make any sense in recap form, but it all makes for a great read. Agent of Asgard isn't as good as Journey Into Mystery was, but the end result of teen Loki's battle against King Loki, where he gives up being the God of Lies to become this unknown God of Stories is an interesting change. But it beggars the question, aren't stories just lies anyway? Might make for an interesting read as it continues...
