Users who pulled this comic:


  1. I love love love this book. Can’t wait for the team to finally be together and do stuff.

  2. Uh oh, so Miss America Chavez is Hate-Edge?

  3. Am I already supposed to know the back story of Miss America or will it be explained in this book?

  4. Weirdly, I feel a bit old for this book. I still feel compelled to read it though.

  5. Hoping for a few less threads this issue…

  6. Loved the Tyrion gag:)

  7. Yikes. I think either I’m not cool enough for this book, or this book isn’t as cool as its writers think it is.

    Either way, I’m about to drop this.

    • You, sir, have said my very thoughts. This book desperately wants to be a punk-rock comic, but it doesn’t have the swagger to pull it off.

      I love Gillen forever for JiM, but I am done with this for now.

    • Different strokes I guess, cause I really enjoy this book. It might be because I tend to gravitate towards the books that feel like they take place in their own corner of the Marvel U, like the current Daredevil, Winter Soldier, and Hawkeye for example. This book has a similar feel to me, in that while it uses the larger Marvel U as a setting, it doesn’t feel like it worries about tying into the rest of the goings-on. Plus after enjoying Gillen’s run on JiM, I still crave my kid Loki fix.

      I thought Miss America was pretty cool too, her random instances of Spanish made me laugh every time, I hope that was the intention.

    • I had the same reaction as TiQuinn and CaseyJustice. At first I thought I was going to dig this series. I certainly like the art and Kid Loki is a fantastic character. But after the last two issues I’ve realized either this book is too hip for its own good or I’m not hip enough.

      Either way it’s not for me and I’m dropping it. But there are plenty of other Marvel books I’m enjoying so it’s all good.

  8. ” . . . can we talk like civilized superbeings?”

    I came into this series with high expectations, and still with each issue I am loving it even more. It really feets like the narrative (& team) is coming together now. I can see why Gillen’s style may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I think that it’s great. And McKelvie keeps excelling on the art as well — Loki’s facial expressions at the club were worth the price of admission alone. The cover for next issue looks pretty awesome too . . .

    Early contender for Pick of the Week, but I’ve plenty in my stack to work my way through first . . .
