The Rundown: A weapon from Loki’s past will send him on a mission to stop it from wreaking havoc.

Before Loki became the god of stories, his schemes as the god of mischief led him to create a ship fueled by the souls of the damned in order to bring about Ragnarok. Unfortunately, the ship is stolen by frost giants and crashes into the world tree sending pieces of it flying throughout the realms.

With the growing danger of these pieces falling into the wrong hands, Thor presses Loki to retrieve the pieces. His first trip is to Nidavellir where he will discover that he might already be too late.

The Story: Watters crafts a fun, dark story in this first issue. Putting Loki in the position of having to clean up the mess he created is a great use of the character and this newer version of him has no small amount of charm and wit to keep the reader invested in his tale. The story hooked me in the first few pages and the stakes are interesting enough to make me want to see what happens next.

The Art: Peralta delivers some great visuals throughout the story. The characters look great and the environments are engaging throughout.
