Loki: Agent of Asgard #17 Review by (August 25, 2015)
Comments: Final issue of series. Cover title: LAST DAYS OF LOKI: AGENT OF ASGARD, a tie-in to SECRET WARS (3). Loki notes that the Silver Surfer also exists in the whiteness of non-existence; see SS's own book for details.

Review: I will be honest: I couldn’t follow most of Loki’s opaque philosophizing in the King Loki and climactic pages. So one of Marvel’s most entertaining titles leaves us on an odd note with writer Al Ewing having Something Important to say that lost me. Nice try though. Meanwhile, Le Garbett’s artwork kept everything amusing, especially in the interplay between Loki and Verity. Hope we see them again.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Loki: Agent of Asgard #17 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Loki and the ghost of Verity Willis stand before The Gods Above Gods. These Gods feed on stories and demand that Loki, the new God of Stories, provide for them. Loki spins a tale of the original storytellers in prehistoric times who made sense out of a frightening world. He then mentions the gods of Norse myth, suggesting that the stories about them were so powerful that it brought them into being. Loki then wonders what stories the gods tell—and whether such stories brought the Gods Above Gods into existence. The G.A.G. are so afraid of the implications that they vanish into the void leaving Loki and Verity alone in the great white void. Verity asks is what Loki said was true but he doesn’t know….


They come upon King Loki sulking in the white expanse. An amused Loki unmasks the old villain to reveal another variation of young Loki—the one who killed himself at the end of the Siege of Asgard—who was reborn as the nicer one, only to find that Asgard wanted the old evil Loki back. “Our” Loki comforts his alter ego and sends him off contented….


Loki tells Verity that there will be a future even though they can’t tell what it will be—so Loki draws an exit on the whiteness and invites Verity through to see what’s on the other side….
