I think for a lot of people, the best part about the new Thor movies has been Thor's charming asshole brother, Loki. It appears that Marvel has taken notice and is making a new comic starring the villain: Loki, Agent of Asgard.

This is clearly a deviation more in line with the popular movie version of Loki, just check out this first frame:

Holy fan-service! For comparison, this is how he usually shows up.

Except for that time when he was a woman. Anyway, the comic is pretty fun. Loki has decided that he took on the role of villain in response to his brother taking the role of one of Earth's heroes, and in doing so he let himself change from the god of mischief to a god of evil. Somehow he has convinced his mom that he is ready to change his ways, so she has let him free in order to go on missions for Asgard. With each completed mission he has another one of his crimes erased from memory and mythology, creating new tales to replace the old.

For his first mission, Loki is tasked to stab his brother Thor with the "Sword of Truth," which not only harms you like a normal sword would, it makes you see truths about yourself that you don't want to acknowledge. "It always hurts," explains Loki. Thor had been acting like a bully and brat and Freyja decided he needed to be taken down a peg. Loki accomplishes this with his normal set of tools: trickery and lies. Its fun to see him show up and instantly have the Avengers fighting among themselves, despite them knowing exactly what he is doing.

Altogether I liked it, and will keep following Loki, Agent of Asgard. It'll have to hold me over until Loki gets his own movie.
