Loki’s a trickster so it’s all been a trick! I won’t spoil it and say how or what has been a trick, but the biggest trick has to be Esquivel’s–he got me to read the whole series.
The problem with wrapping up the entire comic in a reveal–and by entire comic, I mean all four issues–is there not being anything else going on for said comic. Esquivel wasted the last couple issues; he throws in some desperate attempts at character development here, then ignores them a page or two later. All because of that amazing reveal.
As reveals go, it’s not bad. But there’s nothing else in the issue or comic. I remember the first issue being really tightly told and then the series went down hill. This final issue would be the absolute bottom, with Esquivel wasting many pages on lame action scenes.
Loki’s a disappointment.
