snickfic: (monica rambeau)
I just caught up on reading stuff from the last three weeks or so.

First, above the cut: I subscribed to Loki: Agent of Asgard almost solely because of how impressed I've been with Al Ewing's work on Mighty Avengers. Frankly, Mighty Avengers seems to have most everything against it: it's got Greg Land on art and a relative unknown writing, its first three issues were tied up in a crossover that no one I know paid any attention to, and I, personally, have very little interest in the Avengers side of the Marvel universe. And yet Ewing keeps me consistently entertained while introducing and juggling a cast of characters I have almost no familiarity in. Even the Infinity tie-in arc felt self-contained enough to be comprehensible.

(Not that this is so much down to Ewing, but I also, it must be said, enjoy the fact of characters of color not only being the majority, but also walking on and off panel in cameos, completely unremarked upon. It's easy for me to forget how many such Marvel characters there are, because so often there's only one or two of them to a team.)

I totally understand if you just can't take the Land art on this book, but at the very least EVERYONE should pick up the three issues Valerio Schiti is arting, starting in February. And also everyone who's even marginally interested in the Loki comic should give it a closer look, because I expect Ewing to do good things on it.

Now, onto vaguely spoilery things.
