Has anyone here read Kieron Gillen's take on Loki in Journey Into Mystery? I don't read many superhero-type comics unless I know the writer; Gillen I know mainly from his video game journalism (especially on Rock Paper Shotgun), and I'd heard good things about his comic book writing. Loki seemed like a potentially interesting character in The Avengers, although that was mostly due to Tom Hiddleston's portrayal of the character.

Anyway, volume 1 arrived yesterday and so far it seems pretty cool. Very mythological (and there are some bits at the beginning that remind me of Gaiman's mythological bits in Sandman). Just wondering whether anyone else has been following the series.

I haven't but I've always liked Loki as a character, so i'd love to hear how you get on with it.

I don't know the Marvel version of the character (beyond what's in The Avengers), but so I definitely like the characterisation. Apparently Tom Hiddleston is a fan of the series, for what it's worth.

Will let you know once I've finished vol. 1.
