June is bringing Loki back to the Marvel Universe to make mischief in a brand-new solo series! As stated earlier in the year, Loki, written by Dan Watters (Sword of Azrael, Arkham City) making his Marvel Comics debut with art by the esteemed Germán Peralta (Black Panther, Maestro), is a four-issue limited series. Today, fans can get an idea of what they’re in for with the reveal of Loki’s main cover drawn by Dustin Nguyen!
Loki’s status as the “nice” God of Stories might be in trouble when powerful, ancient weapons he forged as the God of Lies wind up strewn across the Ten Realms! If these weapons are used by the wrong people they could bring about Ragnarok, so it’s up to Loki to track them down one by one. As he travels to Nidavellir, Kree space, and Earth, Loki’s journey will encompass surprise guest stars, fantastic new characters, and bold twists that have the God of Mischief facing off against heroes, villains, and of course, himself!
“It’s hard to say what a delight it is to be making my Marvel debut, even more so to be doing it with the God of Stories himself- taking him all the way around the Marvel Universe and back again,” Watters shared. “I can’t wait for all to see the beauty Germán’s art is breathing into this tale we have to tell you: full of magic, danger – and if Loki can’t help himself (he can’t) – quite a smidge of mischief.”
“Loki is one of the most interesting characters, not only in comics, but also in mythology, and his ambiguity in all aspects of his life makes him a very interesting character for an artist,” Peralta said. “I always say that I really enjoy drawing villains, but Loki has everything. It was ‘love at first sight’ when I read the script. Dan is amazing, and I’m sure he’s having a lot of fun with it too. I can’t wait to draw Loki’s expressions, since there are always double intentions with him, and it’s going to be very entertaining to play with that, as well as everything related to his universe. Having the opportunity to draw Loki is undoubtedly a beautiful way to start the year. It’s going to be a road full of challenges, but I’m sure it’s going to be a great journey.”
