An actress wearing a costume that may or may not bear striking similarities to that of Lady Sif’s, has appeared beneath Tom Hiddleston’s armpit. Am I batshit crazy? Possibly. But let’s not worry about that right now… Continue reading6 THOR comic panels we don’t want Taika Waititi to see (or do we?)
Generally, we could safely expect that much of the hilariously cheesy, outlandishly weird and at times, batshit crazy comic panels of the 80’s and 90’s would be taken with a grain of salt by the folks who are involved in the whole movie making process. But now we have Taika Waititi to contend with, and a list of comic panels we probably don’t want him to see. Or… Do we? Continue readingNew Thor Ragnarok logo and… Loki’s new look?
Spoiler alert: Thor will be trading Mjolnir for a ghettoblaster. Loki will wear his undies on the outside. Q*bert for the cameo! Continue readingWill Loki ever find redemption? More importantly… Should he?
Few villains have ever been as complex and easy to love as Tom Hiddleston’s adaption of Loki.

For now.
Because there’s enough negativity in the world, damnit. Continue readingThor Ragnarok’s Comic Book Influences
When media discuss the potential comic influence of Thor Ragnarok, they tend to fall back upon Michael Oeming’s comic run. In particularly, his separation of Loki’s head from his body. But let’s not forget Walter Simonson. He who wrote of Ragnarok in the Surtur Saga. Continue readingBroken Things by DreamFlight
I have been following Broken Things since around chapter three, and although the story is not yet complete, I can … Continue readingReview: Paper Planes & Playground Games by Barkour
Written from Sif’s POV, Paper Planes & Playground Games is a lovely pre-Thor tale that spans the adolescent years of Sif, Loki and Thor. The rich history of these characters and the careful manner in which they’re written makes for a convincing read. The narrative has a poetic beauty infused with nostalgic undertones, a touch of angst, and an easy-to-read flow that I can’t help but envy. Continue reading
