Thor & Loki: Double Trouble: 12/26/21

Thor & Loki: Double Trouble

Thor & Loki: Double Trouble by Mariko Tamaki and Gurihiru is a standalone graphic novel that has Thor and Loki isakaied. Loki, bored with Thor's self adoration and groupies tricks him into stealing something. One thing leads to another and the two find themselves somewhere else.

It's the second comic collaboration between Mariko Tamaki and Gurihiru I've read. While this one was cute, it didn't tickle my fancy the same way that Spider-Man & Venom: Double Trouble (2020). A big part of that reaction is the the fact that I'm a Spider-Man fan and not an Avengers fan. I haven't actually seen any of the films that feature these two.

Since I'm not already a fan, the comic has to carry itself on its own merits. It does but to a point. The second half of the book goes into the "what if the brothers were actually sisters" scenario. This part falls flat because of Loki.

Here's the thing, Loki is canonically a gender fluid shapeshifter. So when Loki-prime says there is "only one" Loki, I really wanted that to be the case. I wanted them to already have access to this world and to have already been Loki's sister. Essentially I wanted Loki to be Tigger. It would have been funnier and would have made more sense.

Four stars
