In the aftermath of AXIS, Loki is the Hero Of Asgard no more. But one change remains: The God of Lies can only ever tell the truth. Now, Loki’s brother, the Odinson, visits his apartment, to talk of cabbages, kings... and Kid Loki. This is it.

Axis is probably my least favorite event in ages thanks to the lame twist of "It's opposite day!" being the main takeaway. However, bad events are often a time when good writers shine; Starman came out of Zero Hour and Thunderbolts couldn't have existed without Heroes Reborn. And so we have Al Ewing's take on an inverted Loki, and issue 8 features him doing something utterly hilarious.

But first, the greatest terrible villain brag ever )

"It's something fairly important to me on a personal level -- the idea of learning how to be yourself, to accept yourself, to not let other people's ideas of you define who you are. I think that's something that's important to a lot of our readers as well. Unfortunately, it's a more difficult proposition for a fictional character, especially in a medium that trends so strongly towards nostalgia. There's a lot of forward momentum in comics, but it's always hard-won and you never quite know what'll stick, so the stakes for Loki are real and fairly high." -- Al Ewing

'How the truth can hurt -- and how it can be used as a weapon -- is a theme that seems so obvious now that I can't believe I didn't intend to have it in there from the start. I mean, In "Loki: AoA" the truth is literally a sword, for goodness' sake. I have no idea where my mind was.' -- Al Ewing

This year I attended the second London Super Comic Convention, and had a LOT of fun.

There were some great panels (Though I only attended the "Batman through the Ages" one, which had Brian Bolland, Gary Frank, David Finch and Neal Adams on the panel (and included the unforgettable moment of Neal Adams testing the microphone by singing "Over at the Frankenstein Place" to the room, and did it well too!) and some absolutely terrific cosplayers (The Rule 63 Deadshot was excellent, the Jack of Hearts was spectacular, the G'nort was... unforgettable, and the two little lads of colour (One was black, the other was, I think, Indian), who can't have been more than five or six, as Young Justice Nightwing and Captain America and who were wandering around hand in hand (Their dad's were with them I hasten to add), were among the most preciously adorable things I've seen in a long time (and I mean that in an absolutely wholesome sense)

But you know me... Artists here I come! )

So, one of the comics coming out this Wednesday, as you're probably not aware, is part three of Fear Itself: The Deep. It's a non-essential tie-in to a pretty mundane event, produced by a little known creative team, and the book's biggest stars are Namor and Doctor Strange. It's not much of a surprise that most people haven't noticed it exists.

But it is a shame, because it's actually pretty good.

As we've seen with the debates with this post...


...there's a bit of controversy regarding the direction of the Bat books. Some object to Bruce not being a loner. What's with these groups and others wearing the Bat symbol? What's with people looking to Batman as an inspiration when he's just supposed to scare the crap out of everybody, good and evil aike? Bruce publicly funding superheroes? What's with that candle swearing ceremony thing?

They all date back decades, in some cases almost as long as Batman has existed.

A look back...

DCUBlog has the preview of the final issue of the Return of Bruce Wayne, and hopefully a lot of the trippy questions will be answered.

At least the art is much better.
