A Different Kind Of Loki

The most loved bad guy since…umm..well another bad guy doesn’t spring to mind, but thanks to that talented thespian (and dancer! look at him go!) Tom Hiddleston’s three turns as the evil Loki in recent Marvel films, Loki has never been more popular. And along come publisher BOOM! Studios with a new take on Loki. This looks pretty wild, and it’s released on my birthday!

LOKI GOES FROM MISCHIEF TO METAL IN NEW ORIGINAL SERIES

FROM BOOM! STUDIOS

Award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios is pleased to announce the February debut of LOKI: RAGNAROK AND ROLL, a heavy metal twist on Norse mythology. Writer Eric Esquivel (FREELANCERS) and artist Jerry Gaylord (FANBOYS VS. ZOMBIES) show what happens when you take the classic Norse god Loki and throw him into a rock and roll band in the underground goth clubs of Los Angeles in this new BOOM! original series.

“LOKI: RAGNAROK AND ROLL is one of those crazy mash-up ideas that, when you see them put together, is immensely entertaining,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “Combine that with the talents of Eric and Jerry—two of BOOM!’s home-grown talents—and it makes for the perfect recipe for a rockin’ good time!”

WHY WE LOVE IT: Up-and-coming writer Eric Esquivel first caught our attention with Thor: The Unkillable Thunder Christ, and wowed us with his work on FREELANCERS. When he told us he wanted to bring those sensibilities to the trickster god Loki, we had to say, “Yes!” Pairing him with FANBOYS VS. ZOMBIES artist Jerry Gaylord sealed the deal.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Loki steps out of the shadow cast by his thunderous brother as Norse mythology crosses over with the only thing on Earth as wild and crazy—rock and roll!

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: What happens when Odin banishes Loki to Earth? He finds a world of outcasts that appreciate his style! While his kin sharpen their weapons, he picks up an electric guitar.

LOKI: RAGNAROK AND ROLL #1 arrives in comic shops on February 19th with a cover price of $3.99 under Diamond order code DEC130966.

Geeky Shirts

You’re a nerd. You need a t-shirt, because as we all know by now, geeks and nerds are cool, so you can be a fashionable fan now. I must say, until recently, the majority of my wardrobe consisted primarily of shirts with pictures of superheroes on them, but having recently lost some weight, a drastic change in apparel was implemented. Time to wear and declare my fondness for comics/films/cartoons once more I say.

However, before you look at the pretty options below, a word of warning – please make sure you actually like the character/series that is emblazoned on your clothing of choice. There’s nothing more irksome than a pretend fan of something pop culture related. In other words, don’t wear a Megatron t-shirt simply because you like the live action films starring Megan Fox. Here are a few superb selections as seen in the current issue of the Previews catalogue, from Captain America’s movie sequel logo to some great Godzilla art from his excellent Half Century War mini-series from IDW, and you can see a few more exclusive apparel options here.
