Yeah, I am making Julie do this.
I am sorry but I continuously felt like I was missing something in the Thor comics when Thor found Loki. I kept rereading hoping I had skipped a few pages. There was no build-up unless a sick chase scene somehow strengthened their relationship. More pages were wasted on Parisian scenery than on Loki’s self-discovery. It bothered me.
Now, I will admit that I don’t read a lot of comics. Back when I did, I read Dark Horse stuff. Neil Gaiman must have spoiled me because I have been really put off by how character development seems like filler for gratuitous fight scenes in the comics I have read with BB Loki. That, and the fact that storytelling has been spread so thin among various books that you literally have to amass a small bookshelf worth of comics to have an inkling of what is going on with just one character.
So, in response, Julie and I will be revisiting the scene in Thor that leads up to Journey into Mystery because…. why not?
