With the first season of “Loki” winding down, I’m going to take a look at “Thor & Loki: Double Trouble # 1” from earlier this year.

The premise of this series starts off with a whimsical look at Thor & Loki’s brotherly relationship during The God of Thunder’s early days on Asgard, and from what I read, it’s a very fun book that highlights all of the mischiefs that Loki tends to get Thor into and the crazy repercussions that occur because of them. Mariko Tamaki & Gurihiu delivers a Thor/Loki story that comes off like a sitcom (It does have that “Two & A Half Men” vibe to it, although that may or may not be a good thing) as well as taking elements from “Thor: Ragnarok” and putting them together for a truly entertaining story that sets the stage for the remainder of this series. If you enjoy seeing Thor and Loki trade insults, trying to one-up each other and the former always having to give in to the latter’s peer pressure tactics, “Thor & Loki: Double Trouble” is a series you should check out because it’s great to see this type of brotherly relationship in the actual comics and not always be restricted to The MCU.

Well, that’s it for me this week. Starting next week I’ll be back with a regular review (Something weird); Then after that, I’ll kick off a slew of reviews of some of my favorite “What If…?” issues (Since the animated series will make its debut on Disney+ next month); So thank for sticking around and I will see you all next time.
