CBR Review: Loki #4

I recently reviewed Loki #4 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The mini-series focusing on the trickster god concludes with an issue that tells you everything you ever need to know about Loki, boiling him down to his essence and tying up the plot that began in the first issue. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa shows that he gets Loki and weaves that insight through various Norse myths, but never quite makes Loki the hero of the story. He’s the protagonist, yet he never comes across as someone we would want to get behind. He doesn’t even rise to the level of anti-hero. That, coupled with the art assistance from Al Barrionuevo, who does a somewhat inconsistent job, holds this issue back from being great."
