LOKI: RAGNAROK AND ROLL #1-4 (Eric Esquivel / Jerry Gaylord)

Après s’être attaqué au mythe de Thor avec le one-shot “Thor: Unkillable Thunder Christ”, le scénariste Eric Esquivel s’intéressera à son vilain petit canard de demi-frère qui, chassé d’Asgard, squatte la scène avec un groupe de Métal. La partie graphique est signée Jerry Gaylord (Fanboys Vs. Zombis) tandis que Alexi Ziritt s’occupe de la couverture.

Author(s): Eric Esquivel

Cover Artist(s): A: Alexis Ziritt
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.[/quote]

[quote=“Eric Esquivel”]I’m way into Joseph Campbell, and his idea of “The Monomyth”–the idea that all stories are basically the same story, from Star Wars to The Torah to the third episode of the second season of Boy Meets World.

It’s insane to me that every religion ever created—these stories that were written thousands and thousands of years ago, millions of miles away from each other—are still relevant. That’s either proof that Gods and monsters really exist, or it’s proof that we’re all more alike than we could ever imagine…and either reality is beautiful to me.

I don’t want to spoil anything—but “Loki: Ragnarok And Roll” doesn’t just star the Gods of Norse myth…[/quote]

Ci-dessous, deux croquis des personnages par Jerry Gaylord:

[quote]To me, Thor represents the old way of doing things. He’s the fratty son of a politician – Odin – whose only skills are speaking very slowly and bludgeoning his enemies to death with a mallet. He’s essentially the George W. Bush of Gods.

Loki’s skill set is more subtle. He’s the Lord of Language. But the beauty of the modern era is that words finally have a greater impact than violence. Edward Snowden did more damage to government corruption with an email than anyone could have done with a lightning bolt. The young people of Tehran have figured out how to use Twitter to whip up massive, regime toppling protests within minutes. Try doing that with a hammer.[/quote]

What happens when Loki goes from Norse god to rock god? Sex, fame, power! Loki becomes the world’s biggest rock star and gains a legion of devout worshippers! It’s a new experience for Loki.
