We’ve been obsessed with all things Marvel this year, especially the way they’ve championed the television series model, releasing new material on Disney+ and fleshing out beloved characters which brings us to the Loki Comics. The show Loki, starring Tom Hiddleston, was the most recent marathon-worthy drama, with Tom Hiddleston repeating his role as one of our favorite Marvel characters and occasional villains.
MCU Loki has enchanted everyone since Thor, but the comic book Loki has been causing mayhem for quite some time. In 1962, in Journey into Mystery #85, Loki made his Marvel debut as Thor’s brother and rival, the god of mischief.
Loki Comics Chronological List – sort of

However, Loki’s scheme is revealed, and the Avengers must now confront Loki. This is an extremely bizarre comic, but it demonstrates that Loki is powerful enough to be frightening while also being mischievous enough to be entertaining for Loki Comics.
THOR & LOKI: BLOOD BROTHERS BY ROB RODI, ET AL.
This one is primarily influenced by Norse mythology and Loki lore. When Hela demands Thor’s soul, Loki takes the Throne of Asgard by force. However, when he attempts to manage the kingdom, he must cope with Hela and his conflicting feelings towards his brother. This is a wonderful place to start if you want to learn more about Loki and his relationship with the Asgardians.
VOTE LOKI BY LANGDON FOSS, ET AL.
We know Loki as the god of mischief, trickster, Thor’s brother, and nemesis of the Avengers, but President of the United States? Yup. Loki runs for President in this hilarious four-issue Loki Comics serial. President Loki can be found in episode 5 of the Disney+ series.
THOR #364 BY WALTER SIMONSON, ET AL.

THOR #617 BY MATT FRACTION, ET AL.
Kid Loki is the reincarnation of Loki, who was killed during the Asgard Siege.

THOR #5 BY DONNY CATES, ET AL.
Lady Loki makes her Marvel debut in this issue. In the Ragnarok event, the original Loki dies and is reincarnated in the body of Lady Sif. Although her job in the MCU differs from her one in the books, this is where Sylvie, the female Loki version in the show, got her start. Sylvie appears to be a cross between Lady Loki and the Enchantress in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
SECRET INVASION DARK REIGN BY BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS, ET AL.
Sylvie Lushton, the second Enchantress, is introduced in this series. Sylvie is granted powers by Loki in the comics, which results in her joining the Young Avengers for a brief time. Sylvie is believed to be a cross between Lady Loki and Sylvie Lushton in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and in the Loki Comics.
LOKI: AGENT OF ASGARD BY AL EWING, ET AL.
Loki is a secret operative for the All-Mother in this book, and he travels on adventures over time and space. He meets different versions of himself, including Lady Loki, on his escapades. He even addresses his past and the decisions that lead him there, contrasting them with the varied courses taken by another version of Loki in their lives. A great solo loki comics.
THOR & LOKI: DOUBLE TROUBLE BY MARIKO TAMAKI, ET AL.
This series is for you if you want to see more female versions of Loki. Thor and Loki is a children’s book that explores a timeline in which Jane Foster is Thor. Lady Loki also appears, albeit she is different from the Lady Loki presented previously in the comics, implying that there may be more Female Loki versions out there. A great addition to Loki Comics.
