Storyline

In this somber 'Elsewhere' motion comic tale, Loki Laufeyson, God of mischief and evil, now sits on the throne of Asgard, with everyone he despises in chains, including his stepbrother Thor and stepfather Odin. Loki now faces the duties and hardships of being ruler, including possible executions of his adoptive family, all of which makes him realize that being King isn't what it's cracked up to be. When he learns from god Baldur that even fate itself is against him and his rule, he reexamines his difficult life and painful relationship with his domineering but not entirely uncaring stepbrother and makes a fateful choice to go against his predetermined grizzly fate. But which path to take in order to achieve this? The one of revenge and dominance by killing Thor or the one of hope and progress by making piece with him, if it's not too late?

A thing of beauty
18 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

I loved the comic mini series by Rodi and Ribic that came out some years ago and I love the visual take Marvel Knights have created based on it. This is not superhero "Hulk smash" material, but a powerful character study of a villain. As in the comic, the visual rendition is lush, even stunning and the language is beautifully medieval.

At approx. 60 min. runtime, a bit more than 50 if you don't count repeating intros and outros, the animation style is reminiscent of a web comic, yet superior as character sketches are subtly animated and mixed with CGI to create the feeling of medieval cut-outs.

Beware, this is not your every day cartoon. Just as "Watchmen" was the first graphic novel, this may very well be the first cartoon theatre play, the topic being as meta as the two-dimensionality of comic characters. The creators of this animation are to be commended, as they have tried to make a cartoon for adults only (no, not THAT kind) and succeeded. It is truly a thing of beauty, a joy for ever.
