Pg 107: Not on Fire

This week in Epic Fail: Amuletts notices that she is not on fire.

Creator’s Commentary: I was contemplating whether to include this or not i.e. had I inferred enough that magic was protecting her from this inhospital environment just by that fact she is there and not on fire/asphyxiating? Or would it look like a big plot hole?

Mainly I decide to include it because it makes it clearer why Amuletts thinks Loki is kinda a nice guy. At least in this moment. 

EDIT: Oh poop, I got Loki’s speech bubble the wrong color in panel 2!!

Pg 104: You’re Lying

This week in Epic Fail: Loki thinks everyone hates him

Creator’s Commentary: You don’t hate Loki do you? Show him some love!

For some reason I can only here ‘You’re lying’ in Kryten’s voice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3HzCAwOpH0

Loki’s not beyond stooping to emotional manipulation. Is there a grain of truth to it? Who knows.

Pg 103: Upgrade

This week in Epic fail: Loki gives Amuletts’ equipment an upgrade.

Creator’s Commentary:

(Remember Epic fail updates on The First Tuesday of the Month).

Loki changes Amuletts’ outfit and weapon. Do you know what he changes them too and where they are from? Put your guesses in the comments!

I remembered Loki’s chest-thingy in this comic. It’s supposed to be there all the time, but looks different in every panel. This is a reference to the webcomic ‘Life and Death’ where Chaos has a t-shirt that changes in every panel to represent his chaotic nature. I liked that idea.

Pg 98: What Lies Beneath

This week in Epic Fail: Amuletts admits that everything is a front 

Creator’s Commentary: I did a punny with the title!

Loki was a bit too much of a douchebag in my original script. Not that he can’t be but he can also be very charming. Whether on not he’s being honest, or either of these characters are I’ll leave entirely for you to speculate.

Oh go on I’ll tell you:

It’s all true. Especially the lies.

Actually truth is pretty relative especially when it comes to how a person views themselves. Look up ‘imposer syndrome’. 

Pg 94: Loki Entrance

This week in Epic Fail: Amuletts meets Loki.

Creator’s Commentary: Get it? Loki entrance?

So I find it amusing that Amuletts immediately loses confidence. Also that Loki is really sarcastic XD

He’s coalescing out of smoke in this scene. God of Fire and all 😉

Perhaps I should take this opportunity to discuss Loki’s hair. As I’m sure many of you will be aware Marvel’s Loki (portrayed by the lovely Tom Hiddleston) has black hair, but Loki is often portrayed as having red hair because this is the colour associated with fire. In Norse mythology his hair colour is not confirmed he is simply described as ‘handsome.’ To a Viking well kept blonde hair was considered handsome so quite possibly Loki was canonically a blonde. Of course being a shapeshfter he could probably have whatever hair colour he pleased.

I’ve gone with literal firey hair.
