Geek Anthropology of Loki’s Army is a MUST read for anyone looking to learn more about our favorite tiny Frost Giant, Loki! Seriously, just about ANYTHING you would ever need to know about Loki, his universe, or the universe that’s obsessed with him (hey that’s us!) you’ll find in here. (…) Geek Anthropology of Loki’s Army really helped flesh out Loki’s story for me, and filled in a lot of the gaps since I’m not super involved in the Loki fandom. Now I really want to re-watch all the movies Loki’s in, and see if I view him differently! Natalie Patalie
I watched the first Thor movie, but I never gave much thought to Loki (gasp!) and I definitely never considered his fandom. In fact, I didn’t even know he had such a huge following until I happened across Pepi’s blog, and then I was intrigued! Okay so that’s the guy from the Thor movie…why are people so obsessed with him?! I wanted to read this book because I was dying to understand what all the fuss was about, and I was not disappointed. Pepi goes above and beyond explaining the how and why of Loki’s popularity. Not only does she talk about Loki and his persona as a character, she also explains the connection between the character Loki and the actor Tom Hiddleston and why Tom himself is so important to the Loki fandom. My favorite part of the book, however, was the section on Loki’s Army since my main reason for reading was to discover what lies behind the minds of Loki fans. You guys are intense! Haha, but really, now that I know A LOT about Loki and I actually understand why he’s so adored, I just want to give him a hug. And I definitely want to watch more Marvel movies….er, at least those with Loki=P Her Geekery
