It's a busy episode! We're reading Volume 2 of Ed Brubaker's Winter Soldier run on Captain America where we see those dastardly Russians fill Bucky's brain with lies!

There's also a House of M tie-in issue in the middle which we went ahead and red as well.

Then we end things with the debut of Electro in Amazing Spider-Man #9. Thankfully, J. Jonah Jameson also returns to the series after taking a month off.

Next Time: Black Widow: Web of Intrigue (Marvel Fanfare #10-13, Bizarre Adventures #25)

Loki is everybody's favorite trickster god and in 2004 he finally got his own 4 issue mini-series by Robert Rodi with painted art by Esad Ribic.

It starts with a victorious Loki, which means he doesn't have to use any of his fun trademark trickery throughout the book. Hooray!

After reading that, we move onto Amazing Spider-Man #8 in which we see the least likable version of Peter Parker there has ever been.

Next Time: Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Vol. 2 (Captain American 2004 #8-14)
