Cover ArtMarvel Studios' Loki: the Art of the Series
Call Number: NC 1766 .U53 L65 2022
 
When Loki stole the Tesseract in Avengers- Endgame and escaped from New York, not only did it complicate plans for the Avengers, but also his own glorious purpose. Picking up immediately where the record-breaking movie left off, Loki finds himself called before the Time Variance Authority, a Kafkaesque bureaucratic organization that exists outside of time and space, forced to answer for his crimes against the sacred timeline and given a choice- face deletion from reality as we know it or assist them in catching an even greater threat. Go behind the scenes of the smash-hit Disney+ series with exclusive concept art and interviews with cast and crew.
