With the movie Thor out, it has definitely brought around interest into the Thor & Loki Story. Have no fear, because Marvel has bought about one of Thors most popular stories in comic history to DVD through cutting edge animation. Thor & Loki: Blood Brothers debuts for the first time on DVD shelves nationwide on September 13, 2011 from Shout! Factory, in association with Marvel Knights Animation.
You get an awesome look inside the minds of Thor and Loki, two adversarial brothers in the mystical land of Asgard and seemingly forever enemies. But just why does Loki hate his brother Thor? And could it be that this master of mischief isn’t really the villain he’s been branded? Loki’s insatiable lust for power and his feud with Thor take on new meaning in this resonant epic (aff). (For me, it's a great prequel to the movie Thor. I didn't have all this background information before and it helps you to understand the brothers relationship better).
A quick synopsis:
The great halls of Asgard have fallen silent since a new king has overtaken the throne. His name is Loki, son of almighty Odin, brother to the Thunder God, Thor. Once a powerful trickster — the God of Mischief — Loki now rules a grand kingdom with little regard for its subjects. His only thoughts are focused inward, toward the origins of his own pain and suffering. To quell his torment and to gain the respect he feels he so rightfully deserves, Loki must now execute the prisoner chained deep within the dungeons of Asgard, the one man who has ever shown him love. His own brother.
