Young Avengers by Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie (and a few friends) comes to an end today, and it also concludes Gillen’s Loki story, even more that Journey Into Mystery did. The new Loki story picks up in All New Marvel Now Point One today.

Young Avengers #15 is published today. Comics courtesy of Orbital Comics, London. Currently hosting a Game Of Thrones exhibition featuring the storyboard and illustration work of Will Simpson, who will be giving a public talk on his work on Friday evening.
