    Immomen delivers a solid and intriguing story, following Sifs growing pains in her quest to become an unstoppable warrior. This issue builds on the last and explores the themes from the beginning of this arc, as Sif tries to find her place in her home as it stands now, locked in an endless cycle of destruction and renewal. Sifs journey is poignant and believable, carried by Schitis engaging and inventive pencils and Jordie Bellaires lovely, understated color work. The story strikes a nice balance here, compared to the previous issue, finding sure footing early on and keeping a strong pace. Read Full Review

    Journey Into Mystery will be a title that most will pass up on. I can understand not having an interest in mythology, but I really enjoy it and the fantasy element as it's too few and far between in mainstream comics. Two issues in and I am definitely on board with Immonen, Schiti and Sif. I will follow them wherever they choose to take me. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Dec 21, 2012

    I've read a lot of comic books and had my opinions challenged or changed on a number of characters, but not once has any creative team pled their case as eloquently as Immonen and Schiti do in "Journey Into Mystery" #647. Quite simply, this issue, with casual yet measured inclusion of so much of the Asgardian legend and lore, is one of the best Marvel NOW! has to offer. With Thor nowhere to be seen, Sif is not only given the lead role, but has the opportunity to truly become a character worthy of her own title. "Journey Into Mystery" #647 may only be the second issue of Sif's lead and Immonen's story, but there is simply no denying how very enjoyable it is. Do yourself a favor on that last minute shopping run, stop by the comic shop and pick this book up if you haven't already. After all, you need to treat yourself once in awhile as well.

    So, this issue gives Sif the push that was lacking last time. It is a title that looks gorgeous due to the work of Schiti and Bellaire. The art utilises Immonen's script well and all the elements come together to deliver a compelling read. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - George Marston Dec 20, 2012

    Kathryn Immonen had a hard act to follow on Journey Into Mystery, and while her Sif story isn't as playful as L'il Loki's tale, there's still an abundance of depth and density in Marvel's Asgardian ensemble title. Read Full Review
