    Marvel Disassembled - Magen Cubed Feb 28, 2013

    Ending on a bit of a shocker, Immomen does not shy away from taking Sif in surprising directions during this arc. Each issue builds on the framework of the previous in ways I dont expect, making this a fun, refreshing read. Sifs journey is becoming more complex, and just how shes able to come back from this dangerous path shes found herself on keeps me coming back for more. An engaging romp with plenty of characterization to go with the action, this book is a genuine pleaser. Read Full Review

    This issue shows how fun this book truly is. With the great action, character moments and a plethora of Marvel characters, Kathryn Immonen is making an excellent book with the help of Valerio Schiti and Jordie Bellaire. Read Full Review

    Valerio Schiti's art is detailed, energetic, and sophisticated while Jordie Bellaire surprises absolutely no one with her masterful coloring. If you haven't been reading Journey Into Mystery, you're missing out on one of the more enjoyable titles in Marvel's lineup. Read Full Review

    Journey Into Mystery is fast becoming my sleeper favourite of this year. If this creative team keeps up the good work and Sif continues to be so cool well I may just have to stick around a bit longer on this title. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Mar 4, 2013

    I gave "Journey Into Mystery" a shot when it was branded with Marvel NOW!, looking for another offbeat title that wasn't going to require a multitude of tie-in titles to complete the larger picture and I certainly got more than I bargained for. While "Journey Into Mystery" #649 might not be the best place for readers to start, they could certainly do much worse. Immonen and crew have crafted a wonderful story with strong characters and gorgeous art and this issue is a wonderful love-letter to everything this classic Marvel title is all about: monsters, myths and adventure. I'm hoping this team stays intact beyond next issue's conclusion to this storyline, they've certainly earned it. Read Full Review

    Journey Into Mystery does suffer from a misstep this week, but it remains to be seen whether this is cause for concern, or whether this issue was merely paced awkwardly. The art is definitely the saving grace here as it remains incredibly detailed and distinct. Read Full Review
