When Mjolnir comes crashing through Jane Foster's apartment window, she fears the worst has happened to Thor. As Asgard's greatest enemies - including Hela, Ulik the Troll and Enchantress - mount an assault on the Golden Realm, Jane must find Thor and save Asgard - even if that means she must once again risk her life to become Thor herself!

    Jane Foster & the Mighty Thor #1 is a surprise to be sure given as it's a strong first issue when typically Marvel produces so-so movie tie-in comics around this time. Not only does this story feel valid and earned, but it feels like a natural direction to further explore Jane Foster in a meaningful way. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 15, 2022

    What with all of the problems Marvels Asgard has run into over the decades, it is very, very difficult to cast any Thor-based danger in a new and novel light. Gronbekk is smart to focus the story-in on Jane and what shes going through for the most part. The very real human face of larger-than-life turmoil keeps the story from diving too far away from the emotional gravity that all of the action needs to center itself around. Read Full Review

    Worth a look if you are interested in this character. Again I am not sure how much it is going to play into the movie but it seems like it is going to be a fun story. Read Full Review

    All-around a solid issue. If you haven't read much Jane Foster, you should still be able to pick this up and follow along as long as you're aware of her general background. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Nico Sprezzatura Jun 8, 2022

    Downlings art follows a similar note from predecessors Cafu and Mattia de Iulis with a style based in visual realism, which helps make the more fantastical elements of the story feel grander and more epic. Jesus Aburtovs colors enhance the effect even further, delivering some truly beautiful shading that gives the lighting in various scenes an uncanny level of photographic verisimilitude. Jane Foster & The Mighty Thor #1 is altogether just a well-made comicbook that leaves the reader wanting more, which is all you can ask for from a new number one. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jun 16, 2022

    With Thor stories stuck in a bit of a pocket universe of their own, I'll admit to not recognizing half of the characters on hand here. Sif, at least I think it's Sif, gets far more time than Jane is this first issue as she sees the danger coming. Whoever is behind the threat, one thing is certain, Jane Foster needs to find Thor.

    If there's a redeeming quality to this book it's the spirit of Jane Foster shining through its lackluster script. Read Full Review
