    Brilliant. The best first issue of the year thus far. This issue is naked proof that Kieron Gillen is a name you need to know. Read Full Review

    Anyone questioning whether Thor really needs another new series can kindly go put a sock in it. Journey Into Mystery is off to a great start. Matt Fraction has some serious competition in this section of the Marvel Universe, and I greatly look forward to what he and Gillen have in store together. Read Full Review

    The debut of the new "Journey into Mystery" is definitely the sort of comic that Thor fans will love. Gillen writes a fantastic Loki and sets the book on a smart course for the future. A title starring Loki may not be the first book that springs to mind as a logical spin-off from "Thor," but is proves in one issue that it should be. Read Full Review

    Personally, I'm not quite sure yet if I want to stay with the series, as I'm also picking up The Mighty Thor (which I will review when the first issue releases on the 27th of this month), but I won't deny that it was an enjoyable first issue. Good for Loki fans, good for Asgardian fans, okay for Thor fans, but not so great for fans looking to get into Thor for the upcoming movie. All in all I think this one deserves a solid 4/5.

    No problems here for me. This story moved along nicely, was pretty action packed, and I've slowly turned into a fan of Blastaar since his appearances in the old Nova comic. Plus it had Steve Rogers in it, and Lord Summers didn't really do anything, so I'll be looking forward to the final part of this story in the Namor annual, as crazy Namor tries to kill and(hopefully) drink everybody.

    So, go check this out if you want something a little different but still existing in a world with characters you recognize. Don't look for a lot of action right off the bat. Either way, I'm always looking forward to seeing with Kieron Gillen can give me next. Read Full Review
