    Gillen writing a book centered on Loki should be enough to sell you on this. Add some of Braithwaite's best work for the art and a compelling story that can either stand on its own or work as a companion to the current Fear Itself event and you have an excellent comic you should be reading.

    Journey Into Mystery has it within itself to be one of Marvel's very best books. All it needs is some adjustment to the colors and a few more issues in the can to reach that point. Read Full Review

    This issue might only be another step in Loki's tale through "Fear Itself," but it is a good set of plot tokens he collects here. The writing and the art deliver on all counts to make an epic book of poetic quality. The foundation is being built for a defining tale for Loki. You have every reason to stay tuned.
