    Journey Into Mystery is making a strong case for itself not just as Marvel's best Thor book, but its best ongoing series in general. This is unquestionably the highlight of Gillen's tenure at Marvel so far. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Alex Evans Jun 13, 2011

    All told, Journey into Mystery is a fantastic book that you really should be reading, particularly if you're at all partial to fantasy, Thor, or, well, good storytelling in general. It's laughs, adventure, and above all else, very strong character-work with stunning artwork to back it all up. Read Full Review

    "Journey Into Mystery" is a twisting book of backstabbing and situation massaging. This is Asgard as politics with magic. It holds its focus on the smartest character and so sets out to be the smartest book around. Loki isn't out to punch the world into shape, he's going to slowly knead it with his words and desires. That makes this a clever mystical drama, but one which still delivers action of hellhounds duelling and the ghoulish appearance of the dead and the dying. You can enjoy this book without the event, and you really should. Read Full Review

    Right there. Thats where I, Comics Bulletin reviewer Jamil Scalese, would stop reading this review and conclude that this story was not for me. Damn, Im stupid. Kieron Gillens Journey Into Mystery is a delightful, intense journey that compliments Fear Itself in a way that makes it feel like its part of a Director's Cut. Read Full Review
