    All things considered, I'm willing to rank this series as Marvel's best ongoing book. An issue like this may not do much to advance the overarching plot, but it's so lovingly crafted and purely enjoyable that it doesn't need to. Read Full Review

    This little issue was a hoot, whether you followed Fear Itself or not. It is self-contained and has enough information to work in new readers. Recommended. Read Full Review

    This issue may have been silly, but Volstagg is a character that proves to have a lot of heart. He fought in a war, and those who fight in wars tend to never come out of it without some guilt over what they had to do to try to win. Volstagg's got a heavy heart (not to mention heavy arms, heavy legs, a heavy gut, well you get the point), but when asked why he had to lie to the children about what really happened, he simply responds saying he wanted to keep the children innocent for a little while longer, and if he could keep them innocent forever, he'd be happy. It's a touching end to a fairly ludicrous story. But don't let that fool you, this is still a great example of how good Gillen is at writing this series. Read Full Review

    Overall, "Journey into Mystery" #630 is an amusing, entertaining comic that begins the follow-up to "Fear Itself." Volstagg's role in the event is surprising, and his reaction lends itself to a fun comic. The only problem is that the writing and art don't go far enough to make Volstagg's story a fantastic tall tale, walking some middle ground that leaves you wanting more. Read Full Review
