    Sif has a great thing going here and she just needs more support. She gets character support from Beta Ray Bill, but support of "Journey Into Mystery" #653 needs to come from the readers. In this day and age when a comic book can be had through three mouse clicks or less, there is no reason to let this $2.99 gem evade your enjoyment. Read Full Review

    Journey Into Mystery #653 reminds me how much I'll miss the series, and it's unique way of humanizing the Asgardian gods. Immonen puts the characters in situations far from what you'd expect of them, and in doing so, creates novel humour and engaging story. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jun 29, 2013

    I haven't been reading Journey Into Mystery because I've simply never been a big fan of the Thor mythos, my love of Jason Aaron's Thor: God of Thunder aside. I also don't have any particular interest in Sif as a protagonist, though I completely support the idea of giving Sif her own book. By all means, she's as deserving as anyone. But sadly, not a lot of people bought the comic, and Sif's adventures have already been cancelled. This Beta Ray Bill cameo has come far too late. He should have been a guest star since the beginning. Read Full Review

    No review of one of her books can go by without a shout out to the great Jordie Bellaire. Once again, her color work is phenomenal and has gone a long way toward establishing the unique voice that the art of this book has. There isn't any other comic that looks that much likeJourney Into Mystery. Read Full Review

    Artist Valerio Schiti continues to delight with his melding of space opera and sword & sorcery, and in his hands (with typically fine colors from Jordie Bellaire), Sif is one of the most visually distinctive and expressive female characters on the stands today. Read Full Review
