    Personally I will be a bit sad to see this Marvel staple go but I am satisfied with the ending of the arc and give the final issue #655 of Journey Into Mystery my highest rating… Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Magen Cubed Aug 30, 2013

    Despite its too-short run, this title managed to come full circle with its development of Sif. Im truly saddened to see this book end, but Im completely satisfied with what we got. This book was a gem, and this issue is no exception. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Aug 28, 2013

    Even with the plot a little obfuscated at times, this issue, and this book, have been a joy to read and a thrill to experience. Immonen, thankfully, has a couple of projects lined up, but Id love to see her on another Marvel book, preferably one that got the kind of promotion that seems to be helping Captain Marvel soar (of course, the amazing creative team on that one is a big part of it too) as a new title. Its rare to see a creative team that so perfectly work off of one another with Schitis amazing faces perfectly conveying Immonens rapier wit and Bellaires colors making both the lines and the writing come to life. There are a lot of heady concepts in this book, but at its heart is, well, an awful lot of heart, and thats what makes it, ultimately, worth a look. When this is released in trade, I cant recommend it enough and, of course, if youve been reading, you HAVE to pick this one up. Its what Sif would want! Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Tony Couto Sep 3, 2013

    Journey Into Mystery #655 is an exceptional superhero comic that inspires with its strong characters and honest messages.After being worked under the talented hands of Immonen and Schiti, Journey Into Mystery will be sorely missed. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - David Henderson Aug 30, 2013

    Our journey has come to it's end and while it's a sad farewell, it was the most fitting this series could ask for. It was funny and it was heartfelt and it was action-packed. It was an issue that conveyed how much fun the creators had putting it together and that speaks to how much fun it is to read. So don't shed a tear for “Journey Into Mystery” because this is the most fun journey with a series I've had. Here's hoping these three cross paths again sometime soon on something else.

    While perhaps not the ideal ending for the run, this is a fine ending to the storyline. This distinction makes it all the more bittersweet that Sif's time in the spotlight is finished. She'll be missed. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Aug 29, 2013

    For a run cut too short, this is a solid wrap up for an interesting book. Looking back at "Journey Into Mystery," one can only hope that the series' talent is quickly snapped up for other interesting projects and that Sif, so wonderfully brought to life by Immonen and Schiti, finds herself a home elsewhere. Especially considering her beefed up role in the forthcoming "Thor 2: The Dark World" it seems like Sif's star should be on the rise, despite the cancellation of this very good book.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 31, 2013

    I've never heard of Schiti before, but this story has been career-making. Schiti could stand among the greats when it comes to expressions and facial work, especially for a character as complex as Beta Ray Bill. I want to see more! Read Full Review

    CHUD - Jeb Delia Aug 31, 2013

    While I continue to feel that Immonen's among the most overlooked writers working in superhero comics today, Schiti's art here is the sort of calling card that suggests that an Avengers or X-Men assignment can't be far off (if Marvel's not stupid enough to let the guy get away altogether).

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Sep 2, 2013

    There are some fun moments and the work by both Valerio Schiti and Jordie Bellaire is spectacular, yet the lack of focus and development on some of its aspects makes the book suffer a bit in its concluding chapter. It's superb visually, yet the book deserved better in the end. Read Full Review
