Loki has assembled his team for his secret mission in the shadow of FEAR ITSELF. Now, he just needs his equipment. Is there anyone Loki won't won't turn to get the power he needs? SPOILERS: No, probably not. The question has to be whether the young boy has the guile to survive turning to them, and whether the promises he makes to secure the chance of a tomorrow will only ensure that the tomorrow will see Asgard as black as a cinder.

    A lot of the negatives I list are really entirely due to Journey into Mystery's sky-high standard. Taken on it's own, this issue is absolutely fantastic and not at all a bump in the road or a misstep. Read Full Review

    There's a fine line between mockery and smart writing. There's a fine line between Stan Lee's Asgard and Elizabethan theater " well, maybe not that fine a line. There's a fine line between a good comic now and a comic that will always be good. "Journey Into Mystery" is crafting a large tale in digestible chunks and if you like it now you'll no doubt love it again later in different ways for different reasons. Get a taste of how Asgard should be; buy this book. Read Full Review
