    Not only is Kieron Gillen earning the title I gave him as my favorite writer of 2011, but he's definitely going for two in a row while this series and this specific arc is putting itself on a level that might leave all other books and stories I read this year in its dust. Read Full Review

    Call me a cynic, but for a book that already operates on such an intellectual plain, I don't know how many more ingredients can go into this stew before it simply becomes too much. But Gillen is a writer I trust, and the nice part about working on a book that operates on the fringe of the Marvel Universe is that you can play with lots of characters, get esoteric, and hide lots of little jokes in your work.

    Still, the story holds up and it's not as if readers haven't been prepared for this approach. "Journey into Mystery" is intellectual without being stilted, and not afraid to be funny where it could be melodramatic. A consistent monthly read and as ever, one worth investigating.

    Still, there is this spectre hovering over this reviewer as he waits for the conclusion in April- there is the chance that it may peter out and end on a whimper. Here's to hoping that nothing of that sort happens and the momentum carries clean through: this arc has been loads of fun so far. A Thorri appearance next issue would put all my nonsensical worries to rest, no doubt! Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 14, 2012

    In most other senses, the book remains firmly consistent. Gillen's command of language is as impressive as ever. The epic scope is always tempered by humor and sarcastic character interactions. Rich Elson could do a better job of capturing the surreal quality of Nightmare's dreamscapes, but otherwise Elson's work is as solid as ever. Despite the many high profile releases this week, Journey Into Mystery remains one of the better reads. Read Full Review
