    I have gushed about this series since it came into play during Fear Itself, and I will continue to do so until it ends, and likely for years afterwards. It's not too late to jump onto one of Marvel's best ongoing series, and you owe it to yourself to check this book out. Kid Loki's journey may be close to ending, but his legacy will live on in this title, whether he likes it or not. Read Full Review

    All said, this story ends with a great issue featuring fantastic art from Richard Elson, some great wit (that includes Loki and Leah wearing symbolic Guy Fawkes masks while they destroy the places of power for Otherworld), and a touching end. We now head into a crossover with The Mighty Thor that will likely feature a different tone as Surtur looks to be coming to burn everything! Read Full Review

    A brilliant issue with nothing but huge, emotionally evocative moments…even if you'll hate Gillen for it. Read Full Review

    Because few things hurt quite like a story can. Like a vaccine for despair. Like training wheels for heartbreak. It may be upsetting, but you come out of it better equipped to deal with reality. In a medium where character deaths are deployed as readily as punctuation, it's a privilege indeed to read a story that understands how to execute a death story so it matters to the audience.

    Journey Into Mystery #641 doesn't buck trends and upholds the series' reputation for quality, featuring solid work from its creative team. Overall, the Manchester Gods arc has been a shot in the arm, and I only regret that it wasn't a tad longer. Well, three issues are better than none, so I guess I will shut up now. Read Full Review

    It's a shame this book won't be around much longer. Still, Gillen has maintained a high standard of quality throughout his run, and this final crossover with Thor shows no signs of breaking the trend. Read Full Review
