    While technological innovations might not be the impetus of either story in the book, its tone honors a specific vibe of books like Strange Tales and Adventures into Weird Worlds, breathing life into a classic comic book genre. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Tevin Murphy Jan 30, 2019

    Overall, I love that this issue kept to the idea of the Unknown Worlds part of the books name and it delivered two stories centred on alien lifeforms from other worlds. Marvel is doing something really special by bringing this book back and allowing us to revel in that old school comic nostalgia with stories that felt plucked from the heyday of science fiction and aliens.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jan 30, 2019

    Marvel's Atlas Comics anthology revivals continue to show promise with Journey Into Unknown Worlds. As with the straight-ahead horror revival Crypt of Shadows from earlier this month, more than one story fits the same theme without feeling repetitious. Read Full Review

    If you've ever enjoyed classic Marvel Comics horror, the weird, or singular stories in the comic format you will love this. This is great horror. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Feb 16, 2019

    Journey Into Unknown Worlds is a great throwback to the kinds of scary stories that Marvel did back in the day. It shows that the publisher still has some horror chops. I'd love to see this become a more regular tradition, even if it was just a yearly anthology. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Kelly Gaines Feb 4, 2019

    The crazy Sci-fi vibe is definitely worth the journey, but mind the gap between the first and second story. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Jan 30, 2019

    I think my truly favorite part of the issue was the backmatter as it gave a quick, succinct history of Marvel’s foray into Science-Fiction and how this history molded what Marvel would become. Fun addition! Read Full Review

    The Beat - AJ Frost Jan 30, 2019

    Just not enough there to justify this book unless you're super into this kind of sci-fi/horror-ish stuff. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Jan 31, 2019

    Despite the excellent talent and wicked legacy of these stories, the lack of depth and lasting hooks ultimately makes it all feel a bit inconsequential. Read Full Review
