SPINNING OUT OF THE PAGES OF THOR! The Asgardian warrior Sif was no stranger to battle; the heft of steel, the pitch of combat, the spray of an enemy's blood...she even craved it. But when Asgard and its people made their glorious return through the power of Thor, Sif's body was stolen and possessed by crafty Loki. Cowed by such defilement, Sif hasn't been her true self...until a former lover and mate in arms comes to her with a call to battle and blood-spattering adventure...Now Sif sets out with Beta Ray Bill to fight her way back to true warrior's glory!

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Apr 22, 2010

    Writer Kelly Sue DeConnick and artist Ryan Stegman show incredibly chemistry as a creative team on this oneshot as they make a strong case for a Sif ongoing with this very fun, actionpacked story. They really made the most of this oneshot by telling a very entertaining tale of a badass warrior in action, but also making the character incredibly compelling.

    Comic Book Resources - Timothy Callahan Apr 21, 2010

    This is a confident issue from DeConnick and Stegman. It does more than bring Sif back into play in the Marvel Universe. It makes us care about her, and cheer her return. Read Full Review

    What she's going to need is a foe, but I'm guessing it won't be a generic hive mind or Loki himself quite yet, either. Read Full Review

    There are some moments that just chill you when you read them, and the book quickly turns to space/survival/horror mode and gets the heart rate up. Read Full Review
