    Mighty Valkyries #3 is often a feast for the eyes. However, the writers have perhaps bitten off more than they can chew. While the issue sets the stage for the latter half of the miniseries, its sadly lackluster on its own. Hopefully, the next issue is a return to form. Read Full Review

    The two artists don't really mesh well at all, but the story is engaging and the scale of it all helps to keep readers engaged. Read Full Review

    While these individual threads are pretty compelling on their own, I feel like I'm still waiting to see how this series is going to eventually link all of these stories together and create a more overarching narrative. Read Full Review

    As this story progresses, I feel more and more attached to the story of the new gods. Growing increasingly intrigued by what will happen when the two Valkyrie stories converge. Great issue, fantastic art as usual.

    If there's anything that brings the Valkyries together other than Loki, it's their nurturing nature. Runa is quickly becoming very enjoyable, especially when her wits can complement Jane's willingness to defend even the monstrous beings of the Nine Realms.

    Karnilla stitches her orphan story onto Jane's with a little help from Loki. Rūna's story looks to be headed that way as well. Yet the overall ties between these scenes remain awfully loose. I'm still finding value in the mythical flavor and in much (not all) of the artwork, but I can completely understand dropping the series at this point. The "Rūna saves the oracle" thread looks a hell of a lot like a shaggy dog, and I am perhaps a fool for hoping that it will make more sense as part of a bigger picture.

    I wish Marvel still did OGNs. This arc might be a good story, might even be great. But it's definitely not a good serialized story; it suffers from being broken into issues. It'd read better released all at once -- perhaps, i more

    The subplots are finally starting to make sense with one another just as another one in Hel is introduced. This series just needs more focus.

    This wasn't my favorite issue. It feels like the parts with Runa are just not as interesting as the parts with Jane. It's starting to come together, but it's still kind of boring. This issue is overall just a middling chapter where important things are explained, sure, but I just don't find myself enjoying it. It's like the necessary reading you have to do to get to the cool shit.

    The jane parts were pretty solid. I didnt mind the other valkyrie parts but, thats not really the parts I buy this series for. The artist for the Jane scenes is just doing some mind boggling work.

    The stories are just a mess at this point. It feels as if there is too much story and not enough direction which points to two writers not working well together. Two artists on here was a dumb idea. D'Urso has a completely different look than Mattia de Lilus. It does no service to either artists. It feels like watching an adult series then switching channels to a kid's show and then back. Mattia de Lulis's digital art is just amazing and the only reason I come back.

    The Valkyries could be a really interesting topic, but sadly Marvel's progress is not enough
