    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Aug 21, 2019

    Valkyrie: Jane Foster #2 introduced us to a new kind of god, and he unarguably gives most enemies that Jane has faced so far a run for their money. They definitely proved that Bullseye had the power to bring a god to their knees, and didn't waste the opportunity to show it. In only two issues, this creative team successfully found a way to bring this new hero to a boiling point. There was no better time than now to question where Jane Foster ends and Valkyrie begins.

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Aug 21, 2019

    Valkyrie #2 builds magnificently on the previous issue's work by turning a cover-to-cover fight into a meaningful evolution of Jane Foster and her relationship with her new powers. Narratively and visually, this comic makes magic into reality. An inherently unbelievable story - a humble doctor using god-powers to defeat a homicidal maniac with a stolen magic sword - becomes the most believable thing in the world thanks to the creative team's consummate storytelling skill.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Aug 21, 2019

    The heaviness of the action in the issue launches the series into its third issue with a line that could have come across as very silly melodrama. The issue packed more than enough punch on more than enough levels to really give that final line of the issue all the justification it needs. Its only the name of the title Thor first appeared in. But Aaron, Ewing, and company give it a whole new life as Jane Foster is launched in a bold direction for her third issue.  Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Aug 21, 2019

    Jane Foster's tale has never shied away from the emotional and dramatic side of storytelling. Yet Valkyrie #2 is surprising in the amount of emotional depth and loss portrayed within the pages. It is not an issue fans will want to miss. Read Full Review

    Two issues in and Valkyrie has already managed to take quite a surprising turn that, by itself, warrants anyone remotely interested in the series to pay attention to what comes next. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - pauly p. Aug 21, 2019

    This issue moves FAST. There's enough things happening that it never becomes a boring slog fest, especially as we see Jane coming to grips with the duty of being the Valkyrie and how sometimes sacrifice is necessary for her new role. Some of the interior monologuing falls a bit flat, but the art is fantastic and my word Bullseye looks as creepy and psychotic as I've ever seen him. The ending takes you completely by surprise, and while this series so far isn't a home run, i'm still intrigued to see where we go from here. Read Full Review
