When a longstanding Marvel character dies at the hands of Bullseye, Jane Foster must accept her new role and carry them to the world beyond. But she is not the Valkyrie of the past - nor is Bullseye's victim any ordinary hero. Valhalla is only one hall of the dead. The multiversal afterlife awaits.

    It's not filled with action in the same way past issues were where Valkyrie was busting heads left and right with her all-purpose weapon, but it's brimming with perils and revelations. Read Full Review

    This series has been everything I had hoped for, and so much more. I'm not afraid to confess my hopes that the series will continue for some time yet. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Sep 18, 2019

    Each artist beings their unique style to the pages of this issue and all those styles work. The entire middle of this issue is a series of brilliantly beautiful splash pages of different styles working together in visual harmony. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Sep 18, 2019

    Valkyrie taking Heimdall on his last ride to battle is an action-packed spectacle. It's solidly illustrated throughout and there's ample attention paid to the ongoing evolution of Jane Foster. A gorgeously-painted finale gives Heimdall's last call the gravitas it deserves. This is a comic about death, but it proves that that subject can be awe-inspiring and beautiful as well as terrifying.

    Comic Watch - Gabriel De Jesus Sep 24, 2019

    Aside from the reveal of Bullseyes boss and the revelation of Mr. Horse, this issues only means of pushing the plot forward is to reiterate that Jane is still new to figuring out what it means to be Valkyrie. However, with the stunning art and colors by CAFU, Perez, Tormey, Poggi, Irving, and Aburtov combining with the closing, at least for now, of Heimdalls story, it makes for a good standalone issue.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Sep 18, 2019

    Thankfully, CAFU is listed as the sole artist for the next couple of issues of the series. Which should see a return to the stylish visual form that had defined the first couple of chapters of the series. The story remains solidly entertaining as Foster embarks on an epic journey into an afterlife in transition. There's a very compelling premise at the heart of that journey which shows great potential for the months to come. Read Full Review

    Really enjoyable issue barely scratches the surface of what this new Valkyrie comic could be about, at least in my opinion. Read Full Review

    There are a lot of benefits to an issue like Jane Foster: Valkyrie #3, not least of which is that it gives the core creative team some wiggle room with a publishing schedule that has only gotten more demanding in recent years. Read Full Review

    Overall, Jane Foster: Valkyrie is still a magnificent series, but would've been stronger if the issue had a more consistent art team. Read Full Review
