    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Oct 23, 2019

    Valkyrie #4 was a dramatic issue, quickly and effortlessly establishing a new threat and plot for Jane Foster. And it wasn't afraid to put other characters in the line of fire in order to increase the emotional investment of its readers. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Oct 23, 2019

    The series continues. Foster is being pushed in quite a few different directions this issue alone. Shes just learning the ropes. The challenge is going to be letting her gain some proficiency and wisdom on the job. Without maintaining the earthbound charm that the series has been gliding through so fluidly so far. The fourth issue is a fun mix of different elements. If they can maintain that mix going forward, this particular Valkyrie could have a nice, long life. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Gabriel De Jesus Oct 31, 2019

    Ewing, Aaron, CAFU, and Aburtov craft another engaging beautiful installment with Jane Foster: Valkyrie #4. Every piece seems to fit just right with a sense of intent, making the delay and means of acknowledging a characters orientation even more prominent. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Oct 23, 2019

    This comic is a high-wire act of comedic absurdity, blending the ridiculous and the melodramatic into a sublime, hilarious whole. Where lesser creators might faceplant in the course of this delicate balancing act, the Valkyrie team triumphs and delivers an exceptionally "comic-book-y" comic. It's a good-vs-evil struggle with the highest possible stakes, yet it's also a shaggy dog story with a flying, talking horse. It all works thanks to the talent, effort, experience, and close collaboration of the creative team. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - pauly p. Oct 23, 2019

    This book up until now couldn't decide whether it wanted to be a serious Thor-esque book with all the pomp and pageantry or a funny book that doesn't take itself too seriously. This issue goes full out funny - and picks up because of it. Read Full Review
