    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Dec 11, 2019

    Having worked her way through her initial arc, Jan Foster is diving headlong into something WAY beyond her capabilities. The creative team does a remarkable job of keeping her both vulnerably mortal and powerfully magical. Lee and Kirby never quite managed this clean a balance when Thors alter-ego was Dr. Donald Blake back in the 1960s. Ewing and Arron have done a very talented job of rooting the magical rooted in the mundane world of Marvel Manhattan. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 12, 2019

    Perez offers some brilliant and detailed art in this issue. Everything from the characters to the backgrounds and action complement the story. I love the way Strange is rendered. There is a light, breezy quality to him that comes out in contrast with Jane when the two are in the same panel. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Dec 12, 2019

    Valkyrie #6 begins a new plot for Jane Foster, "Strange Aeons". And that's an accurate name if ever I've heard one. This is a dramatic issue, from start to finish, and it's going to leave readers eager to get their hands on the next issue. The cameos and guest artists were all nice surprises, and that helped to bring this issue to new heights. One character's appearance, in particular, will likely make fans want to catch up with his series (or feel smug for already having done so). Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Dec 12, 2019

    Credit where it is due that there is nothing about Valkyrie: Jane Foster so far that you could have predicted they would have done within these eight issues. This is a new experience all around. New situations, new problems, new team-ups, and even new destinations. I assumed that this would be a fairly tame story, and I'm glad that this assumption was proven wrong in the best of ways.

    We've seen the high-end versions of the afterlife and space in between, and seeing the grim depictions of a much darker version of death looks to be a promising setting for however the heroes' visits there last. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Matt Fischer Dec 18, 2019

    Janes characterization is still spot on. She chose to inherit these powers, but that doesnt mean she doesnt want a normal life as well. Shes been banished to the morgue, there is a horse living in her apartment, and life is only getting crazier. Im very happy to see that this book has made it past six issues and my hope is that it can make it past 12. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Dec 11, 2019

    The latest issue of Valkyrie expands its spotlight to accommodate some team-up pals around Jane Foster and give them a formidable challenge: diagnosing a sickness in Death herself. With smooth guest art, strong dialogue, and an intriguing plot all in evidence, this series is rolling right along from strength to strength. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michael Govan Dec 13, 2019

    As the first issue of this arc, it's mainly concerned with setting the stakes and putting the pieces into place. If this were a heist movie, we're in the part where they're assembling the crew. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - pauly p. Dec 11, 2019

    What a concept- rounding up superhero doctors to make a house call to heal death? Death has always had a literal presence in the Marvel Universe, so I dont really understand (maybe because I am a big dummy, though) why Death didnt just come to our realm and ask for help? Apparently, death being sick can affect the entire universe? I get that there should be some stakes but were TOLD this, rather than shown, and to me, it just doesnt seem as big as they want to make it" part of the reason the last arc finished so strong is because the stakes were very personal, and this arc starts with the wearying trope of insisting that the next arc WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING FOREVER! The art is great, especially the creepy skeletons in Deaths realm, and the last page looks COOL AS! Hopefully, this arc will finish stronger than it started. Read Full Review
