    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jan 15, 2020

    Already I can see Valkyrie: Jane Foster being one of the top books to hit shelves for Marvel. This is the kind of book you can appreciate when it takes a character you see one way, and reinvent the way you see that character. Valkyrie: Jane Foster #7 not only continued to accomplish that, but took that step further to explore a corner of the Marvel Universe that not many creatives are bold enough to journey into.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jan 15, 2020

    This step into further mysteries of the Marvel Universe makes the cosmic-level stuff feel all the more vital. Which is quite an accomplishment given the fact that the entire universe has had relatively regular threats to its existence pop-up one or more times per year since it first debuted in 1961. The sense of the infinite that Ewing and Aaron have instilled in the latest Jane Foster keeps a tired, old shared universe feeling fantastic over half a century since its conception. Ewing and Aaron are doing really important work with this series. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jan 15, 2020

    Perez imbues the art with both beautiful details and stunning action. Even though the story is character focused, Perez is allowed to create a beautifully strange and stunning world for these characters to occupy. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Jan 15, 2020

    Valkyrie #7 was a brilliant issue, telling a story to do both Jane Foster and Valkyrie justice. This is the sort of plot fans have been hoping for, and it did not disappoint. While I have zero complaints about this series continuing, I could have been happy, had this been the conclusion. And I feel like that's saying something. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 23, 2020

    A truly thoughtful story that examines the concept of Death through the lens of a world where death is cheap, with excellent art and a fun cast of returning Doctors. I recommend it. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 15, 2020

    This is Al Ewing's last issue on the series before Torunn Grnbekk takes over as co-writer with Aaron and I can't see a better issue to go out on. It captures the heart of Jane Foster well, offers lots of creative ideas, and makes for a fun adventure.  Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 18, 2020

    This two-part story was short, but it is oh so sweet! I wish more comics were as creative as Valkyrie. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Gabriel De Jesus Jan 19, 2020

    Jane Foster: Valkyrie #7 (Ewing, Aaron, Perez, Aburtov) is another enjoyable issue, but leaves me wanting more in a less than good way. However, the potential ramifications for Jane and the Marvel world as a whole make it a story worth reading. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Jan 15, 2020

    I come back to where I started here: If you're underwhelmed by this series, this issue's weak points -- chiefly Team Doctor's shenanigans -- will reinforce your distaste. But the good news is, Valkyrie #7 offers an ample reward for those who have fallen in love. The character work lavished on Jane here is more than enough to make it a must-read for fans.

    Newsarama - Kat Calamia Jan 17, 2020

    Jane continues to bring a human perspective to some very complicated concepts, and this central theme is why Valkyrie: Jane Foster is one of the best superhero comic books on stands. Read Full Review
