    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Mar 18, 2020

    Again this was Valkyrie like you have never experienced the character before. Jane Foster consistency proves that there is something about this job that you should never underestimate, particularly when you are properly equipped for the task. Valkyrie: Jane Foster #9 was a mind-blowing experience for how she fought back against this infectious power, and how the end of one danger only made room for another much worse. This is not the book from Marvel to Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Mar 18, 2020

    Ramon Rosanas delivers some fantastic art, especially in the character moments. There are some great panels that perfectly capture the emotion of the moments from Jane's determination to Loki's curiosity. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Mar 18, 2020

    Valkyrie #9 was an enthralling issue, one that leaves us concerned for what is to come. In that sense, it is perfect for Jane Foster's story. After all, her series has consistently pushed the boundaries of creative storytelling. It'll be fascinating to see how far this particular plot goes, especially considering the other characters affected by what is occurring. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Mar 18, 2020

    Overall, this is a (very) slight dip from the magic that was last month's issue, but this series is coming into its own nicely. If you're in any way invested in the Thor universe, you owe it to yourself to check it out. Read Full Review

    Jane Foster's at a pivotal point in her Valkyrie career in this ninth issue, and it doesn't fail to impress and make the most of what it's been building up to. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Gabriel De Jesus Apr 4, 2020

    Valkyrie: Jane Foster #9 (Aaron, Grnbekk, Rosanas, & Aburtov) moves the plot forward and paves the way for some interesting potential, but seems to lack some of the magic of past issues. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 18, 2020

    Given the amount of plot being pushed through this issue, its quite remarkable that everyone involved has managed to make it feel smooth and graceful. It scarcely feels rushed or convoluted at all, which is quite impressive given everything thats taking place. Once again, Jane Foster proves herself to be a very interesting mutation of the "Dr. Donald Blake/Thor" character that Jack Kirby and Larry Lieber had forged back in the 1960s.  Read Full Review
