The creators of the blockbuster podcast The Adventure Zone bring their talents to Marvel for a wild romp through THE WAR OF THE REALMS!
Earth is at war, besieged by an army of Frost Giants, Trolls and Fire Goblins - and the mighty Thor is nowhere to be found! But could it be that the key to turning the tide is...Thor's baby sister? Journey into Mystery with Spider-Man (Miles Morales), Hawkeye (Kate Bishop), Wonder Man, and Balder the Brave as they go on an epic quest to save Earth's only hope! (And, yes, deal with diaper duty.)

    War of the Realms: Journey Into Mystery #1 is about all you can ask of a big event spin-off " fun to read and easy to pick up on its own, even if you're not necessarily keeping up with the main series. Read Full Review

    The art by Andre Lima Araujo is great. There is a lot of detail in the panels and it matches the fun tone of this story. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Forrest Hollingsworth Apr 10, 2019

    Fun, free and unsurprisingly quick-witted, the McElroys' first Marvel outing is a great comic in its own right, embellishing hilariously and surprisingly on its great premise almost effortlessly. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Robbie Pleasant Apr 11, 2019

    Final Verdict: 7.1 – A fun team-up and adventure within the War of the Realms. The McElroys are off to a good start, with a strong art team bringing their story to life. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Apr 10, 2019

    The issue is an ok one. It tells one slice of the bigger story and time will tell how important that slice is. In the end, that may be the judge of the worth of the series. But, so far, this is a spin-off you might want to save your money. Read Full Review

    Neither McElroy fans nor Marvel die-hards will be disappointed with Journey Into Mystery. It's a fun comic that fits within the greater tapestry of the Marvel Universe and retains just enough of the McElroys' distinct voices to feel unique. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Jones Apr 10, 2019

    This is the first War of the Realms tie-in published and also a completely non-essential SKIP that can be disregarded. I hope future installments and tie-ins of the event will be more interesting. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Apr 14, 2019

    This issue is bad and the fact that it's the first tie-in issue to the War of the Realms Event boggles my mind. I am hoping the other tie-ins are better (and it won't take much!) because if they aren't, we have a long road ahead of us. If you are picking and choosing what tie-ins to buy, I suggest leaving this one on the shelf! Read Full Review
