‘Valkyrie: Jane Foster’ #10 review: Is it the Asgard Apocalypse?

Valkyrie without her powers vs. Thor and everybody.

Valkyrie aka Jane Foster must overcome this week as Thor is possessed and she stands against the darkness. It’s an event that’s been shocking and great. Leave it to Jane to fight against insurmountable odds and prove once again she’s one of the greatest heroes in the Marvel universe. It’s all-out war as a possessed Thor attempts to take over Asgardia.

There are standout lines that will stick with you, especially given the political climate of today. There are captions that will stick with you, like an early one that reads, “There is a certain kind of man who mistakes the gun in his hand for power.” There is truth in these lines and they add weight to what Jane is up against.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

The finale is quite cool too, and it ties well to the impossible lengths Jane must go to save the gods around her. When she says, “I’m not a god, after all. I’m just the woman who sometimes saves them,” you will cheer. There’s also a nice reference or two to other characters in Jane’s life and a reminder she’s here to stay. She may be human, but gods who have lived for centuries know her power.

How badass is this cover?

The art looks a bit rushed and flat, especially in the last few pages. Something tells me the captions were laid on thick to keep the art moving as they at times take over and slow the pace down to a crawl. Like I said above, there are some impressive lines in this book, but they don’t flow well with static art and multiple captions laid over a single panel. There are touching moments with Jane and Volstagg and great moments with Jane’s pegasus. These moments will bring the warm and fuzzies.

I liked this issue, but it felt heavy-handed. I can’t help but think time, or lack of resources meant finishing the story too quickly. Still, it ends things well enough and reminds us how impactful Jane is on the world of Asgaard and how important she’ll be for all-time.

The visuals look rushed and the use of captions seem to try to distract from this
Reduces an epic event-level war to a few pages
