Cover & Solicit 4/5


I liked the cover for this issue even though I'm not sure who the guy is. I'm not even sure if he actually makes an appearance.

Art, Colors & Inking 4/5


While the art in this issue isn't bad I'm just not sure of Valerio Schiti's and Jordie Bellaire's work. The two seem to clash, while the art looks like it could be full of detail, it seems as though the colors are slightly muted and the detail or shading seems to be missing.

Layout & Flow 2/5


Again this issue had problems with what I felt was slow pacing. It seems to take awhile for things to get going. I also have trouble reading this title because of the wording and language they use. In some instances I had to read a word bubble twice to try and understand it.

Story 3/5


This issue continues Sif's journey to become a warrior for her people and the way the world is now nobody seems to want to fight anymore. After being imbued with a berzerker spell Sif seems to want nothing more than a fight. We first find her in the bar from last issue, insulting the patrons and picking a fight. When she returns to Asguard she fights Fandral and injures Volstagg's daughter. Volstagg sends Sif's brother Heimdall to talk some sense into her. To teach her a lesson Heindall sends Sif to an alternate dimension. The story started to pick up in the end and I'm sure to pick up the next issue. I just with it was a little easier to understand.

Verdict 3.3
