Kathryn Immonen and Valerio Schiti are taking over Journey Into Mystery with issue 646. It’s very much a new era of the book. Rather than Loki, the story focuses on Lady Sif.
Kathryn has written some of my favourite mini-series of the last few years, and I’m thrilled to see her on an ongoing book. I’m less familiar with Valerio Schiti’s work, but the little I’ve seen looks exciting. And Sif is one of the characters I wished I had more chance to explore in my time in the Thor universe, and so think this greater attention is long overdue.
You’ll find further details in the press coverage.

Here’s Newsarama’s piece.
EDIT: And ignore the $3.99 price on the cover. It’s apparently still $2.99 and that’s a typo.
OOOOOH DANG, I kind of really want to get my hands on this. SIIIIIIIIIF
Guys, I’ve never ever read any Marvel or DC comics because there’s so MANY and they baffle me to be honest - is this something I can just jump into? Is there background info I need? Help????
I haven’t read any Journey Into Mystery, but just looking at reviews for other stuff Kathryn Immonen has written, she gets a lot of good reviews! And I love Sif from the movie. Because they’re “revamping” the title, I’m guessing they will provide background info in the first issue to help out new readers. Glad you posted this - I would very much like to read this when it comes out!
