    Captain Marvel the woman is in a vulnerable place. She's physically broken in this issue, and theconsequencescould be catastrophic. Old enemies and old allies make appearances, and new friends lend a hand. I think she'll be okay in the end. “Captain Marvel” the comic book is in a similar place. Old readers may be faithful, but new readers like you could seriously make a difference. Ask yourself why you aren't reading this book, because I just told you why I am. And like Carol, I'm willing to fight for it. Read Full Review

    The Pop Cultist - Josh Elliott Mar 20, 2013

    With a triumphant final scene for Carol Danvers and a Mr. Pinstripe reveal teased for next issue, Captain Marvel #11 proves that while its hero is grounded, there's no stopping this title from flying high every month. Read Full Review

    Felipe Andrade continues to amaze with the art in this issue. He has such a distinctive style that adds to the personality of this comic book. His character moments are great, his action is great. This is one of the best books out there a the moment, everyone should give it a shot. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Mar 20, 2013

    Once again, the stupendous artwork of Filipe Andrade gives a kind of kinetic energy to the book. The scenes that feature Carol in hospital look nice and have just the right amount of emotion. But, the scenes were Carol is punching dudes in the face and jump from roof to roof in New York City? Frickin' amazing. Jordie Bellaire, who I believe currently colors 83% of the comic books on the market, does some gorgeous work in this issue, too. Captain Marvel's costume just pops and glows. Everything about this comic book looks great. Read Full Review

    Don't let this series pass you by. There are a lot of great comics out there, especially from Marvel right now, but this is one that really should be on your monthly pull list. The entire creative team is doing a hell of a job with this comic and it deserves your support. Go out there and check it out. Hell, start at issue #9. That's only three comics to get you into this series. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Mar 23, 2013

    Once again, DeConnick and Sebela deliver a delightful comic about Carol's struggles with both her personal and professional lives. This is exactly what I want from superhero comics. I love it when writers treat their characters as people first and superheroes second. It's a much more personal, grounded approach to storytelling, and I think it's far more effective than just stories about heroes endlessly punching villains. I love Carol interacting with her landlord, doting on young Kit and hanging out with friends like Dakota North. I'm rather enjoying all the guest stars that show up in this series just to hang out with Carol, the way real friends hang out with each other. I like when my comics have a real sense of camaraderie between the characters. Read Full Review

    This was a solid issue and a dramatic storyline. I guess if I have to pick one word to describe this series as a whole, it's “personal.” Carol has really been fleshed out as a real 3-dimensional person with a large supporting cast that is equally well developed. Carol is the star here, not “Captain Marvel.” It's a really satisfying read! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Mar 25, 2013

    Still, those are minor nitpicks against the book's otherwise enjoyable story. The promise of the new Deathbird and her downright cold-blooded intimidation techniques are more than enough to bring me back next issue. If this is an average instalment, I want to be around when it really hits the high notes. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Shawn Hill Mar 25, 2013

    Almost as interesting as the book is the letters page, which has quickly become one of those classic ones were fans and creators are sharing with great openness and sincerity. All you have to see is the young woman from North Carolina who made her own costume, and poses in front of the pilot school she attends, to know that DeConnick is really onto something, and whichever artist partner she gets is going to have to face equally high expectations.

    Crave Online - Andy Hunsaker Mar 26, 2013

    Maybe it's just a matter of growing accustomed to different art styles, but I found Captain Marvel #11 to be a pretty enjoyable issue. The characters are engaging, the interplay is fun, and whereas I never really had much stock in Ms. Marvel, I find myself actually caring about Captain Marvel. As in, I'm worried about her getting evicted. When I start to get emotionally attached to characters, you've done your job. Read Full Review

    While the dialogue and liveliness of this series remains its strongest selling point, there's nothing particularly extraordinary about its plot nor especially with its art. Read Full Review

    CHUD - Jeb Delia Mar 22, 2013

    Captain Marvel isn't the kind of storytelling departure that we're getting from, say, Hawkeye, or FF: it's a good, well-characterized superhero adventure comic, with a female protagonist, that needs to make no allowances for gender. But it's decidedly NOT a book to judge by its cover. Read Full Review
