• Captain Marvel's time as an astronomical avenger has pitted her against some of the worst the galaxy has to offer (lookin' at you J'Son).
•  The Haffensye Consortium has been tracking Captain Marvel and Tic for weeks. Now, they've finally caught up to them both!
•  Captain Marvel was barely able to survive the last time she squared-off against the Haffensye - think she'll be so lucky again?

    While the choice to return to the stars this soon might not be the best one, this issue at the very least is great, simple fun. The previous problem of the book becoming directionless and drifting through space has, at least for the time being, been solved with a concrete storyline and direction for Captain Marvel to go in, and with an issue this strong, its hard to be TOO upset. This issue, and this book overall, manages the tricky balancing act of being extremely fun while keeping a great sense of dramatic tension and emotional investment. Read Full Review

    So while this issue might not have set me on fire, it does lead us back into the main story and I am looking forward to seeing what happens next. Read Full Review

    Kelly Sue certainly doesn't pussyfoot around with the scientific jargon or space lingo. Star Wars nerds (like me) will especially like this issue as this is very much in that vein. Although a big chunk of this Captain Marvel run has taken place inthe final frontier (yes thats a Star Trekreference), I would very much consider this the spaciest issue to date. Weve got dark matter, weve got hyperspeed, weve got everything from main sequence stars to sublight engines. I hope you fastened your seatbelts kids, because we are punching it into overdrive here in the OMG! department. David Lopez continues to kick the whole thing up a notch with his linework, giving Carol the personality we all imagine her to have. Her facial expressions are brilliantly balanced between elegant and quirky. Thank you guys for another home run, I cant wait to see where this arc takes us! Read Full Review

    David Lopez does a nice job creating vested interest in Carol's somewhat solo tale, his character work and expression again on point. There are a few confusing sequences in terms of choreography, but overall he does a solid job in getting Captain Marvel's latest adventures off the ground. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Magen Cubed Feb 12, 2015

    While the two-page spreads are certainly impressive, simpler sequences, such as Carols arrival at the Envelop, are what stick out. The five-panel sequence follows the motion of Carols body and translates it to that of the ship seamlessly, creating a continuous sense of momentum for both comedic and dramatic affect. Small design choices like these really make the book. Of course, colorist Loughridge does his fair share of heavy lifting in this issue as well. His treatment of the hyperspeed travel sequences are especially lovely, developing these empty spaces through smart applications of color, texture, and lighting effects. You may have come for Captain Marvel herself, but this issue is full of visual goodies through and through. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Feb 14, 2015

    After a few spectacular issues of Captain Marvel on Earth, DeConnick and guest writer Warren Ellis fling her back into outer space with all the nonsense that comes with. Captain Marvel #12 is a painful reminder why Carol's space adventures are just so dull. Read Full Review
