    Happily, Captain Marvel is going to be getting a movie in a few years! The character more than deserves the opportunity, and if it's in any way built upon the strength of DeConnick's series, I'm all the happier for that. Hopefully the comic gets better by then, because sadly, DeConnick still has Carol flying around space for no good reason. Get that girl back to planet Earth, pronto! Though to be fair, this week's adventure isn't half bad. Read Full Review

    Month after month, Captain Marvel proves to be one of the most consistent, enjoyable titles being published. This isn't an epic, universe changing title but a 20-page party – and that's exactly the way it should stay. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Nov 18, 2014

    Overall, I'd say that Captain Marvel has found a groove of its own" the tone, artwork, and ideas as presented here give the book a distinct flavor. It's a signature quality and distinctive feel" it's a "Captain Marvel book." Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Nov 13, 2014

    With so much emphasis on the words, artist David Lopez is tasked with keeping everything together, and he does so in his usual expressive fashion. Carol is a woman of many mohawked hats, and Lopez ably captures all of them, from the diplomat and warrior to the inner-screaming fangirl. Likewise, colorist Lee Loughridge gets the chance to strut his stuff, the book's more ridiculous moments allowing for a similarly heightened color palette. Issue #9's rhyming nature may not be for everyone, but there's no denying that DeConnick, Lopez and Loughridge make for one "marvelous" team. Read Full Review

    Overall, Captain Marvel #9 isnt a terrible issue, but it certainly isnt the best. It also isnt my favorite kind of story. While I wouldnt recommend this issue to readers outside of the Carol Corp., it is a lighthearted and silly adventure that some Carol fans are sure to enjoy. Read Full Review
