    The issues very first panel is an extreme closeup on Carols eye, and the rest of the book keeps up that highly stylized intensity: series of small, tight closeups on faces alternate with big, swooping overhead shots at weird, jarring angles, emphasizing the disorienting interplay between Carols interior battles and outer struggles, the constant whiplash between past and future that defines the Captain Marvel legacy.All told, this is a tight, compelling 20 pages that elegantly juggles big explosions, witty dialogue, psychological thrills, and sci-fi fantasy.

    Its premise is familiar (Captain Marvel teams up with a wisecracking super team and has wacky space adventures) but that doesn't make Carol's latest any less refreshing. Not only are writers Michelle Fazekas and Tara Butters mining a different side of Carol " one physically weakened and emotionally compromised " but they also continue to make the most of the book's supporting cast.

    The new Captain Marvel is entertaining, and I like it, but I hope Fazekas and Smith find time to slow down before too long. This new series needs a good 'day in the life' issue. Read Full Review

    I continue to love the Star Trek feel that this comic has.

    This book is about some of the women in the Marvel universe who kick butt and hold nothing back, and it is created by a team of awesome women of the Marvel roster who kick butt and hold nothing back. So it is no shock that I love this book, I love the art, and I really hope more people are jumping onto this book, because it stands to be enjoyed by more people. Plus Alpha Flight is in it- ALPHA FLIGHT. So you get the modern Captain Marvel, PLUS lots of great nostalgia for old-school Marvel stuff all in one. That, added to the fact that this book has quite a bit of suspense, mystery and misdirection, it is actually really fun to read, and kept me engaged throughout. I like when a book takes it’s time to unwrap a mystery fully, and I’m worried that this book is building up to pull the covers off a bit too soon, but we don’t get too much spoiled for us in this issue, so I am holding out hope. The artwork on this book is awesome. Alpha Flight look really cool and modern, and the space station stuff is really, really cool. There is a lot of great work on the colors of this book- the bright colors really pop, the subdued hologram and flashback colors are really nice, and the depth and pervasiveness of the blacks when they are used to full effect is really spooky and oppressive. I have said before- I had heard good things about Kelly Sue Deconnick’s Captain Marvel, but never really got around to reading it, which I am sure is safe to say, I am the worse for it, but this book is really solid and stands on it’s own very well, and is absolutely worth the read.

    I really don't like Anka, even if the story's quite good.
