    There is no avoiding the sense that you're missing something on some level with the heavy emphasis on Doom and Hala Field's place in the universe. Ultimately, that is less to do with the writing here and more to do with the scope of Secret Wars or any universe-wide event. If you do feel like you're missing something, don't worry: everyone else probably is too — but keep going! DeConnick and Thompson's writing is fun and engaging, and with an element of suspense that leaves you itching for issue two. You won't regret subscribing. Read Full Review

    Captain Marvel And The Carol Corps #1 is a rock solid comic that will win over a lot of people with a great story and fantastic artwork. There's a lot of fun in this issue and the seeds for a fun adventure to drive the series forward. This is a must read for fans of Carol Danvers, and for anyone who has been enjoying the storytelling freedom Secret Wars has provided. You won't be disappointed by Carol or her Corps.

    Comic Spectrum - Bob Bretall Jun 20, 2015

    Captain Marvel and the Carol Corps has the single most interesting story thread (for my money) of the Secret Wars tie-ins I've read. How high is the sky? Read the issue and you'll know what I mean by that, but I won't elaborate here in the interest of not spoiling the story. I' really looking forward to seeing how this wonderfully crafted series plays out. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jose' Rodriguez Jun 11, 2015

    As a fan of Captain Marvel, you should read the book. Not only do you continue to receive the same engaging Carol we know and love but you also get a cast that's just as cool as Carol, minus the powers. The package is nicely tied together by David Lopez and Lee Loughridge, whom continue to set the visual tone for Captain Marvel books albeit with a very appropriate muted palette this time around. It's also a nice treat to see that this book will contribute a nice chunk to the overall “Secret Wars” mythos. Read Full Review

    The fun and energy of DeConnick's initial run carries over into the Carol Corp, each wisecracking member at once appealing and familiar. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Harry Roachford Jun 11, 2015

    Captain Marvel and the Carol Corps is not the best comic of Secret Wars, but it's pretty darn close. Carol is always very much a fascinating character, but Carol leading a team of dynamic female charactersfeels like a dream that has come true despite all odds. Although this won't be one of the comics carrying over into the new MU, it's a brilliant Secret Wars story that leaves the reader eager for the following issues of this mini. It's a great read with very little holding it down, and thankfully it doesn't get overly caught up in the larger story line of the main Secret Wars. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Jun 13, 2015

    CM&theCC has an unfortunately unwieldily name but is full of interesting characters presented by absolutely amazing art. The setting is also unfortunate, as it can't maintain your suspension of disbelief for a pretty critical plot point. At least it prompts the heroes to act smart and to rail against the System, and that's a pretty good reason to tune in. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Jun 11, 2015

    While this issue has its merits, it also falls victim to what is the problem with Captain Marvel and with Secret Wars. On the one hand it doesn't really try to accomplish anything that hasn't been seen before, and on the other it seems to be too set in the Secret Wars scenario, as it depends on it for its story. It is not completely devoid of its entertaining moments, only with the talented writing team and free rein to get inventive, it seems like they took the easy route. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Jun 11, 2015

    This is one of the few Secret Wars tie-in's that seem to be channelling Doom's rule. Sure, over in A Force, the ladies are unhappy with a certain situation, but here there is the start of rebellion. I can't say I particularly enjoyed the issue for a couple of reasons: The first being that I am not that connected to the whole Battle world environment so I don't really care what happens and secondly, I straight up miss the regular Captain Marvel book. That feeling is only heightened with the fact the last regular issue of her series was a Black Vortex tie-in which again, as I only read Captain Marvel and Spider-Woman, didn't mean that much to me. I for one, can wait to seeing regular programming resume. Read Full Review

    Captain Marvel and the Carol Corps is a title that may take you by surprise. The writing team of Kelly Sue DeConnick and Kelly Thompson do a nice job of setting the tone for the rest of the series. We also get a glimpse of characters who start to doubt Lord Doom. The art by David Lopez is fine and a compliment to the tone of the story. There were a few rough spots but overall he did well with the issue. Read Full Review
