•  The fates of NICO MINORU, a mysterious missing girl named Alice, and a small town in Colorado are all tied together as CIVIL WAR II heats up and threatens to tear A-FORCE apart.
•  The team, with ELSA BLOODSTONE in foul-mouthed tow, splits up to hunt down the apparent source of the trouble in the hopes of saving the town.
•  However, it soon becomes apparent that all is not what it seems with the team-A-Force is changing-and by morning there may not be anyone left to save the day.

    As with so many of the Civil War II crossovers, it's hard to know which ones to really go for. However, A-Force #9 is more than worthwhile and hopefully it'll bring in some new regular readers too, because this series deserves it. It stands head and shoulders above the competition in every way and has earned its place there. Read Full Review

    Even though there's only a loose connection to Civil War II, Captain Marvel's inclusion is enough to make it feel cohesive. We genuinely can't wait to see how Nico will react to Alice's capture of Captain Marvel, and whether she'll fulfill Ulysses' vision. If so, there's no chance Captain Marvel will ever change her views on his powers. Read Full Review

    A-Force #9 fails to raise the series out of the hole that itfinds itself in now that we are dealing with Civil War II. The series isattempting to use the tone of old 1950's sci-fi horror films and someincredible art to win the reader over, but unfortunately the story is what tieseverything together and if it fails, everything else does too.

    I love the cover but it totally gives away this issue's cliffhanger, it should have been used for #10. Elsa Bloodstone seriously drags the issue down, her grammatically awkward swearing is so XXXXXXX annoying and the fact that every character feels the need to point it out is even more annoying. Have you people never heard a swear word before? Are you a team of seven-year-olds? "Hey. So there's XXXX definitely something in there," reads like it was written by someone with English as a second language or was home schooled and only watched PG movies well into her forties. Needless to say, it really took me out of the story, which was not that great to begin with. It picks up a bit after the obligatory "Okay, let's set our differences aside for the greater good" moment, but it is completely unbelievable that Captain Marvel would take Nico with her to locate the girl whom she's forecast to kill, I'm not buying it. Great layouts though.
