    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Feb 23, 2013

    I dare you to find something more adorable than the scene of Captain Marvel hanging out with her little fangirl, Kit. Though I suppose you'd come close with the jokes about Captain Marvel's cat, Chewie. The art and the dialogue come together so wonderfully in this series. Plus it's just a blast to see Captain Marvel in full costume just strolling down the sidewalk with her little fangirl, shooting the breeze and just being an awesome person. I love comics where we get to see the superhero's daily life, where they act and talk like normal, ordinary people, and Captain Marvel absolutely nails that idea. Please don't cancel this comic!

    Geek Smash - Andrea Shockling Feb 20, 2013

    Man, character-driven solo comics are my new jam, and “Captain Marvel” is a nice companion to “Hawkeye” in that regard. Must be something in the water in the DeConnick-Fraction household, because they're both kicking ass and taking names. If you're a #hawkguy fan and you aren't reading “Captain Marvel” yet, pick up #9 and #10 and let me know what you think. This is superhero storytelling at its best. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Feb 21, 2013

    While "Captain Marvel" has taken a while to find its footing, it has really begun to sing in these last few issues, in large part thanks to DeConnick and Sebela finding a wonderful balance between the oh-so-human Carol and her superheroic persona. "Captain Marvel" has a vision and voice that only the best of superhero books can manage and I can't wait for what's next. Read Full Review

    Blue Raven Comics - James Hannon Feb 22, 2013

    This book has been special from the beginning, and the artwork is one of the main reasons for this. In every single issue of this series, the art has been absolutely superb. I often get worried when a new artist is drawing one of the comics that I love, but the choices that Marvel have made for this book have been exemplary. Marvel has been consistently raising the game in terms of the uniqueness and quality of the art that their books are providing us. From Hawkeye to Daredevil to Captain Marvel, the pencils and colours have all been excellent. It is Filipe Andrade who provided the art for this issue and he does brilliantly. His style is like no other, and his storytelling is masterful. In the letters section of the comic someone wrote in saying that they did not like his style, but I think they are missing the point. Captain Marvel is not your average hero so she does not deserve an average artist. Read Full Review

    Captain Marvel #10 is equal parts humour and heartbreak, but fantastic throughout. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Feb 20, 2013

    Kelly Sue DeConnick is joined by Christopher Sebela on scripting duties this time around but the story doesn't suffer one bit. The dialogue is snappy and fun, as usual. Carol Danvers' little corner of the Marvel Universe is a fun one, filled with crazy characters and hilarious interactions. This is just a great issue from start to finish. I love this world, I love these characters. Hell, I'd read a book starring Wendy and Chewie the cat in a heartbeat. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Feb 25, 2013

    Captain Marvel #10 is yet another gem for this series that has been just that since it launched. Kelly DeConnick and Christopher Sebela are able to treat the new development in Carol's life with care. They use the brain lesion as a way to add another layer to her character that helps set her apart from other superheroes. From the touching scene with the young Captain Marvel fan and Captain America's dramatic conversation, there was a lot explored when it comes to the situation Carol finds herself in. If you are not reading Captain Marvel I highly implore you to change that. Read Full Review

    One Quest - Chris Cobb Feb 22, 2013

    Captain Marvel, along with a few other solo books, is one of the best books Marvel is putting out right now and it just goes to prove we don't need huge earth shattering events in every book to make a good super hero comic. Read Full Review

    If you like Hawkguy, this is a series that deserves at least a chance to be part of your regular pull list. Its a fun, interesting Marvel title that, all in all, is written and drawn really well. Kelly Sue DeConnick really shines at the helm of Ms. Danvers, and its definitely a title that needs to stick around. There are far worse things you can spend $2.99 on each month. Give this series a chance. Forget all the bad Ms. Marvel stuff that might be turning you off this series. Trust me when I say you need to give this a try. You wont be disappointed. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Magen Cubed Feb 20, 2013

    As with last month's, there's so much to like about this issue. From the great dialogue and character dynamics to the gorgeous pencils, DeConnick, Sebela and Andrade each pull their weight in delivering a solid, highly enjoyable issue. With the action and adventure grounded by Carol's struggle with her illness, this arc is shaping up to an engaging and personal journey. The light, buoyant quality of Andrade's art, supplemented by Jordie Bellaire's beautiful color work, keeps the story moving with grace and energy, and almost steals whole the show. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima Feb 20, 2013

    This issue follows in the same vein as the previous issue of CAPTAIN MARVEL. It really explores the character on a more personal level which is something I found really interesting. In it we see Carol's personality shine a little bit and get a glimpse at her hard-headedness and stubbornness. We also see that there are people in Carol's life that are important to her and are looking out for her, and both these things were great. Having said that, this issue doesn't feel like it rides the high that the last issue ended with. Things could have been a bit more dramatic and we could have seen Carol literally suffer after attempting to fly. The issue ends on a pretty dramatic note which is good, but a big chunk of what happens in the middle could have been a bit better. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - ToriBee Feb 20, 2013

    I loved this issue as far as overall premise goes albeit its lack in originality is there but overlookable, and I’m absolutely in love with the art. And while Deathbird isn’t my favourite nemesis to come about—there are no strong feelings towards her that resonates but there’s this flow of energy throughout that keeps it feeling fresh enough to still enjoy it.

    I enjoyed this issue, but this series as a whole has been spotty. I like that Marvel is employing unique artists, but uniqueness isn't always commercial. I think this book really needs to find a better balance and these more indie artists should be given assignments on edgier series. But, just judging by my own tastes, the writing and art were great! I understand it won't all appeal to every reader, but if you're open to quirkier fare, definitely give this book a shot. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Feb 25, 2013

    This issue will need quite a bit of the benefit of your doubt to maintain its credibility, as it's hard to take the protagonist or the art seriously when both seem so immature. Read Full Review
