    Readers cueing in for Infinity will have no difficulty stepping into Captain Marvel's story, because she herself is largely unaware of it and DeConnick cleverly uses that to build the setting and give a uniquely uncomfortable tone to the issue that gives its end a particularly strong jolt. Thrown right into the ongoing action, #15 is more than just a tipped hat to the event, and still has another issue in its two part tie-in to go, something even new readers are going to want to grab.

    Kelly Sue has the character nailed, she just needs an art team that can claim the same. Read Full Review

    The Pop Cultist - Josh Elliott Aug 28, 2013

    As the one constant on this series, DeConnick has made it consistently strong, and she continues to do so under tie-in pressure. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Magen Cubed Aug 30, 2013

    A solid read, with some interesting insights into both Carols state of mind and some of the behind-the-scenes of this summers big event. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Mario Miranda Aug 29, 2013

    I would have a hard time recommending this issue to both regular readers of the series and infinity readers who may be looking to complete the story. This fails to properly continue the arc before it and does not contribute much to the infinity storyline. The few plot points that are addressed heere, will most likely be addressed in the main infinity book and hopefully in the Captain Marvel title following the events of Infinity. Read Full Review

    IGN - Melissa Grey Aug 28, 2013

    Visually, there's a lot happening on the page. Penciller Patrick Olliffe and inker Drew Geraci handle the expansive action sequences with a deft hand, while colorist Andy Troy packs a punch with heavily saturated colors. The art team puts in a solid effort, but we're still left craving a consistent aesthetic from a title that suffers from a revolving door of artistic talent. Read Full Review

    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray Aug 29, 2013

    Perhaps it is simply that up until now, Captain Marvel has been a very personal journey about one of Marvel's most interesting characters, and this issue demonstrates that there is a danger of her being lost in the noise. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Connor Relyea Aug 31, 2013

    With this book being a tie-in to theInfinityevent going on it could dampen some of the possibilities that DeConnick had to explore the character. Hopefully we'll be able to see the new Carol Danvers once the book returns fromInfinity. Read Full Review

    "Captain Marvel" #15's greatest misfortune was having its release synced with the "Infinity" event. With Olliffe's stagnant art and a rigid plot formula to follow, DeConnick and Van Meter do their best nonetheless with the slack they got, using every opportunity to expand on Carol's personal story. "Captain Marvel" has nowhere to go but up from this point forward, especially with the exciting Binary tease left at the end of the issue. Read Full Review

  • 5.0 - Jason Motes Aug 31, 2013

    So, while the writing is solid, the fact that it had to be tailored around another event really disappointed me and the fact that a major development in the life of the lead character was glossed over via recap page really burns me. The art wasn't bad, but just wasn't to my liking. So in all, it was kind of a disappointing issue. Read Full Review
