    The brief introduction at the start of the comic will make this issue easy for any new reader to understand and follow along. The comic opens with Jessica Drew, but quickly fast forwards to Carol Danvers who has traveled back in time before she became Captain Marvel. This is definitely an issue that focuses on Carol's appreciation for her powers and the life she lives now. The person that she has become. It's something that has been an underlying theme in this series so far, but it is something that definitely comes to the surface of the story. It's a great issue with fantastic dialogue and a great introduction to Carol's character if you have not yet read the series. Beautiful art and an awesome story makes this a perfect issue.

    The other element is the brilliant art by Emma Rios. I positively love how she mixed the art styles. In the scenes that depicted the events of Carol's Ms. Marvel origin, it's drawn in the older style of the 70s. In the shots that point back to present day Carol and the younger Helen, she uses the style that she put on display in the previous issue. It's such a great mix to place you into the different perspectives of the timelines and characters involved. It's truly a stunning book that shines in both art and story. Read Full Review

    Emma Rios is no less awesome; she too showcases her artistry in this issue. The last issue had very little action sequences and she handled it well. This had tons and she handled this wonderfully. This is becoming the best comic book series in the shops at this moment!! Read Full Review

    Adding to the brilliance of this issue is Emma Rios. Holy crap, she is incredible here. Beautiful, in every sense of the word. Unlike the previous issue, there is lots of action here, and Rios just kills it. There is a fluid, graceful quality to every page, to every panel. Whether it's two characters talking in a hospital or two super powered females duking it out in the sky, it all looks stunning. This is one freaking fantastic looking comic book. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Nov 5, 2012

    There are a lot of assumptions going on here and the satisfaction Captain Marvel feels at the end is mostly unearned, but otherwise a well-written and well-rendered issue. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Kyle Mc Nov 11, 2012

    Emma Rios art style suits the flight scenes perfectly as she draws the characters thin allowing it all to flow together perfectly. I still maintain that I miss Soys take on the characters is still my favourite the choice to have Rios fill in the final issues of the arc is a strange choice to make, especially if it was just because they wanted to be able to ship two issues in the same month and because of Soys style that wouldnt be possible it makes it seem like two separate stories.

    So while the writing is strong and the character fun, I did not think this was the best start Captain Marvel should have had. Though I definitely plan to keep reading. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Nov 2, 2012

    "Captain Marvel" #6 feels like an all right conclusion to the first big storyline for the title. Both in terms of story structure and look, though, it feels a bit divorced from what happened earlier, and that's a shame. I want this book to be a huge hit, and while I think there's still the potential to get there, future stories will need a slightly more cohesive conclusion. This book should be great, not just good.
