    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 22, 2012

    What's not to love about this comic? We have two awesome superheroines kicking ass, cracking wise and fighting a giant robot. Carol makes for a strong protagonist, and Monica Rambeau is perfect as the spunky sidekick. I said it in my last review, but I think Captain Marvel is the perfect place to explore the social lives of superheroes. These characters don't just fight evil together. They're each others' best friends. They hang out and get coffee together. They talk about life and relationships together. That's what I want to see, and that's what I think Captain Marvel can deliver. They did a fine job of it with this issue, that's for sure. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Magen Cubed Dec 20, 2012

    This is a fun, action-packed issue, full of great writing and art. Carols and Monicas banter is a treat, and Soys pencils are as beautiful and energetic as always, making for an engaging and enjoyable read. It doesnt get much better than this. Read Full Review

    The Pop Cultist - Josh Elliott Dec 19, 2012

    It's unclear whether this is the second half of a two-story adventure at sea or if it's leading into something bigger. Does it really have to go any bigger than this, though? Captain Marvel smashes an airplane robot, and it's a thrill to read. Read Full Review

    Dexter Soy's art was amazing, as usual. He saved his best for last. Sadly, his art stint with Captain Marvel is over. But on the bright side, he has a gift for drawing giant robot. The robot was AWESOME! I hope his next job is doing more robots!! Read Full Review

    It's not the most gripping story, but it's fun and entertaining and I really enjoyed the art! And even if the story is a bit rote, I appreciate the way the story was told and how different plot threads came together at the end. This book had a rocky start. It was the book I so desperately wanted to like more than I actually did… and it looks like it might just live up to that potential and soon! Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Dec 19, 2012

    This is, without a doubt, the best looking issue that Dexter Soy has delivered. This dude needs to draw a Transformer book, stat. The giant robot looks absolutely stunning. Plus, the his layouts are second to none. The pages flow, at times without panel borders. Instead, the characters and the action divide panels and movement. This is Soy's last issue of Captain Marvel, so hopefully Marvel has plans to stick him on a book that features lots of giant robots. The guy seriously has a gift. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Dec 26, 2012

    Kelly Sue DeConnick and Dexter Soy continue to make a great combination on Captain Marvel. This latest issue is yet further proof as to why this series is one of the best new comics of the year. As we have Captain Marvel and her supporting cast firmly established it will be important for this series to create a Rogues Gallery for Captain Marvel to battle. If you haven't given Captain Marvel a try I recommend you change that as this is an extremely fun superhero comic. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Dec 25, 2012

    A filler arc if I've ever seen one, and one without much fun, given the lameness of the enemy, the lackluster interaction of the characters, and one very annoying love interest. Read Full Review
