    I like to reserve the perfect score for works that reach me on an emotional level, and this issue really kind of does, in a special, jolly sort of way. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Jan 14, 2015

    The fact is: that IS what villains do, so its not all that unusual that very little is explained, and its not really the point of the book. This is a book that has a great sense of spirit without descending into preachiness or soapboxing, and it reinvigorates what was a title in danger of beginning to sag. Theres clearly plenty of verve left, though, and between Deconnick and Lopez, the books never looked or felt better. Read Full Review

    Considering how much this book keeps improving all the time, I cannot wait to see what Ms. DeConnick has in store for us next. Captain Marvel is so important to all of us, and it's easy to see why. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Daniel Gehen Jan 20, 2015

    What more can be said about David Lopez's art? He manages to bring life and energy to each of the title's cast. The pure joy of Lila's discovery that she was in Times-Freaking-Square brings smiles to the faces of readers. The pain that Carol feels when looking at Tracy, unconscious in her hospital bed, is shared with the audience. When the title calls for big action, Lopez delivers it. The effort he gives each month, combined with DeConnick's masterful handling of this cast, has madeCaptain Marvel one of the most consistently excellent superhero titles on stands today, and the eleventh issue is no exception.

    Geeked Out Nation - Kate Coenen Jan 17, 2015

    Captain Marvel #11 is a fun story full of holiday spirit that explores one of Carol's most meaningful friendships. Also, in the knockout fight between Captain Marvel and Grace Valentine, we learn a very important lesson: do not mess with Captain Marvel, especially when she's visiting a friend in the hospital, because you will not win"and you'll definitely end up on Santa's naughty list. Captain Marvel lights up the night sky like the Christmas star, and this issue is definitely a bright spot on the comic shelves. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Jan 17, 2015

    All in all, though, the comic wears its heart on its sleeve, with a completely personal and poignant story that reminds me of the best of the done-in-one kinds of stories I grew up with. We don't need a giant space epic to show that Captain Marvel's a true hero. We just need some crazy villains and some heartfelt moments and beautifully expressive art. And a last page splash with a dramatic explosion, of course. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jan 15, 2015

    Carol Danvers returns for the second installment of her Christmas themed two-shot, writer Kelly Sue DeConnick ably building off of the many inspirational vibes that came before. While the necessity of said issue is easily debated, the resulting finale is nonetheless a fun and joyful romp that brims with holiday spirit. Read Full Review
