    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Jun 11, 2014

    Only four issues, and this is one of my easiest to recommend series. It strikes a wonderful balance between whimsy and action, drama and wonder. The plot definitely takes off in this issue, and itll be interesting to see where it goes from here, especially as concerns the greater Marvel Universe. I love Danvers history with Infinity being brought to the fore as an important point of reference, and think this book leads the charge perfectly as an entry point on the Marvel Cosmic titles.

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Jun 13, 2014

    A good strong continuation of the ongoing storyline that finally comes back to the start of the first issue and we see how things are going to play out from here. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jun 12, 2014

    Considering the somewhat melancholy end to last issue, Captain Marvel's latest outing is actually quite a bit of fun. Kelly Sue DeConnick continues to hit the right balance of humor and heart, her Carol determined to prove that her aid in Torfa's plight is a boon, not a hindrance. Read Full Review

    While the previous "Captain Marvel" series had a lot going for it, it was a bit uneven and ultimately lacked the same cohesive vision of this revamped series. The new "Captain Marvel" is firing on all cylinders and is a wonderful argument for not throwing the baby out with the bath water. It's simply a damn fine comic book. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Cole Kennedy Jun 12, 2014

    Carol Danvers is a good lead character who takes charge and is a likable character that an entire series can easily follow for a long time. She is also established with a good sense of humor that accumulates to some comedic moments that take away from the severity of some situations. The dialogue is in short supply as it is clear that the art is the leading storyteller for this series, yet so much information is explained just through simple character dialogue as opposed to detailed narration. The series has been consistent in its look, pacing, and quality of storytelling. The positive elements have been trending through every issue and continue through this one, which are surely to continue in further issues. With a likable leading character, an original story with a galaxy-full of possibilities, and art that is simple, yet bright and engaging, Captain Marvel is one of Marvel's more entertaining and outgoing series.

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Jun 12, 2014

    Captain Marvel #4 is a strong chapter in what is rounding into a very solid arc. DeConnick and Lopez introduce some very entertaining characters into a book that is inherently optimistic and fun. There is a real spirit of adventure in this comic, with Carol exuding an Indiana Jones style, dive-in-head-first, attitude (meant in the best way possible). Carol Corps members will be happy as can be with this issue and if the quality of the title stays as high as what readers are getting in issue #4, the Corps is going to be growing larger each month.

    Nerds Unchained - Magen Cubed Jun 13, 2014

    In a sea of tedious cape books, Captain Marvel is an example superheroing done right. This book is funny, heartfelt, and always well-balanced by strong scripting and impressive artwork. Im so glad this book hasnt missed a step, even with the renumbering. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Jun 14, 2014

    The Bottom Line: Whereas most of the best entertainment nowadays is remixing if not entirely throwing out all the tropes we've come to expect, it's disappointing that Captain Marvel seems to be reverting to stock situations and characters, weirdly taking Captain Marvel in a new direction that just doesn't feel new at all. There's some action, which is good, and some great expressive artwork, which is beautiful, and even a hint of intrigue and cliffhanger, but it still ranks as Pleasantly Diverting rather than Truly Great.

    Word Of The Nerd - Sean Ian Mills Jun 14, 2014

    Captain Marvel was one of the company's best comics during its last volume, but I fear this new volume has not started off on the right foot. The strength of DeConnick's writing and characters is still very evident, and the book is enjoyable to read. But she's getting bogged down in a complicated web of aliens and refugees. Captain Marvel was at its best when Carol Danvers could be treated like a real person trying to live a real life. And while I enjoy a good space yarn as much as the next person, this storyline has robbed the comic of what it did best. Read Full Review
