    Overall Captain Marvel 6 is a great issue; it retains such a sense of fun and charm that it's so hard not to like this book. I am disappointed it seems Carol will still be flying solo but she is such a strong character she can carry this book by herself. Any fan of superhero or cosmic comics will enjoy this, its about fun and never loses sight of this. Read Full Review

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Aug 23, 2014

    David Lopez and Lee Loughridge continue their excellent run on the series with this issue, and pretty much the entire issue featured some really outstanding work. The problems of the first couple issues are now in the past and the art team has put its best foot forward now. The expressions-work, the character-work, the interplay of colour palettes, the sheer scale and awesomeness of the action scenes, it was all superb. Read Full Review

    A satisfying conclusion to this arc, Captain Marvel #6 struts off the stands to deliver a kick-ass story, art, and the cohesion of a hero we can all aspire to be. Read Full Review

    Kelly Sue DeConnick again proves that she can write a spectacular, well-paced feel-good comic, with this issue in particular further developing a group of genuinely likable, easy-to-empathize-with characters. Read Full Review

    It may not be the most original resolution, but I cant deny its STILL a ton of fun. I like the fact that Danvers didnt just swoop in and save the day and, but she was still integral to the story and the peoples efforts to save themselves. This book does an incredible job of maintaining an all-ages feel while still having some pretty hard-hitting themes and commentary. But at the end of the day, its about having a good time and thats exactly what it delivers. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Randy Z. Ochoa Aug 15, 2014

    Lee Loughridges colors are to be applauded. Every setting and scene seems to have its own shade. All of the ground scenes are a nice yellow, all the JSon scenes are red, and even the one panel of Jackie in her ship is a nice pink. It looks like the only parts of the book in full color are the space set scene, and a single panel of a landscape. It shows importance with respect to the rest of the book. You see these and know big things are happening. Read Full Review

    The long awaited conclusion to the interstellar mission Carol set out on in issue one wraps up here with a massive battle, some light humor and emotional heartstring pulls. Read Full Review

    The good news is that Captain Marvel is still just getting started on her restless space adventure and now that she’s thwarted the Spartax emperor, we can expect some dust ups down the road. Hopefully some of her new friends will be along for the ride, as they are as good a ragtag interspecies team as there ever was. DeConnick, Lopez and Loughridge work well together to show how people work together, so I think we’ll see more space camaraderie. I hope we see Carol change as a person - her decision to go into space was somewhat escapist, but I have a feeling DeConnick will keep putting her in the middle of situations that feel a lot like real life.

    IGN - Jeff Lake Aug 14, 2014

    Kelly Sue DeConnick brings Captain Marvel's first arc to a close, the Avenger squaring off against Emperor J'son and his Spartax army. DeConnick has done a great job throughout the series establishing Torfa and it's citizens, making their final stand engaging and cheer-worthy. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Aug 15, 2014

    Though not the strongest issue of the arc, "Captain Marvel" #6 is still good solid comics and this is a simply magic creative team that one hopes will be delivering Carol's adventures for a long time to come. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Cole Kennedy Aug 18, 2014

    Captain Marvel #6 excelled at the art, as has the entire series, but some rushed scenes and lack of execution from previous build-ups prevented this issue from being memorable. This issue is not the best Captain Marvel, but certainly not the worst, and a good read for any Carol Danvers fan. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 16, 2014

    As much as I love DeConnick's Captain Marvel, she still can't bring me to care about this alien storyline. It's been a disappointing direction since issue #1, and not even a big fight conclusion is enough to make me care. Sorry, Kelly Sue, I love your comic, but this storyline has been a drag.
