    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Sep 10, 2014

    Captain Marvel is on her way home, but Im glad she gets to have an adventure or two before arriving there. After the last arcs more somber, sober tone and subject matter, it feels good to get back to a more madcap tale full of hijinks than something that involves the greater antagonists of the Marvel Universe. We get some great insight into Captain Danvers inner-workings, specifically her anxieties, and that makes for some great, if fleeting, drama and the new artist is doing a fantastic job establishing himself on the title. This issue defines a great jumping-on point but theres also plenty for longtime fans to sink their teeth into. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Jessica Boyd Sep 13, 2014

    This fluid art along with the humor, anger and action create a solid issue.Thisstoryseems to get back to the joy and fun of comics after a heavily messaged filled arc and last issue.Captain Marvel and Rocket Raccoon have almost been reduced to a squabbling old couple… and it is hilarious. This is the jumping on point this series has needed. Fans of space adventure, strange creatures, humorous reveals will get their fill here and find a new friend in Carol Danvers. Read Full Review

    Pick this one up, no question, and prepare for what I can almost guarantee will be a killer issue next month in the follow-up to this story. Read Full Review

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Sep 11, 2014

    This is a great issue for this new series, but it is a little too static for my tastes. The best thing here is definitely how well Rocket is a foil for Carol and Kelly Sue writes both characters really well. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Dan Gehen Sep 11, 2014

    Captain Marvel continues to lead the charge for Marvel, pushing the publisher towards both greater gender equality and high-quality, fun fare. Issue #7 is business as usual for the series, which is to say that it's an easy recommendation. Read Full Review

    "Captain Marvel" #7 is, above all, fun. This arc might not be going higher and faster, but it's definitely looking kookier and happier, and I'm excited. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Magen Cubed Sep 12, 2014

    Carol defends her beloved pet against Rockets advice to hand the cat over to the alien, only to discover that Chewie is indeed a Flerken, and a very proud one, having laid a huge clutch of eggs. Just when the alien pierces the ship, the eggs begin to hatch, and Carol has more trouble on her hands than she knows what to do with. Fun from start to finish, Captain Marvel #7 is yet another successful issue in this arc, promising even more adventure in the next leg of the story. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Sep 13, 2014

    So pretty much every word out of Rocket's mouth was like nails on a chalkboard for me in this issue. I also can't stand the way that the Guardians have been elevated to A-List status in the comics and everybody acts like that's always been the case, Carol especially. It's grating. But fortunately, there was still a lot to love in this issue. Carol and Tic have a nice rapport, and seeing Carol have a friendly, human conversation with someone is a welcome return to this comic's better days. DeConnick writes Carol at her best when she's just being a normal person. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Sep 11, 2014

    Though technically still in its first arc, the latest from Kelly Sue DeConnick reads more like a transition piece to the next chapter than a true conclusion to the first. It's a solid move, but when considering the numerous high stakes adventures we've seen recently, issue #7 comes off as quieter and more bizarre by comparison. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 16, 2014

    I'm a little bit surprised to say that I'm enjoying Carol's space-travel story, as I was worried that we'd covered the star-faring superhero territory a bit too well in the past. If the secret of Captain Marvel's kitty is what it seems to be, we may be in for a hell of a ride over the next couple of issues, but it's a ride I'm nonetheless looking forward to. Captain Marvel #7 is an issue with a lot of charm and quiet development before the weird stuff kicks in, with a surprising turn halfway through, and some really lovely art (which is a theme in this title over the last couple of years).
