    Fazekas and Butters deliver the superhero book we've been waiting for. I absolutely loved the first issue, and this second chapter is a worthy follow-up. Carol Danvers' loyalty to her team no matter the cost makes Captain Marvela winning story. Read Full Review

    "Captain Marvel" #2 shows how this book can appeal both to longtime readers as well as a new audience. It's got a charming and inviting cast, a story that takes no time at all in hitting high gear and the promise of further mystery and intrigue on a regular basis. (And for those wishing for a new "Alpha Flight" comic, this is almost certainly the closest you're going to get thanks to the presence of Sasquatch, Aurora and Puck.) I'm sold. You should be, too.

    Carol may have a new job, but that doesn't mean that alien weirdness just stopped following her around, but this month, the weirdness is hitting a little closer to home than she might have expected. Read Full Review

    Captain Marvel is, so far, a very good book with the potential to become a great one. The solid writing is hindered by the simplistic art, but I'm willing to overlook Anka's missteps and blame them on Marvel's current, grueling, publishing schedule. Rest assured, I'll be following the good Captain wherever she leads, as long as this book's story continues to deliver. Read Full Review

    Kelly Sue DeConnick's Captain Marvel run left quite the red boots to fill, yet only two issues in it appears that the creative team of Michelle Fazekas, Tara Butters and Kris Anka are up to the task. Read Full Review

    Fazekas, Butters and Marvel have gone to great lengths to give Captain Marvel a weird and unique supporting cast, and they really need to put that to good use. Read Full Review
