    The issues very first panel is an extreme closeup on Carols eye, and the rest of the book keeps up that highly stylized intensity: series of small, tight closeups on faces alternate with big, swooping overhead shots at weird, jarring angles, emphasizing the disorienting interplay between Carols interior battles and outer struggles, the constant whiplash between past and future that defines the Captain Marvel legacy.All told, this is a tight, compelling 20 pages that elegantly juggles big explosions, witty dialogue, psychological thrills, and sci-fi fantasy.

    Its premise is familiar (Captain Marvel teams up with a wisecracking super team and has wacky space adventures) but that doesn't make Carol's latest any less refreshing. Not only are writers Michelle Fazekas and Tara Butters mining a different side of Carol " one physically weakened and emotionally compromised " but they also continue to make the most of the book's supporting cast.

    The new Captain Marvel is entertaining, and I like it, but I hope Fazekas and Smith find time to slow down before too long. This new series needs a good 'day in the life' issue. Read Full Review
