    Captain Marvel and the Carol Corps, Kelly-Sue DeConnick's Captain Marvel elegy, was all about expanding horizons, pushing onward, moving in new directions. Contrast that with the way that Fazekas and Butters have painted their Captain Marvel into a corner, tying up her past and future in a tense, chaotic knot, pushing and pulling her in several directions at once. Yup, that's just like Anka draws this issue's action: past and present, tension and dynamic movement, all tied up in one fiery instant. Read Full Review

    Captain Marvel #4 keeps up with that escalation of events which in turn keeps us at the edge of our seats. It is all or nothing at this point and hopefully they don't let up on this great balance between character writing and plot development. Read Full Review

    This is a fine, entertaining comic so far. The creative team keeps winding things around one another, and I'm having an easy job keeping up. The action is great, with the art team really showing their chops. Read Full Review

    There are a lot of moving parts to Captain Marvel's first arc, from alien assailants to space subterfuge and everything in between. It's strange then that even with everything going on, issue #4 feels somewhat disconnected. Read Full Review
