    Dark Origins takes a more entertaining turn with Captain Marvel #127. It plays with its premise better, the plot makes itself clearer, and the art continues to rock. This one gets a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    A solid issue where the mystery is set aside for some really great world-building stuff, and excellent art to boot. Read Full Review
