DEAD MAN’S HAND! It’s poker night at Casa Danvers, and with Wolverine, Monica Rambeau, Spider-Woman, Hazmat, Jessica Jones and Ms. Marvel all in the game, Carol might just lose her shirt. But who – or what – is THE NEXUS and why is it ruining this much needed R&R!?!

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Aaron Anderson Jul 15, 2020

    I truly loved this quick one and done issue. Just some friends playing some games until a NEW Villain pops in to give them something to escape from, and possibly seeding his reappearance in future issues to come. I also think Francesco Manna's art will fit in beautifully with the artists that came before. This left me smiling with warmth in my heart and sometimes that's all you need to get through the next Event. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Jul 15, 2020

    In conclusion, Captain Marvel #17 serves as a wonderful little welcome back for its title character and friends after the long break. With Carol slated to take a large roll in the upcoming Empyre crossover event, it was extra nice to have this fun little side adventure before the big story drops. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Jul 15, 2020

    In Captain Marvel #17, the challenge of concocting an entertaining, all-ages game night leads to a life-and-death escape room struggle. A solid cape-conflict is significantly enhanced by great art, some top-shelf comedic character work, and Kamala Khan's well-rendered presence. If anything can foster crossover between the Captain Marvel and Magnificent Ms. Marvel audiences, it's this comic's perfect blend of the two series' sensibilities. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Jul 15, 2020

    Captain Marvel #17 was the perfect issue to follow the last plot arc in the series. It still threw a serious villain at Captain Marvel (and her friends), while also feeling a bit freer to have some fun. This is likely something that happens to Carol all the time, so it's a delight to see portrayed here. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 15, 2020

    Anyone not feeling the need to read Empyre and its major tie-in implications should dive right into this issue. Not only does it have good vibes, an easy-going plot, and some great character writing, but it's a nice slice-of-life story that feels like it could really happen. That is, if superheroes were real.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jul 19, 2020

    Captain Marvel #17 is by far the best issue that Kelly Thompson has written during her run on this series. This comic book is just pure fun as Thompson spotlights the friendship between Marvel heroes as Captain Marvel, Wolverine, Ms. Marvel, Spider-Woman, Spectrum, and Hazmat have fun together during a game night. It is such a refreshing change of pace and story that stands out from all the superhero stories Marvel fans are used. If you are a Marvel fan Captain Marvel #17 is a comic book you should check out.

    Comic Watch - Nicholas Osborn Jul 16, 2020

    Captain Marvel #17 is a fun slice of life story featuring Carol and many of her friends, serving as a solid chance to catch your breath after the Dark Captain Marvel arc and before Empyre hits, but it feels like a filler issue and just doesn't quite do enough to keep readers hooked.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jul 15, 2020

    Francesco Manna does a great job with the art in the issue. The characters look great, but there wasn't enough to really do from a story perspective so the art never really got the chance to be that impressive. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Kellie Keener Jul 15, 2020

    Ultimately Captain Marvel #17 feels like unnecessary filler. It isnt interesting enough to stand on its own as fluff, and its too self-contained to be a bridge between arcs.  Read Full Review
