    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Aug 12, 2020

    Captain Marvel #19 was the perfect blend of plot and event tie-in. The adventure that Carol is on is not one we expected, but it's been brilliant, nonetheless. The war is affecting her life, as it's affecting everyone else. Yet she might be gaining something in the process"assuming that things aren't about to go horribly wrong (fingers crossed).

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Aug 12, 2020

    Carol and her new half-sister each get an equal portion of narrative attention in this fast, funny, finely-illustrated comic. The arc still has its share of unanswered questions, big and small, but this issue is an example of a "middle act" done exceedingly well. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Kellie Keener Aug 12, 2020

    Lauri-ell was the stand out star of Captain Marvel #19, and it will be a shame if she's killed off or written out of the story at the end of the Empyre event. Far from feeling like a cheap plot twist, Lauri-ell's character has the potential to add a lot to Carol's story going forward and to provide a look at how unique Carol is for having both human traits. Even once the Empyre event ends, Captain Marvel's time as the Accuser is sure to have an effect on her thoughts and choices, and hopefully, her half-sister can be a part of that. Read Full Review

But the prime suspect right now is her half-sister Lauri-Ell who swears she is innocent, and Carol believes her. But if it's not her, and her Hammer isn't showing her who is at fault, how is Carol going to find out who to Accuse? Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Aug 12, 2020

    Captain Marvel #19 provides some fun moments and setups up the next issue in an interesting way. I wont spoil what it is, but Im excited about it. Thompson has found a clever way of incorporating some of Carols best friends into the story and I am always here for a Carol and friends adventure. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Sam Rutzick Aug 12, 2020

    Captain Marvel #19 is worth a purchase by any fan of Carol Danvers. Despite being saddled with a poor premise, Kelly Thompson writes a very good comic. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Nicholas Osborn Aug 27, 2020

    Ultimately, Captain Marvel #19 is a bit of a let down. It's cool to see Carol coming into contact with her half sister and even having a chance to establish some sort of relationship, but it lacks depth and intrigue to stand out as anything other than an obligatory tie-in to an already lackluster event.
