    Captain Marvel #20 carries forward so many different elements, all of which flawlessly work together to create something grand and exciting. This is by far one of the best tie-in arcs seen in quite some time, providing lots of fun and character development all at once. Read Full Review

    When all is said and done, Captain Marvel #20 delivers everything it sets out to. Humor, action and heart are all rolled into one awesome package. Cant wait for next issue to see where the story will go from here. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 19, 2020

    Captain Marvel #20 is your standard crisis-leads-to-battle-leads-to-consequences story, but it's amped up thanks to the lively and vividly rich characters. The dialogue breathes life into every moment and makes the book a joy to read from the quietest scene to the most bombastic. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Nicholas Osborn Aug 19, 2020

    With both a foundation of Carol's origins in Kree lore and plenty of spectacular action, Captain Marvel #20 certainly stands out as one of the better tie-in issues we've seen so far from the series. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Aug 19, 2020

    Captain Marvel #20 takes it a little easy on the plot front, pushing the story forward with simple development of what's come before. Thanks to outstanding art and charming dialogue, this issue is in no danger of disappointing. It continues to spin gold out of the title's connection to the Empyre event -- essentially a best-case scenario for a tie-in. Read Full Review

    I accuse this comic of being just okay and Lauri-ell of being a sweetheart. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Kellie Keener Aug 19, 2020

    While Captain Marvel #20 was an overall enjoyable story, its becoming harder to care about the stakes if you arent following the rest of the Empyre event. Some questions cant be answered by just reading this story, like what do the Cotati want, and why are they such a threat to Earth? Readers shouldnt have to follow multiple tie-ins and the titular event comic to keep up with the characters theyre personally interested in. This isnt the fault of the creative team behind Captain Marvel #20, theyre doing their best to keep Carols story entertaining, but its going to be a huge relief when the Empyre event finally ends, and Captain Marvels story can go back to standing largely on its own.  Read Full Review
