    This rollercoaster ride of an arc not only introduced a delightful new character into Carol's world but also found a way to make a tie-in more rewarding than the series it tied into, and what a joyful ride it's been. Read Full Review

    Overall, I haven't minded this little arc. As I am not reading Empyre, I was a little concerned that these would be lame duck issues. With Thompson introducing Lauri-Ell, she has given us a sort of “Carol-by-proxy” to keep the readers entertained, whilst Carol is doing her war stuff off panel. A surprisingly well executed arc. Well done. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Sep 9, 2020

    With Captain Marvel #21 Carols battle through the Empyrestoryline comes to a close. It successfully delivers a strong finish to this narrative diversion. And while it couldve been just that, a diversion, it instead managed to deliver yet another promising character we can add to the already sterling line up of support players to Carols story.

    Carol and a crew take on an almost endless wave of plant based cannon fodder, but the real victory was the friendships made along the way. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Kellie Keener Sep 10, 2020

    The end of the Empyre event feels like a relief because the tie-in issues haven't been as interesting as other arcs have been. What kept this arc from completely falling flat was the introduction of Lauri-ell as a character, as well as the inclusion of Captain Marvel's close friends War Machine, Hazmat, and Spider-Woman as Accusers. While it would be great to see those characters come back in future issues, hopefully, they won't have the pressure of carrying the entire arc on their shoulders.  Read Full Review
