    Captain Marvel #22 starts a brand new adventure in the best way possible. It has heart, action, and enough mystery to leave me dying for my next issue. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Oct 14, 2020

    Lee Garbett delivers some impressive art both in the character moments and in the action. The tone of the art complements the tone of the story really well and there is some great imagery throughout. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 13, 2020

    If you've been along for Thompson's ride on Captain Marvel, you'll love this issue. It builds on previous stories and continues to set a high bar for dialogue and good ideas. If you're interested in big event-level storytelling (and maybe X-Men don't do it for you), you're going to want to check out this new story arc. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Oct 15, 2020

    Usual. This is a word that carries some negative connotations. This book has been a solid book for quite a while now. As such it is sometimes hard to appreciate a book that maintains quality rather than excel for periods of time. But appreciate it you should as Thompson's familiarity with the character ensures that there is great storytelling in every issue. Don't fail to see if for all the other Marvel books, trying to be this good, on the rack. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Kellie Keener Oct 14, 2020

    After the Empyre event seemed to drag on, Captain Marvel #22 is an exciting return to a Carol-centric story that doesnt require reading multiple other books to understand.   Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Aaron Anderson Oct 15, 2020

    I really enjoy the fact that we get to revisit this future timeline, because it gives Captain Marvel a world completely without any continuity hangups to get in the way. It's like an in continuity WHAT IF" comic, or reverse Old Man Logan giving many opportunities for new characters and challenges. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Oct 19, 2020

    Captain Marvel #22 was a solid start to a new story arc. Kelly Thompson gives this issue a aura of being a fresh start after Captain Marvel took part in the recent Empyre event. Bringing in the setting that was seen in Captain Marvel: The End was also a nice change of pace to create new dynamics between Carol Danvers and other fellow superheroes. Read Full Review
