    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Mar 19, 2021

    It shows how much effort and talent Marvel are putting into “just” a regular book; you have superstar writer Kelly Thompson, David Lopez, expert colorist in Triona Farrell and the event letterer and X-font creator Clayton Cowles! How can you not be impressed by this book. Captain Marvel, Black Cat and the up and coming Spider-Woman, which has found its feet, go to show that Marvel has their fingers on the pulse when it comes to their female led books.

    AIPT - Lia Galanis Mar 17, 2021

    Captain Marvel#27 is just purefun,and it's hard to read the issue without smiling a few times. From the cast's chemistry to the comedy of Jessica Drew's disastrous but well-meaning attempts to cheer up Carol, this comic is kind of like a slice of life issue after the big plot. Read Full Review

    A fun, introspective issue that Kelly really excels at when shes done with a big storyline. Mixed with beautiful pages by David Lopez, and youve got a gorgeous piece of art. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Mar 17, 2021

    I've been looking forward to Captain Marvel #27 ever since I saw the cover (and those variant covers! Swoon), and it did not let down. It was entertaining, human, and exasperating all in one, and made it the perfect issue to follow such an intense plot arc. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Mar 17, 2021

    Captain Marvel #28 is a fun comic with an ample supply of wacky antics to jolly Carol (and readers) over her breakup. But it's not exactly a "breather" episode, a one-off, or a quick fix. There will be Consequences to Carol's choices here, and the insightful creative work dives deep into the pain she's feeling. It's written with an exquisite blend of humour and heartache, and it doesn't hurt that the art is magnificent. Read Full Review

    When all is said and done, Captain Marvel #27delivers a fun read, flavored with some genuine emotion. The final pages of the book take a surprising turn, and I feel like Thompson's signature brand of quirky character writing is going to have some excellent opportunities to shine in the coming issues.

    This is going to end terribly mind you, and the characters know that too, but it's going to make for an unforgettable story with all the heart at the core of it that makes this series work so well, and I'm in for all of it. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Kellie Keener Mar 17, 2021

    Despite serving as a bridge between story arcs, Captain Marvel #27 holds its own. An entertaining story, Captain Marvel #27 also explores Carols emotions as she heals from her experiences in the future and her breakup. Captain Marvel #27 is a pause to remember that despite being a half Kree superhero, Carol is still very human.  Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Weird Science Jim Mar 17, 2021

    Kelly Thompson continues writing Captain Marvel for Carol's fans, and as one, I am enjoying it. This issue sets up a big thing by the end but is more about helping out a friend who is down in the dumps, even if she doesn't think she wants help. Sure, it's a pity party, but it was nice all the same. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Mar 19, 2021

    Captain Marvel #27 does a good job giving weight to the big personal decision Carol Danvers made in her life in the previous issue. How Jessica Drew and others help Carol through this decision worked well to put over their relationship. The person that Carol ends up with at the end of Captain Marvel #27 could lead to some interesting stories down the line if it turns out to be a long-term thing. We'll have to wait and see on that.
