TRIAL BY MAGIC AND FIRE!
Carol's "crimes" against a powerful foe are coming back to haunt her as Agatha Harkness, helming a tribunal of some of Marvel's most powerful magic-wielders, puts her on trial. But Captain Marvel isn't exactly thrilled to recognize this court's authority, nor does she appreciate being held against her will. Back on Earth, in the midst of a spiraling identity crisis, Binary's skills are put to the test when she must aid Spider-Woman in protecting humans against themselves.

    Frigeri and Lopez deliver some great art throughout the issue. The different styles work beautifully together and perfectly complement the story. Read Full Review

    Captain Marvel has grown exponentially as a character and a hero thanks to her time in the world of magic, and if this is any indication, we still haven't seen just how far this character can truly go. Read Full Review

    Binary definitely is the least gripping part of the book right now, but its the one being advertised the most. Alvaro Lopez does a good job with the art in these panels, so the book is never unenjoyable. Thompson's writing soars when she's picking apart Carol's character (and Amora, for that matter), but the Binary story feels out of place and a bit too juvenile. Read Full Review

    Captain Marvel #39 does a fantastic job using the past story revolving around Ove to create immediate concern about what Carol Danvers is dealing with as Marvel's Magic Tribunal places her on trial. That along with Binary's character arc continuing to gain momentum makes a lot of what takes place here work extremely well. It is just to bad that the hook ending of Captain Marvel #39 ended up falling flat or else I would've scored this issue higher. Read Full Review

    This series has become the one I look forward to the most. Another great issue! I haven't read the entire series, still trying to hunt down back issues, but that doesn't seem to matter, I don't feel lost or anything. The characters are interesting, the plot engaging and the art is good. I just want to keep reading more but it's still on the classic monthly release schedule. Come on bi-weekly Captain Marvel!

    Captain Marvel (back to Mar-vell) was one of my first favourite characters in comics. Mid-2000's he felt like a legend in the Marvel Universe. That got me into Genis-vell, who was already dead after Thunderbolts 100 when I started enjoying his character. That was a great run that had a far too meta ending to really give it cl more

    I was always uncertain about this Binary character. She was born out of strange circumstances where Carol just willed her into existence, now she can change her form at will. She seems very OP.

    I also didn't like that they had two different artists on this and stuck vampires into it. I hope they're not going down the DC route with the vampires. And the magical tribunal seems very out of place. How does Enchantress even remember Ove if all that occurred in the future? Not a fan of what's going on right now. I think Kelly has jumped the shark on this one. Hopefully she rights herself.
