    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Apr 10, 2019

    Captain Marvel #4 energizes the ongoing story by focusing on conflict. Both the writing and the art leap boldly into combat. The headliner fight between Carol and Rogue is unmissable on its own, but the attention paid to Mahkizmo and the Rebellion is rewarding, too. Although one of its strongest accomplishments is ratcheting up anticipation for the climax in #5, this issue is formidable and fully satisfying by itself. Read Full Review

    Kelly Thompson has demonstrating a strong understanding of both Carol Danvers' character as well as Rogue's, so it should be no surprise that their confrontation within this issue only exemplifies that further. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Kellie Keener Apr 10, 2019

    The arena battle and comic as a whole is better thanks to the contributions of Carmen Carnero. The artist does a solid job on the artwork throughout this comic, drawing epic fight scenes and an intriguing post-apocalyptic world and resistance. It all has me very interested to see what comes next in this comic. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Apr 16, 2019

    Captain Marvel #4 is a major let down. That all falls on the failed development of Nuclear Man. At no point does Kelly Thompson make the character a compelling villain. Instead everything the character said and does comes across as incredibly forced. Which is highly unfortunate since Thompson has shown that she knows how to write a fun Captain Marvel. Hopefully this story arc ends in the next issue and this series can move on to much better adventures. Read Full Review
