The Dark Elf King Malekith and his allies have conquered Earth! At least, they THINK they have - and they've divided the spoils accordingly, with the Enchantress raising an army of the dead and staking her claim on South America. But if the Enchantress is expecting a royal welcome, she's forgotten what she's dealing with - Earth isn't going down without a fight. And as Captain Marvel leads DOCTOR STRANGE and BLACK WIDOW into the land of the dead, nothing about this mission will be what our heroes expect.

    Artist Annapaola Martello does a nice job filling in for Carmen Carnero, and while overall this isn't a must buy, Captain Marvel fans will not regret picking it up. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Jun 6, 2019

    This issue took a dramatic fight scene, a classic comic trope, and mashed them together for a unique (and at times hilarious) plot. And I sincerely cannot wait to see more about this plot. Or to find out how far the gossip train will spread amongst our heroes. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Jun 5, 2019

    So, even if you, like myself, have not been keeping up with the War of the Realmscrossover I would not hesitate to pick up this book. Despite the story being taken over by the company wide event the creative team has managed to keep it infused with all the things I've come to love about Captain Marvel. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Jun 8, 2019

    Kelly Thompson gives readers a War of the Realms tie-in that can be read by regular readers of the book regardless of whether they are invested in the Event or not. Its the start of a fun Freaky Friday team-up that is already a lot of fun. Recommended. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Kellie Keener Jun 5, 2019

    Fortunately for fans that aren't interested in reading the main War of the Realms title, this tie-in is as self-contained as a tie-in can be. There's a blurb at the front of the book explaining what the War of the Realms is, and since Malekith isn't the main antagonist in this story, that summary is enough. Regardless of being a tie-in issue, this is still a great Captain Marvel story. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Jun 5, 2019

    In Captain Marvel #6, the creators rely on a somewhat threadbare premise to put the cherry on top of their tie-in sundae. The art is lean on detail but vivacious, and the script is scrupulously witty. If it relies on a "safe" plot twist, it also shows that such storytelling tools get used (and risk getting over-used) because they make it easy to build a thoroughly satisfying story. And that's certainly the result in this case. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Nicholas Osborn Jun 12, 2019

    Captain Marvel #6 struggles to maintain the momentum established during the highly enjoyable first arc, but the War of the Realms tie-in still manages to find its moments to feel worthwhile. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - L.E.H. Light Jun 9, 2019

    Overall, The War of the Realms tie-in will all be over in another issue. Camero will be back on art, and we can get back to Carol being Carol (maybe with some more new heroes at her side). If you're not reading the rest of The War of the Realms, maybe skip this one and come back around for #8 in July. Read Full Review
