    Captain Marvel is at her best when her back is against the wall, and writer Kelly Thompson seems to know that. It's in these moments that fans get a glimpse of the person underneath all that power, showing just how human and relatable Carol is, and reminding us why we fell in love with the character all those years ago.

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Jul 21, 2019

    Captain Marvel #8 was an intense but interesting read. The intensity makes sense, given that it's following War of the Realms and a strong sense of foreshadowing. It was a strong lead to a new plot"one that'll be interesting to see where it ends up. Read Full Review

    I'm glad we're back with a new plot for Carol. Thompson can show off her creativity and ability to deliver the laughs, the punches, and the hugs in equal measure. This team is only going to get stronger as they dive into what makes Carol tick and build her relationships around her. Read Full Review
