    In short, it's everything you would want in an ending for the Boss of Space, though we're perfectly okay with the real end not coming anytime soon. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Jan 29, 2020

    Recently we have had the "Life of Captain Marvel" mini which shaped the current book, the book that features the current adventures, and so it makes sense that the powers that be get round to Carol's demise. Experienced comic fans will no doubt see the All-Star Superman or The Justice League Fatal Five animated movie touches. Influences are one thing; ideas may be even imitated, but style remains and it is this style that goes to show how great a writer Kelly Thompson can be, especially with this character.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jan 29, 2020

    Carmen Carnero provides some stunning art throughout this issue. The story is very character focused and that is reflected in art that showcases the characters laughing together, fighting together and being expressive in their conversations with each other. The action moments look incredible and the effects to bring to life Carol's evolution of her powers is beautiful. Read Full Review

    Kelly Thompson delivers a deeply satisfying (hypothetical) conclusion to the story of Carol Danvers in "Captain Marvel: The End". Read Full Review

    For this peripheral Captain Marvel fan (I haven't done a deep dive but I like what I've read/seen so far)" this was a satisfying story. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to get a greater feel for who Captain Marvel is and what she stands for. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Jan 29, 2020

    In Captain Marvel: The End, Carol Danvers finds a good death when circumstances conspire to let her save a post-apocalyptic Earth -- as well as friends she thought were lost. It's beautifully illustrated and smartly-written. Although it doesn't make itself a must-read, it does deliver more of the quality character work that's made the current run of Captain Marvel so delightful. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 29, 2020

    It not only holds up the character and her pure nature to help anyone no matter how much they sacrifice, but it serves as a symbol to future generations, which in many ways Carol Danvers does in our reality too. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Jan 1, 1970

    Just as I said when Carnero left the current series of Captain Marvel, her pencils define Carol Danvers for me. She succeeds here in every way. The empowered design of Carol hits that balance between unique and still fitting for the character. The strength she draws from her friends is made so evident in the way Carnero handles Carol's body langue as well. You just feel the change in her as the story develops. And her final images of Captain Marvel shine like the inspiring sun the character is. While I sincerely hope this isn't the last time I see Carnero pencil this character if it ended up so it would be a perfect end. Captain Marvel: The End #1 is a heartfelt love letter to what the character is. It's heroic, charming, and filled with familial warmth and love that can warm the soul, no matter how cold it might get. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Aaron Anderson Jan 29, 2020

    The pencils and colors are just lovely. It really evokes emotion in great places like the melancholy scene with Carol all alone on the ship and the end with Carol's smiling sacrifice. This issue reads really well also. Leaving the art to do the talking when it needs to make this a really good one-shot, but I just don't feel this story does enough original storytelling to justify purchasing or recommending this book to a friend. It's just a basic end of the world story, insert tropes here, mention some cool survivors here, heroes sacrifice The End send to print. The Art truly saves this book from going below a 7.

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Jan 31, 2020

    Captain Marvel: The End #1 is a strong ending for the character. Unfortunately it's propped up on lazy, and emotionally manipulative story beats and cameos. Read Full Review
