    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Aug 23, 2018

    The Life of Captain Marvel #2 is an excellent deep dive into the life and history of Carol Danvers. We get to see our hero struggle further with her life as an impending threat approaches. The art team contributes great work, and the comic earns another strong recommendation. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    Marvel is finally giving Carol Danvers what she needs: an uninterrupted story and a great art team. Marvel appears committed to fulfilling writer Margaret Stohl's mission of redefining the character. The storytelling is traveling at a slower pace but in that pacing Stohl is showcasing real character development. Carlos Pacheco is nailing it in the art department despite the lack of super heroics and action. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Aug 22, 2018

    Its safe, slow plot keeps this issue from being as great as its presentation suggests it should be. The Life of Captain Marvel #2 takes very pretty steps with poise and grace. They are small steps and there aren't a lot of them, though. This is clearly one chapter in a larger story, but it feels like an early frontrunner for this title's "least memorable issue" award.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Aug 26, 2018

    Margaret Stohl did a great job showing how Carol Danvers relationship with her family is much more complicated than she even knew throughout The Life of Captain Marvel #2. The weight added to what she learned created more interest in how Carol will interact with her family moving forward. Unfortunately the quality of The Life of Captain Marvel #2 was brought down by the Kree sub-plot that felt forced in to create a predictable superhero story. Hopefully this portion of the story is developed better as it could make or break The Life of Captain Marvel's success. Read Full Review
