action-loaded start for the "Captain Marvel" title, Kelly Sue
DeConnick changes the pace to present a more intimate story, as she
shares a day in the life of Carol Danvers. The dialog is smart and
entertaining, full of fun remarks and situations. Cap's supporting
cast comes together to show how far the book has come in such a
short time, and a new development for Earth's mightiest hero shocks
not only her, but also the readers. Great plot.
The art is surely
going to be the polarizing topic in this new phase of the title. The
departure of Dexter Soy has left a huge void to fill; his work was
not only different, but also very well received. Filipe Andrade
takes over the art duties with a stylized technique that is more
common in indie books; an acquired taste that might become divisive
amongst fans. If Marvel truly feels this is top grade art, then why
is it not being showcased in "Avengers" or "Superior Spider-Man?"
