Captain Marvel #1 (2016),
VERY FINE/NEAR MINT
BONUS REVIEW by Shawn
(W) Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas
(A/CA) Kris Anka
Face front, true believers! The Captain has made her return and oh, how mighty it is. It's a bold new frontier for Carol Danvers as she soars to new heights in her greatest mission yet--leader of the all-new Alpha Flight space program. Yup, Alpha Flight. As earth's first line of defense, Carol and her team aim to protect the planet from extraterrestrial threats. But can Carol be a soldier and a diplomat? Especially when an unknown enemy emerges that Carol can't quite punch. The superstar team behind Marvel's Agent Carter television series, Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas, make their comics debut alongside the awesomely-talented Kris Anka. Rated T+

Marvel really, really, really wants me to love Carol Danvers, just like they wanted me to love Ghost Rider in the 90's. I can assume this because you can't swing a dead cat without hitting the character-now appearing in 3 ongoing titles.
Oddly enough, I liked seeing the character more in the other two books, but I'm a fan of both Abigail Brand and Alpha Flight, so I will continue to follow this new entry in the Danversverse.
Highly recommended by Marvel.
I give it 6 out of 10 Grahams
