BONUS REVIEW by "Doc" Schaefer


This was surprisingly not as bad as I thought. With the movie on the horizon and the previews for it being somewhat awful, I had little hope for this new title. But Dale Eaglesham's art of the Rock of Eternity are amazing. Geoff Johns story brings up a lot of Captain Marvel's past incarnations (including Hoppy, the Marvel Bunny) and I really, really want to know Mike Atiyeh manages to mix that perfect combination of whites and blues to make the lightning seem to glow on the page. While not an overall blockbuster, this title is off to a good start and enough to keep you entertained.

I give it 7 out of 10 Grahams
