    I was a pretty unsure what to expect with this one ? my first Captain Marvel comic without Kelly Sue DeConnick at the helm. To make it worse, I don?t know anything about Alpha Flight, so I was bombarded with a bunch of new characters; I don?t even know if they appeared elsewhere ...

    Thank fucking Stan they brought back Abigail Brand. Best. Character. I?ve. Ever. Missed. No idea why Alpha Flight has been chosen by the world/SHIELD/USA to be the strike force on the SWORD platform, but as a diehard Canadian I?ll take any representation, even tokenism. Fun...

    I was underwhelmed by the previous iteration of Captain Marvel, which had great promise held back by lackluster and, to be honest, incompetent storytelling. I picked this up for two reasons: a new creative team and Alpha Flight. This version is merely okay. Carol Danvers and thre...

    Carol's as tough as ever, even with shorter hair! I loved Carol as part of a team, especially one as stubborn and punch-happy as she is. The team had a fun dynamic, although there was probably some previous issues I need to have read to fully understand all the relationships. Regardles...

    Hey, You don't have Abigail Brand's characterization down right. I think that making a superhero team out of a military group, protecting a space base is a novel idea. I like that Alpha flight is the team they have serving on the base, but that is really all that I like about this b...

    Grabbed me from the first page when Carol said, "It's not that I'm a violent person. It's just that some things really, really need punching." A fun story with cool, compelling characters, especially Brand, and fantastic art. Looking forward to the next volume. ...

    54th book read in 2018. Number 118 out of 714 on my all time book list. So good - like a Marvel deep space nine. ...

    Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers is now head of Alpha Flight for some reason! That?s, uh, something meaningful to someone I guess? Off she goes to a space station orbiting Earth to save us from aliens and stuff. Hooray? belch. I want to like Captain Marvel but I wasn?t into Kelly ...

    A fun read if nothing special. It's basically Captain Marvel on Deep Space Nine which is a really cool premise and it just works so well. ...

    Captain Marvel decides a change of scenery and a recommitment to service is in order when she takes a two-year posting as commander of an orbiting space station. Designed as a proactive deterrent to future galactic excursions, the good Captain is expecting a life of adventure, but find...

    New Carol has a more consistent script that DeConnick Carol. She is also more superhero-looking and more kick-ass. I missed Chewie, earth Carol, and the comic side of the character that her former writers knew exploited so well. ...

    Carol Danvers is awesome! Intelligent, witty, sarcastic, loyal, and brave. This was my first foray into Captain Marvel and I?m hooked. I enjoyed getting to know Carol and the crew aboard the space station. The story was intriguing, action-packed, and fun. Looking forward to the secon...

    Yeah.. It was ok. I really want to like Cap Marvel but... that one-dimensional character without having a fucking personality, is not doing it for me. This is Cap. Marvel: Oh something is coming this way and it looks threatening to the world that I'm protecting. I'm gonna punch i...

    This is what I want from a Captain Marvel story - a powerful woman who punches her way through situations until punching doesn't work any more, than finds better solutions. Teaming her up with Alpha Flight (whose characters unfortunately don't get enough development here) and putting h...

    The made-up myth about space stations in comic books identified and then explained: Ostensibly a deep space station is designed as a first line of defense against interstellar threats and that?s partially true; however, the reasoning behind putting superheroes way out there can be s...

    Carol and the Alpha Team are back with new costumes and adventures. Something strange is happening, calling to Carol in the most unnerving way. It'll take the entire team to figure out what's going on and how to stop it. I really enjoyed this story but I thought it was going to go a...

    Captain Marvel has accepted the command of the Alpha Flight Space Station. The station is Earth's intergalactic defense. Rise of Alpha Flight feels like Star Trek Deep Space Nine with super heroes. Which would be fine except I grew up with my father watching every single Star Trek...

    Now THAT was a Captain Marvel comic! I hate to say it, but Kelly Sue just didn't bring it in the last couple of runs. Michelle Fazekas & Tara Butters kicked ass in this volume and I can't wait to see where the rest of the this run takes us! Rating: 4.25/5 stars ...

    A bit of a slog at times. Capt Marvel heads up a new space station to protect Earth called Alpha Flight. Basically the exact same thing S.W.O.R.D. did. In fact, a watered down version of Agent Brand is in this book too. The crew also contains 3 members of Alpha flight which is a bit co...

    3.75! Good fun, until the rushed ending! World: Love the art, it's stylish and the characters are full of emotion. The tone is really set well by the art. The world building is even better. I love Alpha Flight, I'm Canadian and it was a thing for me, I even have Alpha Flight #1 f...

    THIS is Carol Danvers. THIS is what she was meant to do. After the silliness of Secret Wars (cause seriously, that whole event and many other Marvel events are silly), she is now in charge of Alpha Flight, the successor to S.W.O.R.D. which deals with intergalactic threats. Not one to b...

    Let me get this out in the open before I start: I am a HUGE fan of Alpha Flight and have been since John Byrne's original run back in the early '80s. They're a team that have struggled to find an audience over the years but have always been too polite to complain. Any book that feature...

    Kind of a slow start. It felt like all exposition and then a rushed ending. It was?underwhelming. I still love Carol though. It?s great to see a woman who loves adventure and likes to punch things. We get this all the time with male characters so don?t fucking tell me she?s bla...

    compared to the two previous captain marvel arcs (kelly sue deconnick?s captain marvel), this is very impersonal and therefore boring story of carol. there is no character depth except for issue five. it?s also character heavy ? captain marvel and abigail brand are the two main c...

    2.5 stars? I don't know. I impulse bought this book from Barnes and Noble during one of their Buy 2 Graphic Novels, Get 1 Free sales. I love Carol and I love Kristofer Anka so I thought it would be okay. It was very, very meh. The art is wonderful! I love the lines and the color...
