    This one was okay. Well, Rocket, I thought the storyline about Captain Marvel protecting her cat was cutesy fun, but it just didn’t push the humor envelope as much as it could have. This volume was certainly less dour than one of the Captain Marvel Volume One’s that I’ve read. (Hint: there's more than one. Bite me, Marvel!) The Lila Cheney storyline was awful. Rock music and comics go together like my grandma and fish net stockings. One vote for Lila Cheney being the worst mutant ever. Redundant po This one was okay.

Rock music and comics go together like my grandma and fish net stockings. One vote for Lila Cheney being the worst mutant ever. Redundant power, boring, et al. The “letter from home” issue was well done and the Xmas holiday story was one that didn’t suck too badly, even if they didn’t include a serial killer Santa. And, Rocket, anytime you make an appearance in a comic, it’s always a welcome thing. How nice, you flarking weasel!

    Rocket Raccoon tried to tell Captain Marvel that her pet cat, Chewie, wasn’t really a cat at all but an alien called a Flerken that would lay eggs everywhere.

Carol didn’t buy this, but it turns out that Rocket was right. Let this be a lesson to us all. When a talking space raccoon tries to tell you that your pet isn’t what it seems, you should listen. Before you can cough up a furball Captain Marvel, Rocket, and their new alien friend Tic are up to their armpits in Flerken eggs while some bad guys attack their spaceship with the goal of capturing Chewie who will fetch a fortune on the interstellar black market. Carol also gets involved in helping teleporter/rockstar/mutant Lila Cheney get out of an arranged marriage on a planet where everyone speaks in rhymes, and then Carol returns to Earth for a day just in time for Christmas and to say goodbye to a very sick friend. The stories in here kinda sound like episodes of Doctor Who rather than Marvel superhero comics, but Carol does get to punch and blast a few people along the way. There’s more of a humorous tone to most of this collection, but there’s still some solid emotional beats like Carol reading a letter from home and the Christmas story. Like the first volume this one is solid fun.

    Rocket & Chewie steal the show in Stay Fly! Warning: Sorta-Kinda Spoilers Ahead! Honestly, if you've been reading this title, you saw this coming, but the spoiler warning is for the whiner babies. You know who you are... The best part of this volume is (of course) the stuff with Chewie. Rocket and his big mouth have let it slip that he thinks Carol's cat is a Flerken. If true, she would be the last of her kind. And her kind are able to create pathways to pocket dimensions. Or something like that. Rocket & Chewie steal the show in Stay Fly! Warning: Sorta-Kinda Spoilers Ahead!

And her kind are able to create pathways to pocket dimensions. Or something like that. Whatever. She's a hot commodity now. So the question becomes, is she really a Flerken? Well, duh. And I'm sure you can guess by the cover just what exactly she's been hiding in one of those dimensions... Thanks to Rocket, Captain Marvel's kitty is now a target for every kind of unscrupulous alien floating around the universe. But Carol's not giving her cat (or it's kittens) up without a fight! {insert battle with space pirates} Turns out, Chewie is quite a badass in her own right, and after it's all over she gains a fan... The rest of the volume is just so-so. Tic & Carol meet a mutant rockstar when she pops up on their ship for seemingly no reason. There's a good explanation for it, though! Not really. Anyway, they agree to try and help her get out of an odd engagement with a prince from (I think) another dimension...whose people only speak in rhyme? It was an iffy storyline, but still readable. She gets some letters from her friends at home, that (together) tell about their most recent adventure with some villain I've never heard of before. It was still a pretty fun story, though! Reading the letters makes her a bit homesick, so Carol goes back to Earth for 24 hours to tie up some loose ends...and check in on a friend. She ends up getting waylaid by the villain form the letters. However, since it's Christmas, she ends up getting a little help from Santa Clause. No, seriously! The stuff with Chewie the Flerken cat was awesome, and the rest of it is ok. I'm enjoying this lighter version of Captain Marvel, but I do hope the stories get a little more intense in the future.

    maybe more like 3.7? 3.8? I didn't enjoy this volume as much as Captain Marvel's first volume. It felt really disconnected to me; all of the issues included didn't really fit into a common story arc. The first 2 had their own arc about the cat-flerken, which I wasn't too captivated by (thought the Rocket Raccoon cameo was appreciated). The next 2 issues I honestly just didn't understand. It was all about a rockstar who could travel to other dimensions (or galaxies?? I couldn't tell) and made Ca maybe more like 3.7? 3.8?

It was all about a rockstar who could travel to other dimensions (or galaxies?? I couldn't tell) and made Captain Marvel help her out of her unwanted engagement, which seemed like an odd job for Carol. The rest of the volume actually got interesting (was it one issue? two? I'm not sure); there was an old enemy of Carol's (I don't know if I'm supposed to know her or what) that broke out of jail and wants to fight Carol, and Carol returns to Earth to confront her, and there's a friend of Carol's who is in a coma and I'm not entirely sure what's going on with that whole thing but I'm intrigued. I think that after the issues in the first volume, Captain Marvel's story should have continued with the last couple issues in volume 2. That's when things start to get interesting; the other earlier content in the volume just felt sort of irrelevant. Though maybe it will end up being not-irrelevant in volume 3, who knows (not me). But I do really love Captain Marvel and I loved getting to spend time with her again. I was also introduced to the awesome that is Spider-Woman in this volume so if you would excuse me, I must find all of Spider-Woman's comics and lust after them.

    I would be dishonest if I said this volume wasn’t a bit of a letdown after how much I loved Higher, Faster, Further, More. I still love the art. I still love the characters. I still love the sense of humor. But the three stories that make up this particular volume were just so lightweight. Almost bordering on the absurd. One of these would probably have been okay, but three in a row knocked this down a star. I need a little bit of pathos with my absurdity, thank you very much.

One of these would probably have been okay, but three in a row knocked this down a star. I need a little bit of pathos with my absurdity, thank you very much. The first story was my favorite. Following up on Rocket and Carol’s argument from the first volume over whether or not Carol’s beloved cat Chewie was in fact not a cat, but a flerken, we find out that, yes, Chewie is a flerken. In fact, she’s THE flerken. As in, the only one left. Well, for now. Not even a bunch of space pirates trying to kidnap Chewie convinces Carol of her flerkenness. It’s only after Chewie lays one bazillion eggs in a storage locker that Carol gets it. Turns out flerkens carry pocket universes inside of them, and also act as some sort of inter-dimensional gateway? Anyway, Rocket digs it. The second story was weird, but not in a very fun way. It involved Carol and her new sidekick tag-along Tic (wait, was that her name?) following an intergalactic mutant pop-star to her home planet where all the people speak in rhyming couplets. It was weird in a mostly kind of boring way, sad to say. The third and final story involved Carol returning briefly to New York to take care of some business, including visiting her dying friend, whom I had no context for at the time because I hadn’t yet read the initial Captain Marvel volumes of Kelly Sue DeConnick’s run. Now I have, and this story retroactively makes a little more sense, but it also illustrates a general problem I have with superhero comics. They are really, really dependent on each other, and I don’t really like how unless you’ve read EVERY COMIC EVER, you’re not really going to get everything. Granted, it’s all understandable via context clues, but it still makes me feel not great when I don’t fully appreciate a character interaction or piece of dialogue that only people who read EVERY COMIC EVER will get. Also . . . Santa Claus? Really? Anyway, I will still be reading this series, but hopefully the next volume is back up to standard, bringing a better balance of serious and ridiculous so I can get back to my adoration of Carol Danvers.

    If you’re not a fan of Captain Marvel, this issue probably isn’t going to make you into one. The three storylines are relatively light, though there is some sweet stuff — parts where Spider-woman, Rhodey, Kit, Tic and Chewie all appear. One of the storylines focuses on Chewie, in fact, with Rocket Raccoon along for the ride. There’s also a nice bit with Tracy, continuing the theme of her relationship with Carol.

    Captain Marvel sure is hilarious! She was totally tough here although this Volume felt pretty disjointed with a lot of seemingly random adventures. I loved the whole Fleerkin thing with the Guardians of the Galaxies and Captain Marvel kicking ass as always.

    To me this was a bit of a let down after the awesomeness of Volume 1. The first couple of issues in here were great, Rocket was fantastic and Chewie the cat... it's just hilarious. But then we go on another 'adventure' that I just found unnecessary, strange and a bit silly in the grand scheme of things. Maybe those characters will reappear further along the story arc and all will make sense, but for now it's just odd and not that interesting. I will, obviously, continue with the series.

    Captain Marvel and Rocket Racoon are great together, always disagree and still help each other ( like brothers and sisters ) I enjoyed the 7 and 8 issue of cource, but after that its nothing special. If you are a fan of Captain Marvel (like me) It is worth it a look

I'm really unimpressed with this volume - from the "meh" Rocket Racoon & flerken story to the horrendous rhyming Dr. Seuss wannabe to the slightly better "Letters from Home" issues. I don't really see anything to make one excited about Carol Danvers in this, and yet we're supposed to care because she's been gone so long - I didn't realize there was so much time passage in 11 issues (maybe it's different when you're reading them monthly instead of in a trade) - and she's away f Bullet Review: Meh.

Takara did some pretty solid work for issue 7, 8 and 10. The rest was Lopez (who drew the first volume.) Not my fav. I preferred Takara. I want this to be an awesome series. I really do. I like Kelly Sue Deconnick as a person. I like her voice. She’s a good writer. Why can’t she apply that talent to delivering us something epic, badass and exciting! She’s got fun down. I like fun. Can the fun involve kicking the shit out of more badguys? Begrudgingly, I do have to recommend it. It’s fun. It’ll make you smile. My gripe is that it could have been much better.

I still like a lot of the songs, though I probably won’t revisit the TV show, because I doubt it would live up to my fond memories of it.) There’s Carol’s cute little friend Kit – AKA Lt. Trouble – and her pintsized friends trying to be helpful because of/despite some jeopardy. Rhodey has some nice moments while doing the hero thing. And there’s the misleadingly named villain Gracie Valentine – but I like the idea of naming a villain that, because in real life, the names our parents give us usually don’t reflect our personalities. Then there are the rats. Lots of rats. Some with transistors on their heads. Spider-Woman’s reaction to them is truly priceless, including: “Rats! On me! I have rats on me! Oh my God, I hate being an Avenger who does this!” Plus we have an appearance by Santa Claus – first a faux one, then the real one. Though there’s also a touch of the poignant: It turns out that Tic has a really short life span, and Carol’s dear friend Tracy is in the hospital, seemingly with something terminal.

The second half, involving an alien prince who is being forced to marry against his will (obvious reversed-gender role fable here) in a culture where everyone has to speak in rhymes (leading to some hilarious efforts by Carol, who is clearly no poet) was okay, but felt like filler as the writer works on what Carol's next epic space adventure will be. The appearance by teleporting mutant Lila Cheney, whom I have not seen since New Mutants waaaay back in the day, was nostalgic but also a bit fluffy. The last story, a bit of filler involving Captain Marvel's friends back on Earth fighting some supervillain mastermind I haven't even heard of, was notable only for the presence of Spider Woman. Who is very hot and my personal superheroine crush. ;) Otherwise though, this volume was long on cute kitties and romance and grrrl power and short on space opera, very clearly aimed at a juvenile audience. Which is fair - Marvel and DC should be aiming more at young readers and less at aging fans with long memories for continuity like me. But this Captain Marvel, while well drawn and funny and occasionally clever, is not really for me.

I know I’m feeling harsh now, but I’m feeling disappointed by where the Carol Corps got taken here. This doesn’t feel particularly empowering, or “here’s what women can do” or even a fresh take on a comic book trope. Well, maybe a fresh take - but it just feels like less than I expected. I’m not even convinced that KSDC had a clear vision of who Carol was by this point. She started out talking about how Carol was rash, headstrong, act first/think later, and the early stories didn’t disagree with that. But now we’re just *telling* the reader, instead of showing? The last issue’s good tho. Glad for that at least. June Covington is a nightmare, and someone worthy of bringing out Carol’s nasty side. Not a fan of how the conflict resolved, but at least Tracy got a nice gift.

    Heck yes! This is very likely the most fun I've had reading a Captain Marvel comic, and maybe one of the most entertaining comic books I've read, period. DeConnick writes in plenty of humour and balances it with moments that tug at your heart.

I prefer Marcio Takara's style, but David Lopez' stuff is still decent. My main takeaway point? This kind of book is why I read comics. I want characters I care about to take me on an adventure that makes me laugh, marvel, maybe feel a little sad, but come out of it all feeling good. Feeling happy. DeConnick's Captain Marvel series does this with flying colours, and this volume is the best yet. Well done.

    Why did I pick this book? It's Captain Marvel. Duh. The Verdict? I want a Kit spin-off. I want nothing but that spunky little girl showing her friends how they too can be heroic like her friend Captain Marvel. I have to say that I think I enjoy Carol's adventures on Earth more than I enjoy her adventures in space. I enjoy her interactions with her friends and "family" back on Earth, so issue 10 is by far my favorite part of this book. While I don't love the storyline in it, I am impressed that one Why did I pick this book? It's Captain Marvel. Duh. The Verdict? I want a Kit spin-off.

While I don't love the storyline in it, I am impressed that one issue is basically told entirely in rhyme. Plus, kitties! Or flerkin! Whatever they are, they're cute!

    This was just super weird. I really wasn't into the plot, it kept taking super strange turns and I wasn't feeling it. Captain Marvel is an interesting character and I really want to love her but I am not enjoying this run. However, at the moment there is only 1 more volume and I am pretty certain that it's the last one for this run so I am planning to finish it, maybe. I really really want to like these. Sigh.

    This one is pure, silly fluff! Rocket Raccoon was right, Chewie is a Flerken and she's pregnant.. they is a wedding.. and Santa. There is no way I can seriously review this. It's entertaining and cute, not much to dislike but not as good as volume 1. The Chewie and Raccoon stuff was hilarious, but the rest was a bit needlessly bizarre and didn't seem to fit.

    This continues the quality with a generally light and humorous approach, making for an enjoyable read. The Chewie reveal was fun even if obvious though the follow up rhyming story felt weak. The Christmas 2 parter had some nice moments including a Santa cameo!? Great art and Carol remains a very enjoyable character.
