I find this version if Captain Marvel more interesting than the one in the last trade, but this still isn't working for me. The plotting is still a little loose, and it seems like Peter David is more interested in making certain points than he is in telling a story. Marvel is his mouthpiece and it's a little too obvious. That being said, there are some interesting points being made, but Marvel is a very hard character to like and the entire book is still a little too talky.

So underrated was this series, David should get more praising of this one.
There is something so logical in Captain Marvel's madness and that makes it so cold.
Greats stuff.
Author Peter David completely trashes a great character. He's made Genis Mar-Vell so completely repugnant I understand now why he was killed off not long after this series ended. David's made Captain Marvel a totally unlikable mass murderer, just to crack a few jokes about the whole situation. It's stunning that the Marvel editors allowed this to make print. It's disgusting.

Perhaps this series redeems itself in the following 2 volumes, but I'm not holding my breath for it.
