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

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 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 gu

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
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.

the last two issues in this blew me away. can i ever read a captain marvel comic without having tears in my eyes from carol’s selflessness and care towards others? she has the biggest heart in the world and inspires even the most super — from santa to war machine ✨

Some funny bits but Captain Marvel just doesn't jive with me. I think I'll like the movie though. I hope.

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.

A lot of this is funny/silly, and I love Takara’s art style. But it’s not any kind of

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. It's Cap

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

Bullet Review:

Meh. 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

****second read****

I felt the same. It’s ok. I like it, but it’s too soft. Not cool enough. I’m a grownup and I want my OP, cosmic superhero to beat the shit out of more people.

******first read******

Some great plusses... some damning minuses!


First couple stories were awesome. I loved the flerken part. I loved the rhyming part.

Minuses: everything else. The part with the rats was quite a bore. The part at the end with Santa was so meh... I get that they were trying to be cute and funny, and i

Carol meets Santa in this varied collection of adventures for all the kiddies. I would have preferred a proper story arc. They're cute, but cuteness that rarely works for me. If you like animals, weddings and a return of what seems to be one of Carol's villains, then you should be ok reading this.

Carol's cat Chewie is a Flerken. It lays over a hundred eggs that start to hatch right when Carol's ship is being attacked by a giant black mass. (view spoiler)

In this graphic tome we follow the adventures of Carol Danvers & her cat, Chewie, as they jaunt around the galaxy.

Fun stuff, great art.

The first volume was perfect, so of course I wanted to continue with this.

-a hilarious plot involving Carol, her cat, and Rocket raccoon
-great artwork
-very unique plot lines
-a rockstar that can teleport

-while the rockstar plot was fun, it was kind of weak and lacking
-only the last issue was on the intense/serious side

I highly enjoyed this volume and it's now made it to my favorites which up until now only consisted of The Unbelievable Gwenpool!

The second book in the new Captain Marvel series was still entertaining, but not so much as the first. In particular, I rather liked the first part, as much as it was obviously fanbait with the cat/"flerkin" storyline and Rocket Raccoon making a guest appearance. 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 cl ...more

While the drawing model for Rocket is a little...ragged, the characterisation is great - his aggressive Rocket-ness, against Carol’s...recent softening? Good stuff.

Antics with the cat? Good stuff.

Rhyming dialogue? Fuck no. I hate it with Etrigan, I hate it with green eggs and spam. Fuck yeah I’m going to hate it here. What, someone make a bet with Kelly Sue, and she lost? Or is this more “I’m pushing myself as a writer?”

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. Of course, it's Carol Danvers, so there's also a lot of punching and blasting, which is just the way I like it.

I love how Carol interacts with the other characters (especially Jessica Drew), and it helps that they're all likable.

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

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.
