    Captain Marvel #19 will have every Captain Marvel fan smiling from ear to ear, and yes, Lauri-ell is already one of the best new additions of 2020. Writer Kelly Thompson brings all of Carol’s best aspects to light in this issue, and Lauri-ell is a perfect compliment, allowing Thompson even more opportunities to showcase how funny this book can be. That said, it doesn’t hurt when Chewie and Lauri-ell make such an amazing pair. The book also moves the overarching Kree-Skull story forward in some intriguing ways, and if you’ve been a fan of Cap for a while, you’re going to lose your mind when that all-star team forms. On the visuals side, artist Cory Smith and colorist Tamra Bonvillain outdo themselves with a delightful fight sequence that mixes frantic action with small but incredibly effective comedic touches. You’re going to laugh and cheer your way throughout this entire issue, making this a must for any fan.

    Comics: The Gathering

    Carol and her new half-sister each get an equal portion of narrative attention in this fast, funny, finely-illustrated comic. The arc still has its share of unanswered questions, big and small, but this issue is an example of a “middle act” done exceedingly well.

    Lauri-ell was the stand out star of Captain Marvel #19, and it will be a shame if she’s killed off or written out of the story at the end of the Empyre event. Far from feeling like a cheap plot twist, Lauri-ell’s character has the potential to add a lot to Carol’s story going forward and to provide a look at how unique Carol is for having both human traits. Even once the Empyre event ends, Captain Marvel’s time as the Accuser is sure to have an effect on her thoughts and choices, and hopefully, her half-sister can be a part of that.

    But Why Tho?

    Captain Marvel #19 provides some fun moments and setups up the next issue in an interesting way. I wont spoil what it is, but Im excited about it. Thompson has found a clever way of incorporating some of Carols best friends into the story and I am always here for a Carol and friends adventure.

    Captain Marvel #19 is an interesting beast. It’s almost the epitome of the problem that has affected Kelly Thompson’s run on Carol Danvers’ book since the beginning: it’s a good comic, unfortunately plagued with a bad premise that it has to work with.


    Unfortunately, the art isn’t as good as this story deserves. It’s not bad, by any means, to be clear. But it’s not quite up to par with the writing here – they should be having someone like Pepe Larazz or R. B. Silva on this. The great redeeming grace of this book is the color work by Tamra Bonvillain, who makes a book that just pops with color and brilliance.

    Captain Marvel #19 is worth a purchase by any fan of Carol Danvers. Despite being saddled with a poor premise, Kelly Thompson writes a very good comic.

    Ultimately, Captain Marvel #19 is a bit of a let down. It’s cool to see Carol coming into contact with her half sister and even having a chance to establish some sort of relationship, but it lacks depth and intrigue to stand out as anything other than an obligatory tie-in to an already lackluster event.
