    Captain Marvel #23 is another great entry in this series. Garbett’s artwork lends itself to a rugged future lacking much hope, while he is able to put a really nice touch on the action filled moments. After the wild storyline of the previous arc, I thought “The New World” would be a big of a filler bore, but it is anything but! With a titillating final page, I can’t wait to see how Kelly Thompson explains how this one went down!

    But Why Tho?

    Captain Marvel #23 delivers yet another strong entry in the series. With the new personalities more familiar, and a surprise twist at the end of the issue, I look forward to seeing where the story will go from here. One thing seems certain. If nothing else, it’ll be higher, further, faster.

    It’s amazing to see the world of Captain Marvel: The End expanded in such a rich way in “The New World Part Two,” and writer Kelly Thompson not only adds new layers to this alternate reality but also delivers more compelling questions about the future of it. Thompson uses this world’s legacy characters to push Carol in new and interesting directions, but the cast is really coming into their own in a relatively short amount of time, and honestly it makes one wonder if we’ll see this group get their own series down the line, because they most certainly merit one. Artist Lee Garbett and colorist Antonio Fabela draw a mean Luke Cage, and they keep up the hitting streak with stellar work throughout, especially when it comes to characters like Rhodes, Brigid, and Sora. The flashback scenes don’t hit quite as well visually, though I’m quite invested in finding out more about this unique take on the Marvel Universe, and that hook will get me coming back for more next issue.

    The Story: The plot moves forward with both surprises and reveals that I was looking forward to seeing unfold. Thompson does a great job with the plot and the characters, but the story felt rushed at times and lacking in emotional context at others. The dynamic of Cage and his daughter deserved more exploration and the impact of events is given a more clinical explanation than emotional one. Still, the story is really good and adds another layer to the story as it brings the characters to a surprising cliffhanger that makes me interested in reading on.

    The Art: Lee Garbett and Belen Ortega deliver some great art in this issue. Everything from the characters to the backgrounds is given great details. I really enjoyed the contrast in styles between the different time periods.

    Despite what the cover shows, this story is mostly just setting up this storyline with one of the characters mainly explaining the events that led to this outcome and Captain Marvel going around gathering her team from the survivors.

    Don’t be fooled by the big set piece on the cover, as usual with these it depicts and event that does not actually happen in this particular story at least. I am sure they just wanted to show off the artwork and not just have a box that says “all exposition” on the cover.

    If you are a fan of this character and want to see them in a new storyline I would recommend it and also it seems a good enough entry on which to start reading from this point as they explain the back story fairly well which is not often the case in these series.
