SHE-HULK joins CAPTAIN MARVEL in her war on Roosevelt Island! But the barrier continues to cut them off from the rest of the world, while Nuclear Man’s ranks are somehow swelling, and something on the island is interfering with super powers.

And what face from Carol’s past is about to show up and change everything?

    Being stranded in a dystopian version of Roosevelt Island isn’t exactly how Carol wanted to spend her day, but we can’t argue it’s brought the best out of her. If you’ve ever wondered why Carol has a reputation for being a leader, look no further than Captain Marvel #3, where writer Kelly Thompson puts all those heroic qualities on display. We don’t just see Carol the powerhouse either (though that is impressive). Instead we get a well-rounded Carol, with compassion, anger, and humor in equal measure. Carol even throws shade on her own “what the hell were they thinking when they wrote that” past by issue’s end. On the visuals side, this is by far Carmen Carnero’s best issue yet, and is absolutely gorgeous from the first page to the last. If you aren’t reading Captain Marvel, do yourself a favor and fix that ASAP.

    But Why Tho?

    This book continues to be one of my most anticipated reads every month. As it continues to display excellent storytelling, art, and direction. With a big cliffhanger leading into next issue, the story has everything that could be asked to keep a reader engaged and coming back for more.

    Earth’s Mightiest Hero continues to be in good hands as this current run of books takes her higher, further, and faster than ever before.

    Told almost entirely without words, Batman #67 is unlike anything seen by Tom King in recent memory. The action of the issue focuses on a kinetic chase-scene as Batman pursues a masked man across the rooftops and into the sewers. While this is hardly an original idea, it is a novelty from King, who is best known for his unusual dialogue.

    The execution of the artwork makes up for the standard story idea. Lee Weeks and Jorge Fornes are in fine form here and the colors by Lovern Kinzierski perfectly portray the idea of Gotham through a series of blended tones. Decent, but only die-hard Batman fans need pick this one up.

    The Super Powered Fancast

    One of the best things about this issue is the surprise ending. There are so many great moments throughout the issue, but the cliffhanger ending is the highlight. Kelly Thompson raises the stakes for both Carol and her forces in this issue and the pace of the story makes many of the moments exciting to read.

    Carmen Carnero’s art is fantastic throughout and both the character details and action art perfectly rendered.

    Major Spoilers

    Maybe having just seen the movie makes me biased, maybe not, but Captain Marvel #3 is a good issue, an entertaining story and one that makes me like Carol Danvers even more, with strong art . Whatever is going on with Roosevelt Island, it’s taking a back seat to the drama between the characters, and I’m really perfectly fine with that.
