Today's post is on Captain Marvel, Volume 1; Higher, Further, Faster, More by Kelly Sue DeConnick (Writer), and David López (Artist). It is 136 pages long and is published by Marvel. The cover is yellow with Captain Marvel in the center smiling as she looks at the reader. The intended reader is someone who likes comic books, Carol Danvers, and fun reading. There is mild foul language, no sex, and violence in this comic. The story is told from third person close of Captain Marvel. There Be Spoilers Ahead.
From the back of the book- Hero! Pilot! Avenger! Captain Marvel, Earth's Mightiest Hero with an attitude to match, is back and launching headfirst into an all-new ongoing adventure! As Captain Marvel, a.k.a. Carol Danvers, comes to a crossroads with a new life and new romance, she makes a dramatic decision that will alter the course of her life - and the entire Marvel Universe - in the months to come. But as Carol takes on a mission to return an alien girl to her homeworld, she lands in the middle of an uprising against the Galactic Alliance! Investigating the forced resettlement of Rocket Girl's people, Carol discovers that she has a history with the man behind the plot. But when the bad guy tries to blackmail Carol and turn the Avengers against her, it's payback time! Guest-starring the Guardians of the Galaxy!
Review- A great intro into the stand alone adventures of the new Captain Marvel. Carol Danvers wants something more but she just does not know what or how to get it. Tony Stark has an idea about one of the Avengers going into space for months or maybe a year at a time to be a presence and maybe stop somethings from getting too bad too quickly. Carol jumps at the chance to go and we have the first six volumes in this collection. This was a very fun read with lots of action and character development. Carol can stand alone and has needed her series for some time. She shines in this collection and I cannot wait to read what is going to happen next.
I give this comic a Five out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I borrowed this comic from my local library.
