Captain Marvel #3

Writer: Kelly Sue DeConnick
Artist: Dexter Soy

Captain Marvel's adventure in the past alongside the Banshee Squad continues. After an initial confrontation with the Prowlers, Cap and her friends capture an enemy, but Carol soon lets him go with the most defying and daring warning one could give a foe; later, she teaches Daisy Diddle a big lesson about war. Both conversations show how multidimensional DeConnick is making the character; it is a delight. In the art department, Soy gets more and more comfortable illustrating Cap, which is proved here with the many dynamic and action oriented panels he draws and colors. The only objection with this issue is the short page count. The main story is only 16 pages, accompanied with a two-page interlude featuring the departed Helen Cobb, and a fun, old-vintage comic strip that provides a clue as to what DeConnick's final purpose with this arc is.
