Captain Marvel #9

Writer: Kelly Sue DeConnick
Artist: Filipe Andrade

After an action-loaded start for the Captain Marvel title, Kelly Sue DeConnick changes the pace to present a more intimate story, as she shares a day in the life of Carol Danvers. The dialog is smart and entertaining, full of fun remarks and situations. Cap's supporting cast comes together to show how far the book has come in such a short time, and a new development for Earth's mightiest hero shocks not only her, but also the readers; great plot. The art is surely going to be the polarizing topic in this new phase of the title. The departure of Dexter Soy has left a huge void to fill; his work was not only different, but also very well received. Filipe Andrade takes over the art duties with a stylized technique that is more common in indie books; an acquired taste that might become divisive amongst fans. If Marvel truly feels this is top grade art, then why is it not being showcased in Avengers or Superior Spider-Man?
