4.0 out of 5 stars assemble
Well written and drawn and continues to go from strength to strength following the first two volumes of Captain marvel. Does not include the infinity tie in issues. Captain Marvel faces off against past enemies as an old enemy returns. If you liked the previous volumes of Captain Marvel then you should pick this up. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good story, meh art
Story is everything you would expect from Kelly Sue DeConnick but some of the artwork, particularly the Hepburn stuff, looks rushed and sloppy. Some of the facial expressions look downright weird and the long shots are clunky too. It's a decent payoff for what has been building up in the two previous Captain Marvel TPs, and is a good set up for what is to come next and...

5.0 out of 5 stars Captain Marvel volume 3, 20 Feb. 2014

This review is from: Avengers: The Enemy Within (Marvel Now) (Avengers (Marvel Unnumbered)) (Paperback)
The story running through `Avengers: The Enemy Within' #1, Avengers Assemble #16 & #17 and Captain Marvel #13 & #14 are collected, along with Captain Marvel #17, as Avengers: The Enemy Within (Marvel Now) (Avengers (Marvel Unnumbered)). This is the climax of the story running through Captain Marvel's own series - see Captain Marvel - Volume 2: Down (Marvel Now) for the lead-in. I notice that there is no volume 3 of Captain Marvel announced yet - have they cancelled it and tied up the story in an Avengers title? (This being the fate of many Captains Marvel in the past.) Anyway, this story has its roots in the origin of Ms/Captain Marvel when the Psyche-Magnitron device exploded, apparently killing Colonel Yon-Rogg and giving Carol Danvers her powers. Now he's managed to reincorporate himself, but with the powers of the machine itself, and is out to turn the Earth into a Kree colony world. Captain Marvel is currently grounded for medical reasons - to do with her Kree-based powers etc. etc. - and Yon-Rogg is playing mind games with her that have escalated to involve the Avengers and a fleet of Kree Sentries that are out to remodel New York.

If you have been reading Captain Marvel's own book, then you will find that this is an extension of the ongoing story from there, despite it running through the Uncanny Avengers, as the same writer is in charge of all the issues, and that Carol's supporting cast are all present for this story - it is not an Avengers story that has sucked her out of her own continuity, but the reverse, as the Avengers are sucked into her battle with Yon-Rogg. The escalation of Yon-Rogg's attacks takes it into Avengers territory, however, so Avengers readers won't feel cheated either. In fact, it reminds me of the `good old days', when Avengers stories, and in fact, Avengers teams, were deeply involved with their members own personal storylines. Issue #17 is there to show Carol in recovery from the effects of the final showdown with Yon-Rogg, and to explain her situation in the later Avengers stories. Again, I assume there won't be a third volume of her own title to explain what went on, so it has to be tied up here for continuity freaks and casual readers to be able to follow events.

Anyway, this is an excellent Avengers story that just happens to have a lot of personal/character-based stuff going on, just like in the good old days. There are big Earth-shaking battles (did I mention the Sentry fleet) as well as little old ladies going missing and being held prisoner by dinosaurs in Central Park. Hmmm, you are right, I should up it to a 5-star rating.

I love Kelly Sue Deconnick's writing and I thoroughly enjoyed this volume, which also completed my Captain Marvel Vol.1 collection. Brilliant, loved it. Get it!
