Review: Captain Marvel Vol. 3

Captain Marvel Vol. 3: Alis Volat Propriis - Kelly Sue DeConnick, David López

I would have enjoyed this a lot more if I'd only read the last issue. This includes a multi-issue arc that seems to only exist to mention Tony Stark over and over, followed by an issue that is part of a different comic's arc, and finishing with what would have been a big emotional hit if it hadn't spent most of the volume erasing my interest in this character.




This volume is a near perfect encapsulation of why I'm hesitant to pick up any Marvel book.
