Captain Marvel, Volume 1: Higher, Further, Faster, More

This is yet another graphic novel that I picked up off of Amazon Prime on an impulse. I saw Avengers Infinity War not too long ago. I had heard that the next Avengers movie will feature Captain Marvel and early next year she will get her own movie so I wanted to learn more about her. I remember the Male Captain Marvel from the seventies but this is a whole new character.

 

Captain Marvel, Volume 1 is written by Kelly Sue DeConnick with art by David Lopez. This book includes issues 1 through 6 of the comic series and one self contained story. The tale begins with Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) finding an alien trapped in a capsule heading to earth. She saves the alien and then returns him to it's home world. 

 

 Once she arrives Captain Marvel discovers that the alien's planet is in danger and in conflict with the Galactic Alliance and the Spartax. She decides to stay and help the alien race but this will set off a chain of events that could alter all of the Marvel Universe and put her at odds with The Avengers. This book also includes appearances from The Guardians Of The Galaxy and Iron Man.

 

My main complaint about this book was that since I didn't know much about this character I was wanting a little orgin story but I didn't get it. Even though it started with a first issue it felt like I was starting a story in the middle. I realize that this is how the Marvel comics universe works, everything is connected and if you don't know anything about the universe you may be a little lost but I still would have liked a better starting point.

 

This is an entertaining book though.The characters were interesting,  the art was decent, the story was ok but nothing extraordinary. The book held my interest but wasn't as good as The Totally Awesome Hulk which I read not too long ago. There was a lot of potential in this book though, I would read more if I got the chance and I'm now looking forward to the upcoming movie.

Another fun issue!
I Hate Fairyland #10 - Skottie Young,Skottie Young,Jean-Francois Beaulieu

Love, love love.   Gert has to pick a door - one will take her to her dreams.  The other will destroy fairyland. 

 

This is Gert.   One hundred years in the future, on the eve of fairyland's destruction, Gert has to go back to the past, and tell her younger self what to do to avoid this. 

 

Gert totally doesn't have ADD, so this will all work out!

 

Another funny issue.

Gert loses a bet
I Hate Fairyland #9 - Skottie Young,Skottie Young,Jean-Francois Beaulieu

When a dark wizard demands an extinct creature - one that her worm-friend, Larry - can't find immediately, Gert has to go into his hat and get it herself.   If only she hadn't kidnapped and then promptly forgotten a string of people. 

 

If only she didn't have to go through them to get her Catastrophon.   

 

Of course, she has to fight the Lynt first since Larry doesn't clean up his damn hat.  

 

Yeah, if she survives the Lynt and gets through the group of people who despise her, then maybe she can save her life.

So much fun
I Hate Fairyland #8 - Skottie Young,Skottie Young,Jean-Francois Beaulieu

Gert has to live-play through a video game to try and find a way home.   She bets her dragon - aka a boy dressed up as a dragon - while she beats her way through way too many fatalities. 

 

But can she beat the boss, Purty Pretty Princess?
