Sunday Post

The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. ~ Inspired by the meme In My Mailbox.~ It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Happy Sunday everyone! Yesterday was Independence Day here in the US, so most of us got a long weekend. I had my first two day weekend since I opened the store and it was needed. I listened to a few audiobooks and played a lot of video games this past week…which basically cut down on all productivity.

Captain Marvel’s space adventure with her pet cat, Chewie, continues! But when they have an unexpected alien visitor, Carol learns that Rocket Raccoon was right: There’s more to Chewie than meets the eye! Chewie is a Flerkin…and a mom to hundreds! Is this the end for Carol and her pet? Then, Carol has her hands full with a special guest-star from the X-Universe: rock and roll maven Lila Cheney! And Christmas comes to the Carol Corps as we celebrate 100 issues and nearly 50 years of Carol Danvers’ high-flying adventures!

But after tracking Captain Marvel and Tic for weeks, the Haffensye Consortium has finally caught up to them both! Carol was barely able to survive the last time she squared off against the Haffensye — will the astronomical Avenger be so lucky again?

Collecting Captain Marvel (2014) issues #7 to #11.

Captain Marvel is one of my favorite superheroes, mostly because of her personality. She’s tough, likes to punch things, and has an awesome sense of humor. However I find myself sort of stalling out on this series and the overall story.

The first volume was full of awesome promises like show offs with J’son in order to protect people on planets he’s interested in, and space battles. But I feel like it really slowed down in favor of more silly fun…and while that’s great, it’s also a bit boring. Carol is still amazing through out all of it, and I liked her sarcastic wit and ill placed goofiness…but I also feel like her badass talents were a bit squandered. I liked having the Guardians of Galaxy involved and it really made it more entertaining, and despite the goofiness of the whole storyline Chewbacca the “Cat” (*cough* Flerkin *cough*) was pretty funny and having Rocket constantly tinkered with Carol’s ship as fun.

In most ways this series is more of an exploration of her character and personality, and not so much of space itself.

I enjoyed it, but I think I’m with the others when I say I’m ready for her to head back to Earth for a bit.

3 star
