    I have mixed feelings from this. On one hand, comics was created almost 50 years ago and this is clearly visible from lot of pathos, deus ex machina, unnecessary explaining, plot defying comments, dumb villains and WTF script. Some parts were really boring and I almost threw book away. But then I started to read this as a parody, which worked much better. On the other hand, art is very nice, together with crazy coloring it have that interesting retro feeling. Work with panels is great and some o I have mixed feelings from this.

On the other hand, art is very nice, together with crazy coloring it have that interesting retro feeling. Work with panels is great and some of them have decorative touch which breaks boring regular black frames. I would say that visually it would easily beat many modern comics. Also it presents many interesting thoughts about war, motivation to fight and facing the inner demons. Thanos have some funny moments too. To sum it up, it wasn't so bad at the end, and it hooked me up enough to read also second part. But when this is one of the best works of the era, I don't wan't to see the rest:)

    My first captain marvel comic, and it was surprisingly very good. Great story, great writing, great art. 8/10

    More from Marvel’s dim and distant past. As with so many of these volumes, what really hits in this collection is the lack of a sense of scale overall. There’s no time to breathe or cultivate a sense of wonder, we’re on to the next fight or encounter as soon as the last one’s finished. For all the characters are off to a moon of Saturn or another plane of existence they might as well be popping next door.

As with so many of these volumes, what really hits in this collection is the lack of a sense of scale overall. There’s no time to breathe or cultivate a sense of wonder, we’re on to the next fight or encounter as soon as the last one’s finished. For all the characters are off to a moon of Saturn or another plane of existence they might as well be popping next door. In particular it’s amusing to see Thanos, subsequently a villain of universe shattering ambition and mythical status, as a near ordinary supervillain here - he uses human pawns, skulks in a mundane Earth base and his ambition is limited to conquering his own homeworld. This is the Marvel universe before writers who’d grown up as fans began to dominate, before it began to feed on its own legends and the heroes and villains turned into monolithic legends. It’s tough to judge this volume on its own merits, with the accompanying Death of Captain Marvel appearing in a future book. It’s entertaining enough, but ultimately it’s only half a story. As I’ve never read the full story I can’t call it a satisfying story in its own right as yet,

    At times this volume is quite dated, the speech patterns, the layout of the art, even the art at times, it is difficult for bodies of work to stand the test of time. This volume somehow managed both to be dated and still relevant, the first few are very clunky with lots of dialogue. But as the issues move along you can see the heart of the story and characters here and that without these stories we wouldn't have modern comics as they are.

I've never read much captain marvel except when he's appeared in other titles I'd read, I wouldn't say I'm a fan yet but once Starlin takes over on writing duties the story moves quicker and is more enjoyable. It's probably not a character that I'd want to read more of, yet I am still looking forward to the next volume as the death of captain marvel had very big repercussions on the marvel universe and how stories were written. If Starlin had been the primary writer throughout this volume may have been more enjoyable.

    Don't know Captain Marvel too well, I knew his back story and all of that, but never really read him, this was sold as a turning point in his history and I found it a pretty damn good read. Although I am awaiting part too, where it will be more on his death with morbid interest. But if you've never read a Captain Marvel title and you want a Hell load of sci-fi thrown into your superhero action then this is the man to look towards. Great stuff.
