Things are business as usual for Captain Marvel After the events of Civil War II. She's still dealing with some emotional troubles from what took place, while also trying to keep Alpha Flight in the air.

This issue we get to see Captain Marvel have to do whats necessary to continue to get funding for Alpha Flight. A cheesy television show may not be very appealing but with her growing popularity, it seems like a legit solution. Also the unknown bounty hunter moves in on it's prey and brings Captain Marvel head to head with them.

I liked this issue but I didn't love it like I did the last one. There was some magic about the last issue that seemed to be missing in this one. I really liked how Carol was struggling with her emotional distress from Civil War II, but there was none of that in this issue except for one comment about most of her friends either being dead or not talking to her. She seems to be all business now, but in an odd way it works for me.

I think the biggest thing for me with this issue was it was pretty average overall. There wasn't any major struggle for Carol other than typical things. The television show was funny and seeing her get her back up over it and the over sexualized nature of her character was awesome. Especially since when Carol was Ms Marvel her design was very sexualized.

The art in this issue was also just average. I really enjoyed the cartoonish look of the last issue and drama that Emilo Laiso brought to it. With just having Ramon Rosanas on the art it's still good, but it is missing what really drew me into the look and style of the first issue.

This is still a good read and I recommend picking it up. Hopefully in the next few issue the magic will return and this will continue to be a solid series.
