I really find Kelly-Sue DeConnick’s ambition laudable, most creators who launch a book go for something fairly simple with the opening arc in order to introduce the status quo, but not DeConnick, she just jumps headfirst into a rather complex time-travel story arc which has now seen Carol Danvers go from the present day, to WW2 and now to 1961. It’s a bit of a headfuck, but it’s very interesting (and informative, I’ve actually learned stuff about women pilots) and she’s also managing to good character work with Captain Marvel at the same time. I feel like even though I’ve been reading about Carol as a member of the Avengers since I was about 11, this is the first time I’ve really gotten to know about who she is as a person in any great detail. I also find the character of Helen Cobb to be pretty intriguing, in #1 she was set up as a heroic inspiration for Carol, but the 1960s scenes in this issue seem to show a darker side of her, hmmmm.

I'm liking the series so far, but am getting a little bit of a "I am woman, hear me roar" kinda vibe.
