Onward with the Revenge of the Brood in Captain Marvel #45. Though, is anyone else wondering what precisely they’re getting revenge on? After all, they’re supposedly in a moment of peace. Granted, we all knew that wasn’t going to last.

I mentioned a bit of dissonance in the last issue due to a sudden jump. That (intentionally) continues here, though it isn’t long before the characters catch up. I’ll admit that it was satisfying to see. More importantly, Carol has a very human reaction to what happened, and I think I love her even more for it. I certainly love Kelly Thompson more for including this moment.

Captain Marvel #45 is full of action. Again, Brood. It’s going to happen. Despite all of this action, it feels like we’re being set up for something even bigger. That probably means there will be a lot more action (and danger) on the horizon.

The artistic team did an excellent job of bringing the events of this issue to life. Sergio Davila (pencils), Sean Parsons (ink), Arif Prianto (colors), Yen Nitro (colors), and VC’s Clayton Cowles (letters) were all involved in this project, and I love it. For me, the highlight would have to be either all the fighting or the slightly manic expressions of some of our favorite characters. Not that I blame them, given the situation.
