Captain Marvel: Cosmic CAT-tastrophe
Captain Marvel and Spider-Woman are enjoying a quiet night in—complete with popcorn and a movie—when breaking news leaks a story about cats swarming markets all over town. When Captain Marvel realizes that the cats may be Flerkens, the most dangerous beings in all the universe, she leaves her cozy living room and checks it out. While trying to make friends with the dangerous animals, she ends up in a pocket dimension where the Flerkens seem to be taking over the galaxy, with a little help from her longtime enemies. Saving the Flerkens and ending their imprisonment turns out more complicated than she expected, but unexpected assistance from a few friends saves her from a cat-astrophe.
The artwork in this short comic is stunning: full color, edge-to-edge graphics liven up a story about one of our newest heroes. The numerous text boxes edge more toward a comic book than a graphic novel and give readers inside information from Captain Marvel’s perspective. Her puns are dad-worthy and throughout the book, leaving readers chuckling (or groaning) often. The arrival of some favorite heroes is icing on the cake. Themes of friendship, cooperation, and humor will leave young readers purring in enjoyment.
