    A New Spin on an Old Classic 0

    I absolutely loved this comic and I cant wait to read more. This comic has the feel of the old Fawcett comics but feels a little fresher. This is a Captain Marvel comic for a post Watchmen world. I can tell that the direction for this about character, fun, and allowing change which the old comics never really seemed to allow. I also love that it brought back Beautia Sivana it seems like now a days they have forgotten about her. I also loved how it had Ibac and the one time villain the Arson Fien...
