Book Review: Captain Marvel: Stay Fly by K. S. DeConnick et al.

Captain Marvel: Stay Fly written by Kelly Sue DeConnick, art by Marcio Takara and David Lopez

Captain Marvel (a.k.a. Carol Danvers) continues here previous space adventures (see here) with Rocket Raccoon (who claims he's not a raccoon) and her cat Chewie. Rocket claims Chewie is not a cat but a Flerken. Flerken are extremely valuable alien cat-like creatures and lay eggs. Rocket's been shopping around and an alien space craft latches onto their ship in hopes of taking Chewie and the cargo hold full of eggs (turns out Chewie is a Flerken).

Once that situation is solved, an intergalactic pop-star shows up and asks Captain Marvel to help break an arranged marriage to a prince. Later, Carol returns to Earth to thwart an enemy whose trying to destroy everything Carol loves.

The stories are a mixed bag. All of them are fun but some are more engaging than others. The last story has some glaring inconsistencies in the narrative. I found it too distracting to enjoy the story. The art is good throughout the book.

Overall, a fairly average set of superhero adventures.
