The ups and downs of Big Two books. It takes me a few issues to get the hang of the artist (only for the artist to switch with the next arc…).
I really liked Captain Marvel #4, due in large part to the introduction of Ja Kyee (“Jackie”) Lrurt and her candid, fluid personality. In the character’s first scene, David Lopez (artist) does a fantastic job of keeping the woman in constant motion — she’s athletic, she’s bright, and she has prehensile hair. But the best part about this interaction is the small stuff, as when she takes off her right glove to shake hands with Danvers in consecutive panels. Nice, easy, and fluid.

That hair handshake is all David—not in the script. I looooove it.
Maybe it wasn’t written in the script, but it was in the spirit of the script.
