I’ve been mildly obsessed with the Captain Marvel comics recently and in anticipation of the movie release I thought I might share my excitement with all of you! There are a couple of different Captain Marvel series that we have available here at the Free Library, plus a ton of Carol Danvers appearances in other storylines. Here are some great places to start!
