Marvel Announces Captain Marvel Relaunch with Adam Hughes Cover
Adam Hughes does an impressive cover for a relaunched first issue of Captain Marvel.
The relaunched book will be written by Kelly Thompson with art by Carmen Carnero. Thompson describes her run as follows:
You really want her to be accessible to new and younger audiences who are going to see the movie, fall in love and want to seek out other Captain Marvel stories. But you really want to respect the fans who have loved the character for decades. I think there’s a razor’s edge there.
You can find the official description for Captain Marvel #1 below.
ALL THE STARS ALIGN AS KELLY THOMPSON AND CARMEN CARNERO TAKE ON MARVEL’S PREMIER FEMALE SUPER HERO! As Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers has spent months in space protecting Earth from alien threats big and small, but now it’s time for Earth’s mightiest hero to come home. New York City has never looked so good. But every re-entry comes with the unexpected, and Carol is about to hit a whole lot of unexpected. It’s a fresh start and an oversized, star-studded welcome home for a hero who’s been punching the glass ceiling since the 1970s — and just in time for the first female-led film from Marvel Studios! The next 50 years of Captain Marvel starts here!”
