Carol Takes (Alpha) Flight in ‘Captain Marvel’ #1 [Review]

capmarvel_featured

Let's be real about something for a second: This is the third Captain Marvel #1 in 3.5 years (fourth if you count Secret Wars: Captain Marvel and the Carol Corps), and that can feel a little tiring. Especially from Marvel Comics, in this current strange period of comics publishing. I love Captain Marvel, and even I felt a little cynical about yet another relaunch.

But at the same time, it was impossible not be excited about a Captain Marvel written by Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters, the showrunners on my favorite Marvel TV show, Agent Carter, and drawn by Kris Anka, who became one of my very favorite superhero artists during his time on Uncanny X-Men.

Sideshow’s Captain Marvel Statue Stands Ready to Save the Galaxy

Carol Danvers is poised to have a big year. Captain Marvel might not be getting a movie in 2016 like so many of her Marvel counterparts, but she's got a great ongoing series and will play a major role in the upcoming Civil War II comic event. While she's had a few action figures over the course of the last year, the Avenger hasn't gotten the high gloss treatment befitting the hero that defends Earth and space. I don't know you if you know this, but space, it's infinite. Takes a special kind of person to say, "We must protect this house!" when that house is as vast and wide as every galaxy in the known universe.

This year, Sideshow is giving the Captain her due with a new premium format figure. She might look a little different than you're used to seeing though. The statue puts her recently tweaked costume through a few more alterations, adding a bit more star flare and giving that sash an interesting new direction. She's still got that bad-ass attitude and some on-point eyeliner though. Seriously, Carol looks more than ready to take on the world, she looks ready to take on the universe. Which, as I said before, is a good thing because the universe is magnificent and cold and needs someone like Captain Marvel to keep it together.

Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions.

If you saw Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, then you, like us, immediately began mentally fan-casting the incredibly kick-ass Rebecca Ferguson in pretty much every upcoming film — in particular, we’d really love to see her join the MCU as Captain Marvel. According to the latest rumor, Marvel really wants that to happen, too.

Cosplayers Take Center Stage on Marvel’s Cosplay Variant Covers this Fall

marvel-cosplay-feat

You know how much we love cosplay at ComicsAlliance; we put a spotlight on it every week. Fans who create their own costumes and dress up as their favorite heroes are some of the most passionate and enthusiastic people in comics, and the level of talent and committment on display at conventions seems to get more impressive every year. If there isn't a Carol Corps cosplay meet-up or a whole dang Spider-Verse at a show, you'll probably go home disappointed.

So it's great to see Marvel paying tribute to these fans with a selection of cosplay variant covers on several of its All-New All-Different launches this fall. The Marvel Cosplay variants place fans of Spider-Gwen, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, Thor (both versions) and more on the covers of the books they love. Cosplay connoisseurs will see some familiar faces among the cosplayers, including Birds of Play's Amanda Lynne Shafer, cosplay legend Yaya Han, and Marvel's own in-house cosplay blogger Judy Stephens as Captain Marvel.

Squad Goals: Meet the Team in Al Ewing and Kenneth Rocafort’s ‘Ultimates’ [Interview]

Ultimates_feat

Of all the books announced by Marvel during this week's big All-New, All-Different unveiling, one of the surprise titles that generated the most buzz was Ultimates, by Al Ewing and Kenneth Rocafort. Though the name echoes back to the Ultimate Universe version of the Avengers, this is a very different team, comprised of some of the Marvel Universe's major powerhouses and most brilliant minds as they tackle cosmic threats on the scale of... well, Galactus.

ComicsAlliance spoke to Ewing to learn about the big idea behind this big team and the sort of threats they'll be facing, and to discover what drew him to put characters like Black Panther, Captain Marvel and America Chavez on one team --- besides the fact that they're all obviously the best characters.

Kris Anka and the ‘Agent Carter’ Showrunners Take Over ‘Captain Marvel’

captain-marvel-feat

Yesterday we learned that Kelly Sue DeConnick will not continue on Captain Marvel when the title returns after Secret Wars --- an unsurprising move given her creator-owned successes and her increasing involvement in movie and TV production through her Milkfed Criminal Masterminds shingle. Today we've learned who'll replace her on the next iteration of Captain Marvel; the writing team of Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas, best known to Marvel fans as the showrunners on the Agent Carter TV show. They're joined by artist Kris Anka, who also worked with the writers on a tweaked costume design for the captain.

Kelly Sue DeConnick Leaves ‘Captain Marvel’, To Fans’ Chagrin!

TRUE BELIEVERS: CAPTAIN MARVEL #1
Marvel

Sad news for those who loved Kelly Sue DeConnick’s Captain Marvel tenure: the end is in sight.

“Captain Marvel” has been a number of people. Only two of them, Carol Danvers and Monica Rambeau, have been women, and only one of those has been blessed with such auspicious circumstances: when Carol Danvers became Captain Marvel, her title benefited from both a new, quite obviously more considered costume, and a woman writing the adventures, with a social media platform that permitted no obstacles. Carol Danvers’ Captain Marvel inspired the Carol Corps: when you’ve got your own highly visible, economically dedicated grassroots fan club, you have arrived.
