Soar Around The Globe With ‘The Mighty Captain Marvel’ #1 [Preview]
Civil War II is over (or at least the new series launches are pretending it is), and Captain Marvel will have to wrestle with her role in things, and how much the public loves her for it, in The Mighty Captain Marvel #1, a new ongoing series written by novelist Margaret Stohl, with art by Ramon Rosanas.
This unlettered preview is lovely, but doesn't gives us too much insight into what goes on in the book. The first two pages of Carol visiting landmarks around the globe works great with no words, although I'm guessing there will be some captions portraying her inner monologue. Then we see her responding to a crisis in a refugee camp full of green space aliens, which really drives home the ways in which the Marvel Universe is like and unlike our own world.
The Mighty Captain Marvel #1 comes out January 18, and features variant covers by Paulo Siqueira, Alex Ross, and Skottie Young.
Here's the official word from Marvel:
