by Olly MacNamee
Having already published one Captian Marvel Middle-Graders comic book series, IDW will be putting a further series by writer Sam Maggs, Isabel Escalante (the first tow issues), with issues #3-5 illustrated by returning artist extraordinaire, Sweeney Boo. And, the firsts tory-arc features Spider-Gwen too! Well, you portably world that one out from the cover reveal above. But, let’s not forget who the real star is here, as we are reminded by all three creators involved:
“Writing for Carol — who always has been and always will be my favorite Super Hero — has been a career highlight, and I’m so thrilled to continue her story with the amazing team at IDW. Carol is powerful, self-assured, and independent, but there’s still so much she can learn about playing well with others. One of my favorite things about writing Carol’s Marvel Action adventures has been delving into her relationships with other heroines, and we’ll be continuing that theme in this new series!” – Sam Maggs
“Working for the first time in the comic world feels like a huge challenge, mainly because it’s a Captain Marvel story, and she’s such a powerful, well-loved character. I’m happy, nervous, and excited!” – Isabel Escalante.
“Illustrating Captain Marvel is a dream come true,” says Boo. “Carol Danvers is such an inspiring and strong character. She is determined, brave, and confident… which I am not, so I can live vicariously through her! She has a special place in my heart and was the very first Super Hero I got to draw professionally. I can’t imagine letting her go!” -Sweeney Boo.
Look out for Marvel Action: Carol Danvers soaring into stores this January 2021 from IDW.
