Captain Marvel will join IDW Publishing’s Marvel Action line in August. The line of comics is aimed at middle grade readers and already includes comics starring the Avengers, Black Panther and Spider-Man.
The comic will feature Captain Marvel, Spider-Woman and the Flerkens, the race of aliens who look like cats but are so much more.
“I feel so privileged to help launch Captain Marvel’s solo title for Marvel Action,” said writer Sam Maggs. “Carol has always been my favorite super hero; I love how she’s truly come into her own, culturally, and is finally being widely-recognized as the star that she is. Being able to write for Carol is the most exciting and terrifying thing that’s ever happened to me. I can’t wait to share this arc with everyone!”
The writer, who also works at Insomniac Games, posted about her new project on Twitter:
She’s joined by artist Sweeney Boo, whose real name is Cécilia Dupuy. Her graphic novel Eat and Love Yourself was successful on Kickstarter in 2016, and will be released by BOOM! Studios next year.
Sweeney Boo says, “This comic is for everyone! If you have seen Captain Marvel’s movie and want more of her, and if you are a cat lover, this is definitely for you. This title has everything – it’s funny and sweet, it has powerful moments, and it’s absolute cat madness!”
Brittany Peer, who has done work for IDW, Oni Press and BOOM! Studios in the past, will provide colors.
