“Captain Marvel” fans may have a reason to rejoice — Carol Danvers steward Kelly Sue DeConnick and artist David Lopez are the subject of the second teaser today from Marvel Comics, teasing a “Higher” new #1 issue from the creative team via Marvel.com.
Although a new renumbering of “Captain Marvel” in the same vein as faux renumbering of “Avengers” #24.NOW as “Avengers” #1 in All-New Marvel NOW! is likely, a brand new series by DeConnick and Lopez isn’t out of the question. However, considering DeConnick’s comments in August about “Captain Marvel’s” future, despite its absence on the November solicitations and December solicitations, it’s likely that the “Higher” teased book is part of bringing back Carol Danvers in some form.
“Exciting news coming, but I don’t want to step on any Marvel toes by speaking out of turn,” DeConnick said via Tumblr. “Until official word is out, Carol Corps — stay tuned, have faith. It’s all good. I’ve never lied to you before, have I?”
That said, the teaser is for the Superior Spider-Man and Friends panel at this year’s New York Comic Con — so, it could be something completely different. Full details will likely be revealed at Marvel’s Superior Spider-Man and Friends panel at New York Comic Con on October 13 at 4:00 PM ET.
