Official Press Release
|Alternate cover to “Captain Marvel #1” by artist Joe Jusko|
Hey, True Believer!
Since everyone is buzzing about the consequences of our whole U-DECIDE!
event — the pie-throwing, the dunk-tanking, the trash-talking, etc. — I
thought you’d actually appreciate a look at, you know, the actual comic
So, in the first of a series of peeks at the books that are going
head-to-head in a loser-leave-town, no-holds-barred cage match, here’s two
interior pages from CAPTAIN MARVEL #1 (on sale Sept. 18th — order cut-off
date Aug. 29th), which feature a whole new coloring technique that Sr.
Editor Tom Brevoort is about to tell you all about. Take it away, Tom!
“For the new, relaunched CAPTAIN MARVEL series, in addition to
re-evaluating the series direction and story content, we’ve also taken a
look at the way we’ve been approaching the artwork, and adjusted
accordingly. So here are two preview images from CAPTAIN MARVEL #1,
showing off the new, more ‘painterly’ look the book will take on. Pencils
continue to be provided by ChrisCross, with the fully-painted artwork
executed by Chris Sotomayor.”
But wait, Tom has one more thing to say!
“I also want to point out to everybody that if CAPTAIN MARVEL loses to
either MARVILLE or ULTIMATE ADVENTURES, I’m never going to hear the end of
it from Bill Jemas and Joe Quesada. And that would depress me — so much
so that I might not be able to get up the energy to keep things moving on
the AVENGERS/JLA crossover. So if you’re one of the many people who’ve
been waiting breathlessly for that dream project, it might not be the
worst thing in the world for you to check out a copy of CAPTAIN MARVEL
Wow… now that’s playing dirty, Tom. I like it!
