From comics to film, it looks like Captain Marvel will have a very good 2019. While Brie Larson will bring Carol Danvers to the big screen in Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame, the cosmic Marvel hero will also kick off the year with a new volume of her eponymous series, Captain Marvel.
To celebrate the relaunch, Stanley "Artgerm" Lau has created a pair of jaw-dropping variant covers for Captain Marvel #1, which also mark the debut of his Artgerm Collectibles brand.
It’s my pleasure to share with you this set of new covers for Captain Marvel. This is my very first Artgerm branded variant cover under Artgerm Collectibles. Preorder info will come soon and hope you like it! More cool covers coming! :) pic.twitter.com/GnHUJBVQ2t— Stanley Artgerm™ Lau (@Artgerm) December 13, 2018
On his Twitter, the Singapore-based digital painter shared a first look at these exclusive covers, which depict Captain Marvel standing against a cosmic backdrop in his immensely popular style. On both covers, Danvers wears her iconic modern costume, which combines aspects of her historical looks and her predecessor's costume for a sleek modern suit.
While the first cover shows Captain Marvel in her usual maskless look, the second cover depicts the hero in her masked Binary form, where her powers emerge in a fiery Super Saiyan-like burst of crackling cosmic energy. As Lau notes, the covers will be available exclusively on his website starting Dec. 16.
In Kelly Thompson and Carmen Carnero's upcoming run on Captain Marvel, the Avenger will be coming back down to Earth after an extended period in space. The series is also set to mark the return of Captain Marvel's traditional supporting cast, including her best friend, Jessica Drew's Spider-Woman, and Tony Stark.
Captain Marvel #1, by Kelly Thompson and Carmen Carnero, is set be released on Jan. 9, 2019 from Marvel Comics.
