IDW Announces New Marvel Action Title: Captain Marvel

IDW Publishing announced a brand new Marvel Action comic title, Captain Marvel.

The book will be written by Sam Maggs with artwork by Sweeney Boo and colors by Brittany Peer.

Here’s the official synopsis:

“Carol Danvers’ quiet night with BFF Jessica Drew (Spider-Woman) takes a catastrophic turn when Manhattan’s bodegas are suddenly overrun by a host of angry felines! And not just any felines—Flerkens, the most terrifying, pocket-dimension-holding, tentacle-devouring kitty-look-alikes in the entire universe! Can Captain Marvel overcome the formidable foes before it’s too late?”


“I feel so privileged to help launch Captain Marvel’s solo title for Marvel Action,” says 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!”

Maggs also noted the book will have lots of cats.

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!”

“Working with Sam and Sweeney on a story featuring one of the most iconic super heroes of our time has been a dream,” says Megan Brown, assistant editor. “I adore Carol — she’s strong, capable, funny, and someone that anyone can look up to. In Marvel Action, we’re also highlighting the strength of her friendship with Jessica Drew, and it’s been such a positive, uplifting experience bringing this rock-solid bond between two absolutely amazing ladies to life.”

The book will have two different covers. The main cover will be done by Sweeney Boo with a retailer incentive variant by Brianna Garcia.

The book joins other Marvel Action titles that include Avengers, Black Panther, and Spider-Man.

IDW’s Marvel Action: Captain Marvel will hit comic book shelves in August.
