Earlier this month Marvel announced the upcoming five-issue miniseries The Life of Captain Marvel from Margaret Stohl and Carlos Pacheco, and now we have a look at Joe Quesada’s variant cover for the first issue…
“Writing Life of Captain Marvel has already been an extraordinary experience, one of those rare times in a writer’s life when the fictional universe you inhabit seems more real than anything else,” said Margaret Stohl. “I’m so grateful to Sana Amanat and Joe Quesada for helping shape it; they are both just huge blazing talents in the writers room. It’s a deeply personal origin story, a family story, an emotional story — somehow both very big, and very small — and the way Carlos draws it has changed the way I think about comics. He breathes as much life into her as any words ever could, probably more. Life and all the things that means to Carol at the moment — regret and resolve and hope.”
“I always knew Joe was an incredible artistic talent, but Life has shown me a new side of him as a creator,” added Stohl. “We truly have joint custody over Carol’s origin story here, and I am so grateful to share her and this journey with him. He has taught me so much about visual storytelling, and heart.”
The Life of Captain Marvel #1 will go on sale on July 4th.
