Marvel announced several new titles at their Spider-Man panel on Sunday, but the most buzzed-about book is actually a relaunch – Captain Marvel will be getting a new volume next year, with writer Kelly Sue DeConnick remaining onboard but the absolutely fantastic David Lopez being announced as the new artist on the book.
Many elements from the current run will return in this relaunch, including the recurring supporting cast and the militaristic aspects of Carol Danvers’ life. At the same time, DeConnick promises that the current run will change the character’s mindset substantially, which leads her into a new role she’ll be playing in once the new #1 rolls in.
The series had been teased with the word ‘higher’, which is now explained to be a literal thing – the character is going to push herself harder, but also head off into space to go off on some cosmic adventures. You can find more in her interview with Brett White on Marvel.com.
