Marvel Action: Captain Marvel Debuts in August from IDW Publishing

An All-Out Flerken Invasion Challenges Carol Danvers to Go Higher, Further, and Faster Than Ever!

IDW Publishing is proud to announce the latest addition to their Marvel Action line of comics aimed at middle grade readers: Captain Marvel! From the stellar creative team of writer Sam Maggs (Marvel: Fearless and Fantastic! Female Super Heroes Save the World), artist Sweeney Boo (My Little Pony), and colorist Brittany Peer, the first thrilling chapter hits stores in August!

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!”

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.”

Marvel Action: Captain Marvel will be available with a regular cover by Sweeney Boo, plus a special retailer incentive variant by Brianna Garcia (Disney Princess).
