Media Release — This July, Margaret Stohl and Carlos Pacheco will come together to bring Carol Danvers a new story in THE LIFE OF CAPTAIN MARVEL #1 – and today, Marvel is excited reveal a new variant cover by our own Joe Quesada.
“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.”
