Marvel Action: Captain Marvel #1

Jump back into the action with Carol Danvers, the strongest Avenger, in a brand-new Marvel Action: Captain Marvel series, the latest high-flying adventure in IDW Publishing’s line of comics for middle-grade readers!

Following the critical success of IDW’s prior Marvel Action: Captain Marvel series, writer Sam Maggs returns to helm the 2021 title, launching in January. The first two-part story will feature art by talented newcomer Isabel Escalante, with issues #3-5 illustrated by returning artist extraordinaire, Sweeney Boo.

In the first story arc, Carol Danvers is trying her best to enjoy some well-deserved downtime in New York City — but when Gwen Stacy, a.k.a. Ghost-Spider, introduces her to the ClikClok app, things quickly spiral out of control!

Marvel Action: Captain Marvel and the writer/artist team of Sam Maggs and Sweeney Boo were recently nominated for the prestigious Dragon Award, a Joe Shuster-associated award presented by the Canadian Comic Book Awards Association, recognizing works which capture the attention and fascination of young readers and help to create a passion for life-long reading. Winners will be announced in late October.

Marvel Action: Captain Marvel #1 will feature two cover editions for fans to enjoy: Cover A by Sweeney Boo and a Retailer Incentive edition by Gretel Lusky.

DC Releases an Early Look at the New Superhero Primer

Primer

Written by Jennifer Muro and Thomas Krajewski
Illustrated and colored by Gretel Lusky 
Lettered by Wes Abbott
On sale 6/23/2020
MSRP: $9.99

Primer introduces a brand-new superhero with a colorful array of superpowers to explore.

Ashley Rayburn is an upbeat girl with a decidedly downbeat past. Her father is a known criminal who once used Ashley to help him elude justice, and in his attempt to escape, a life was taken. He now sits in federal prison, but still casts a shadow over Ashley’s life. In the meantime, Ashley has bounced from foster home to foster home and represents a real challenge to the social workers who try to help her–not because she’s inherently bad, but because trouble always seems to find her. 

Ashley’s latest set of presumably short-term foster parents are Kitch and Yuka Nolan. Like Ashley, Kitch happens to be an artist. Yuka, on the other hand, is a geneticist working for a very high-level tech company, one that’s contracted out to work for the government and the military. And it’s Yuka’s latest top secret project that has her very concerned. Developed for the military, it’s a set of body paints that, when applied to the wearer, grant them a wide range of special powers. Fearful that this invention will be misused, Yuka sneaks the set of paints home, substituting a dummy suitcase with an ordinary set of paints in their place.

From here, signals get crossed. Ashley comes home from school one day with her new friend Luke and, thinking that the Nolans have purchased a surprise gift for her upcoming birthday, finds the set of paints. Being an artist, Ashley naturally assumes these are for her. It isn’t long before she realizes that she’s stumbled upon something much bigger and a lot more dangerous. Although she uses her newly discovered powers for good, it’s not long before the military becomes wise to what happened to their secret weapon. And this spells big trouble not only for Ashley, but for her newfound family and friends as well.

ALA 2019: DC Reveals a Massive Slate of Graphic Novels Geared Towards Young Adults and Middle Grade Readers Releasing Through 2021

The 2019 convention for the American Library Association (ALA) kicked off with huge news that DC was consolidating its line under three “brands.” That left many to wonder about the future of the DC Zoom and DC Ink graphic novel lines. Launched last year, the new graphic novel imprints were focused on the young adult and middle grade readers and have been hits so far. DC followed up those concerns with an announcement of a slate of graphic novel releases aimed at those young adult and middle grade readers.

These graphic novels continue the focus on stories not part of DC’s ongoing continuity making them accessible to new fans.
