NYCC 2019: Captain Marvel’s Star Gets a Miniseries from Kelly Thompson this January

Star, an exciting addition to Marvel Comics’ legendary lineup of super heroes, will have her very own limited series this January. Announced at the NYCC Retailer Panel, the breakout character from the pages of Captain Marvel will be starring in her own adventure, written by current Captain Marvel scribe and Star’s creator, Kelly Thompson! Star had her first appearance this past July in Captain Marvel #8 and the mystery surrounding her identity combined with a stunning character design from artist Carmen Carnero had readers clamoring to learn more about who she was!

Ambitious reporter Ripley Ryan was one of the victims caught up in Nuclear Man’s apocalyptic schemes and later became the hero STAR, adored by everyone. But in truth she was Dr. Minerva’s attempt at a Kree-human Super-Soldier. Desperate for the power and strength to control her own destiny, she tried to kill Captain Marvel — and failed. Ripley was left, defeated and powerless, in the Raft. But something strange has happened, and Star now finds herself more powerful than ever before. And no one in the Marvel Universe is prepared for what it means.

Star #1 (of 5) is out this January from writer Kelly Thompson and an artist to be named later. The main cover is from Carmen Carnero and a variant by Jeehyung Lee.
