NY Comic Con Report

So I just got back from the NY Comic Con at the Javits Center this weekend.

It was a good one for the Captain Marvel Culture project. I have just produced a new abridged edition of Captain Marvel Culture, outlining the history of the many different Captain Marvels. I was able to sell a bunch of copies of the booklet, along with some copies of my Watch This Space magazine, which includes a chapter from the book about how the McCarthyist anti-Communist witch hunts of the 1950's were reflected in the Kree-Skrull War, the Civil War, and the Legends miniseries.

I was also able to meet with and get on camera Jim Starlin, Lee Weeks, Len Wein, and Gary Frederich talking about their particular parts of Captain Marvel history. I hope to have some of that footage up soon.

The new Captain Marvel...Boy!

So it seems that with the departure of Khn'nr, Marvel needs a new character to carry its trademark. So now Norman Osborn, hero of the Secret Invasion, having been given leadership of the Avengers, has recruited Noh-Varr (the most recent Marvel Boy) to be Captain Marvel on his new incarnation of the team.

Wonder if he'll get his own series?
