Captain Marvel #4

Writer: Kelly Sue DeConnick
Artist: Dexter Soy

Dialogue balloons have got to come back to comic book covers on a permanent basis. Nothing against the stylized and posed artwork in today's covers, but there's a je ne sais quoi in Cap's defiant statement that just makes Ed McGuiness' art come to life. Carol Danvers and the Banshee Squad's last stand against the Prowlers widens the enigma behind the time-travel incident that took her to 1943. She is also on her way of becoming quite the paradox after her second time jump. Carol was inspired by the groundbreaking accomplishments of Helen Cobb, but now it looks like Ms. Cobb is about to be influenced by the feats of her new acquittance, and she might not be the only one; Carol could very well be the first and original Captain Marvel. Dexter Soy's lines are more refined and his colors more vivid than first seen in the inaugural issue; proving his higher level of comfort with the character and her situations.

We want more dialogue balloons in covers! Art by Ed McGuiness
