There’s no question that 2019 is shaping up to be the year of Captain Marvel, with the release of her standalone film, but now also thanks to a relaunched series as well.

The new series, rom the creative duo of Kelly Thompson and Carmen Carnero comes a brand new story in the life of Carol Danvers. The story starts where we find her having spent the last few months in space, protecting Earth from alien threats. Now it’s time to return to the planet, specifically New York City. It’s a fresh start, but she won’t be able to kick her feet up for long. Mahkizmo, has taken over Roosevelt Island, turning it into a wasteland and cutting it off from the rest of the world. Danvers will soon have to organize the likes of Spider-Woman, Echo, Hazmat and some guy named, Som, to help free the island’s civilians.

Keep an eye out for Captain Marvel #1, which lands on shelves and digital on January 2, 2019, but also for the awesome Adam Hughes variant (below). The second issue, which will highlight the assembled team, goes on sale in February.
