For those of you who are unaware Carol made her debut as Captain Marvel in Avenging Spider-man #9 yesterday (even though Avenging Spider-man #9 has been confirmed to take place after Captain Marvel #1 which is released next week. Did something go wrong with the printing schedule or was this meant to happen?).
I had two major concerns when I heard about the new series number 1 was the preview/concept art for Carol's new look (I still think its a shame they just didn't do another Ms Marvel solo series but that's for another topic) but Dodson basically blew all the worries I had out of the water with his awesome art:
The other thing wasn't so much a concern as it was curiosity and that was how DeConnick would handle writing Carol (DeConnick came on board for Avenging Spider-man 9 and 10). I was pleasantly surprised with what I got. DeConnick wrote Carol very well keeping her true to character. The dialogue between her and Spider-man was also pretty good in my opinion:
I have to say the thing that clinched it for me was this page!:
All in all I think DeConnick is going to do a great job on Captain Marvel (*sigh* looks like another title to add to my pull list). I just wish Dodson would do the art on that series because he can really draw Carol's new look well! DeConnick also handled Spider-man very well which was a nice surprise. She said she enjoyed writing the web-head and it showed!
