• Who is the sinister figure behind these incursions and what does it have to do with Carol Danvers’ mysterious condition?

• But is this villain real or just a figment of Captain Marvel’s increasingly deadly imagination?

  1. Wait… So instead of a basic crossover between the two books, now we get a whole miniseries?

    • One shot, then the next four parts crossover between Captain Marvel and Assemble.

    • Yep, they used this same format for the Journey Into Mystery and New Mutants “Exiled” crossover around this time last year.

      I think the intention behind the format (besides telling a cool story) is to get Captain Marvel-only fans reading Avengers Assemble and vice versa, in hopes that they like the other book enough to stick around after the crossover. I’m not sure how well that worked out with Exlied (as New Mutants was cancelled and JIM was reoriented), but this should be particularly interesting since KSD already writes all of the involved titles.

  2. Is this really “hotly anticipated?” I mean i only just saw the solicit in last months Captain Marvel.

  3. At least they fixed her hair! Now if we can only get Hawkeye back into his costume…

  4. I’ve been hotly anticipating it. So… yes.

    I don’t understand the folks that are reading Assemble but aren’t reading Marvel and vice versa. Kelly-Sue is consistently entertaining on both books. The two issue Ultron break on Assemble has been maddening.

    As for Carol’s hair, it’s been cut whichever way the artists drawing her have liked. In her solo book she’s had long flowing locks since Andrade showed up, a good thing. I can feel myself building up to a fanboy rant now so I’ll stop.

    But.. yeah, hotly anticipated. 🙂

  5. I’ve really enjoyed DeConnick’s Captain Marvel, but haven’t read any Assemble. Is it any good?

    • She’s only done two arcs but I found both to be fun “grab some Avengers and have an adventure” stories. KSD writes laugh out loud dialogue. Her plotlines are never so convoluted that I need to read something three times to figure it out. And I never feel like she’s being dishonest with her cast.

      When Capt. America shows up he acts the way I expect him to. Same goes for Hulk or Thor or Black Widow. Eventually folks will just start discounting me as a KSD fanboy but she writes the kind of comic I want to read. She may very well be writing the kind of comic you want too.

    • Issue 9 of Avengers Assemble which was her debut is by far the funniest comic I have read in the last 6 months. It has Wolverine telling Captain Marvel how to cook microwave popcorn and Spiderman labeling Hulk and Spiderwomen “Team Sad” Also Cromics there are FAR worst things to be than a KSD fanboy. Things I see on this site everyday. In fact I’m proud to be a KSD fanboy. I wear that as a badge of honor for my love of great comic writers.

  6. I’m slowly getting into the Captain Marvel series, despite the lackluster outfit and the weird hair issues (what’s with the fauxhawk — ugh!). The stories have been pretty good. And despite his non-traditional, stylized work, I found Andrade to be a very good layout artist storyteller. I definitely think they need to rethink this outfit — but I feel the same about many of the Marvel NOW outfits.

  7. I love KSD;s writing, my problem with Captain Marvel and this one shot is the art. After this crossover I will probably be dropping Captain Marvel until the art changes.

  8. Been a fan of carol from the very beginning. ..I’m enjoying this
