Yesterday, at Wondercon out in Anaheim, Marvel announced a new Captain Marvel series, starring Carol Danvers, written by Kelly Sue Deconnick and drawn by Dexter Soy.

Jamie McKelvie designed Captain Danvers's new costume, which just looks great:
Our idea was to give her a kind of swash-buckling costume that invoked a sense of her history as an Air Force officer. Her hair is slicked back at the sides when in costume - so her Kree-style helmet can form when she needs it.
The darn thing even looks like it keeps her arms and legs warm while she's all the way up in the sky like that, unlike her last costume. I do wish that I liked Dexter Soy's art anywhere near as much as I like McKelvie's, though; as great as the new costume is, I'm not sure I can shell out four bucks for a book that looks that stiff and pointy on a regular basis.
