Marvel has sent out a press release revealing Joe Quesada‘s cover for The Life of Captain Marvel #1, the upcoming series by Margaret Stohl and Carlos Pacheco that launches this July. Or is it actually by Margaret Stohl, Carlos Pacheco, and Marvel execs Joe Quesada and Sana Amanat? The press release features quotes by Stohl giving praise to Quesada and Amanat’s contributions to the series:
“Writing Life of Captain Marvel has already been an extraordinary experience, one of those rare times in a writer’s life when the fictional universe you inhabit seems more real than anything else,” Stohl said. “I’m so grateful to Sana Amanat and Joe Quesada for helping shape it; they are both just huge blazing talents in the writers room. It’s a deeply personal origin story, a family story, an emotional story — somehow both very big, and very small — and the way Carlos draws it has changed the way I think about comics. He breathes as much life into her as any words ever could, probably more. Life and all the things that means to Carol at the moment — regret and resolve and hope.”
But Stohl wasn’t done, going so far as to say that she and Quesada have “joint custody” over the story.
“I always knew Joe was an incredible artistic talent, but Life has shown me a new side of him as a creator,” she added. “We truly have joint custody over Carol’s origin story here, and I am so grateful to share her and this journey with him. He has taught me so much about visual storytelling, and heart.”
When Joe said he was going to be more involved with the publishing side of things, we didn’t realize how far he’d actually go in taking control! Check out Quesada’s cover below.
