Tomorrow’s Captain Marvel #9 – Not The Comic Some Speculators Thought it Might Be (Spoilers)

Yesterday, Bleeding Cool reported that tomorrow’s Captain Marvel #9 had sold out from Diamond Comic Distributors. And seemed to be repeating the pattern of last month’s Captain Marvel #8, which saw people buying multiple copies and selling them for multiples of cover price on eBay, all over the first appearance of new character Star who seemed to be winning over the public’s hearts and minds where Captain Marvel could not.

As well as attention being given to Captain Marvel #1 from the end of last year, with someone who could be the secret identity of Star.

However, for those planning to line up outside their comic store in the morning and wiping the shelf out, a word of warning. Bleeding Cool has learned that Star hardly appears in the comic book at all. A couple of panels in the distance. Hardly a second appearance and no sign of us being wiser about who or what she is. Unless of course…

Well, I’m told the ending is an interesting one. And to brush up on my Dr Minerva.

Captain Marvel #9 is published tomorrow.
