Sooooo about a week ago I hit this sort of bizarre milestone of having more than a thousand more followers on Tumblr than on Twitter. I’m not the cleverest girl in the world when it comes to analyzing social media and outreach and oh hey I’m bored already how about you?
But I mentioned this peculiar reversal to Warren Ellis, who is very, very insightful about this sort of thing and thinks Big Thoughts About The Interwebs And The Future And Whatnot and he asked, “And what will you give them to say thank you?”
“Um… I dunno.”
So today, the lovely and talented Sana Amanat gave me permission to share a screen cap of a moment from the next issue of CAPTAIN MARVEL (Issue 10) by myself and Mr. Christopher Sebela.

This is not out in the world anywhere else. You see it first.
Thank you for being so nice to us, Tumblr.
Captain Marvel #5 is out and my ask box is open. Tell me why you are reading this comic and you could win entry into my upcoming Captain Marvel Seventh Issue Contest.
Captain Marvel #4 Contest (Full rules and overview HERE)
Like or Reblog this post and you could win a copy of the issue and entry into the larger contest. I’m out of pins but I’ll throw in a random Heroclix figure. I have the prize for the first Power of Seven Contest (to be held in November) and it’s really cool, all Carol fans will want one :D
Contest open until 12PM EST next Wednesday September 26, 2012.
Note: It is difficult for me to contact you if you don’t have an Ask box.
How much do we love Captain Marvel? SO MUCH, OF COURSE.
BUT OMGOSH. On my 20th re-read of the day, I just realized something SO FREAKING COOL (and yes, I’m crazy slow, shut up).
So on the splash page above we’ve got the little blurb about how they’re recognizing these long-lost awesome women who, oh, look kinda familiar to the readers, right? No biggie.
IT LOOKS LIKE CAROL MIGHT BE CHANGING THINGS. :D
We get the rather innocuous piece of information that cute little “Bee” solider girl has been learning how to sketch cartoons from the other soldier who died in the previous issue. Okay, whatever. Oh, and in case you haven’t been following, blonde pig-tails? Her name is Daisy. Keep this in mind.
We get her full name here, last name “Kawasaki”. LET’S REMEMBER THAT, SHALL WE???
We see she’s been sketching Carol. Hey, I would, too: chick is badass and one day I will have her costume (and by “one day”, I mean this Halloween. Parts of it are in the mail as we speak). Also, she can fly. Yay sketching that.
BUT THEN. AND THIS IS THE THING I DIDN’T REALIZE UNTIL MY ROOMMATE WAS LIKE “Oh, that cute page is a foreshadowy thing”. :
Oh, cute, an old-timey Captain Marvel comic! Tee-hee. How neat.
WAIT. Look. LOOK RIGHT THERE. AT THE ILLUSTRATOR.
OH SHIT IT’S BEE. BEE TOTALLY ILLUSTRATED THIS.
“JUST LAST YEAR” “BY HER GRANDCHILDREN” “DAISY DIDDLE”.
NOT ONLY is it totally illustrated by Bee… BUT IT’S WRITTEN BY DAISY. GUYS. GUYS.
GUYS. Carol is TOTALLY changing the past, AND THIS COMIC IS ONE OF THE EFFECTS OF THAT!!!
I’m sorry, that is just ABSURDLY COOL.
And, as if that wasn’t enough, we get a little bit of OH MY FREAKING GOSH foreshadowing:
UGK YOU GUYS I know this could be a total misdirect but GOSH I’M SO FREAKING PSYCHED FOR THE NEXT ISSUE. GUYS. GUYS. UGH.
I grabbed my comics before I went into the office today and was reading AVX: Versus while sitting on my buddy’s desk. We’re grad students, BTW. I came across the following, BUSTED A GUT LAUGHING, and shoved it in his face. The room filled with much laughter for a long, long time (key point: we are grad students):
Oh gosh hello my life. What are you doing in my comic books?????
Avenging Spider-Man #10
Carol and Peter have great scenes together. Can we just have a monthly Spider-Man/Captain Marvel series?
AGREE. Let’s petition!
