THE DEFINITIVE ORIGIN OF CAPTAIN MARVEL! Carol Danvers was just a girl from the Boston suburbs who loved science and the Red Sox until a chance encounter with a Kree hero gave her incredible super-powers. Now, she's a leader in the Avengers and the commander of Alpha Flight. But what if there were more to the story? When crippling anxiety attacks put her on the sidelines in the middle of a fight, Carol finds herself reliving memories of a life she thought was far behind her. You can't outrun where you're from - and sometimes, you HAVE to go home again. But there are skeletons in Captain Marvel's closet - and what she discovers will change her entire world. Written by best-selling author Margaret Stohl and drawn by fan-favorite comics veteran Carlos Pacheco, this is the true origin of Captain Marvel.

Carol Danvers is not necessarily an open book but we do know about her past. About her military background. Her powers. Her love of her kitty. But her home life, though touched on here-and-there, has been a little more of a secret. But secrets, especially ones you hide deep down, can come back and haunt you.

Come by and pick up Life of Captain Marvel #1 (of 5) and see another side of Captain Marvel. One that we never could have expected.

Euthanauts #1

Writter: Tini Howard
Artist: Nick Robles
Letterer: Aditya Bidikar

Death is like outer space-a seemingly unknowable, terrifying blackness that yields beautiful discoveries and truths-if only you've got the right kind of rocketship. Thalia Rosewood has had a lifelong obsession with death, keeping her from living her life to the fullest. Mercy Wolfe has a brain tumor the size of a billiard ball, and a need for a new recruit before her next journey begins. Inigo Hanover is a reluctant tether to the world beyond, seeking to continue a cycle that exploration would halt. Go toward the light. Then go beyond. EUTHANAUTS.

There is a place... Just beyond the veil. A place that science cannot explain. Nor religion. A place where death and life intersect. And that is where this tale lies. Within that world. Within those times.

Come by and grab the first issue of Euthanauts #1.
