FEATURING MUSIC FROM JAPANESE BREAKFAST
Revolutionary Marvel Spotlight Video Series Boldly Expands Exposure of Marvel’s Captain Marvel
Paired with some of Today’s Top Female-led Musical Acts
New York, NY—March 29, 2017 — Marvel Comics is proud to present an unprecedented approach in introducing the world to Marvel Comics and the next great breakout Marvel Super Hero – Captain Marvel! Masterfully mixing animated comics with in-depth narration and commentary, this fresh new video series is designed to present a whole new audience to the world of Carol Danvers, a.k.a., Captain Marvel, staring in her brand new comic book series THE MIGHTY CAPTAIN MARVEL available now in your local comic shop.
THE MIGHTY CAPTAIN MARVEL, written by New York Times best-selling author, Margaret Stohl (Black Widow: Forever Red, Black Widow: Red Vengeance), garnered international buzz and attention upon the announcement this past year. Marvel continues the excitement surrounding Marvel’s celebrated high-flying former Air Force pilot turned Super Hero, Captain Marvel, through a brand new Marvel music spotlight video series accompanied with the track “In Heaven” from Japanese Breakfast’s debut album, Psychopomp, available for purchase here.
Speaking with SyFy, Michelle Zauner of Japanese Breakfast said, “I love how much Marvel has embraced a more modern representation of women, especially women of color in their comics. I think my music is perfect for this series because I embrace being a mixed race woman in a genre that’s generally pretty dominated by white men. The faces of indie rock are changing a lot like the faces of comics!”
Each month, a new “Captain Marvel: Alien Nation”video will be released with the latest issue of Marvel Comics’ THE MIGHTY CAPTAIN MARVEL. The “Captain Marvel: Alien Nation”videos will educate new and old fans about Stohl’s THE MIGHTY CAPTAIN MARVEL series through commentary, motion graphics, as well as an energetic score from some of the world’s biggest female-led musical acts.
Narrated by writer, Margaret Stohl, accompanied with some of the world’s biggest female-led musical acts, “Captain Marvel: Alien Nation” will introduce fans to the history of Carol Danvers and spotlight why she is the hero to watch moving forward.
THE MIGHTY CAPTAIN MARVEL #3 is available digitally through the Marvel Digital Comic Shop and at all local comic book retailers. To find a comic shop near you, visit www.comicshoplocator.com or call 1-888-comicbook.
