Kelly Thompson’s final Captain Marvel Run to Release this June

Kelly Thompson bids farewell to CAPTAIN MARVEL with an over-sized finale issue in June!

Kelly Thompson ends her final run with CAPTAIN MARVEL #50. An over-sized issue featuring art by Javier Pina and David Lopez, the comic will mark the end of a run by one of the longest-running writers of Carol Danvers with 50 issues.

The storyline marks the end of a legendary run of comics featuring story arcs like the revolutionary “Re-Entry” and Carol’s dark turn in “The Last Avenger” to pivotal tie-ins to some of Marvel’s biggest events like War of the Realms and Empyre. The writer shared both on social media and in a message to fans, how much this opportunity had meant to her.

“When Marvel asked me to write Carol’s new Captain Marvel series back in 2018, in the lead-up to her first film, I was delighted and also terrified. But I’m glad I didn’t let the terror win, because it has truly been a fantastic experience,” Thompson shared in a Marvel press release. “I’ve worked with some of the most incredible people in the business — I’d list them all but at 50 issues it’s a truly massive list! — but I certainly have to call out editor Sarah Brunstad who brought me in and helped build this book from the very beginning. She has been a constant source of support through a run that I don’t think either of us ever imagined would be nearly five years deep and heading toward issue 50. While it hasn’t always been easy, I’m so proud of the stories we’ve told with Carol, but none of it would have been possible without the fans. Captain Marvel fans are some of the best comic fans — and humans — I’ve ever experienced, truly. So thank you for this run. We made it, but you all made it so loved, and so long. Thank you.”

Below, is Carmen Carnero’s dazzling cover featuring standout moments from throughout the run. Overall, it’s an epic ending to a well-received run of a favorite and important character in Marvel’s history.
