The Captain Marvel movie is out this week. But there are no-specifically Captain Marvel comics published this week.
But that's okay, Marvel Comics have got a couple out that could be spun round by canny comic shop owners.
The first is Meet The Skrulls #1. We talked about that yesterday, it definitely taps into the role and moral ambiguity of a Skrull invasion in the movie. And a nice big shiny issue one.
But there's also Avengers #16. Which is mid-way through its big War Of The Vampires storyline ahead of War Of The Realms mega-event. Not traditionally the kind of comci book one mihght hand a newcomer, fresh out of a Captain Marvel screening.
But it is drawn by David Marquez, which is always a good thing. And you get scenes like this…
…which culimate in scenes like this.
Which has a nice thematic tie-in with the movie as well… that's if people who see comic book films actually might pick up a comic or two. You never know. It could happen…
AVENGERS #16 WR

"WAR OF THE VAMPIRES" PART 3!
Welcome to the Avengers, Blade – hope you survive the experience! Though there are plenty of vampires out there that definitely won't, as the civil war tearing apart the worldwide undead community rages on.
