CAPTAIN MARVEL by Evan Shaner



Spoiler warning: there is no next page. I've got nothing that I haven't said on the internet a million times already, but Captain Marvel's a favorite of mine. Sorry for the nonsense "storyline" but it was an excuse to fit in as many characters as I could.

Excellent pick, Ron!

Exceptional work, Evan. Your art style is perfectly suited for the Marvel Family. Your love for the characters really comes across, as well. I'd definitely buy a Captain Marvel series if you drew it (and lettered it, too).

Thanks, Evan! I even noticed the nod to Don Newton and the RBCC!

Damn you! I can't think of one idea, and here you are with a handful of'em!! ;)

Great work, man!

Excellent!

Nothing about this that isn't just friggin' great! The period feel, the cast of whacky ideas and characters that make Captain Marvel so fun, it's all there. And you make Tawny look like a major league ass-kicker. Beautiful.

Ron Salas said...

Fantastic. Just what I expected.
Great job, Evan.

Dan McDaid said...

Just sublime, Evan. Exactly right in every way.

And I plan to start saying "What a pickle!" in my everyday life. That's your fault!

Beautiful tribute to the Beck-Costanza-Shaffenberger comics of the Golden Age, right down to the pseudo-Ben Day screens!

WOW!!!! really nice! How about a place in some next Wednesday Comics V2?

Evan "Doc" Shaner said...

Thanks everybody!

HB's Ghost- Is there a specific Newton thing you're referring to? Just curious. This was definitely a partial tribute to Newton but I didn't consciously reference anything.

This is perfect on so many levels! I'd love to read a strip like this once a week.

Xande said...

that's what I'm talking about: Evan Shaner on Cap, for DC Wednesday Comics V2.

Lubbert Das said...

Fantastic!
I wish there was another page...

Actually, an ongoing book would be nice.

Mitch Gerads said...

I'm with Breitweiser, you should do one of these each week :D

C'mon DC, Shaner on a "god-willing" out of continuity Shazam series is a solid bet!
