Back in the day, I first discovered Marvel Comics’ Captain Marvel when the character was male and was an alien species known as the Kree. His name was actually “Mar-Vell”. I found out about the character when I went into a comic book shop for the very first time sometime in 1987 and saw the “Death of Captain Marvel” graphic novel! Imagine that, I find this really cool comic book character just as the company was basically axing him. Fast forward to today and we have the current embodiment of Captain Marvel. I have not yet read this particular comic book series, but I’m planning on downloading the first issue on my iPad so I can check it out.
As for the sketch itself, this one is a little larger than normal. Done on Strathmore Mixed Media 400 Series paper, 11″ x 14″.
