Well, let’s play a little Friday game, shall we?
The brilliant Javier Pina (with a layout assist from the also brilliant David Lopez) and coloring from terrific Yen Nitro did this absolutely gorgeous double page party spread for CAPTAIN MARVEL #50:
And though I know artists loathe things like this (I know I certainly would) — it felt like exactly what our issue needed — and so Javi took the bullet and made it happen and honestly? It brings me A LOT of joy. So thank you, Javi! And also thank you for your sacrifices so we can ignore what we’re supposed to be doing this Friday afternoon to instead play a little game.
On twitter people are trying to name all the characters, and so I say, let’s do that, but let’s do it here instead, and let’s make it a contest and whoever gets them all first (or gets the most/closest/fastest/etc/whatever) wins a signed copy of CAPTAIN MARVEL #50 from yours truly (plus some other fun stuff of course).
Here’s the spread again with with numbering to eliminate confusion:
Note: There are two acceptable answers for the gentleman at 14.
(edited to add: There are also 3 names I will accept for gentleman #3 and two I will accept for gentleman #10).
And you get a hint for slots 20 and 21 — they are not actually Marvel characters — AND you can probably figure out the answer to those two, if you’re stumped, by going on twitter and checking out my feed. ;D
Leave your guesses in the comments. Annnnnnnnnd…. GO!
ETA: I guess I didn’t put and end time on this and you really have to do that if there’s an actual prize happening. So let’s say that all comment answers have to be entered by 12am Eastern/9pm Pacific, today (5/12/23) okay? You’re all doing really well by the way — current leader has 27/29 I believe!
I’ll be checking in on the comments periodically this afternoon/evening! Good luck!
So far I believe the best anyone has done is 26/29
(which is fucking great).
But still a chance for someone to win it all! ;D
They are all Skrulls!
