Genis-Vell: Captain Marvel reunites Genis with longtime writer Peter David alongside rising star artist Juanan Ramírez. The five issue series isn’t just the character’s return to prominence, but also reunites the cast of David’s long-running ongoing- Genis, Rick Jones and Marlo Chandler.

From the Marvel press release: Both now back in the land of the living, Genis-Vell and Rick Jones are about to come crashing back into each other! Can Rick Jones save Genis — and himself — before they both fade out of existence? Is Rick’s ex-wife, Marlo, the key? Find out in this surprising saga that will chart a new course through the Marvel Universe for Genis, Rick, and more!

“I never thought I’d have the opportunity to return to Genis, what with him being dead and all. But apparently death never lasts…which is actually one of the themes of the limited series I came up with,” David said. “It’s great to be back with Genis, Rick, Marlo and the whole Genis-Vell gang.”

Check out the variant covers for the first issue below and be sure to pick up the series debut in June!
