Yeah, but it's digital only.
And it's looking like it might not be available on Marvel's Chrome/PC webstore, unless there's some news about that getting revamped (which there doesn't seem to be).
So, it's Nova by Waid and Immonen, available exclusively for iOS and Android devices.

it's weird, I'm seeing what seems like a lot of negativity on news sites about this stuff

re: Nova news - happy that it is Waid and Immonen. I love Immonen. As for all the other shit... i don't care. is there going to be a trade paperback eventually? i'll buy that.
I promise you Marvel's announcement today about digital comics is only the first salvo as I storm the gates. Seeya Friday.

Don't say that. You may get your wish like Fraction/Gillen fans did with Uncanny X-Men.

Was Captain Marvel really that popular back in the day?
I know that he's an important part of Marvel history, but he's never struck me as a character worth reviving.
Captain Marvel is a name claimed by many. The DC character now known as Shazam! Captain-Marvell of the Kree. Photon. Marvel Boy. It seems to go around. And we know now that Marvel is reviving the name for a new series. But who will be under the star?
I”m told that this time, it’s Carol Danvers, Ms Marvel’s turn, in a new costume with a new name, and one that might be a little more user friendly for the fanboys. Coming from Marvel in July and written by Marvel rising star Kelly Sue DeConnick.
Captain Marvel is always a fan favourite of a comic. Will it remain so with a woman under the sobriquet? Marvel has been looking terribly patriarchal by not having a solo female lead comic book right now. Ms Marvel’s title under her own name was cancelled relatively recently. This could be a way to sneak the character past the institutionalised sexism in superhero comics.
Here’s what Ms Marvel looks like right now…
