What is Captain America’s new series about?
Captain America’s new Marvel Comics series comes from writer J. Michael Straczynski and artist Jesús Saiz, the latter of whom also provides the cover artwork. Marvel promises “a saga that spans Steve Rogers’ entire history as an evil that took root in his youth reemerges to threaten his future!”
An official synopsis elaborates, “Decades ago, Steve Rogers changed the world forever. Now powerful and insidious forces are assembling to ensure he never does it again. Past, present and future collide as the man out of time reckons with an existential threat determined to set the world on a darker path at any cost…”
“Overall, the goal is to do some really challenging stories, some really fun stories, and get inside Steve’s head to see who he really is in ways that may not have been fully explored before,” Straczynski said of the new series. “If folks like what I did with Peter in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, and Thor in, well … THOR, then they should give this a shot, because I’m really swinging for the bleachers in this one!”
Captain America #1 goes on sale Wednesday, September 20.
