First Issue: Captain America – White


Cap whiteWriter: Jeph Loeb

Art: Tim Sale

Colour: Dave Stewart

The story: In a time of introspection, Cap reflects on the distant past of WW2, and the reasons he and the American government decided to train up a teenage sidekick and put him in the line of fire.

Why read it?: The team of Loeb and Sale, in their long collaborative relationship, have brought us two bona fide contemporary classics in the form of Batman: The Long Halloween and Batman: Dark Victory, subsequently they’ve plied their wears over at Marvel, creating a series of mini-series that explore retrospective events in the lives of key characters, each one being as touching and beautiful as the last. Daredevil: Yellow, Hulk: Grey and Spider-Man: Blue were all wonderful, and judging from this first issue, Captain America: White promises to be just as good, if not better. Sale’s art style really flies with wartime subjects, and as an added bonus issue #0 is included in issue #1.
