Still in mourning

Marvel today was trumpeting the mainstream coverage of the death of Captain America, but in its list of media outlets that covered the story it neglected to mention The Gazette. Guess we’re chopped liver. Oh well.
Anyway, that widespread coverage seemed to fuel sales. I know copies of “Captain America” No. 25 went fast at Bargain Comics yesterday.

I read my copy when I got home last night. Though a sniper’s bullet did fell our hero, it turns out it was a second gunman that finishes the job in a dramatic revelation at the end. Pretty chilling last panel.

Newsarama has an indepth interview today with “Captain America” writer Ed Brubaker. Lots of details on how the story evolved.
