"Captain America: White"

I talked today with writer Jeph Loeb, who is reunited with artist Tim Sale for "Captain America: White," an upcoming miniseries from Marvel. Though it won't launch until late this year, a special issue No. 0 will arrive in comic book shops next month, just to get you revved up for the actual series. The "zero" issue will feature a 17-page origin of Bucky, Cap's sidekick during the war years, plus some special features.

Loeb and Sale, of course, have done other Marvel "color books," including "Spider-Man: Blue," "Daredevil: Yellow" and "Hulk: Gray." The colors have double meaning: "Spider-Man: Blue," for example, refers to the blue in Spidey's costume and the blue mood he's in. Loeb wouldn't explain the meaning behind "Captain America: White," but says it will become clear in the first issue.

I'll have more on Loeb and Cap in a future Comics Fan.

Hmm... I may be ready for Cap to come back and this seems like a good way to let me ease into it after the way he died. I hated it but... ;-(

I see that the "final chapter" of the death of Captain America is coming up in his regular title. So is Brubaker going to bring back the real Cap at the end or still keep us hanging?
