Two new Captain America series were announced at yesterday’s MONDO MARVEL panel at C2E2 — Steve Rogers: Super Soldier and Captain America: Patriot. The photos here are of the sneak peeks shown at the panel.
Bad news: Dale Eaglesham is no longer drawing Fantastic Four. Good news, he’s moving over to a new series titled Steve Rogers: Super Soldier. The four-issue mini-series launches in July and is written by Captain America mastermind Ed Brubaker.
Marvel editor Tom Brevoort told the audience that the story follows Steve Rogers in his post-Siege role, and also looks into the creation of the original super soldier serum that changed him into Captain America. It will be a high octane espionage adventure and will set up events that will affect the Marvel U for the foreseeable future. Covers for the series will be done by Carlos Pacheco.
The other Captain America series announced was Captain America: Patriot. This will be another four-issue mini-series and it follows Jeff Mace, who originally fought the Germans in WWII, and was then one of the men to take on the Captain America mantle after Steve Rogers’ disappearance. The story takes place in the 1940’s and shows how Mace tries to fill the shoes left by Rogers’ but finds he is unable to.
The series was described by Breevort as the lost story of the lost Captain America. The series will be written by Karl Kesel, and features art by Mitch Breitweiser.
