Writer Ta-Nehisi Coates, known for his explosive run on BLACK PANTHER, will be teaming up with artist Leinil Yu (PHOENIX RESURRECTION) to make one heck of a Captain America story. “I think it’s a really exciting time to be writing Captain America right now. The country is in an interesting place, and I look forward to inhabiting Steve Rogers’ character – this guy who has been a sort of awkward fit for the world, out of time as people say.” -Ta-Nehisi Coates Fans can take in all this duo has to offer when CAPTAIN AMERICA #1 comes out on the Fourth of July! Our most star-spangled hero debuting his new run on the most star-spangled holiday? Yes, please! Can’t wait until July? Never fear, True Believer! You can get a sneak peek of what this duo has planned on May 5th, when the AVENGERS/CAPTAIN AMERICA Free Comic Book Day issue comes out.

As he says in his commentary, Coates isn’t sure if he can make an amazing Captain America story, but he sure is ready to try. Us Cap fans are ready for him to try as well! “After re-inventing the Black Panther for the modern era, Ta-Nehisi now brings his sharp scripting sensibilities to Steve Rogers and his new place in the Marvel Universe.” -Editor-In-Chief C.B. Cebulski Image courtesy of Marvel Entertainment Exciting Revitalization from Ta-Nehisi Coates and Leinil Yu With high words of praise from Marvel’s Editor-In-Chief, this run is shaping up to be one of the most electrifying yet! While the current run from Mark Waid and Chris Samnee has been the revitalization Cap needed after the events of SECRET EMPIRE, it’ll be exciting to see where Coates and Yu take our beloved Cap next.
