Marvel Announces Captain America: White By Jeph Loeb And Tim Sale, Coming In September


Jeph Loeb is a busy man these days as Marvel’s Head of Television, but his schedule isn’t so packed that he can’t work on another project with one of his more notable comics collaborators. He and Tim Sale have already created plenty of magic with their “color” series, and they’re hoping to do more of the same for Captain America.

Marvel announced today that Loeb and Sale will reunite for Captain America: White, which will go on sale in September. Here’s how Marvel describes this throwback tale of the Star-Spangled Avenger:

"Peel back the layers of Steve Rogers with this untold tale of Captain America, as he defended the world from the forces of evil, and met a young man named Bucky Barnes who would change his life forever.  Jeph Loeb & Tim Sale’s combination of in-depth characterization and high stakes action take on one of Captain America’s most dangerous missions of all!"

Sounds like a World War II tale to me. Loeb and Sale previously did Spider-Man: Blue, Daredevil: Yellow and Hulk: Gray (conveniently gathered in one TPB, FYI), all of which drew critical acclaim. Still, Marvel editor Mark Paniccia says the duo are ready to take things to another level with Cap.

“This is a very special project to me, something that I can honestly say is a career highlight,” Paniccia said to “Jeph and Tim put their hearts and souls into this series had have produced – along with color guru Dave Stewart and the design geniuses at Comiccraft – what I think is the best of their iconic collaborations.”

High praise indeed. Take a look at some of Sale’s always gorgeous art and be sure to look for Captain America: White in just a few months.
