Written by Jeph Loeb and illustrated by Tim Sale, Captain America: White will hit shelves as a five-issue miniseries starting September. The first two issues will hit in September, while the remaining three will hopefully come in the subsequent months.
"This is a very special project to me, something that I can honestly say is a career highlight,"series editor Mark Paniccia told Marvel.com. "Jeph and Tim put their hearts and souls into this series and have produced—along with color guru Dave Stewart and the design geniuses at Comiccraft—what I think the best of their iconic collaborations."
Set during World War II and the present-day, Captain America: White will primarily follow Cap and sidekick Bucky during their golden age missions. The miniseries continues Loeb and Sale’s acclaimed “Marvel Color” series, which takes intimates looks at the lives of Marvel’s biggest icons. Past entries include Spider-Man: Blue, Daredevil: Yellow, and Hulk: Gray.
