"John [Walker] is just such a fantastic character for the Marvel Universe... His is a voice I think is somewhat lacking in the Marvel Universe. I’m very excited to push him forward and put the spotlight back on him." - Nick Spencer

"When high profile civil rights leaders die, other leaders and politicians attend their memorials despite not being their closest friends. Likewise, many times the closest relatives and friends don't attend/speak at the public memorial, but instead focus on the funeral." - Nick Spencer

CBR: Is the conflict between Sam and Steve almost like "Civil War?" Will they have two different ideological points of view? And will the public and the rest of the Marvel Universe be divided on where they stand?

Nick Spencer: Yeah, the public will be very divided. I'm a huge "Civil War" fan. I'm a great admirer of that story. I think it's still kind of top of the mountain in terms of event stories. This is a very different kind of conflict though.

Making sure that it's very easy for readers to see both sides of this argument was a major priority for me. The one thing I would say to all the Steve fans out there, of which I am one, is that I was not about to put him in a position where I found his viewpoint unsympathetic just because the star of the book is Sam. I think that Steve has a really strong argument here as does Sam.

CBR, io9 and other sites are noting how certain sections of the more... conservative end of the US media are finding the new title featuring Sam Wilson as Captain America problematic.

But it's not the hero, so much as the villains... I guess )

"When Ed [Brubaker] was doing the book it obviously had that classic Steranko vibe. It was very much a spy-noir story in a lot of aspects. Then when you look at Rick's run you can see the hat tip to Kirby especially. So I wanted to kind of reconnect with some of the Steve Englehart of it and some of the Mark Gruenwald era, which was very important to me, because that’s the Cap I grew up with."

Some time ago, I did a post where I wondered if Captain America "Sentimentalized" World War II. So, here are two of those pages, and a third one from CIVIL WAR: WAR CRIMES.

Making Falcon partners with Captain America was a good idea. Trying to discuss race relations in a superhero comic in the 1970s was also a good idea. Yet, the same thing happened to Falcon *and* Sam Wilson a lot: An African-American character would call him a "sellout" and other nasty names.


Did anyone read that Harriet Beecher Stowe novel? )

Been a month since this was released, apparently it's all but confirmed it's set post-Secret Wars, though I don't fully understand what that means yet, honestly.

It's heavy on the Pym/Ultron/Vision trifecta, and this is an image-heavy post, forewarned.
