CAPTAIN AMERICA #377 is part of the "Streets of Poison" story. Cap gets high on meth and has to give up the Super Soldier Serum to sober up. Yes, there's more to it than that.

It's an ending. I'm not a big fan of conclusions that are basically nesting dolls. Epilogues are a great place to tease what's coming/fallout, but a final issue should aim to deliver resolution first and foremost in my opinion. [...] Often these things end with 'and here's what the next event/linewide shift' will be. I like real endings. -- Nick Spencer

Post a joke from this year's comic, it's a massive offense. Show one from the 80s? All in good fun. Reagan as snake-man, clearly a joke. Mockingbird in a t-shirt that says feminist, comics are ruined. -- Nick Spencer

Long time readers probably notice that if anything, the politics are less heavy handed nowadays. There was absolutely nothing subtle about the messages in 80s comics. It's just you were younger when you read them. -- Nick Spencer

'Over the years, a few writers and artists have tried to swim against the [grim and gritty] tide -- as I did with GENERATIONS, for instance. In fact, when I did BATMAN & CAPTAIN AMERICA, which basically spawned G1 when Marvel and DC decided not to play nice any more, I said I hoped my book would be popular enough to create a new "trend" in comics -- FUN! I also said, tho, looking back on how "relevant" had spun down into "grim and gritty", that I expected if "fun" did catch on it would not be long before it became "goofy".' - John Byrne

I’m not oblivious to the fact that folks can feel like they suffer from event fatigue or what have you. All I can say to that is, I personally believe that events are like any other kind of story. The delivery method doesn’t matter. Whether it’s its own title, a weekly book, an anthology, or a team-up, I don’t believe there is a type of book that doesn’t work. All that matters at the end of the day is whether or not your story is good. -- Nick Spencer

I think that’s where a lot of the best events start; they stem from a writer’s belief that you need a bigger canvas to tell a story, rather than trying to retrofit or come up with an event in the room. This is very much just a natural extension of what we’ve been building from “Captain America: Sam Wilson,” to “Avengers: Standoff,” to “Captain America: Steve Rogers,” to this. -- Nick Spencer

SECRET EMPIRE 4 may be our best-received issue to date, because a) Leinil Yu is a god, b) Hank Pym is the most interesting Marvel character. -- Nick Spencer

People, if Tony Stark can figure out how to create a holo-AI version of himself, I promise you he can figure out how to put a hoodie on it. -- Nick Spencer

I have a soft spot for these kinds of stories. I like events. I like big stories. I like stories about the interconnected universe and that draw from as many different facets from the Marvel Universe as possible. I have faith that when these things are done right audiences really respond. -- Nick Spencer
