Marvel Comics is set to launch two new Captain America ongoing titles beginning in April 2022.
The first series, Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty, will be written by Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly with art by Carmen Carnero.
Writer Tochi Onyebuchi and artist R.B. Silva will see Sam Wilson as Captain America once again in Captain America: Symbol of Truth.
Ahead of the release of these new series, Marvel will release Captain America #0 which features Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson teaming up after an attack from Arnim Zola.
“We’ve seen Sam Wilson deal with the legacy of Captain America and race in very inward terms with regards to America: What does it mean for America to accept a Black Captain America?” Onyebuchi said in a press release from Marvel Comics. “One of the things I’m teasing in my book is, what does it mean for the rest of the world to accept a Black Captain America? That’s another part of the equation. If Captain America is in many ways a mimesis of America, with all the good and bad pathologies, what does that mean for the way in which America interacts with the rest of the world?”
‘With our story, what we really wanted to start looking at was, how has America changed? What does it mean to be a patriot now?” Kelly added in the same press release. “Cap can’t turn his back on America, neither of the Caps can, because the idea is good. The core is good and worth fighting for, but both need to wrestle with what that means in the year of our Lord 2022.”
