Marvel Comics announced today that the award-winning creative team of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale would be reuniting to bring their talents to the Star-Spangled Avenger himself in the forthcoming Captain America: White limited series.
Originally intended to be released alongside their heralded Yellow, Blue, and Gray series, Captain America: White is a story set in Cap’s home era of World War II, and will pair him with classic sidekick Bucky Barnes.
The duo have seen a great deal of success over the years, and despite the delay, this is a story which will likely be worth the price of admission.
Marvel has released a set of preview images, which you can check out below!
