Marvel and the creative team of writer Nick Spencer and artist Paul Renaud kick off the Captain America event “Take Back the Shield” on October 19th with Captain America: Sam Wilson #14, and we’ve got preview pages here!
Reflecting not only our politically divided nation, but also the nation of comic fans who question the need for two Captain Americas, the story finds Sam Wilson dealing with global pressure to step down as Captain America, seeing as Steve Rogers has returned to the role.
Spencer has boldly decided to examine some fans’ reactions to Sam Wilson taking up the mantle within the story of his series itself, and had the character deal with claims of tokenism or political correctness, or with feelings that he isn’t the “real” Captain America, issues that have only gotten more pronounced since Steve’s return.
But, as most comic fans with internet access know, Steve Rogers has a secret of his own. Will Sam stay true to his convictions and to the ideals Captain America is supposed to stand for? Will he and Steve Rogers come into conflict? Find out this October in “Take Back the Shield” and get a head start with the preview pages below!
