It may be a bit of a wait for all you hardcore Cap fans, but it’ll be worth it, as this October, ahead of the highly anticipated new series All-New Captain America, you can get a first taste of Sam Wilson wielding the shield in all-new Captain America: Fear Him Infinite comic, the latest 6-issue digital-first mini series from Marvel Comics!
Bridging the gap between Sam taking up the shield in Captain America #25 and the debut of his new series in November, this latest awesome Infinite Comic chronicles Sam Wilson’s first high-flying adventure as Captain America! Fan-favorite writer Dennis Hopeless (Avengers Arena, X-Men: Season One) and rising star artist Szymon Kudranski (Spawn) put together an all-new adventure that will define Sam Wilson’s new patriotic role and the man he will become!
“We’ll mostly be dealing with the psychological implications of picking up the shield,” says writer Dennis Hopeless in an interview with Marvel.com. “Sam has to figure out what kind of Captain America he wants to be and what parts of his own personality he can bring to the role.”
With such a major change in direction for such an iconic character, his is the perfect jumping on point for new readers, but for those true believers it is also set in current continuity to provide plenty of interest for long time readers. As with previous Infinite titles like Wolverine: Japan’s Most Wanted and Deadpool: The Deadly Gauntlet, Captain America: Fear Him will continue to push the envelope of the storytelling possibilities of Infinite Comics thanks to layouts by Infinite specialists Geoffo and Mast. Alongside Kudranski they will utilise digital devices as a new canvas, Infinite Comics offer a revolutionary new approach to storytelling while still staying true to the medium’s greatest strengths, and who are we to disagree.
