According to a recent posting on Steve Eptingâ€™s site, (Steve is the artist currently drawing the very compelling Captain America comic published by Marvel Comics) After Captain America #50 hits the stores this May, the book will return to itâ€™s original numbering, which makes the June issue #600. Here’s how that issue is described in Marvelâ€™s June 2009 Solicitations:
CAPTAIN AMERICA #600
Written by ED BRUBAKER with MARK WAID, ROGER STERN & OTHERS
Pencils by BUTCH GUICE, LUKE ROSS, DALE EAGLESHAM & OTHERS
Cover by STEVE EPTING
50/50 Cover by ALEX ROSS
Where were you when Captain America died? It’s the anniversary of the day Steve Rogers was killed, a day of reflection and mourning in the Marvel U…a time to look back on the things Steve did and what he stood for… or is this issue actually the beginning of the most wicked plot twist since issue 25? Yeah, actually it’s both. Plus, contributions from Cap creators past and present, including a very special essay by Joe Simon, a classic story from Capâ€™s Golden Age, a full gallery of 600 Cap covers, and more anniversary shenanigans than you can shake a shield at!
104 PGS./New and Reprints/Rated T+ …$4.99
The cover is a deception James Buchanan â€œBuckyâ€ Barnes in his three identities (Bucky, Winter Soldier, Captain America) all under the watchful eye of Steve Rogers (the original Captain America). Iâ€™m thinking that this should be a great issue, personally, I’m looking forward to reading it.
