The creators of Marvel’s “color” series are finally putting out the highly-anticipated Captain America: White comic book. The project that has been practically mythified after it was first mentioned in 2008, but Marvel Comics has announced that the mini-series will be released this September.
As one of the greatest tag teams in comic book history, Tim Sale and Jeph Loeb (together, the duo has done: Batman: The Long Halloween, Batman: Dark Victory, Catwoman: When in Rome) have created a line of Marvel Comics stories that chronicle formative years of certain heroes. The other books in the “color” series include:
- Spider-Man: Blue – It’s Valentines Day, and Peter is feeling… blue. This is a recount of when Peter met Mary Jane Watson for the first time, and how he fell for Gwen Stacy. There’s some Spider-Man stuff in there, too!
- Daredevil: Yellow – The main love interest of this story is Karen Page (same lady from the Netflix series, you noobs). It’s not a story that ends up particularly well for anybody.
- Hulk: Gray – Bruce Banner isn’t an out of control beast ALL the time. Sometimes, he’s in loooooove. This time, with Betty Ross, the daughter of the Red Hulk, Thunderbolt Ross.
