New Comics for the week of Wednesday, November 26, 2014: The Man Without Fear vs. The Iron-Man Without ShameNovember 20, 2014
(I was this close to naming this entry “They may have wanted Tim Meadows…” I thought better of it, but if you get the reference, then you get a No-Prize.)
There has been a significant amount of attention directed at Sam Wilson becoming the all-new Captain America as part of Marvel’s Avengers Now! (note the obligatory exclamation point) initiative. I have to say I was a big fan of the move from the moment it was announced. I’ve loved The Falcon for ages and Anthony Mackie’s fantastic performance in Captain America: The Winter Soldier upped the public’s awareness of the character immensely. I figure if Steve was going to be picking anyone to carry on for him it would be Sam (or maybe Carol Danvers, but she’s got too much of a good thing going right now in Marvel’s other Captain book).
And I have to say, Marvel delivered. I was not a big fan of Rick Remender’s previous run on Captain America, but I loved All-New Captain America #1. The action was great, the character moments were spot on, and it was beautifully illustrated.
There’s one thing that’s kind of bothering me though…
