Comic Shop Picks: Captain America: White launches in a crowded week

Lots to like once again on the racks this Wednesday, including the latest Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale hued epic- Captain America: White.

Harken all the way back to WWII with Cap in this new mini-series from the team behind Spider-Man: Blue, Hulk: Gray, and Daredevil: Yellow (not to mention Batman: The Long Halloween). Starring the first man to don the Captain America uniform, Steve Rogers, the book is loaded up with Marvel characters from the last great war like Bucky (you know, back when he was still just ‘Bucky’) and the Howling Commandos (you know, back when they weren’t… monsters).

It should be a good one, and is not to be missed by anyone who still counts themselves as a fan of the original (and still the best) Sentinel of Liberty. Past Captain America: White though, there’s still tons to like this week.
