CAPTAIN AMERICA's comic and its future has been a reaccuring topic of late since the character was killed. Well finally CAPTAIN AMERICA #26 is about to come out; May 23rd. Its the first issue since his death and I'm looking forward to seeing where writer ED BRUBAKER takes us without the leading character. Here are 3 pages from the issues. Wow, seeing Cap like that is really fucked up. Yes, that's the point, but its still fucked up. I think the "Jesus Pose" is a bit much, but whatever. Personally, I think seeing his body like (undignified & arguably disrespectful) further diminishes the legend and the symbol that he was. But then again, perhaps that's the point.
