Joss Whedon's writing a new Captain America issue

But it looks like he'll be working on the series starring Sam Wilson, the Falcon. And he won't be alone. Some other writers with similar politics and questionable talent are part of this "75th anniversary" special:
The 75th anniversary issue of Captain America: Sam Wilson, will see Whedon work with Astonishing X-Men artist John Cassaday on a new story about the character, Entertainment Weekly reported. The issue, out on 30 March, will also feature stories “celebrating the legacy and legend of Captain America throughout history”, Marvel said, from writers and artists including Greg Rucka, Mike Perkins and Tim Sale.
Am I seeing correctly? This stars Falcon in Steve Rogers' outfit, yet they call it an anniversary issue? And what makes Rucka somebody to celebrate, but not Jack Kirby, Stan Lee and other writers/artists from the Golden/Silver/Bronze ages? Already, they're making clear this is an overblown production.

And, according to EW there's somebody else involved who's already alienated most of the fans:
The issue will also include a main story from the series creative team of Nick Spencer and Daniel Acuna, [...]
With Spencer on board, I don't see much to celebrate. And how do we know Whedon's direction won't be similar? Marvel's long ruined Cap to the point where there's nothing to celebrate in the modern comics output.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
