Harkening back to the days of Tales of Suspense, writer Derek Landy and artist Angel Unzueta will team Iron Man and Captain America up for a new five issue mini-series in November.
Captain America/Iron Man #1 begins when a government agent turned Hydra spy that has ties to both Steve Rogers and Tony Stark busts out of prison, the duo naturally decides to investigate and uncovers more than they expect.
Landy drew inspiration from those early team-ups for the new series and “Ever since the pandemic hit, I’ve been making my way through the old Marvel omnibuses, reading all the stories from the ’60s that I’d only heard about/absorbed through osmosis—with Steve Rogers and Tony Stark being uppermost on the reading pile. Little did I know that this was actually a prolonged bout of diligent and thorough research for which I should be roundly admired—nay lauded. The opportunity to write these characters is as daunting as it is thrilling, but with Ángel Unzueta on art duties, I’m reassured that it’ll at least LOOK gorgeous.”
Unzueta is equally excited to work with Landy, and considers it “…a dream come true to draw Iron Man and Captain America. They are my two favorite characters in the Marvel Universe (in and out of costume). Working with Derek has been a GREAT pleasure. He is always enthusiastic about the artwork and encourages me to make changes as I see fit so it is really easy to work with him.”
Captain America/Iron Man #1 will be released on November 24.
