J. Michael Stracyznski returns to Marvel Comics alongside artist Jesús Saiz for a relaunch of Captain America this September.
Captain America #1 hits stores on September 20, and Straczynski says, “Overall, the goal is to do some really challenging stories, some really fun stories, and get inside Steve’s head to see who he really is in ways that may not have been fully explored before. If folks like what I did with Peter in Amazing Spider-Man, and Thor in, well… Thor, then they should give this a shot, because I’m really swinging for the bleachers in this one!”
Straczynski’s last series for Marvel was the long-delayed Golden Age heroes mini-series The Twelve in 2012. In recent years, the writer has contributed short stories for anthologies such as Marvel Comics #1000, Thanos: Death Notes, and the anniversary issue of Thor #750.
