On sale this Wednesday, All-New Captain America #1 marks the beginning of Sam Wilson’s tenure as Captain America. Following last month’s Captain America #25, former Captain America Steve Rogers has named the hero formerly known as The Falcon as his successor after an encounter with a villain known as The Iron Nail removed the Super Soldier serum from his blood, rendering him an old man. With a new Cap comes a new comic book series and creative team. While Captain America writer Rick Remender is staying on board, he’s joined by Stuart Immonen on pencils, Wade Von Grawbadger on inks, and Marte Garcia and Eduardo Navarro on colors.
To get a feel for what to expect, EW spoke with writer Rick Remender about Sam Wilson’s upcoming tenure as Captain America, and the reaction he’s gotten following the announcement that Wilson, and African-American character, would be taking on the role.
