Cap turns 80 this year! In celebration of the 80th anniversary of 1941’s CAPTAIN AMERICA COMICS #1 by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, Marvel is releasing a five-issue miniseries. Sure, we’ll see Steve Rogers, Sam Wilson, Bucky Barnes, and John Walker, all people who have wielded the shield. Additionally, Marvel will feature brand new characters who have taken on the moniker.
The miniseries is spearheaded by Christopher Cantwell (writer, IRON MAN) and Dale Eaglesham (artist, FANTASTIC FOUR), with other work from other writers and artists throughout the miniseries to dive into the impact that Captain America has had on the world.

The shield has been stolen! No one understands the value of the shield like those who’ve wielded it, so Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson set out on a road trip across America to chase down the thief.
But instead, they find the Captains, everyday people from all walks of life who’ve taken up the mantle of Captain America to defend their communities. And for some reason, the shield thief wants them all dead. Can Sam and Steve get to them first?
Christopher Cantwell and Dale Eaglesham lead a can’t-miss miniseries to celebrate Captain America’s 80th Anniversary, joined by a rotating series of creative teams to tell the stories of each new Captain-starting with Aaron Fischer, the Captain America of the railways, brought to life by Josh Trujillo and Jan Bazaldua!
