Marvel Unveils New Captain America Costume By Alex Ross!
Six months after the death of Steve Rogers captured national attention, Marvel is proud to unveil the new Captain America as designed by renowned, award winning artist Alex Ross! This bold new look, seen here for the first time, also serves as the variant cover to January’s Captain America #34, featuring the first appearance of this new Captain America! After the death of Steve Rogers, and the climactic events of Captain America #33, there must be a new Sentinel of Liberty and now Ross, one of the industry’s most renowned artists, has created a dynamic new look for the seminal hero.
Marvel President of Publishing Dan Buckley explained, “Captain America is one of the true iconic super heroes of our time and to design the new look for a new Cap, we had to go with the most iconic, preeminent painter of our time—Alex Ross.”
“We’re excited to have Alex Ross so heavily involved in this landmark event,” said David Gabriel, Senior Vice President of Sales & Circulation. “And we’d like to thank Dynamite Entertainment for their help in coordinating Alex’s efforts on the Captain America costume redesign and cover.”
To celebrate this landmark event, Captain America #34 will ship with two covers featuring the new Captain America—one by Ross and one by acclaimed series penciller Steve Epting! Additionally, a Captain America #34 By Alex Ross Poster will arrive in stores this January.
But just who is this new Captain America? And why did he pick this costume? The answers arrive this January in Captain America #34 featuring Alex Ross’ new costume design for Captain America and a special variant cover by the legend himself!
