Writer Mark Waid and artist Chris Samnee were announced as the new "Legacy" creative team for Captain America at Comic-Con International: San Diego. Now, new details of their run are emerging (via IGN).
"It's very much a hearkening back to a more bombastic, classic era of Marvel, with a more modern feel," said Waid. "Chris [Samnee] and I are working to wed the grandeur of the Silver Age Captain America of yore with today's Steve Rogers and today's Marvel Universe, and we're having a ball."
Waid and Samnee previously worked on two volumes of Daredevil together, and teamed up again for their recently wrapped Black Widow series.
"Once Widow was wrapped, we shopped the team around and got a bunch of offers from Marvel editors," Waid said of how they landed Captain America. "Chris was way overdue for a run on an A-list Marvel hero, though, and when Cap opened up, we were thrilled to jump in. Just as our Widow run was tonally different from our Daredevil run, our Cap issues are a departure in style, mixing the best of both of our previous works, emphasizing humanity and high adventure in equal measures."
