drive-by readings: Captain America: Reborn #1

holy crap! i'm alive again!
Captain America: Reborn #1 (Marvel)
"In Rage and Blood and Fire"
Ed Brubaker
Bryan Hitch
Butch Guice
Paul Mounts
Joe Caramagna
Alex Ross (cover)
right in time for the 4th of July, Steve Rogers is back! or is he really? i guess the answer's yes and no. somehow it makes sense (or is it just my blind trust in all things Brubaker?), and i can't say the same for all the other fans who may feel shortchanged after the end of Civil War. true, the meaning of his passing (and all those tears shed) may have been tarnished now, but hey, let's wait and see where Bru goes with this. is it going to be like Bruce Wayne's eventual return to reclaim the mantle of the Bat (you know that's coming)? or will Bucky be the permanent Captain from hereon? maybe Rogers will be back, and he'll pass the baton on to Bucky. officially this time. that being said, damn you Nazis!!!
