UPDATE: The Daily News story is up now
Captain America is back and he’s packing heat. Less than a year after the legendary star-spangled superhero was killed off in his comic book, his former teenage sidekick is being promoted to fill those big red boots in the latest issue, out Wednesday.
ICv2 rounds up plans for mainstream media coverage of the new Captain America this week. There will be a story in the NY Daily news, an appearance by Ed Brubaker on NPR on Monday morning, and a return trip by Joe Quesada to the Colbert Report on Tuesday night.
With an actual election underway, it may not be a slow news week, so who knows if news of a gun-toting Captain America will take off again?
