Captain America returns to original numbering with 600

Marvel has found a way to double its anniversary issue pleasure with “Captain America.”   Issue #50 will be followed by issue #600, as the series returns to its original numbering.

While I realize this may be a cheap boost and hard to follow in the future, I’m excited! Legacy numbering returns!   Ed Brubaker’s run has been simply amazing, and judging from the solicit info at Newsarama, issue 600 will be no exception.

CAPTAIN AMERICA #600
Written by ED BRUBAKER with MARK WAID, ROGER STERN & OTHERS
Pencils by BUTCH GUICE, LUKE ROSS, DALE EAGLESHAM & OTHERS
Cover by STEVE EPTING
50/50 Cover by ALEX ROSS
Where were you when Captain America died? It’s the anniversary of the day Steve Rogers was killed, a day of reflection and mourning in the Marvel U…a time to look back on the things Steve did and what he stood for… or is this issue actually the beginning of the most wicked plot twist since issue 25? Yeah, actually it’s both. Plus, contributions from Cap creators past and present, including a very special essay by Joe Simon, a classic story from Cap’s Golden Age, a full gallery of 600 Cap covers, and more anniversary shenanigans than you can shake a shield at!
104 PGS./New and Reprints/Rated T+ …$4.99

I’m pumped for it already.
