Ultimate Comics Captain America #1 preview

Marvel Comics has provided a preview of “Ultimate Comics Captain America” #1, by Jason Aaron and Ron Garney.   Garney is of course known for his popular 1990s run on “Captain America” with writer Mark Waid.   Aaron is one of the best modern Marvel writers, with books like “Ghost Rider” and “Wolverine: Weapon X” (where he worked with Garney) to his credit.

I thought the “Weapon X” run by Aaron and Garney was woefully underappreciated, and I look forward to seeing their take on Cap.  I’m not as big a fan of “Ultimate” Cap as I am the Marvel Universe version, but this is a strong creative team.  The comic will be released in stores and on the Marvel app on Jan. 5.

Here’s how Marvel describes the story: The Super Soldier project was a secret and mysterious undertaking that took a frail young man named Steve Rogers and forged him into the Captain America of World War II…but Rogers wasn’t the only one to emerge from the program. Enter the Captain America of the Vietnam War! Prepare for a battle between two Captain Americas…and only one living legend is walking away!

Click past the cut for the preview.
