Ed Brubaker The Return Of Captain America and Criminal Last Of The Innocent
Download The MP3 Here
Hours after the Marvel press releases told readers about a new Captain America issue one coming to coincide with the film's release, Ed Brubaker returns to Word Balloon, to give us the low down on how the book will play off characters and ideas explored in the film.
Ed talks about the Fear Itself Prologue, and provides some background plot ideas that didn't make it into the book, but further flesh out the flashback portion of the story.
Plus Ed's just wrapped up the latest Incognito arc. We discuss the story and the series future. Ed previews the return of Criminal with the new arc Last Of The Innocent, a genre mash up up of Crime, 50's teen comics, and Dr Fredrik Wertham's worst case scenarios of juvenile delinquency leading to adult deviance.
