CAPTAIN AMERICA by Wieringo CAPTAIN AMERICA by Wieringo
This is a sketch of CAPTAIN AMERICA that I did for a recent blog post to discuss his 'death' in issue #25 of his comic.

Great job! Oh, Cap, how I miss thee... I like his expression. It looks like he just found out what Ed Brubaker did to him and is planning some revenge. :) I, for one, wouldn't mind if Marvel headquarters (in the comics, not in real life) "accidentally" got trashed...or completely annihilated...by certain supervillains. >:] Mwahahahahahahahahaha!!!

Wow, this is an instant favorite. You took a simple pose and gave it power and dignity deserving of Cap. 'Course it doesn't hurt that the subject is so powerful either. As for his being dead, we'll see how it pans out. Personally I think he would be better off staying dead. It gives him the impact of a martyr. With all the Civil War stuff happening a martyr would have special signifigance and his character would not be lost. I think it might be a great way for him to go out, with tragedy of course, but with legacy and the hope that he always stood for. As for the civil war itself, I think this and the whole decimation thing is good way for Marvel to knock off some of their over abundance of superheroes. Weed out the dated and the more redundant characters if you will. Cap's death seems to legitimize the whole thing and I think he should remain the icon that this death seems to make him. Just look at your pic and you see something that is even capable of inspiring hope in the real world. That ability is good for allowing the readers to identify with the characters of the Marvel Universe. I'm stepping away from the soap box now. Sorry just had to get that off my chest.

How pathetic, they killed Cap. My feelings are hurt. Good drawing, though, Cap's quite a character, one of the best.

Great pic; I'm more a DC bug, but I really went "what?" on steve's death. Your is a good tirbute to a fine, often overlooked character (y'know, on accoutn of his allegued extreme prefectness). Very good pic. Classy and classic-looking.

<rant on>Death my ass. My guess is that this is a setup between Cap, the Punisher, and Col. Fury. Steve is going to go in hiding with Col. Fury while some poor sap (or deserving, if the Punisher takes care of the body) gets buried in his place, and in about a years time when the need is greatest he'll resurface.
Pity that he won't be able to wipe the smirk of Ton's face, because the Hulk is gonna turn Tony and Reed into fertilizer when he comes back. <rant over>
Nice drawing btw.

Uhhh... I've seen (as has many other Marvel readers) captain America 'die' many times before. He was once brought back to life by Thor (and yes he was officialy dead). And of course he's died in countless alternate realities, time travels in past and future, and brought back to life by other entities such as the Beyonder.

Great picture, Ringo! I love how you draw Cap! Always one of my favorite characters. Civil War makes a political statement about the Patriot Act, but not strong enough to justify killing Cap.

Strange take on the shield but I dig the attitude and pose of Cap. I hope they do something positive with his death and leave him dead so it's not some cheap ploy.

"Death" . . . riiiiiiiiiiiight.

Dug it when I saw it at the blog as part of the . . . uhm . . . meme. Isn't it contradictory to ANNOUNCE that it's a meme?

R.I.P. Cap. That once an amazing issue - can't wait to see where they're going with this. Issue #25 was more emotional and more important to the Marvel Universe than the entirety of Civil War, in my opinion. Mind you, without Civil War, it wouldn't have the same impact.

Great drawing btw. On the Wednesday the issue was released, I drew Cap's shield on the back of my hand - in place of a "black arm band" I guess.

This is true. But come on, the way Marvel's playing things out nowadays - it really looks like Steve Rogers is gone.

Especially considering these images released by Marvel today:

I thought the same thing when Jean Grey/Dark Phoenix got took a disentigration beam for all the good of the universe, and the people she loved most. Marvel has always brought back dead characters, or come up with cheap n' cheesy "clone clause",if nothing more for the sake of keeping a character's copyright active.

And I did check out the link as well....The Punisher as (possibly) the new C.A.? Um...I just can't see that, being as the Punisher imo took up the where the system of american justice failed, the same system the C.A. represented.
