Marvel announced in The Atlantic writer Ta-Nehisi Coates and artist Leinil Yu for a new CAPTAIN AMERICA #1.

The next volume follows Steve Rogers aka Hydra Cap in SECRET EMPIRE and his search for redemption and upcoming 700th milestone issue.

Coates breathed new life into Black Panther. Now he’s turning to the First Avenger.

“I think it’s a really exciting time to be writing CAPTAIN AMERICA right now,” says Coates, “The country is in an interesting place, and I look forward to inhabiting Steve Rogers’ character—this guy who has been a sort of awkward fit for the world, ‘out of time’ as people say. I hope fans are excited to see something different, and I think there are some really compelling villains old school Captain America fans and Marvel fans will be familiar with.”

The new CAPTAIN AMERICA previews this May in Marvel’s Free Comic Book Day CAPTAIN AMERICA comic by Ta-Nehisi Coates and Lenil Yu, available on May 5th then CAPTAIN AMERICA #1 arrives July 4th.
