This Week’s Finest: Captain America #698

From Captain America #698 by Chris Samnee & Matthew Wilson

by Mark Waid, Chris Samnee & Matthew Wilson

From November 2010 to March 2011 Mark Waid wrote a five issue mini series called Captain America: Man Out Of Time. It retold the story that first appeared in the pages of the original Avengers series; about how a frozen American war hero was thawed out 60 years later to fight for the Avengers. Some thought it didn’t need to be retold, however, Waid brought something new to it. The writer focused on the emotional struggles of Steve Rogers, a man realizing he can never go back to the life he once knew. Here we are in 2018 and Waid is once again telling the story of Captain America, a man out of time. Although, this time, it is Avengers Cap who has been frozen and inevitably thawed in a not so distant dumpster fire America. Waid impressed me then with Man Out Of Time and he impressed me now with Captain America #698 Out Of Time Part 1, enough to be the finest comic of the week.

Is Disney becoming Alchemax?


I tried playing a mental game last week, where charted the companies that own DC Comics upwards to the top. It went DC Comics, DC Entertainment, Warner Brothers, Time Warner, and possibly AT&T in the future. Of course I got all this wrong without the help of the internet, but I did it to illustrate how hard its become to track where our media is coming from. That becomes important because increasingly, its changing in absurd ways and everyone wants your web cookies so they can predict what you will buy next week or even next month. Take that same game that I started with, and do it with Marvel Entertainment/Lucas Films/Pixar/ and Disney. Now add 21st Century Fox to that list. It’s not a linear thread, its a spider web. One which is about to become twice as big… Continue reading Is Disney becoming Alchemax?
