New America by dfridolfs New America by dfridolfs
Like him or hate him, I thought it would be fun to draw the new Captain America design that Alex Ross helped create. Normally I hate redesigns, but for some reason....I don't mind this one. Or at least I'm impartial to it. It keeps some of the things that we associate with Cap (the shield, wings, red white & blue). And maybe I'm just reading into it, but it sort of has an almost pulp feel to him...like something from the era of The Shadow. Maybe it's just the black in his uniform and the gun.

Anyways I think it's kind of an interesting look. Plus I like how they incorporated the old shield design shape into his chest. Might be a bit too shiny and glossy and beetle borgish on the metal finish they decided to go with. But no prob.

Of course for all the haters, the classic Cap will be back eventually. And we also have the Ultimates version. Until then...here ya go.

As much as I'll never really come 'round to a gun-toting Cap, I do love the dynamic pose you've put him in.

I'm also kind of... *shrug* on the redesign. It's got its good points and it's less-good points.

I do like the new Cap costume. Beautifully rendered here. Capturing it's shiny feel. I sense a bit of a Bruce Timm influence as well.

A Plus.

Im open to what theyre doin but i know hes not comin back, seein as theyve made every stop to let us know its not a joke and hes really dead. maybe we'll see him again but he'll never be the same old cap.

Well, he's definitely coming back- the Captain America property is too valuable (from a merchandising aspect) to allow it to simply disappear. What will happen is that although they've "killed" Steve Rodgers, they'll go back in time and get him or clone him or Mephisto will resurrect him and that will be that.

Don't believe anything that's said by editors. Because as surely as the sky is blue there'll be another editorial team that will replace the current one that will want the "real" Steve Rodgers and the circle of bullshit continues...

haha you got me there. i just think maybe joe quesada posted a note " Steve Rogers stays dead" to all captain america workers. but i could see a story line like the ones you said, still would never be the same as it was though... the captain america story that has come from it is pretty good though, just wish they hadnt killed steve...

Ah well. It's the nature of comics these days to be "event" driven to garner sales for floundering titles (like Captain America, which has never really been a top-seller like Spider-Man or X-Men). But your nostalgic lamentation speaks to the dynamic of your own personal growth- as time passes we become progressively more sentimental about certain things and have them clearly defined in our minds in a certain way, when we see folks come along and "fuck" with them (lol) we are disenchanted and long for the "good ol' days" when it was a truer reflection of what we thought it was...

But while we wax nostalgic over the Steve Rodgers of yesteryear, there's some older fuck that thinks our version is a watered-down version of something else... and the cycle of us bullshitting ourselves continues...

Forgive my verbosity- I don't get out much! :-)

ciao!

very well said. I know alot of ppl were outraged but many other were happy they finally killed him which i think is bullshit, but ppl have different opinions. Maybe it was time for a new cap but i wouldnt have minded at all if steve was always there. They kinda forgot the iconic status cap had when they killed him, as was expressed by ed brubaker, that he was surprised so many ppl cared. What he stood for is what makes his death so relevant. But i guess you gotta let go of somethings sometimes, Steve will always be the one true captain and now i will be the older fuck that thinks this version is a watered down Steve Rogers Captain America. ;-)
