Fans of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale’s series of “color” stories (Spider-Man: Blue, Daredevil: Yellow, Hulk: Gray) have been waiting for their next installment in the series for a long time, Captain America: White, ever since it was first announced. We have only seen one issue, the #0 issue which saw print in July of 2008, but we haven’t seen anything since.
However, at Marvel’s Cup O Joe panel Saturday at the 2010 New York Comic Con, Loeb said that work is still going ahead on the series, and that Tim Sale is still drawing. Loeb said that they are waiting for all the issues to be completed and that Sale is basically painting every page. Loeb also said that they plan to have the series out in time for the Captain America movie.
This is a book that I have been looking forward to for a long time, so I was excited to hear that they still plan on releasing it at some point. The only problem will be if the series will live up to the anticipation of two years of waiting.
One other connected piece of information to this story is that they now have plans for another story in the “colors” series. He didn’t say which character would be done next, but the person asking about it brought up the possibility of Iron Man: Gold, and Loeb did not discount that idea, so it may be next or it might not be. We’ll just have to wait and see.
