In some of the most impactful and iconic comics in history, tragedy befalls the Marvel Universe with the death of Captain America!

A battle to save London from the Red Skull reunites Steve Rogers with one old friend, the Winter Soldier — but the Superhuman Registration Act tears him apart from another, Iron Man! As Steve’s allies find their loyalties divided, Captain America’s life is torn apart — and, when the Civil War is over, it is taken from him! With Steve shot down in cold blood, the Falcon seeks revenge, Sharon Carter spirals out of control and Bucky Barnes must reconcile his own sordid past with the need to seek justice! And as the world reels from this tragedy, the Skull and his minions — including Sin, Crossbones and a new Serpent Squad — put their deadliest plan into motion!

Ed Brubaker is one of the most acclaimed writers in comics, a multiple Eisner Award winner. Following fan-favorite runs on Scene of the Crime, Sleeper, Catwoman and Gotham Central for DC, he moved to Marvel. His Captain America relaunch, in which he controversially revived Bucky Barnes as the Winter Soldier, won over fans new and old, and his revisionist take on the history of Marvel’s mutants in X-Men: Deadly Genesis resulted in a regular gig on Uncanny X-Men, Marvel’s flagship X-title. He and longtime artistic collaborator Michael Lark took up the baton on Daredevil after Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev’s legendary run concluded, and Brubaker jump-started Immortal Iron Fist with co-writer Matt Fraction and artist David Aja. Marvel’s Icon imprint published Brubaker’s creator-owned Criminal and Incognito, and he has gone on to further success at Image Comics with such titles as Fatale, Velvet and The Fade Out. Beyond comics, Brubaker has written for TV’s Westworld and co-created the crime drama Too Old to Die Young.

With a career stretching back to First Comics, Steve Epting made his name at Marvel with an eminent fifty-issue run on Avengers during the mid-’90s. He also contributed to Factor X, part of the "Age of Apocalypse" event. After working with writers Mark Waid and Chuck Dixon on various CrossGen titles, Epting returned to Marvel to embark on his first collaboration with writer Ed Brubaker on what turned out to be one of the all-time great Captain America runs. The pair also united for the Golden Age-era miniseries The Marvels Project. Epting’s work with writer Jonathan Hickman includes the much-publicized death of the Human Torch in an epic run of Fantastic Four.

Mike Perkins is an illustrator for Marvel Comics having previously worked on Captain America, X-Men and Thor. After wrapping up the 31-issue adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand, he went on to illustrate Astonishing X-Men. Perkins has been nominated numerous times for Eisner and Harvey Awards and, as well as winning the Eagle Award, counts being on the New York Times Best-Seller List among his career achievements.

Lee Weeks is an acclaimed penciler who has illustrated runs on Daredevil and Incredible Hulk. Among his extensive Marvel credits are Civil War and World War Hulk tie-ins, Fantastic Four and Invaders one-shots, and multiple Spider-Man series — including the web-slinger’s team-up with Daredevil in the Mysterio Manifesto. Weeks provided both script and artwork for Spider-Man: Death and Destiny, which revisited the death of Gwen Stacy, and has written stories for various Marvel anthologies. Elsewhere, he has illustrated Dark Horse’s Comics’ Greatest World, Eclipse’s New DNAgents and more.
