Kelly, Lanzing + Carnero’s final Captain America story arrives in August

‘Captain America Finale’ follows ‘Cold War’ and wraps up the conflict with the Outer Circle.

Collin Kelly, Jackson Lanzing and Carmen Carnero’s time on Captain America will come to an end in August in Captain America Finale #1, which follows the Captain America: Cold War story currently running through Marvel’s two Captain America titles.

Finale will address, according to Marvel, the “explosive aftermath” of Cold War, which features Steve Rogers, Sam Wilson and friends battling the Outer Circle and its newest member, Bucky Barnes.

Kelly, Lanzing and Carnero are the creative team for Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty, which seems to be ending, but the story on Marvel.com does not address the future of its sister title, Captain America: Symbol of Truth. My first thought was, “Is Steve Rogers dying again?” but we know he’s in the upcoming Uncanny Avengers, so I don’t think that’s the case.

‘Star’ will shine in her own miniseries

The character’s co-creator, Kelly Thompson, will write the miniseries that spins out of ‘Captain Marvel.’

After debuting in the pages of Captain Marvel earlier this year, Marvel has announced that the new hero Star will receive her own miniseries, courtesy of her co-creator, Kelly Thompson.

“With some really exceptional standouts like the creation of Miles Morales and Kamala Khan, it’s pretty hard to get traction on a new character in modern comics, so the excitement surrounding Star has been really fun to watch,” Thompson told Marvel.com.
