I Figure By Now This Strip Isn't a Spoiler For Anyone Intending to Read Cap #25
So this pretty much exactly happened to me. I was about to read Captain America #25 when my buddy Steve IMed me a link about it. Including the punch line I swiped from Cheers, this was the least amount of effort I ever put into writing a Direman strip.
I'm seeing the issue topping out at over $50 a pop on eBay. I honestly can't believe Steve Rogers is dead and out of action permanently. He "dies" off panel (a news broadcast announces his death). Already, in Civil War: The Initiative, we hear the first claim of his survival. Regardless, I'm glad the book is getting attention. Ed Brubaker is one of the finest writers in comics, and I vehemently recommend anything he writes (aside from Uncanny X-Men; he does the whole group dynamic soap opera thing poorly). So pick up every issue of Captain America, Daredevil, and Criminal (#5 out this week) while he's still doing them.
