Review - Captain America: White #1

I’ve been waiting for Captain America: White for a long time. Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale have been my favorite collaborative team for the last eight years, which is when I first read Batman: The Long Halloween. Although I may not have known the title of this series, the premise, or even the characters involved, this is exactly the story I’ve been waiting for since finishing this team’s first masterpiece.

This article contains NO spoilers.

 
I say “collaborative team” because that is the only way to describe this duo. While most comics define a writer and an artist, this book credits “Storytellers Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale.” As with all of their books, the writing cannot be separated from the art nor vice-versa. The two elements work in harmony as an immersive experience that leaves your emotional response in the team’s custody. This effect is accomplished perfectly throughout the rest of the “colors” collection, where the color itself represents the theme of the story. Daredevil: Yellow (a color representing cowardice) focuses on the roots and control of fear, Spider-Man: Blue (sadness) centers on Peter being forced into his new life as a superhero and the sorrow he feels from not being able to date Gwen Stacy, and Hulk: Gray (ambiguity) analyzes the morals of Hulk’s actions and Gen. Ross’s struggle to categorize the Hulk in a world he views as black and white. So why Captain America: White?
