I thought Marc did a particularly stellar job with the inking and the coloring of this strip. Especially in that last panel, where you can really feel Cap’s pain.

Cap was one of those characters where I had to really work out in detail the journey he’d taken during the missing year. Obviously, it was somethin’ else. I actually started with the scene you see today and then worked my way backwards. How or when you’ll see all that backstory remains to be seen (don’t worry, it’s coming). I think we’re all far more interested in what happens next, right? Right?

Plan on heading back here tomorrow to see another close look at one of the new characters Marc designed just for One Year Later!
