Beginning his career in animation working on such films as The Iron Giant, Anastasia and Titan A.E., Rick Remender has become a comic-book triple threat - writing, penciling and inking numerous fan-favorite series. Remender served as writer on hit video games Dead Space and Bulletstorm, while providing art for punk/metal bands like NOFX and 3 Inches of Blood. He's co-created many popular independent titles, including the critically acclaimed Fear Agent with longtime collaborators Tony Moore and Jerome Opeña. His time at Marvel started on Punisher and has since led to well-received runs on Uncanny X-Force and Venom.
John Romita Jr. is a modern-day comic-art master, following in his legendary father's footsteps. Timeless runs on Iron Man, Uncanny X-Men, Amazing Spider-Man and Daredevil established him as his own man artistically, and his work on Wolverine and World War Hulk is arguably the most explosive comic art of the last decade. In addition to Eternals with writer Neil Gaiman, JRJR teamed with Mark Millar on the creator-owned Kick-Ass, later developed into a blockbuster feature film starring Nicolas Cage. Spider-Man fans rejoiced at the artist's return to Amazing Spider-Man with the "Brand New Day" storylines "New Ways To Die" and "Character Assassination." He later helped relaunch Avengers with writer Brian Michael Bendis and Captain America with Rick Remender, and contributed to the blockbuster crossover Avengers vs. X-Men.
*Starred Review* Ed Brubaker’s espionage-noir interpretation of Marvel’s Captain America hit big and served as the impetus for the character’s 2014 cinematic sequel, The Winter Soldier. Facing the daunting task of following up the popular run, Remender (Tales of the Fear Agent, 2008) embraces a diametrically opposed vision, to thrilling effect. Taking his cue from Jack Kirby’s bonkers run from the 1970s, he plunges Captain America into a sci-fi universe of unrelenting dread. Trapped in Dimension Z, a world ruled by Nazi geneticist Arnim Zola, the hero battles to derail the megalomaniac’s plan to infect earth with his own crazed consciousness. Remender knows how to torture protagonists like few others, deepening Cap’s emotional investment by giving him an adopted son and tightening the vice by impregnating the hero with a growing seed of Zola’s personality. Remender’s tight, harrowing, and action-packed writing is coupled with Romita’s seasoned, savvy sequential storytelling, which here combines Kirby’s awe-inspiring dynamism with horrific imagery appropriate to a world of nightmare. The climax of the adventure (concluding from book 1) hammers Cap with one devastating blow after another, ensuring that, as things have seldom been so desperate for Marvel’s most dogged hero, he has seldom been more heroic. --Jesse Karp
