Race Riot In New York City Breaks Out In Next Week's Captain America From Marvel Comics


CBR ran a preview of Captain America: Sam Wilson #20, out next week. The previous issue saw Rage, a black teenage superhero arrested, charged and convicted for robbery after surveillance footage proving his innocence, and that he was trying to stop the bank robbers, was deemed inadmissible. The comic also highlighted poor resources available to public defence and the increased role of corporate concerns in public life. The narrative led an audience by the hand that may otherwise disdain any such violence against the state, through the many steps of attrition that make a full blown riot understandable.

Captain America: Sam Wilson #20 by Nick Spencer and Daniel Acuña takes that next step. Out on Wednesday.
