Marvel has announced a new original graphic novel, “Captain America: The Ghost Army,” will be coming next summer from writer Alan Gratz and artist Brent Schoonover.

  • Marvel is teaming with Scholastic's Graphix! Imprint for the new YA original graphic novel from Gratz and Schoonover.
  • In the thrilling historical adventure “Captain America: The Ghost Army,” 18 year-old Steve Rogers (Captain America) and his young sidekick, Bucky Barnes, encounter a threat like none they've ever met while fighting the Nazis in the dark forests of Transylvania — a Ghost Army.
  • The dead of this war and wars past are coming back to life, impervious to bullets, flames, or anything else the Allies can throw at them. The armies rise from the ground in the night and seem to disappear without a trace.
  • Marvel also shared a look at some character sketches for the upcoming graphic novel:

What they’re saying:

  • Writer Alan Gratz: "As a life-long comics reader, I'm incredibly excited to be writing for Marvel, and for Captain America specifically. Ed Brubaker's work on ‘Captain America’ is one of my all-time favorite books, particularly his now-iconic ‘Winter Soldier’ storyline. One of the things I most loved about that run was the flashbacks he gave us of Cap and Bucky fighting alongside each other in World War II, and it's that youthful spirit of camaraderie and heroism I'm trying to recapture in ‘Captain America: The Ghost Army.’"
  • Sven Larsen, vice president, Licensed Publishing at Marvel: "Captain America: The Ghost Army is a perfect example of how Marvel storytelling can open exciting new doors into the context and influence of history. Captain America has been one of our most iconic characters across the decades, and seeing Alan Gratz and Brent Schoonover bring the earlier years of Steve Rogers' career to life has been incredible. Like all of our original graphic novels with Scholastic, we hope this story will introduce both new and loyal fans to some of our most inspirational characters, and to a time where Cap, along with Bucky Barnes, interacts with real-life history and heroism in a thrilling new way."
