Kathryn Immonen talks about Captain America & The First Thirteen

Captain America and the First Thirteen features a cover by Greg Tocchini

Comic Book Resources has posted a short interview with writer Kathryn Immonen about her March shipping one-shot “Captain America and the First Thirteen“, which is being illustrated by Ramón K. Pérez.

Retailers take note: TODAY (Feb.7) is the Final Order Cut-off day for this March shipping one-shot.

What does Ramón Pérez bring to this book as an artist?

I was at TCAF a couple of years ago and Ramón, offhandedly (or so it seemed) mentioned that he’d like to work with me and I immediately mentally filed it in the “Please, Please Make That Happen” drawer. I was so happy that an opportunity came up so quickly. There’s such a classic feel to a lot of what he does and he inks with such strong blacks and directional light that there’s often the possibility for a real undercurrent of tension verging on horror, which is kind of perfect for this. And we both agree that this is all about the girls, so that’s pretty terrific.
