Loeb & Sale's Long-Delayed "Captain America: White" Scheduled for September

Originally announced in 2008, "Captain America: White" is now officially on its way to readers. Marvel.com announced Friday that issues #1 and #2 of the long-awaited Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale collaboration are scheduled for release this September.

"This is a very special project to me, something that I can honestly say is a career highlight," series editor Mark Paniccia said in the announcement. "Jeph and Tim put their hearts and souls into this series and have produced -- along with color guru Dave Stewart and the design geniuses at Comiccraft -- what I think the best of their iconic collaborations."

A #0 issue came out later in 2008 and will be reprinted inside of September's issue #1, but the rest of the series has yet to been released.

Along with the announcement, Marvel released a new, colored preview of "Captain America: White" #1:

Loeb and Sale have worked together on many acclaimed miniseries over the years at both Marvel Comics and DC Comics, including "Batman: The Long Halloween" and "Daredevil: Yellow." In recent years, Loeb's comic book output has been limited due to his position as Head of Marvel Television.

"Captain America: White" was first revealed in March 2008. Like Loeb and Sale's prior Marvel projects, it's set to focus on the early days of Cap's superhero career. A #0 issue came out later in 2008, but the rest of the series has yet to been released.

Here's the solicitation info for the first two issues:
