Two men hold up shield

Captain America: Who Won't Wield The Shield? #1, by Jason Aaron, Matt Fraction, Stuart Moore, Marco Peirfederici, Brendan McCarthy, Joe Quinones

I'm guessing this is some kind of tie-in to some big Captain America story about them having to find a new Captain America because something unfortunate happened to the old one. It's all a bit silly, with the Red Skull sending a rubbish villain to take out Ed Brubaker, hot shot writer of Captain America (and other actually good titles that do not involve him committing crimes against comics like bringing iconic long dead characters like Bucky back to life as travesties of their former selves). I mainly bought it because one of the stub stories within it is drawn by Brendan McCarthy, featuring a weird hybrid of the Captain and Doctor Strange (who ends up falling foul of Kithotep, the Cosmic Kitten). Seeing McCarthy's crazy psychedelic art took me right back – what is he doing these days and why is he not all over the world of comics?
