For all that Remender tends to default to killing characters to make his books shocking and thus likely to get better sales numbers, he’s been doing an abysmal job with Captain America. Readership of the comic dropped by over 50 percent between issues 1 and 3 (form 123,667 sales of issue 1 to 59,836 sales of issue 3), and dropped nearly another 50 percent between issue 2’s 64,377 sales and issue 12’s 38,684 sales. That’s a drop in readership of almost 70 percent from issue 1 to issue 12. In October of 2013, Captain America sales were outsold by titles such as Deadpool Kills Deadpool, Kick-Ass, Hawkeye, Superior Spider-Man Team Up Special, and the interestingly named Afterlife with Archie. One of Marvel’s flagship titles was outsold by a comic about Deadpool killing alternate versions of himself and something named Afterlife with Archie. Clearly, whatever Rick Remender is trying to sell us in Captain America, fewer and fewer people are buying it.

Okay but seriously Deadpool Kills Deadpool and Hawkeye are brilliant. Like, say what you want about Captain America sucking and I won’t correct you because you’re not wrong, as much as it hurts to say that, but there’s no shame in losing to Deadpool Kills Deadpool.
I can’t speak to Afterlife With Archie but now I kind of want to pick it up.

"God, I don’t even know where to start. I’m here. I’m here for you, okay? No matter what. You can scream and you can yell and be as mean and self-destructive as you want. Because I know you’re going to be here for me when it’s my turn to fall apart. Let them come, Clint. Let every one of those tracksuit-wearing sub-verbal bullying scumbags come at us. Because you and me? Together? Together, Clint, I think you and me are the person we both wish we could be. And I know that person is worth something. I know that person can pretty much do anything."
So are we gonna talk about this or…..
