Captain America – The Chosen #5

Writer: David Morrell, Artist: Mitch Breitweiser, Colors:Brian Reber

Mitch Breitweiser is on fire with this series. This panel has some fabulous visual storytelling. The depth of the that cave is told, I think, by the black cliff silhouette; and the falling stones add tension. The color fade pushes the drama with the light coming from below.

I also like the way Cap’s legs fade out as if in fog, or is it because he is a ghost? Breitweiser’s drawings have kept it ambiguous throughout.

I think it is a gorgeous panel alone, but in context of the story it really succeeds in exposing Jimmy’s mounting anxiety.
