We'll miss the mighty Steve McNiven on Marvel Comics' recently relaunched Captain America series, but it's difficult to imagine a better replacement than the legendary Alan Davis. The veteran superhero comics artist of such works as Captain Britain, Excalibur and JLA: The Nail joins writer Ed Brubaker for a brand new storyline beginning in December's Captain America #6.

Davis has only improved his craft as time goes on, and it's always a pleasure to see his reliably beautiful figures and action scenes in the classic superhero style. So of course we're especially pleased that Marvel has provided unlettered looks at Davis, inker Mark Farmer and colorist Laura Martin's pages from Captain America #6, which you can check out after the cut.

Critically acclaimed writer Ed Brubaker is joined by legendary artist Alan Davis for an important new chapter in the life of Steve Rogers. Throughout Fear Itself, Rogers has been harboring a dark secret and its one that may leave the leader of Earth's Mightiest....powerless. Can Cap and his closest allies take on the revitalized Hydra and stop them before it's too late? Find out in Captain America #6!
