Captain America Hits Issue #50

What will this "landmark" issue bring?
It's hard to believe that we're at issue already. I remember when Brubaker and Epting started this series. I'll admit I was a little put off that they re-numbered the series...again. I was surprised when the Red Skull got shot. The series has been pretty solid for fifty issues now. The scary and exciting thing is, you know Brubaker and artist Luke Ross are bound to have something up their sleeves for this issue.
Someone is trying to kill Captain America. It's Bucky's birthday and he's stuck thinking about his past. Word is something is going to be revealed about his past. Along with the main story, there's also a fourteen page story that recaps Cap's life. As if that wasn't enough, the awesome Fred Hembeck is also doing a story on the "forgotten Captain America."
Issue #50 is on sale May 20, 2009. Then we travel through time (okay, not really) as the series jumps to issue #600 on June 17 and #601 on July 15. Here's a preview for issue #50. Click each image to enlarge.
