Press Release

Continuing the success of Titan Books’ Marvel fiction reissue programme, this newest entry in the series sees the first paperback publication of the Captain America story.

Super heroes survive. It’s what they do.
But so do the villains that haunt them.


Steve Rogers knows the art of survival better than most. Decades under ice will do that to a man. But the Avengers chipped more than rock-hard morality and super-strength out from under that permafrost. When Cap takes out a terrorist cell threatening to poison the world, he’ll discover a threat far more deadly. An incurable virus has hidden in his body for years—and now it’s come to the surface. To save the world, he’ll have to return to his own personal hell: deep freeze. 

And he’ll have to take an old friend with him. Having survived his own death by inhabiting a clone of Steve Rogers, the Red Skull has inherited the virus—and he’s a little less willing to play martyr. As the deadly disease shifts and evolves, new patterns emerge. Can Captain America contain the Red Skull before the virus runs rampant? 

Stefan Petrucha has written over twenty novels and hundreds of graphic novels for adults, young adults and tweens. His work has sold over a million copies worldwide. A fan of comic books, science fiction, and horror since learning to read, he soon found a love for all sorts of literature, eventually learning that the best fiction always brings you back to reality—so, really, there’s no way out.

Captain America: Dark Designs is published on 15th October.
