This is just great comics book reading in the palm of your hands!
Man, oh, man! This book is on fire! I got a major soft spot in my fan-boy heart for WW2 era super heroes and this book lovingly takes the classic TIMELY (pre-Marvel Comics era super heroes) and gives them all new stories and exciting adventures to add onto or expand upon their classic capers!
The first story, which features my favorite Avenger of all time, Capt. America, is worth the price of admission alone with it's cool storyline and amazing art! Plus, I totally enjoyed THE ALL-WINNERS SQUAD saga and would totally love to see more of their WW2 era adventures as well. Also, THE DESTROYER comic book story was majorly bad-ass, too! This dude, THE DESTROYER, went behind enemy lines and ripped through a sea of Nazis just like extremely cold Russian weather did though evil Axis boots. It was awesome!
But, oh! It doesn't just stop there! In this book, I was pleasantly surprised that I found other classic heroes to cheer for as well... like grim and cunning, THE PHANTOM REPORTER (who kept reminding me of the WW2 DC Comics' hero, THE CRIMSON AVENGER for some reason); the dashing costumed detective, THE ANGEL, and the sexy and determined, THE BLONDE PHANTOM!
What's also cool is that this book has some amazing comic book covers/promo artwork spotlighting the heroes within this volume!...Right on!
However,though, there were a few turkeys...I mean, uh, stories that were kind of lame and should have been left out of this book like THE VISION, MARVEX:THE SUPER ROBOT (ugh! painfully bad!), an adult Bucky Barnes filling in as the new Capt. America (also painfully bad, for me, and a majorly huge turn off!...There's only one Captain America and his name is Steve "Get The Hell Out Of My Costume, Son" Rogers! Bucky Barnes should have stayed dead! It made Capt. America even more interesting to have his young partner's death on his soul!) Thus, these few stories knock a potentially five star book down to a four star rating right here on Amazon.com!
You know, I might be a hopeless Capt. America fan-boy, but I'm truly looking forward to another fantastic outing of Timely's WW2 era super heroes!
