The thing I like best about the internet is the accuracy of information dissemination, and the speed at which bandwagons careen down a hill.
For those brave souls that went out and bought a copy of the all new Captain America #1, you probably discovered the issue was well written, beautifully drawn and a fun ride all around. For the rest of you, congratulations on believing the internet. You must be very proud.
Ty the Guy OUT!
Because I mentioned it, I have to bonus everybody with a few moments from Cap’s greatest storyline…
Amazingly enough…in the days before the internet, we didn’t set fire to copies of Man-Wolf and youtube it.
We simply endured.
Of course, back in the 70s, Marvel ACTUALLY did do a Captain America story where he became a Nazi…but it was a sort-of “evil twin” Cap (a guy who’d had surgery to look like Steve Rogers, who was more than slightly driven crazy by a cut-rate version of the Super-Soldier formula). Naturally, this story didn’t spit at Joe Simon and Jack Kirby because they were both working for DC Comics at the time.
