    The fifties revival of Captain America was so short lived that Marvel had to eke out this collection with an undistinguished 2008 one shot SET in the fifties.I had always been fascinated by Steve Englehart s retcon just how did Cap have a brief career fighting commies if he was frozen And I even remember reading one of these stories out of a teacher s study hall comic So when I heard about this collection I considered it my own little wish granted.The art, which is by a young John Romita, is The fifties revival of Captain America was so short lived that Marvel had to eke out this collection with an undistinguished 2008 one shot SET in the fifties.I had always been fascinated by Steve Englehart s retcon just how did Cap have a brief career fighting commies if he was frozen And I even remember reading one of these stories out of a teacher s study hall comic So when I heard about this collection I considered it my own little wish granted.The art, which is by a young John Romita, is not as slick as his 60s work on Spider Man In fact, it has as much of an EC horror or crime comics vibe, as what we would consider Silver Age superhero style Which makes it kind of interesting The stories, by anonymous Stan Lee denied any memory of writing them , are simplistic, with a gruesome flourish now and then

    A perfect book if you like to pump up your comics andpolitical propaganda portfolio The early 50s and the McCarthy led Red Scare is aninteresting chunk of Americana Having a nation that just won WWII fall intosuch paranoia over the rise of communism is something that we only get to see thru movies and tv shows But these Captain America issues, being a part of that history, shine a uniqe light on the matter It s one thing to hear about McCarthy era propaganda, it s another to actually consu A perfect book if you like to pump up your comics andpolitical propaganda portfolio The early 50s and the McCarthy led Red Scare is aninteresting chunk of Americana Having a nation that just won WWII fall intosuch paranoia over the rise of communism is something that we only get to see thru movies and tv shows But these Captain America issues, being a part of that history, shine a uniqe light on the matter It s one thing to hear about McCarthy era propaganda, it s another to actually consume it.This collection is not for everyone Captain America fans mightlike it Some due to the vacum contanment of this era s character development which was sweeped under the rug for decades after Others thanks to one of the greatest retcons in comic book history see Captain America Epic Collection Hero or Hoax If this does not describe you then you might not like thisbook The plots are extremely shallow, pointless and with noeffort by the author s to add any value except cheep populistic propaganda.Some of the stories border parody a boy regains his sight because Cap fightscommunists Every sentance reads like it was written by McCarthy s presssecretary The art is bellow the period s standard Romita sr a Marvel hall offamer and one of my personal favorite authors , does not shine here All this being said I loved it A beautiful love letter toan era when comics were in the gutter, with a character that could not be wrong for the part

    Good art, but the 50s Cap stories are jingoistically cringeworthy and blatant Red Scare propaganda.
