    1. Things I ve learned about Captain America and 1941 1 0.10 can get you a lot A a comic of Captain America B a real official badge and membership card to Captain America s Sentinels of Liberty C a picture show to see Sando and Omar Predict the Future 2 Villains always hide at the abandoned house on Peek street 3 Don t kill the kid sidekick wait until the much stronger superhero shows up so you can get points for a double kill.4 You can always spot a Nazi when he s dressed in regular clothes becau [...]


    2. Bought the Kindle version when it was VERY cheap something like 1.50 , and still feel a little ripped off.When I was a kid, I was fascinated by the few golden age reprints available e.g The Great Comic Book Heroes and thought there were vast quantities of great art and stories only available to millionaires But underneath the cream, the milk is very skim indeed.Red Skull Joker Capt America BatmanIf early Kirby art has anything going for it, it is the grotesqueness of his villains.


    3. This volume collects the first four issues of Captain America The real, original, first Captain America from 1941 by Simon and Kirby with some two page prose novelettes by Stan Lee This isn t the Cap you re used to heck, it probably isn t even your father s Captain America, you may have to go back another generation or two The stories are simple, implausible, and obviously kid targeted, the art is rougher than you might expect, and the characters are either all good or all bad with no middle gro [...]


    4. There is something charming about the simplicity of Golden Age comics There was no question these were intended for children, with simple plots and an almost total disregard for character development It s interesting to go back to a character like Captain America and see how he got his start versus how the character is written these days Instead of an army captain in Europe Captain America is actually a stateside private who with his kid sidekick Bucky foils saboteurs and spies like the Red Skul [...]


    5. Kindle version is lackingThis was the first Marvel Masterworks edition that I ve purchased for the Kindle Fire, and while the art reproduction is up to snuff, it s a very staid book if you don t have a Fire or a touchscreen device, you will be kind of screwed for seeing the detail of the artwork The Kindle version is also missing the book s introduction and any creators credits, which is an unforgivable omission to any golden age fan or comic historian.I think I will stick to the print version o [...]


    6. Golden age indeed as a lifetime supply of yellow was used in these early comics.Set in the early days of World War 2, the U.S hasn t yet joined the fight but fear the country is simply riddled with spies Thus Captain America was created to protect our shores from ugly men vith tick German aksents, jawohl Joining the Captain in his fight against the Fifth Column is Child Endangerment Poster Boy a.k.a Bucky.When he s not the Captain, our hero is Private Steve Rogers He must keep his hero identity [...]


    7. This was actually a lot of fun This collects the first four issues of Captain America, from when it was originally published during World War II by Timely comics a Marvel comics precursor Of course, being written in 1941 at a time when America was actively at war with Germany and Japan, there is a lot of casual racism here, and than a little casual sexism, as well If you are prepared for that, though, there are some fun stories here, including a bunch of backup stories that really don t have a [...]


    8. An interesting look back at the early Captain America Unfortunately they descend quickly into sillyness and the racial stereotypes of the time, also Kirby and Simon s artwork is not going to be quite up to the high standard we would see later More interesting for historical purposes.


    9. This was pretty fun and I feel like these issues mostly hold up well Captain America 1 has a bit of a shaky start, since it has to introduce a bunch of characters and concepts fairly quickly, and also has some problems with flow and panel placement but once we ve established who Cap and Bucky are, they re allowed to get on with one Nazi punching adventure after another Some of them are fairly mundane, involving counterfeiters disguised as ghosts or fake beggars raising funds for Hitler Some of t [...]


    10. An interesting study in adaptation, but first, the reprints themselves The Simon Kirby stories have an energy and pace that sets them above those of other characters in this era The character has a great design and so looks great in his adventures.The adventures are another story, and those stories are closely informed by the plots, adversaries, and gimmicks of the pulp magazines published by the same company many elements are lurid and ridiculous, but will satisfy those pleased by the luridness [...]


    11. I d call it good old fashioned comics but good doesn t really apply, and old fashioned is rather a given This Masterworks gives you the first appearances of Captain America and Bucky in the first four issues of Captain America Comics Unlike the DC Archives books, this gives you nearly everything from the original comics they seem to have skipped all but the in house advertisements in decently restored form warts and all, given that there s a few lettering mistakes and a few art mistakes at one p [...]


    12. I love getting a glimpse into these golden age comics It occurs to me that Steve Rogers is the worst soldier ever, but nobody seems to notice that he s awful until he comes back to camp from one of his Captain America adventures And nobody notices that the same two soldiers always leave camp at the same time that two superheroes are saving folks Ok, ok suspension of belief I guess There s a lovely super misogynistic edition of The Hurricane in this collection in which a lady scientist what Ladie [...]


    13. Maybe 3 stars is a little harsh This is comics history and you read it as such, but the reality is that Captain America was very simplistic, cartoon, US WWII propaganda What had made him endure are the seeds of some very interesting ideas which have grown and taken him far beyond just that So it s an average score because as you d expect, the stories and art don t hold up for the modern reader, but it does make for fascinating reading, particularly some of the stories surrounding his creation.


    14. Captain America 1 4, March through June 1941, complete including a two page text story and shorts featuring Tuk the Cave Boy and Hurricane Son of Thor in each issue A fascinating look back at popular culture and pre war propaganda The stories feature Cap and Bucky versus a typical assortment of bad guys couterfeiters, fake beggars, mad scientists and the like, as well as the Red Skull but they are all Nazis and speak with very bad accents.


    15. It s a little difficult to judge this collection of comics based on the stories alone The stories are dated and I m not familiar enough with the golden age of comics to compare them to other works What did amaze me was Kirby and Simon s artwork the bold colors, the creative layouts, the way the characters burst from the panels and the expressive use of action While comic book art has evolved over the years, it s easy to see why these guys were such game changers of the genre.


    16. A little campy, but really interesting to see how Captain America started out These were written in 1940 and were gutsy enough to address Hitler s nazis Even if someone isn t a comic book fan, this would be an interesting thing to take a look at There are even some other comic stories presented in the book.


    17. Really hard to decide on a rating for this one I feel you can t expect the Golden Age to adhere to the standards of our Modern Age sensibilities It s important too to keep in mind its importance to the time periodhhh it s tough Overall it was alright, so I ll go with a solid 3.


    18. What s not to like about Captain America punching Hitler in the face The cover is probably the greatest thing ever The comics contained within are kind of weird if you are accustomed to modern comics, but kind of fun from a historical perspective.


    19. Captain America and Bucky in all their patriotic glory Looks a little bit like a Batman knockoff with a patriotic theme at times, but some very fun stories One of the key highlights in the introduction of the Red Skull who is very different from later incarnations.


    20. This is a reprint of the first 4 issues of Captain America The stories are dated as they were written over 70 years ago But, it is great to see these early adventures of Cap It is also cool to see the original shiled in action They explain in the introduction, the history behind the change.



    21. Kitchy as hell, but I ve read worse These Golden Age tales of Cap during World War II were pretty much what I expected, filled with zenophobic mistrust and racial stereotypes.


    22. I m in the process of reading as many Cap comics I can get my hands on, starting at the beginning And this is me only counting them as one book on my challenge.




    23. Simon and Kirby at their collaborative best The strips don t all age very well, but their bravado and energy is undeniable.



    24. Reading these original comics from the 1940 s was an absolute blast Can t wait to get my hands on of the Golden Age Comics
