Cap at his Fightin’ Best!

December 28th, 2009 by Matt

I was just re-reading those great Tales of Suspense Captain America stories in one of the latest Marvel Masterworks collections that Marvel has been energetically publishing in the last year or so. This volume collects Tales of Suspense numbers 82 thru 99, and Captain America #1. Man, they don’t make ’em like that anymore! This is Cap at his greatest with the legendary team of Jack Kirby and Stan Lee at the height of their storytelling powers. Cap leaps off the page with Kirby’s dynamic rendering and Stan keeps the drama and action plowing ahead with his great storylines.

And what storylines! This volume contains an awesome four-part Red Skull storyline with appearances by Power Man, the Swordsman, and even Bucky, Cap’s 1940’s teen partner, in a surprising twist! There is also a cool storyline where Cap gets together with the mysterious Agent Thirteen, only to…but I won’t spill the beans! Read it yourself to find out! And one of the killer stories in this series introduces the villain known as Modok. Read it to believe it! When I get the time, I’ll devote a more detailed review of this Cap volume with lots of images!

If you have never read this series from the late 1960’s, (Now DON’T give me any of that “old guy” stuff!) do yourself a favor and take a look at Marvel Masterworks Captain America Vol. 2. Tales of Wonder is one of the best places I’ve found to buy them…great prices…great customer service. What more could you want?

For all things “Marvel Masterwork”, check out this terrific website. Truly excellent!
