- Full Description
He made his debut in late 1940 in Captain America Comics, fighting Nazis at every turn. Twenty years after World War II, he was found frozen in ice. Now a man living in the wrong time, he became the leader of the Avengers, and fought some of the Marvel Universe’s greatest villains: Red Skull, Baron Zemo, MODOK—and even Cap’s former sidekick, now known as the Winter Soldier. With 192 pages of images, and text by Roy Thomas, The Little Book of Captain America is your ultimate guide to comics’ greatest super patriot!
Filled with fun covers, splash pages, inside pages, plus special items like pin-up pages, poster art, original art, even a button.
Roy of course was once Stan Lee's right hand man and editor, and today continues to both write occasionally for comics, as well as edit the fine magazine Alter Ego. If there is anyone who can do justice to distilling Cap's career into 198 well-illustrated pages, Roy is the man!
Lots of unusual art here, with work by Jack Kirby, Jim Steranko, Sal Buscema, Alex Schomberg, Ray Lago, Alex Ross, Barry Windsor-Smith, etal. Roy does a fine job of choosing unusual images, including some stunning Steranko pieces.
