New printing. Collects #1-12, 1941-42. Highly Recommended. By Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, Syd Shores and Al Avison. Here are the monumental first dozen wild issues that created and defined Captain America, created in the midst of World War II. Plus more than previous collections (and less expensive): S&K left with #10, but the talents that carried Cap on did an outstanding job. Issues #11 and 12 include art by the great Syd Shores as well as the excellent Al Avison who continued to work on Cap all throughout the 1940s. Cap tried to hide his fighting alter-ego behind the disguise of a lowly Army private, while fighting Hitler, Nazis and the Japanese, and all manner of baddies including the Red Skull. But a big part of these fat 64-page issues was also horror and monsters to be dealt with, like a superhero version of Tales from the Crypt!! Marvel, 2021. Condition: Bumped corners.

Description

Here are the monumental first dozen wild issues that created and defined Captain America, created in the midst of World War II. Plus more than previous collections (and less expensive): S&K left with #10, but the talents that carried Cap on did an outstanding job. Issues #11 and 12 include art by the great Syd Shores as well as the excellent Al Avison who continued to work on Cap all throughout the 1940s. Cap tried to hide his fighting alter-ego behind the disguise of a lowly Army private, while fighting Hitler, Nazis and the Japanese, and all manner of baddies including the Red Skull. But a big part of these fat 64-page issues was also horror and monsters to be dealt with, like a superhero version of Tales from the Crypt!!

This was all a decade before horror comics would take over the comics world. But for Simon and Kirby, witches, madmen and monsters were a regular part of Cap’s early adventures.

Steve Rogers might have been the prototypical 98-pound weakling, but that wasn’t going to stop him from serving his country. Transformed by the Super-Soldier Serum into America’s No. 1 fighting man, he became a symbol of patriotism, hope and perseverance on the eve of the nation’s entrance into World War II.

A deluxe, oversized and remastered package. You’ll meet Bucky Barnes and the Red Skull for the first time, behold Simon and Kirby’s trend-setting brand of storytelling — and even read Stan Lee’s very first comic-book tale!

Condition: Bumped corners.
