This volume reprints the first 23 of Captain America's Marvel Age appearances in `Tales to Astonish' issues #59-81 from November 1964 to September 1966. It may sound a lot, but he shared the title with Iron Man, so he only got half the story pages. These stories are written by Stan Lee and mainly drawn by Jack Kirby, with two each credited to Dick Ayers, George Tuska and John Romita. The stories start off with Cap in the modern world, having been recovered by the Avengers from his long sleep in a block of ice. After four issues however, we are back in World War 2, where amongst other things, we eventually discover the Secret Origin of the Red Skull. From issue #72 we are back in the modern world of 1965 when "The Sleeper Awakes", beginning one of the epic adventures of the day; and the volume ends with Cap joining SHIELD and the return of the Red Skull to the modern age, not to mention the first appearance of the Cosmic Cube. There is continuous excitement from the dawn of the Marvel Age, with characters that are still with us today - highly recommended.
