This massive book collects one of his biggest stories, some say his magnum opus, which features a NEW Captain America! Fantastic writing, superb and moody art and appearances from almost all of Captain America's fantastic supporting cast. This book is a must have.
The story goes that the Commission for Superhuman Activities, unhappy with the amount of autonomy that Captain America (Steve Rogers) has, and wanting a star-spangled hero who is more representitive and sympathetic to their goals and what they consider the goals of the United States of America - and of course also obligated to follow their orders - they give Rogers and ultimatum: As the abilities, name, costume and shield of Captain America are the property of the United States government, work for us or cease operating as Captain America altogether.
Naturally the stoic Rogers - unhappy that he should be forced to choose which American interests to represent rather than simply representing ALL Americans - refuses the Commissions deal and resigns immediately from the role of Captain America, handing in his shield and costume.Read more ›
The pencils and inks are really solid, and the storytelling through the art flowed really well panel-to-panel.
Mark Gruenwald plot represents fine superhero storytelling. Gruenwald's Captain America stories provided the comic book action that all fans crave, but they also
contained a healthy amount of social commentary to elevate the book into something more.
One of the great Cap Sagas of all time.
