Frozen in a glacier some time after dinner during the twenty-first century, iFanboy user, Akamuu, is trying to acclimate back into society. He never liked Myspace, but, aside from that, had trouble identifying with the so called Captain America. Join him this week as he forays into both Captain America and Captain America & Hawkeye. Which version is better, and which looks like it was modeled after Roseanne era John Goodman?

Alessandro Vitti’s Captain America has been spending much less time at the gym than Alan Davis’s. It looks like that Cap has been busy scarfing down Hostess treats and drinking cola by the liter-full. There’s also that uncomfortable issue of all the men having chiseled features while the women have completely flat faces that smooth down to the neck with no discernible chin and no nose just nostrils. It’s not bad, it’s just…unusual.

Most of Captain America & Hawkeye seems to fall into the “not bad, just…unusual” category. Avengers vs. Dinosaurs, uncomfortable Clint/Steve banter dinosaurs.

Captain America is more familiar territory. Hydra. One of the heros is brainwashed. Iron Man invents stuff. Capt America is a standup guy.

Both of these titles have good stories and yet I still can’t get myself excited about Cap. Can anyone recommend a Captain America run that isn’t Brubaker (I like Brubaker, just…I’d like a non-Brubaker one…possibly with less ellipses than this review) (and less parenthetical statements)?

This issue was fun, and I like that is really just a Marvel Team Up Book starring Captain America and whoever the writer wants to slap on the title with him.

  1. Mark Waid’s Captain America was quite good…I haven’t read it all yet, but I really enjoyed what I did.

  2. The Waid/Garney stuff was pretty good, for the most part.
