An anthology of Captain America "one-shot" stories by a number of different writers and artists, similar to Captain America: Theater of War. A decent anthology overall; I am going to review and score each story individually.

1.) "Operation: Zero Point" - In this tale, set during World War II, Captain America must infiltrate a secret Nazi research facility that is building anti-gravity flying saucers powered by "zero-point energy". The art is solid, and the muted colors really help set the mood. T
There are actually three stories here. The first was probably the one I enjoyed the most. A WWII Cap story where he goes behind enemy lines to rescue a scientist trying to defect. Good art and interesting story.

Chaykin's art has never been my fav. This was on sale for four bucks and I picked it up thinking it is unlikely to be collected in omnibus format. Worth the money at that price.
Collection of one shots featuring Captain America from different points in his history.

The Howard Chaykin story, featuring 50's commie-busting Cap was my favorite.

The rest of the stories are okay, there are no clunkers, but aside from Chaykin's nothing else really grabbed me and impressed me the same way.
