Book Review: The Adventures of Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty

The Adventures of Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty The Adventures of Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty by Fabian Nicieza

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This book contains two Captain America mini-series.

The first is the Adventures of Captain America, which is a 1990s retelling of Cap's origin and earliest adventures with a lot of details expanded. Overall, this was a likable story with solid art, particularly for the era that managed to mostly remain consistent with what had come before. While not every change worked, I thought most did. This is a fun look at a little less experienced Captain America.

Captain America: The Newspaper strips is an attempt to rectify the lack of Captain America newspaper strips being published during the golden age of comics like Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman were. This works fairly although the art definitely more reflects the style of the early 2000s when it was written rather than the 1940s. I also felt the plot wasn't that great, particularly given that this was the only story that would told like this. Still, it's a nice read if you're a fan of the Golden Age cap tales.
