This second volume collects Invaders stories from Invaders #10-#21 and Annual #1.

Issue 10 has a brief recap of the battle with Baron Blood that ended the previous book and left the elderly Union Jack unable to continue. However, that's only a framing story for a reprint of a golden age Captain America story from Captain America #24 which was pretty entertaining but also not what the book was about. As Roy Thomas explained, the staff was struggling with the demands of going to monthly publication

Reprints Invaders #10-21 and Annual #1 (November 1976-October 1977). The Invaders battle with Baron Blood is over and as a result Spitfire is born and the Invaders lose Union Jack. The Invaders face off against another superhero team called the Crusaders which reveals a secret of the Falsworths. Traveling deep into Nazi territory, the Invaders face Hitler himself and find themselves in their most perilous situation as a new Union Jack is born.

Written by Roy Thomas with Stan Lee and Ed Summer als

Okay, now we're talking ... the second collection of Invaders tales by Roy Thomas and Frank Springer (with the occasional fill-in artist such as Jim Mooney) gels completely as we get an ongoing supporting cast and subplots extending over more than two issues. Several issues find The Invaders behind enemy lines, where they finally confront Hitler (spoiler alert - he gets away), travel in time to meet the 1969 incarnation of The Avengers (showing their side of the story that originally took place ...more

Roy Thomas ha un grande amore per i personaggi della Golden Age, e si vede sempre, quando li usa. Queste storie degli Invasori, disegnate da Frank Robbins col suo caratteristico stile spigoloso con pose anatomicamente improbabili dei personaggi (un Macfarlane ante litteram) unito alla realisticità delle sue armi ed aerei della WW II in cui combattè lui stesso, hanno retto abbastanza bene, a mio avviso il passare dei decenni, ormai quattro, dalla loro edizione originale. Queste storie mi piaccion ...more

In the second volume of the 70's comic series, the storyline gains momentum, and the Invaders gain two members, in the form of the British heroes Union Jack and Spitfire. The stories make better use of the World War II setting as the Invaders venture into occupied Europe, and face off against Hitler himself.
