With all the recent buzz about the forthcoming film The First Avenger: Captian America, I realized something. I really don’t have much firsthand knowledge of Captain America.

He’s popped up in some of the other Marvel books I’ve read, but I’ve never read anything solely about him.

This series is, so they say, going to be very influential on the forthcoming film. I can’t say I’m too enthused.

It’s all just so bland and obvious. I won’t bore you with anything resembling a synopsis. It just doesn’t have any zing. He’s a guy haunted by the past. And his shield is a boomerang. I dunno . . I’ve got Volume 2 here, maybe it’ll all come together.
