    Good lord, this was bad. Starts off with one-seventh of the Operation Galactic Storm crossover, even though it's all collected in Avengers Epic Collection Vol. 22: Operation Galactic Storm. Then, it's the infamous CapWolf story where every wolf related Marvel character shows up and Captain America becomes a werewolf. In the back up stories for all these issues, Cap's girlfriend, Diamondback, is constantly abused by Crossbones. It gets rough to get through. You do get Diamondback and Crossbones o Good lord, this was bad.

Then there a prestise format miniseries teaming up Cap with the Punisher in some hard to follow version of the Iran-Contra affair where the Attorney General is taking confiscated drugs and selling them back on the streets. It's pretty terrible.

    The last of the Mark Gruenwald Epic collections out as of now. This collection includes 3 issues of the epic Galactic Storm crossover(so big it has it's own Epic Collection) and a Punisher/Captain America crossover event. The bulk of the book covers CA transformation into Capwolf and guest stars Wolverine and Cable. It also covers the expansion of the backstory of both Crossbones and Diamondback. The stories are good, not great and at times feel more like filler than a continuation of the previo The last of the Mark Gruenwald Epic collections out as of now.

The bulk of the book covers CA transformation into Capwolf and guest stars Wolverine and Cable. It also covers the expansion of the backstory of both Crossbones and Diamondback. The stories are good, not great and at times feel more like filler than a continuation of the previous issues. If you read comics at the time of original publication, you might remember this was the time of over saturation of Marvel as they pushed crossovers and the biweekly storylines for all their big names. CA was no exception to this trend. Can't wait for vol 19 to be released to see the ramifications of Crossbones torture and programming of Diamondback...

    While once more the epic collection’s best part was the mini-series herein... (a Punisher team up that contrasted Cap’s World War II origins with Punisher’s Vietnam origins with some interesting effect) it could not salvage the rest of this book. Cap Wolf, Crossbones’s atrocious abuse of Diamondback... The Operation Galactic Storm issues are some relief, but they are a very small part of a bigger story best read elsewhere.

I have to wonder if this portion of Gruenwald will be worse than the oh-so-90s armored Cap that ends his time. While I have appreciated the continuity and some of the additions brought by Gruenwald, his actual stories have diminished and even grown painful. Richard Levins certainly isn’t doing anyone favors with his penciling...

    Eu sou muito fã do modelo Epic Collection, especialmente depois que migrei minhas leituras para o modelo digital; é mais barato, não ocupa espaço, sempre tem algo divertido nas 12 edições que coleciona. No caso de hoje, Capitão América, o Lobisomem Patriótico. Não, eu não tô brincando. As primeiras edições são desperdiçadas, porque fazem parte do evento Operação Tempestade Galática que tomou conta dos Vingadores na época; uma guerra entre os Kree, os Shiar e os Skrulls pelo controle de algum porta Eu sou muito fã do modelo Epic Collection, especialmente depois que migrei minhas leituras para o modelo digital; é mais barato, não ocupa espaço, sempre tem algo divertido nas 12 edições que coleciona. No caso de hoje, Capitão América, o Lobisomem Patriótico. Não, eu não tô brincando. As primeiras edições são desperdiçadas, porque fazem parte do evento Operação Tempestade Galática que tomou conta dos Vingadores na época; uma guerra entre os Kree, os Shiar e os Skrulls pelo controle de algum portal próximo da Terra ou coisa parecida; é uma porcaria, só vale porque temos Batroc, o Bigode Saltador. Quando o Capitão volta para Terra, descobre que a Cascavel, Rachel Leighton, está desaparecida, o Demolição, Dennis Dunphy, está desaparecido e o John Jameson, Homem-Lobo e piloto, está desaparecido. Por motivos que eu não sei explicar, uma série de ataques de lobo chama a atenção do Capitão, ele contata o Doutor Druida - sério, agora de rabo de cavalo -, porque pode ter algo a ver com o John "Licantropo" Jameson. Como coincidências são o café com leite das histórias, temos um vilão que está transformando pessoas em lobisomens. E aí a vaca olha pro brejo. Aparecem todos os personagens ferais da Marvel, Wolverine, Lupina, Feral, Lobisomem da Noite; quem está por trás de tudo é a Nightshade e Dremund, o Druida Demônio. Sério, Druida Demônio, o arqui-inimigo do Doutor Druida. Se o teu arqui-inimigo é o Doutor Druida, tu precisa repensar a tua vida. Aí o brejo olha pra vaca. Em algum momento aparece o Moonhunter, um cara que usa uma armadura de prata, pilota uma moto voadora e caça lobisomens pros vilões - sério. Enfim, o Capitão é capturado e vira lobisomem. A vaca começa a correr pro brejo. O Capitão Lobisomem enfrenta um Wolverine controlado pelos vilões, o Cable - apareceu do nada com ombreiras e armas gigantes -, eventualmente, o Capitão deixa de ser lobisomem e contrato o Moonhunter como novo piloto, algo que também não faz sentido. O Doutor Druida derrota o Druida Demônio. O pior não é ter como inimigo o Doutor Druida, é ser derrotado por ele. A vaca se atira "de bico" no brejo. O que mais me incomoda nessa história é que eu não sei porque o cara queria transformar todo mundo em lobisomens. Conquistar o mundo? Vender coleiras anti-pulgas? Armas de prata? Poder místico? Sei lá. Enquanto isso, em algumas histórias menores ao final das edições, descobrimos que Cascavel foi raptada pelo Ossos Cruzados e o Demolição estava perdido no Ártico e foi resgatado pelo Falcão e Agente Americano. Como o Demolilção e o John Jameson voltaram, resta buscar a Cascavel. Para isso, vamos as Montanhas Rochosas, com a dica quente do Doutor Druida. Temos um grande quebra-pau entre o Capitão, Falcão e Cascavel - que já estava conseguindo escapar - contra a Turminha do Esqueleto - capangas genéricos do Caveira Vermelha. O mais interessante é a apresentação de um passado comum e cheio de coincidências entre a Cascavel e o Ossos Cruzados, algo que eu já não lembrava mais. Quero destacar algumas coisa: - É ruim, as histórias são bem ruins, mas são deliciosamente divertidas pelo absurdo do que está acontecendo. O Mark Gruenwald é o grande escritor do Capitão e o cara que criou diversos conceitos que ainda são utilizados, mas aqui deu uma largada de mão. - Eu era apaixonado pela Cascavel durante os formatinhos da Abril; os anos 90 não foram fáceis para ninguém. - A arte é tenebrosa, tipo #RobIsGod, cheia dos exageros típicos dos anos 90, mas, de novo, é tosco e é muito legal. Sim, eu sei, óculos da nostalgia, pode ser. Mas eu continuo apaixonado pela Cascavel. O que explica muita coisa. Ah, quase que eu esqueço, tem uma mini série entre o Capitão e o Justiceiro - Blood And Glory - que tenta estabelecer algumas dicotomias entre os personagens, enquanto fala sobre o governo americano usando o tráfico de armas e de drogas na política de alguma republiqueta de bananas sul-americana, mas é, no máximo, mais ou menos.

    Not the best volume in the series. Too much fighting and not enough intelligence.
