    We are officially in the war now. Captain America defends our shores the only way he knows how: by punching first and asking questions later. Our hero continues to place young Bucky Barnes in lethal danger. At least twice in this collection Bucky is at death's door and must be rushed for medical attention. Will Cap ever learn? The main villains now are the Japanese, the Germans, and traitors working for either one.

The main villains now are the Japanese, the Germans, and traitors working for either one. You'll recognize who is the villain as they all have the same thick lips and terrible dental care. Also included in the collection is one Headline Hunter (who seems to have the same punch power as C.A. but at least he's overseas), several Imps, and the newest kid to solve problems with violence, The Secret Stamp.

    The fourth volume of Marvel Masterworks Captain America stories collects Issues 13-16 of Captain America Comics. These issues were written post-Pearl Harbor and reflect the mood (for the most part) with kids being urged to buy war stamps, and even being urged to cut down on comic book purchases (imagine a comic book company doing that) to buy more war stamps and it being announced that Captain America's Sentinels of Liberty not receiving a certificate so that paper can be better used for the war The fourth volume of Marvel Masterworks Captain America stories collects Issues 13-16 of Captain America Comics. These issues were written post-Pearl Harbor and reflect the mood (for the most part) with kids being urged to buy war stamps, and even being urged to cut down on comic book purchases (imagine a comic book company doing that) to buy more war stamps and it being announced that Captain America's Sentinels of Liberty not receiving a certificate so that paper can be better used for the war effort. Here is a feature by feature round up of the book as each book included two full length Captain America stories plus other features: Captain America: The Eight Cap stories are strong. They're somewhat typical war action stories with a horror bent so the series remained true to the original vision of creators Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. The art isn't Kirby and Art Avilson's drawing of all American enemies with fang-like teeth is a bit over the top but it was wartime. The two standout Cap Stories are Issue 3's "The Invasion from Mars" by the legendary Bill Finger which features a "real" Martian invasion in the midst of the War making for an interesting plot. Issue 4's "The Red Skull's Deadly Revenge" is a 24-page epic by the 19 year old Stan Lee. The story's grand plot and its creation of mythology around the Cap-Red Skull rivalry provides a great preview of the type of stories Lee would write more than two decades later when he launched the Marvel age with big battles and heroic struggles. Ironically these stories contain the biggest goofs in the book with "The Invasion from Mars" mis-spelling Orson Welles' name and the art of "The Red Skull's Deadly Revenge" featured the Skull having the Japanese rising sun on his shirt and then switched within the same story to the traditional Swastika. Apparently, the Skull shops at Axiswear. Still, all of the Cap stories are good with these two being must-reads. The Imp: Really somewhat of a departure from the rest of the book. It's a pure children's feature with the rhyming lovable imp taking on every day foes in a great story for younger readers. It's delightful and just really fun to read by Stan Lee that showcases his early humor. Secret Stamp: One of the most dorky (albeit patriotic) superhero concepts ever. Roddy Colt, a paperboy who also sells Defenase Stamps has his bike stolen. A reporters buy him a new one, so he decides to become a defense stamp themed superhero who helps ferret out fifth columnists, with his biggest clue as to who might be a potential fifth columnist: people who don't buy defense stamps. This is a series of stories you just have to enjoy for their unintentional hilarity. While it's well-meaning, it's a truly silly feature. Headline Hunter: Thankfully, this strip made it's last appearance in Captain America #13. As a concept, it was very weak. Essentially, a reporter goes around punching out bad guys for six pages and that's the whole plot. The other portions of the book are pretty forgettable include four two page text stories and short humor strips, Elmer and Percy. However the book is worth reading for some great Golden Age Captain America stories, the charm of the Imp, and the goofiness of Secret Stamp.
