Read full description of the books:
Actually I'm a bit ticked off. Not at the book, but at the reviewers who think the 1960s are to be sneered at because they were the 1960s. I was a kid (and young adult) in the 60s. When grown I raised my own kids and in the 80s I would never have let them wander in alone and select from the comic books of that era without supervision. Yes comics of the '60s were different. You don't like it...don't read it. If however you think you might enjoy the art and stories of a time when comics were a different thing then give it a try. Sure the dialog is a bit more corny, the characters don't disembowel each other, any love stories are implied more than graphically drawn... how terrible.
The nostalgia here is (for me) so thick you can cut it with a knife. I was 11 years old in 1963 and just becoming a Marvel fan. Over the years that followed Captain America became my favorite comic book hero. Yes, that Captain America, the one who made speeches about free people standing and fighting for their freedom against despots and dictators. (Many villains were surviving Nazis [Nazi super villains]or invaders from space or the future or an alternate dimension or whatever). As soon as I opened this up I was there again and I enjoyed the book immensely. (I have ordered the next 2. LOL)
These are comics from what is called the Silver Age of comics. No they're not the gritty 1980s and 1990s gore fests. No they're not the angst ridden "who are we really" 2000s. They tell direct stories where there is usually a clear right and wrong. The heroes often fall for obvious ploys by the "bad guys". Plot exposition takes place often in word balloons over the character's head as their in the midst of a fight. BUT, you also get the patented wise guy comments that Marvel pioneered. In their day these were actually on the cutting edge. Jack Kirby is still remembered as THE comic artist. He originated Cap back in WWII and was the artist that brought him back here.
So, this is comic history and it's worth holding on to and remembering, even if all don't really appreciate it. If it's what you're looking for enjoy.
