Reviewer’s Comments:
It’s World War II and the Nazi’s have created a Super Soldier. America responds by creating it’s own super soldier garbed in red, white and blue.

I’m not describing the origins of Marvel Comic’s character Captain America. This, is the character Erika Amerika in the book Herotown. Remember the Invaders? In this book they’re called the Liberators.

I get the distinct impression that Chris Perguidi was a fan of Marvel Comics growing up. There’s even a character called “The Dart” dressed very similarly to the Marvel Comics character Hawkeye.

There are a few differences between this book and the Marvel Comics characters and origins I’m describing. This book even borrows Tarzan, who is a topless woman called Tarzana. (Don’t get excited kiddies, her hair covers everything.) Iceman is a female called The Inhuman Glacier, who even travels on a sheet of ice.

There are others and I could go on but I won’t. I wasn’t impressed with the book. It seemed to me that it was more of a work of Marvel Fan fiction that had been adapted to create a new comic book.

The story didn’t seem to unfold naturally, and it seemed like the character dialogue wasn’t much more than a reason to tell the reader things about the universe this book takes place in. The interactions that did take place between characters seemed forced and even a bit cheesy at times.

The pencils weren’t terrible, but they could definitely use some fine tuning. Some of the anatomy seemed a bit off and the perspective showing distance and angles just didn’t seem quite right. The inks and colors weren’t bad and were, without doubt, the best thing about this book.

For five big ones, I can’t really recommend this one.
