    This trade paperback collects a sequence of Captain America issues that is a fairly average specimen of superhero writing that Marvel was producing in the late Nineties. It is a standard adventure that readers of the time expect from their Captain America comics. It had Nazis, dinosaurs and super-spies. It also plays on the man out of time concept that is the established characterization of Steve Rogers since the 1960’s. Dan Jurgens, who is credited as writer, also handled the monthly adventure This trade paperback collects a sequence of Captain America issues that is a fairly average specimen of superhero writing that Marvel was producing in the late Nineties. It is a standard adventure that readers of the time expect from their Captain America comics. It had Nazis, dinosaurs and super-spies. It also plays on the man out of time concept that is the established characterization of Steve Rogers since the 1960’s. Dan Jurgens, who is credited as writer, also handled the monthly adventures of Rogers’ Asgardian Avengers teammate in Thor where he gave the thunder god a civilian identity; continues an effective storytelling device with a civilian identity for Cap and a blossoming romance. Rogers is dating a civilian and not Sharon Carter with whom he has unresolved relationship issues and an almost crippling romantic tension. It actually makes sense for both to get together as they run in the same circles and are currently attached to S.H.I.E.L.D. with Carter as the acting director of the agency. Sharon could be someone who could be well suited to superhero romance as he can effectively defend herself, unlike any civilian romance Cap may have who is always a potential weakness his enemies can exploit. Captain America was a well drawn comic book, with Andy Kubert, who is ably supported by talented inkers and a couple of stellar fill-in artists in Brent Anderson and Jerry Ordway whose stories catered specifically to their talents. Anderson handled the first part of a two-parter set in the Savage Land where he was able to go wild with his depictions of dinosaurs and dinosaur men. Ordway drew a World War II story of a dying veteran. It was poignant tale helped tremendously by Ordway’s retro-flavored art. Joe Kubert also inked a few pages of his son Andy’s pencils. A legend in the comic book industry, his work was easily identifiable because of the bold brushwork of his inks. Though it overpowered Andy’s pencils, which is what most artist want when the legend inks over their work. Joe Kubert rarely does interior work in recent years and a few pages were always a treat. The only weak link in the art was when Jurgens took over the last two issues of this collection. His storytelling is pretty solid, but his art was pretty bland and not even the inks of Art Thibert, a well-known penciller and Jim Lee clone could make it interesting enough to stand out from Andy Kubert’s run. Update: I felt that I could live without this book. I realized that my favorite run on Captain America is Ed Brubaker's and I already have that as an omnibus. Time for this copy to go.

    This goes back to "classic" comics, where there's a bad guy and the good guy stops them. I actually miss that about modern superhero comics so this fit the bill. It isn't too deep of course, a mild theme about hate and a surprisingly relevant story about the internet and recording of all data passing through it. Some very nice art by Andy Kubert, and fill-ins by Brent Anderson, Jerry Ordway, and Jurgens himself. This goes back to "classic" comics, where there's a bad guy and the good guy stops them.

    This was such an epic read and I had to read it across multiple days to get through it all, written by Jurgens one of the best writers ever, it tells the tale of Cap in the 90s as he is fighting white supremacists alongside falcon and rescuing his friend Nick and other shield agents, and particularly, HATE MONGER, hitler incarnate. It shows that racism still existed then and does now too, and how Cap will always stand against racism and it was a great volume and showcases the ideals of Cap in a This was such an epic read and I had to read it across multiple days to get through it all, written by Jurgens one of the best writers ever, it tells the tale of Cap in the 90s as he is fighting white supremacists alongside falcon and rescuing his friend Nick and other shield agents, and particularly, HATE MONGER, hitler incarnate. It shows that racism still existed then and does now too, and how Cap will always stand against racism and it was a great volume and showcases the ideals of Cap in a social-political way. The other story is going to Savage Land to find Sharon, when he teams with Matthew, the son of Ka-Zar who has grown up and its an epic adventure in Savage land where they have to fight Dinosaur men and other beats and find the secrets behind aging and experiments on them and how Count Nefaria is involved and its an epic tale of him fighting through this jungle and getting victory in the end and saving people. There is another standalone tale of Cap, Nick encountering this old man from a battle in 1944 and he tells him how he was grateful to cap for saving his life and this was my favorite story easily, such heartfelt volume. There is also backups showing AIM acquiring a super soldier before cap and have named him PROTOCIDE and he seems to be the next big villain in the future volumes and will be a big threat to Cap. Also another story about Cap and Falcon taking down this villain called Cache and this company Parliamech involved and how they battle it out to save the day and some funny lines about Internet in 90s. Its fun to see Cap deal with such issues and emerge victorious and showcase his good side and helping people, inspiring them! A great volume overall with some amazing 90s Nostalgia art with Steve at his very best and the villains just amazing and stories reflective of the times and Dan does a great job of it. He gets Cap very well, what makes him the Sentinel of Liberty and how he inspires others to be their best and also he lays down great bread-crumbs for future stories and other people in the book also get a good spotlight! Overall an amazing and great read!

    Dan Jurgens's Captain America run begins with some solid, old-school comic storytelling. My main complaint with Jurgens's Cap is that he writes Steve Rogers as an old man in a young man's body who is relentlessly nostalgic for old things, and while that is a valid interpretation of the Man out of Time theme, I don't necessarily agree it is the best or only way to understand Rogers. Of course, that's what the benefit of twenty years of hindsight, with exceptional Captain America comics and Chris Dan Jurgens's Captain America run begins with some solid, old-school comic storytelling.

Of course, that's what the benefit of twenty years of hindsight, with exceptional Captain America comics and Chris Evans's movie version adds. As much as I liked Jurgens's run when it was new, it's just been completely outclassed by Cap portrayals since, and as someone reading it in 2020 and not 1999, I have to give it 3 or maybe 3.5 stars.

    I would normally characterize Dan Jurgens as simply an average writer. He doesn't write many horrible stories, but rarely does he impress. That being said, his first collection of Cap tales is actually pretty good....perhaps more of a 3.5 than 4 stars, but a very good debut on the character.

    This is pretty much a bog-standard trade paperback collection of 10 Captain America issues with not much in particular to recommend it. I like trade paperbacks to have a theme, or to collect an especially good story arc or run by a particularly good artist, and while Dan Jurgens and Andy Kubert are both solid, capable professionals, there isn't enough of the outstanding about their work to merit this, and subsequent, collections. The stories are typical villain-of-the-month (Hate Monger and Coun This is pretty much a bog-standard trade paperback collection of 10 Captain America issues with not much in particular to recommend it.

The stories are typical villain-of-the-month (Hate Monger and Count Nefaria) wheeled out to menace our hero, with a dollop of soap opera thrown into the mix. Kubert's art is impressive and probably deserves better content. Something to read when you're very bored; borrow it from your local library if you can!

    Competent, fun superheroics from writer Dan Jurgens and artists including Jurgens, Andy Kubert and Jerry Ordway. Originally printed in 2000, Jurgens' run followed on the second Mark Waid Captain America run. The stories were reprinted in 2011 in the lead-up to the "First Avenger" film. The standout story for me was from issue #32, which looks back at a World War II tale featuring Captain America as drawn by Ordway.

He handily defeats the U.S. Agent in this volume, setting up his future confrontation with Cap. I don't love the name but it's an intriguing concept.

    Thought Cap was all over the place as far as character. Reading this also made me miss the Falcon as he was (except the awful suit from this series) But Nick Fury was captured perfectly (no pun intend) Jerkins art, I have always been a fan but many time Cap's shield was way to small.

    Kubert and Ordway's art is up to their usual high standards, the story is just okay, though it builds to the end, but if you want the final confrontation you'll have to buy volume 2...
