Wow. I know nothing about this comic and I already know that I will never, ever want to read it.

You make Bourque sad. The very first issue of Captain America featured, on the cover, Cap PUNCHING OUT Hitler.

The image screams "I get a hard-on each time I see Cap wrestle Hitler!"

Uhm, no. This should be an iconic image, not one of poor delivery. Less is more.

you know, I bet Hitler's regretting vetoing Erskine's s3 serum about now.

I mean, sure you can make even a bellboy into a superior man, but does he ever win? no.

I can see the problem with this as presented. As noted elsewhere, in the Golden Age there was the excuse of patriotic rallying to that sort of image.

In retrospect, Cap NOT killing Hitler without a seconds hesitation when given an opportunity, IS an issue. We're not talking Batman not killing the Joker here, both are fictional. Here we have a representation of a real, unspeakable monster, you don't use a sleeper hold on him, you snap his neck. And yet at the same time, we know Cap never did do that. It's just unsatisfying on a number of level (in the sense that this could ever be a satisfying issue)

Oh, and Bucky is posed VERY strangely.

From: [identity profile] jlbarnett.insanejournal.com
THis is the cover, not an actual page from the issue. Also some people did wish that Hitler could have been captured and condemned at Nuremburg. That's what they did(or were going to do) in an issue of What If?

And that's another thing. Imagine Cap coming back to this time, knowing what he knows now about the war, though he knew plenty. But knowing the full scale of the Holocaust and so forth. Just TRY to keep him from Hitler.

Odd association but...Bucky reminds me of that scene in Airplane where Ted Stryker is painting a fiendishly violent picture of a soldier from a live model. The guy's got his leg twisted over his head and a dead baby in one hand and a rifle in the other? And that same kind of death grin.

and then you see he has an actual model twisted into that position holding a doll.

I believe its title got changed to Captain America: Truth because Captain America: White came off as too unintentionally racist.

I'm kind of excited about the Slaughterhouse 5 unstuck in time idea.

And who's that guy that kept going "I'm going to kill Hitler?" Spy Smasher? Leave something for Spy Smasher, Cap!

From: [identity profile] jlroberson.insanejournal.com
In at least one story, that is ALL Spy Smasher said. And then he did. And then he repeated, "I killed Hitler!" Of course it was an imposter. So he had to do it again. Soon, no man with any kind of mustache was safe. And then he met Stalin. And that's what happened to Spy Smasher.

I have a soft spot for the "Batman and the Outsiders" story where Baron Bedlam clones Hitler and seeks to awaken all the Fuhrers memories... it doesn't end the way you think it might.

In my fantasy fan-script, I wrote in a Hitler look-alike, just so I could get that PUNCH HITLER visual.

It's weak art. There's a lot of attention to surface detail and coloring, but the layout has no impact. It doesn't draw the reader in. It doesn't sell a dramatic moment. Also, I think Cap's face is just drawn ugly and Bucky with a GI helmet looks dumb as anything.

Hooboy, that's some unfortunate art. Which is a shame, because I'm really looking forward to reading the story.

Not Hitch's finest hour, there; besides, Cap needs to be throwing a punch, with one of Hitler's molars flying towards us in the foreground, roots lovingly detailed.

I believe I have seen the picture you are talking about, but Google can't find it. I think it was by Alex Ross.
