Reading Room: Captain America

There are some characters that comic book creators feel the need to “try out,” to put in a backup story or a guest appearance somewhere to see if they garner any reader interest. That wasn’t the case with Captain America. Joe Simon knew he had a hit on his hands when he and Jack Kirby […]
