  Just 1 star for General Sumo...ugh...

Mind Reader - On page 2 panel 2 it looks like Cap answered the question before it was asked!

The More You Know - I had to look up what "temerity", and "retinue" meant.

Man Out Of Time - Would Cap known about Jim's college days?

Hidden Years - I wonder if General Sumo and Wong-Chu used to wrestle in the past?

'Nuff Said - "But the entire free world needs you, Cap--!"-Jim Baker

  Cap is so positive, even his trash-talking has an uplifting spirit to it.

  Jim Baker looks weird close-up.

  In the copy I read, Jim Baker has skin the color of bread mold.

  • That's my line "Hold your fire!! Can't you see I'm unarmed??" (Captain America, behind his deadly shield)

  • Again, I was quite positively surprised to see that Stan values black people enough to make them heroes of war. Then again, Gabe Jones has been around in the Howling Commandos for quite a while now.

  • The general's humble speech as he meets Captain America is too much of a caricature.

  • This story is really not memorable, but for the importance Stan gives to black people and for good art in the fight scenes, it deserves 3 stars.

  Sure, they would escort the most dangerous american savely through Vietnam to meet their leader...they would not just put a bullet in his head and bring the body as trophy...
Sorry, but do not buy it...meh 1*

  On the one hand, we've got a black war hero and some nifty art. On the other hand, we've got a sumo as a Vietnamese general and a slew of stereotypical Asian references and depictions.

Mixed bag, indeed.
