    Comic Book Bin - Andy Frisk Jun 21, 2009

    Overall, Riveras pencils and style fit this special very well as he bounces back and forth effortlessly from World War II era style and dress to modern style and dress. He also captures a slightly cartoonish look, especially in the facial expressions of the Young Allies, which harkens back to the style of 1930s and 1940s comic books, without appearing to be parody. His wide angle layouts of Arlington National Cemetery are quite striking. They capture the moving number of departed men and women who served their country in its greatest time of need, much like Bucky and his Young Allies did. Young Allies Comics 70th Anniversary Special #1 is definitely a great artistic and narrative read worth adding to your collection of Marvels 70th Anniversary Specials. Read Full Review

    Overall, it's probably one of the weaker of the 70th anniversary specials, but it's not a bad read. There has got to be better materials to throw in the reprint section though. At least Marvel is doing something somewhat interesting with these, and by telling stories removed from whatever ongoing mega-plot they've blanketed the rest of their comics with at the moment, the specials are some of the more enjoyable comics they're currently publishing. Let's hope they can bring that energy to some other books at some point. Read Full Review

    While the price tag is a little steep, especially for the range of "bonus material" included, the main story is enjoyable and definitely worth a read. Judging by the entries on his blog, it looks like this may not be the last time we see a Captain America-related story drawn by Paolo Rivera. Hopefully the same can be said for Roger Stern.
