A special covering the length and breadth of the larger-than-life legend of Captain America, as told by the industry’s leading experts in the field! First up, it’s 1944, and wouldn't you know it? Them sneaky Nazis have managed to crack the secrets of electro-magnetic physics…yeah, that's right: apples may fall down in the free world, but schnitzels are falling up in the skies over a mysterious lab in a Polish forest, thanks to a little help from a nearby forced-labor camp. Sure, we could send in the Marines, but why bother when we've got Captain America? But even Cap may be meeting his match against the lab's sadistic cybernetic command more

    I will never regret Cap's inclusion in the Avengers, but he was created to be a Nazi fighter. This is his milieu. Given writers and artists who care, I never will tire of such reverberations. Theater of War echoes with impact. Read Full Review

    In the end, the Knaufs present a well-told, if not predictable period piece. The story itself, with its UFOs and altruistic scientists, isn't anything original, but some of the character moments manage to stir enough interest to make the book easy to recommend. The authors' exploration of a young and unsure Captain America works on a conceptual level, but is also executed well enough that I'd certainly like to see more. Read Full Review

    Captain America Theater of War Operation Zero Point #1 was an enjoyable read. The Knaufs create an easy to read and rather straight forward one-shot issue. This was certainly an entertaining and satisfying issue. This issue will also probably appeal to fans of World War II stories. Also if you like plenty of action then you will probably enjoy this issue. Read Full Review

    In all, this book was a good read, especially for folks who may be itching to read some adventures starring Steve Rogers, but it wasn't a very filling read. Consider it an appetizer for future adventures of the star-spangled warrior. Read Full Review

    Even with my few complaints, if the Knaufs set out to create an action packed classic Captain America story, they achieved that goal. But some of the decisions they made in producing the book I had to question and it took away from the book for me. So if you're in the need for the "star-spangled" hero since his untimely demise, then I suggest picking up this title tomorrow. Read Full Review
