Preview: ‘Captain America: The 1940′s Newspaper Strip’ #3 [Exclusive]
Karl Kesel’s Captain America comic strip series turned its share of heads when it launched as a daily digital comic strip earlier this year. Not only was the new project presented as a collection of rediscovered comic strips from the ’40s, it ran as a daily adventure series for 85 consecutive days (with deluxe material on Sundays) at Marvel.com before being collected as a printed three-issue miniseries.
Marvel Comics has provided us with a preview of ‘Captain America: The 1940′s Newspaper Strip’ #3, which concludes Kesel’s printed run in stores on August 25. Here’s how the publisher describes the printed series’ third and final installment:
Uncovered at last: The 1904s daily newspaper comic strip starring Captain America that you never knew about! Travel with us to the tumultuous days of World War II, when the star-spangled, shield-slinging Super Soldier battled Axis threats alongside his wise-cracking, jaw-jacking sidekick Bucky! Plus: Rampaging robots! Dangerous dames and femme fatales! No-good Nazis that deserve a sock to the kisser…like that no good stinkin’ Red Skull! All brought to you by acclaimed writer/artist Karl Kesel!
