The Artist War Zone Wednesday!

More comic fun from All Winners # 3!

Though it was a more innocent time....

.... they figured out early on how to shill other comics. Cap is supposedly reading the blurb about the guy who hung himself, but we also get a nice ad for Young Allies. It's sweeping the country, don'tcha know! And yes, I have a few copies available of Young Allies. Prepare to be aghast.

Hey! It's Cap's most dangerous battle!

I hate to be a cynic, but I can't help but think that a guy who had been on virtually every front line in WWII, facing down tanks and hundreds of Axis troops armed with automatic weapons and grenades at once, probably wouldn't have much trouble with an old man brandishing a knife. He might be pretty spry, but still.... wasn't Cap genetically altered to be the ultimate fighting machine? It's amazing to me how much trouble he's having with an elderly person.

Did I mention the old man was known as "The Artist"? That's how badass he was. You can bring down Baron Zemo and the Red Skull, but you can't say you've been in the sh!t until you've fought "The Artist!"

And hey! Check out the Whizzer's new duds!

I suppose it's an improvement over the helmet with the bird's head on it that we've seen earlier, but the Whizzer's last look had no mask whatsoever, so I'm not sure what good it's going to do him now. Then again, anyone who deliberately calls himself "The Whizzer" is operating on a level I can't begin to imagine.
