No Post Monday

I have to go to Waco in the morning, and I didn't have time to finish the post I was working on.  I am sure you all understand.

Had a lovely weekend, and am sure this week will be swell.

Here's the cover of Captain America #1, featuring work by Jack Kirby and story by Joe Simon.  We (The US, that is) weren't actually yet at war with Germany when this comic hit the stands.  But Cap was already in action.  He's just that cool.

Go, get 'em, Cap!

Yup, Cap punched Hitler in the face a full 10 months before the USA got involved in WW2. You gotta love the hutzpah that Joe and Jack used to get this title published. As at that time the country was fairly divided on whether or not they should get into the war.
