Tales of Suspense #61: Captain America

January 4, 2012

Stan Lee // Jack Kirby
January 1965
B-story: **
Cap may not see combat in Vietnam, but in this backup, he rescues a captured US pilot. The tale is a mess of Asian stereotypes—the Vietnamese general is a Japanese sumo wrestler—but that’s offset (a little, anyway) by that POW. Tho’ drawn as a white guy, Lee has had him colored w/ black skin.
