Cap and the real world

Caught up, partly anyway, on my comics reading over the weekend, including last week’s “Captain America” No. 35 and last month’s (yes, I’ve been behind) “Captain America” No. 34, which saw Bucky Barnes don the Cap costume for the first time. One thing I like about Ed Brubaker’s story is how rooted in the real world it seems, such as the economic ills plaguing America. It’d be nice if the housing downtown and credit crunch and all that were really the work of the Red Skull. Might be easier to take care of it all, then. No need for an economic stimulus package: Just get rid of that pesky Red Skull.
