Marvel Announces the Penguin Classics Captain America Anthology
They are one of the most reputable publishers on the planet, and they are adding one of the greatest comic book heroes of all time to their ranks, as Marvel announced the Penguin Classics Captain America anthology book from their Marvel Collection line.
One look down the annals of Comic book history, and there is no shortage of tremendous Marvel heroes that have been present for some of the biggest and most beloved stories that the medium has ever seen.
Yet, of all of those characters and all of those stories, there may be no one that is quite like Marvel’s Captain America; and even fewer that have a similar connection with fans the way that Steve Rogers does.
A hero created to help aid patriotism in the nation following the events of World War II, Steve Rogers was always orchestrated to be a beacon of hope, a foundation of moral justice, and a symbolic representation of the original ideological understanding of the American dream.
There was always something so incredible about the character, and the biggest evidence of that inherent quality is seen clearly in the incredible longevity and period of relevance that he has been privy to.
It was under the guidance of Stan Lee, and his return to Marvel Comics as one of the original six Avengers that gave him renewed purpose, and crafted a hero that other Marvel characters would look up to.
And now that character is being repackaged for an all-new generation, as Marvel has announced the Penguin Classics Captain America Anthology from its Marvel Collection.
