Captain America: Hail Hydra
by Jonathan Maberry (Goodreads Author),
Sergio Cariello (illustrator)
I read Captain America when I was kid, and as great as the movies have been I probably would not read this if it was not written by San Diego's own Jonathan Maberry. The bestselling author and host of the three guyes with beards podcast hosts our local San Diego Writer's coffeehouse that happens monthly at Mysterious Galaxy.
I'll be short here, what is cool about this story line is that Mabbery tells a zombie story set in the Cap universe that includes the history of Hydra and involves all the avengers. That is cool. What I didn't dig was that the art was all over the place. Sometimes using an old school sixties look and sometimes modern.It took me out of the story a bit.
Maberry tells a really cool story, and kudos to Marvel for hiring a horror guy to tell this story. Fun read. Need to read more Maberry in general.
