Truth: Red, White, and Black

Set in the Marvel Universe, the series takes the Tuskegee Experiments as inspiration for a tale that re-examines the history of the super-serum that created Captain America. Beginning in 1942, the series follows a regiment of black soldiers who are forced to act as test subjects in a program attempting to re-create the lost formula earlier used to turn Steve Rogers to Captain America. The experiments lead to mutation and death, until only one remains – Isaiah Bradley.

    Great concept, bad follow through. Morales’ writing was good, but the all over the place art by Baker was not clicking for me. Then with editorial mucking with the story, and placing it in continuity, but forgetting that Cap was already around by Pearl Harbor. Oops! The total package is nowhere near perfect, but I still have it in my collection.
