Format: Paperback
In my humble opinion, THIS IS THE BEST CAPTAIN AMERICA SAGA, EVER! Jack Kirby and Captain America triumph over the forces that threaten us and on this occasion, Cap is confronted by Science run amok! The story starts in the jungles of Central America then seques into a fantasic adventure that would make the more squeamish individual cringe in terror!

On the shores of the "River of Death", Cap battles the forces of "The Swine"--Hector Santiago, a brutal prison commander who loves torturing the inmates. Cap smashes through Santiago's men; wins the heart of The Swine's cousin, the voluptuous Donna Maria, only to stumble upon the secret of SHIELD's "File 116"-- loathsome monsters created by Arnim Zola, a modern-day "Frankenstein" who is an agent of the Red Skull!

There are two entertaining (if forgettable) "buffer" stories that involve a space-vampire and an assassin called the Night Flyer, but Cap soon gets back to business by taking on Magneto, the Mutant Master of Magnetism! Just for fun and torture, Magneto brought along a new cadre of his Brotherhood of Evil Mutants! Cap is at his best as he fights for the freedom of two alien mutants who only want to return home...

Jack Kirby is at the height of his story-telling skills, here! His Expressionistic drawing style is still top notch but what is impressive is the vast improvement in the writing. The snappy dialogue is forceful and earnest, while the prose moves the reader through the stories without relying on insipid melodrama.

The trade paperback CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE FALCON BY JACK KIRBY VOLUME 3: THE SWINE collects Captain America #206 - 214 and Annuals #3 & 4. These were Kirby's final issues as writer/artist on the series, and they are certainly his best. Where VOLUME 1: MADBOMB and VOLUME 2: BICENTENNIAL BATTLES were full of random oddities and mediocre stories, the stories collected in THE SWINE are actually very straightforward, exciting, and well-written (at least, in comparison to other work Kirby was producing at the time). These tales really deliver a punch.

This book starts off with Cap and the Falcon returning after the events in volume 2. Falcon shows his tender side when reunited with his sweet sweet love, Leila - never has Kirby's penchant for pseudo-jive been on better display than here. Steve Rogers has an uncomfortable reunion with an old flame, ex-SHIELD agent Sharon Carter, before being kidnapped to Central America to become a slave of The Swine. This eventually leads to encounters with Arnim Zola, the Red Skull, and Nazi-X, plus the Night Flyer, The Captive, Mister 1 and Mister 2, Magneto, and a new version of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. All of Kirby's storytelling and artistic strengths are on display here, plus a few of his weaknesses, but the bad parts are minor. He really ups the bar on this final collection, and whether serious or fun, the stories are winners. The Magneto story was an especially fun way to end the book, as Kirby returns to one of his classic villains and plays him for a sap. He's definitely not as all-powerful as today's comics make him out to be, and seeing Magneto have his bucket of a helmet crushed around his head is a scene I'll never forget! Ah, for the days when Marvel didn't take itself so seriously...

Without question a superhero saga filled with science fiction, surrealism, over the top action and adventure, fantastic grotesque villains and last but most definitely not least the superb and stellar work of the one and only Jack Kirby. If you can find a copy of this - GET IT! 1970's Kirby reaches a synthesis in his art and writing, and once he returns to Marvel int he mid to late 70s it is fantastic. This one has ferociously great action sequences and a story that never lets up. All I can say is get this while you can!
