I admit, I thought this was a silly parody of Captain America at first, but I was pleasantly wrong.

In this story, Captain China, formerly known as Liberator and ranked Major, is brought from cryogenic sleep to fight China's enemies or at least that's what he would prefer whereas his superiors see him more as a PR stunt to show China's strength. The name initially gives a sense of rip-off, but it's explained as more of a calculated PR move by the Chinese leadership. Captain China of course does mirror some aspects of Captain America in the movie winter soldier though in the sense that the protagonist comes from a different time and is facing a bit of a culture shock (but hey this came from the year 2012 whereas the winter soldier came from 2014 so no rip off here). It's worth noting that one of the major characters in this story worked in the wrestling industry and now works for Captain China as his PR manager of sorts.

That said, Captain China has all the underpinnings of a America-style superhero, from the macho attitudes, the stoic resolve, the mystery shrouded around his past, and the disregard for authority figures. He may be held under a tight leash, but he still defies authority to save lives, kick butt and take name in this first volume. Where he does separate from the traditional American superhero however is his ruthlessness in regards to villains. Hell, he shot and killed a thief during his introduction who turns out to be hired secretly by the PR manager to cause a commotion in front of Captain China and the press. His commander is shocked at how trigger happy Captain China is.

After reading this book, I have come to the conclusion that this book contains everything that the industry lacks these days: SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE. You can read it and be amused by it. You can read it and be provoked by it. You can read it and be given cause to stop and think. But you will NOT read it and feel ripped off by it. You can tell a lot of thought went into this book, and in the 41 pages a LOT of ground is covered, but not too much that you're left scratching your head. The artwork is excellent. The hi-rez images on the Kindle Fire look brilliant. The writing isn't cheesy. This is a fun book worth reading. Support the little guys!

This comic dedicated to the most glorious, great and right Party is undoubtedly a hymn to our loyalty! Long live our comrade "Oba-watching-the-Ocean" ! Viva la Chine! Viva la CCP!

Does that mean China "officially" has its own super hero now, I'm not sure, but thanks to Wang who brought life to this so-entertaining role, I believe they're trying to speak up with their own way, Bravo! Keep it that way!

Fun comic! It is a little shorter than I was expecting but still a good time. Looking forward to Vol. 2.
