I haven't picked up 5 yet. But I'm looking forward to reading it. Zaniest series that I've read in a long while.

Yeah, I think that was clear from the moment Cap uses his shield to boil water.

Anyway, I must say I'm enjoying the flashbacks quite a lot, even more than the 'main' story. Steve Rogers stealing? I loved that moment.

Issue #5 wasn't bad. I strangely kind of like the Captains of Zolandia.

Five issues in and I am still convinced that my original theory is correct. I don't know what Zola's endgame is here but I still suspect that Cap is still strapped into one of Zola's crazy machines or laying on a table in his lab and all of these adventures in Zola's world are actually happening in Cap's mind.

I'll have to go back and give this a try. I am actually enjoying this series but I wonder if I were to sit down and read it all in one sitting, if I wouldn't like it a little bit more.

I assume that it was the same logic that was used in Dragon Ball Z where the fighters would wear these ridiculously heavy, gravity defying clothes to train in and then remove them prior to battle so they could move faster and punch harder...or something. :smt102

Agree, while it is nice to have a Planet Captain America storyline it would be nice to have a little more trickle of the end game. As we are coming to issue six I think that is where we will see it, as a nice end cap to the first arc.

I recommend it. Remender reads better collected I find.
I noticed her suit is supposed to be a " sensory deprivation suit" so I assumed she wanted it to be like sex. Who knows...

No, about what you assume that Jet Black's suit was being used for. :P

That's a valid point, mein lieber freund.

I was right about Jet Black wanting to ride the American rocket. What's the age of consent in Zolandia?

Figured it Ian was going to be brainwashed/manipulated by Zola at some point.

I'm pretty annoyed that Remender isn't really tapping into Kirby Zola at this point, instead choosing to make him a prototypical mad scientist dictator. I was expecting more hat tips to Kirby. It's kind of getting bad/silly at this point.

Are you saying this while storyline is just an excuse for Cap to get some underage, brainwashed pussy?
