classic Kirby Hitler/Red Skull/bondage cover; origin & 1st app of Young Allies
CGC G/VG: 3.0
Riding on the popularity and success of its star, Captain America, Timely comics had no intention of canceling the red, white, and blue Avenger's off-shoot Sentinels of Liberty, despite the cooling relations between Timely management and the title's star creators, Jack Kirby and Joe Simon. Enter young whipper-snapper and staffer, Stan Lee, ready to cut his teeth and show off his talents by taking over scripting duties on the rechristened Young Allies. To hedge their bets, Timely not only plastered the already-legendary Red Skull on the cover of the new title, but also sale magnet and would-be world-conqueror, Der Fuhrer. Interestingly, this book featured the first ever pairing of Timely's two main draws, Captain America and the Human Torch, and launched a dubious tradition of showcasing our heroes tied or strapped to one nasty-looking device or another.
