Rich Johnston's CAPTAIN AMERICAN IDOL #1
Rich Johnston's Captain American Idol #1
Script by Rich Johnston
Illustrated by Chris Haley
I've never watched the show or read the books
This comic skewers, but that matters not.
In broad, cartoonish art that really looks
Just right for looniness like this, it's got
A gimmicky and foolish charm. We start
With Steve, stars in his eyes, skinny and small,
Obeying prompts of patriotic heart
To join the USO and give his all
In World War II. He first must be a hit
On radio reality, though, so
He's put on Gordon Ramsay's wicked spit
(Don't ask) in preparation for the show.
He kills it, but then for his grand encore
Must rescue all the soldiers he sang for?
