Quote Of The Day: Captain America

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, Marvel Comics,

Willoughby Spit WonderHe scuffed directly to the wire magazine racks and twirled them till he located the comic books. He found the least-wrinkled copy of Young Men, which contained stories about the Sub-Mariner Captain America and the Human Torch. He took a minute to study its thrilling cover before carrying it and some war comics to the cash register.
    The guy who rang him up said, “First one of those we sold all week. Nobody’s buying superheroes anymore.”
    “Not even Young Men?”
    “Not even Batman.”
    Glancing back at the rack, Carter said, “That’s bad, huh?”
    The guy handed him his change. “We’ll live.”
