In Tales of Suspense #88, Captain America received a distress call from someone who appeared to be his lost sidekick, Bucky (the original, not the wannabe). Obviously he dashed off alone to the location “Bucky” gives him, even though it’s a foreboding-sounding island. Cap was the only one surprised when it turned out that Red Skull had created a fake Robo-Bucky (RoBucky?) to reel him in. But the rest of that adventure is irrelevant for the purposes of this review. All you need to know is that Cap will be AWOL for a few issues starting with Avengers #38, but first, let’s jump straight into Issue Thirty-Seven.
