    Bookmarker's Notes

    I have mentioned there was some irregularity about the authors of these remarkable books known in most circles only as “The Books of Caribbean Magic” (though in truth, the two volumes could not have been more different); and indeed, it was the identity of these authors that had placed their books in such low regard among serious magicians. For whom, asked the common magician, could believe that such important books would be written by a Caribbean Admiral and a vile Sea-Pirate?

    Summary

    In his 2009 book on Captain America comic books, war photography, and American propaganda, Everett claims: “There is nothing to suggest that either the graphic novels issued during the war or the photographs taken during Rogers’ stay with the Howling Commandos can serve as a basis for a queer reading of Rogers and Barnes’ relationship. But even more importantly, there is nothing to suggest that such a relationship ever existed in the first place, and as such, those queer readings are not only misguided, but also libelous” (197).

    [from: Lynn E. Anderson, Captain America: Behind the Mask. Steve Rogers and the Contemporary Hero Narrative (New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2012), p. 242.]

    In the aftermath of Steve's return to the world of the living and the battle of New York, the academia and the Internet react.
