    I'm not sure about linking to my own posts. It feels somewhat arrogant and self-aggrandizing.
    That being said, I did a little write up regarding Marvel's de-Nazification of The Red Skull for their Captain America animated series in the 60's.
    Hitler vs. The Leader.
    Also interesting to see the difference in Kirby's art to the animated series.

    @emonster: I'll have to check out the videos when I get home.

    Could the bowlderization simply have been an attempt to "modernize" the cartoons? I vaguely recall that "Cap" was stuck in deep freeze or something so he could have present-day adventures.

    When Captain America throws his mighty sheeeeeeld!

    I'm not sure if you can see the image. If not, say so.

    The series covered Cap's adventures during WWII, including the "death" of Bucky. His revival in the 60's is also shown in an episode called The Return of Captain America. The Avengers happen to be cruising around in a sub when they come across Cap floating in the ocean.
    I guess The Red Skull and The Leader could have been representatives of another axis power, instead of Germany. What side was Latveria on? HA.

    Ahhhh . . . if the Red Skull was introduced in the "historic" adventures, then "The Leader" certainly smacks of bowlderization.

    I need to catch up on "Cap's" backstory. One of those comics I never read as a kid.

    I've been posting updates sometimes in the Webcomics Week and Warren mentioned Secret Knots on his blog once.
    I'm glad you like the stories.

    @ magnusisasillyname - I was just about to wonder why nothing's been here about LulSec's antics. I heard about the Bethesda hack yesterday. Such a knock in the head with a Gibsonion mallet that it just feels right in temporality. I know we're a bunch of artists, writers, anarchists, and lovers of most things "out there", but how could we have missed the start of this by days?
