Fighting American: The Ties That Bind #1

   The classic Joe Simon and Jack Kirby-created hero, Fighting American, is back for another series of adventures, and the emphasis is on fun.

   The series is set in the present day as FA and his sidekick, Speedboy, continue their fight against some really offbeat villains (like Double Header, who actually has two heads) - many of them transplanted from the '50s to modern times, and all working to bring an end to the colorful heroes.

   But while problems are building behind the scenes, something else happens that threatens to break up the patriotic duo (though admittedly, it's pretty silly).

   Writer Gordon Rennie and artist Andie Tong are crafting another entertaining chapter that takes this series in some unexpected directions - and that's a good thing!

   (I think.)

Grade: B+
