    This sounds worth checking out. I like Immonen's writing, and tl'll be interesting to see Perez's work on Cap, after having known him mainly for his Kukuburi webcomic.

    Immonen is getting to be one of those writers whose work I avoid. Not that I don't like it, but it's just too all-over-the-place (I can't really think of the right word for it). She has some good ideas, but can't seem to tie them together in a coherent enough narrative IMO.

    That said, since this is just a one shot, I will get this issue. Hopefully Immonen will be more palatable when it's just one issue and not an entire mini.

    Zut alors!

    Who wears the beret more jauntily? Mademoiselle Marie or Peggy Carter?

    This is a must. Some of these specials don't look too interesting but this one grabs me.

    I am in total agreement Leocomix. I was particularly grabbed by the Falcon or Crossbones one-shots, but this one seems right up my alley. I loved the issues of "Captain America: Theater Of War" that dealt with Steve's WW2 history.

    The art looks spectacular. Why is Ramon Perez doing any other Marvel work? I'd love to see this style on the regular Cap title.

    so for me, the choice was really to see her as part of the continuum of women who were part of the French Resistance or the British SOE.
    Why can't Peggy Carter be part of the Office of Strategic Services?
    They recruited and sent women into enemy territory also.

    Yeah, this looks great! I love Kathryn, she's a great writer and Peggy is criminally underdeveloped. I'm also looking forward to the Agent 13/Black Widow one shot. All the others I don't care about.

    Not entirely sold on the art though. It would have been cooler to have more shadows and grit but oh well. Maybe if this takes off we'll hear more from Peggy!
