An absorbing and extremely well researched book!

On its surface, Super Soldiers sounds like an interesting read. Once you get started, you will not want to stop. Inman’s storytelling is wholly absorbing as he effortlessly goes back and forth between the history of military comic book characters to his own experiences in the US Army. The way he relates his personal anecdotes to some of the most popular, as well as a handful lesser-known, comic book characters was consistently fascinating. The guy knows his comics. I loved the author’s takes on the authenticity of the comic book stories and their characters as they related to the armed services. As a lifetime comic reader, it was intriguing to see beloved characters from a perspective that I had never considered. Reading Super Soldiers and then going back to read Captain America, Green Lantern, and the others discussed in this book can’t help but add an important layer to these characters. And that’s a good thing.

One hundred percent recommended.

Finished it in one night. I couldn't stop listening. What a great audiobook! I discovered a lot about our amazing heroes including the incredible author.

Jason Inman did a fantastic job of connecting these larger than life characters to the real life traits and values of those who serve. Eric Summerer's narration brings it all home with energy and emotion aplenty.

I recommend this to comic fans, service members, super heroes, or any combination of the above.
