From the Back Cover:

WHO IS LADY LOTUS?

During WWII, the Invaders fought countless enemies. They beat back madmen like the Red Skull and Master Man time and again -- but there were those who fell under the radar. Captain America's one-time sidekick, Bucky -- having since taken up the shield himself -- knows one of them all too well. During the war, he and the Young Allies encountered the mistress of mind control, Lady Lotus, and barely escaped with their lives! Now, years later, Lotus has seemingly resurfaced. How has she managed to stay young all this time? What is amplifying her powers? With all the Young Allies long gone, it's up to Bucky to find out!

Plus: Action! Intrigue! Adventure! Discover the truth behind comics' original kid gang!

Collecting Captain America: Forever Allies #1-4 and Young Allies 70th Anniversary Special #1 -- written by ROGER STERN (Captain America); and illustrated by NICK DRAGOTTA (X-Men: First Class), MARCO SANTUCCI (Secret Invasion: The Amazing Spider-Man) and PAOLO RIVERA (Mythos).  And in a bonus backup, take a trip back to the Golden Age with 1941's Young Allies #1.

Review:

"Forever Allies is a good story that brings [the Young Allies] up to modern times, and re-introduces Lady Lotus quite well ... a great passing-the-torch tale." -- Jonathan Ryan

"Roger Stern and Paolo Rivera take up recent continuity where Bucky has become Captain America. When Bucky goes looking for the graves of his Young Allies comrades, he's stunned to learn two of them are still alive. This leads to a brilliant scene of Cap reconnecting with his old friends and  honoring a promise the Young Allies made together. Given that the Young Allies were a forgotten piece of Captain America backstory for the previous 60 years, this draws an incredible sense of pathos for these people who, in the absence of Cap and Bucky, just went on with their lives." -- Michael Hoskin

"Captain America: Forever Allies was absolutely amazing! Go out and buy [it] right now!" -- Ben Herman

"Well-thought-out way to wink at the original [Young Allies] without having the cringeworthy elements being completely dismissed." -- Travis Pelkie

"I love Roger Stern. Whenever I hear he's written a comic, I go out of my way to pick it up." -- John Trumbull

"Great art and and incredibly touching take on the whole Man-out-of-time angle that you rarely actually get seen in Cap stories anymore." -- Brian Cronin
