Marvel Comics has released Captain America: A Little Help, a free digital comic book available on its website and via the Marvel Comics App for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

The all-new, 11-page story—written by psychologist Tim Ursiny and illustrated by Nick Dragotta—features a despondent young man contemplating suicide by jumping off a building. After helping Captain America defeat villains battling on a nearby roof, the youth returns to his apartment and calls the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, uttering the only dialogue of the comic: "I need help."

Captain America: A Little Help is also available in the fifth and final issue of the "I Am an Avenger" limited series released January 12, 2011.
