Captain America #402-403 (July 1992)

These two issues launch the summer of 1992's six-part biweekly storyline, "Man and Wolf"—and if you don't know what this, you can all too easily guess. It's not a particularly ethically deep story—especially compared to the last issue—but we still find things to discuss, more so in the first half than the second (which we'll... Continue Reading →

Captain America #401 (June 1992)

This issue of Captain America serves as a coda to the "Operation: Galactic Storm" event that started in issue #398 and ended in last month's Avengers #347. It's also one of the most significant comics we've covered so far at this blog—and if you've been following along in recent posts, you can guess why. After... Continue Reading →

Avengers #347 and Thor #447 (May 1992)

In Avengers #346, Cap strikes a very... Continue Reading →

Captain America #399 (April 1992)

This issue launches the second monthly round of "Operation: Galactic Storm," a storyline that began in the last issue and, amidst all the high-stakes outer-space action, gradually reveals some ethical disagreements between Captain America and his fellow Avengers, especially Iron Man. Speaking of Tony, in our last installment, he surrendered to the Kree on behalf... Continue Reading →

Avengers #345 and Iron Man #278 (March 1992)

We continue the "Operation: Galactic Storm" storyline with the month's installments of Avengers and Iron Man. (Thor #445, the last comic in the rotation this month, does not feature Captain America at all, which is simply incomprehensible.) With these two issues we see some more significant disagreements between Cap and the rest of his teammates... Continue Reading →
