Captain America #284 (August 1983)

This issue is the first of two "day in the life" issues, with Captain America dealing with more down-to-earth problems in both his professional and personal lives. But this shouldn't be taken to suggest that these are easy days for him—this is an incredibly heavy issue of Captain America, with plenty of emotional turmoil for... Continue Reading →

This issue concludes the three-part story of Captain America's battle against Viper and Constrictor, fighting alongside Jack Monroe, originally the Bucky of the 1950s but now operating as Nomad (Cap's brief identity after the Secret Empire episode), as well as S.H.I.E.L.D.

Captain America #276 (December 1982)

This issue picks up where the last one left off, following a violent confrontation between the neo-Nazi group holding a rally on Long Island and the Jewish Protection Organization who were protesting it, as well as Bernie Rosenthal realizing that Captain America is actually the man she loves, freelance artist Steve Rogers. We deal with... Continue Reading →

Captain America Annual #6 (November 1982)

This is a wild story that brings together the four men who have served as Captain America at this point in time. It is a spiritual successor to Jack Kirby's magisterial Bicentennial Battles from 1976, in which the enigmatic Mister Buda sent Captain America on a time-traveling adventure; it also capitalizes on Roy Thomas's exercise...
