Daredevil #155-157 (November 1978-March 1979)

These three issues of Daredevil feature Captain America alongside the Avengers—including the Black Widow, who reunites with her old flame Daredevil while he's having some issues of his own (as he often does). Cap's involvement is scant but surprisingly significant, and if this Winghead post gets you interested in Hornhead, all the better! (I'll link... Continue Reading →

Invaders #29-31 (June-August 1978)

These three fill-in issues, written by future Invaders scripter Don Glut and drawn (with the exception of issue #31) by now-regular penciller Alan Kupperberg, contain little material relevant to Captain America's ethics, so this will be a quick post.

Kirby injects a science-fiction feel to his run, where... Continue Reading →

Invaders #1-4 (August 1975-January 1976)

Just two months after Giant-Size Invaders #1, the (mostly) monthly Invaders title began (the first two issues originally intended for a second giant-size comic). As I wrote in the post for the last issue (after some background regarding its origins), this series is heavy of the action and light on the moral dilemmas—this being an... Continue Reading →
