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)

As of this supersized issue of Avengers we arrive at the conclusion of the "Operation: Galactic Storm" event, and it does not disappoint—except for Captain America, who is very disappointed in the decisions taken by some of his fellow Avengers, which will have serious consequences for years to come (starting with next month's Captain America...

Avengers #346 and Iron Man #279 (April 1992)

"Operation: Galactic Storm" marches on with two more installments featuring Captain America, both featuring the subset of the team (including Cap and Iron Man) that is trying to talk to the Kree leadership in hopes of defusing the conflict between them and the Shi'ar that threatens Earth's sun. In Avengers #346, Cap strikes a very... Continue Reading →

Amazing Spider-Man #323-325 (November 1989)

Captain America becomes involved when the CIA is implicated in a political assassination, and... Continue Reading →

Avengers #304 (June 1989)

This issue is hardly significant, being a done-in-one fill-in, but it also comes between two longer storylines, and was published the same month as an important issue of Captain America, so it's most easily dealt with on its own. (Listen, they're not all going to be epic posts, OK?) It does feature a small group... Continue Reading →

Captain America #351 (March 1989)

This issue serves as an aftermath to last month's game-changing issue #350, a breather if you will, that reintroduces a beloved classic supporting character, reconnects Captain America with an old pal (and explains the recent tensions between them), and signals a change in the fortunes of one John Walker after his abbreviated term as the...

Captain America #341 (May 1988)

This issue follows up on the "disagreement" between Iron Man and the Captain in Iron Man #228 over Tony's ongoing campaign to reclaim or disable all of his tech in other people's hands, including the U.S. government, and by whatever means necessary. This is just one of many examples of Tony's utilitarian approach to ethical... Continue Reading →
