Captain America #233 (May 1979)

As we continue the story, begun in issue #231, of Captain America fighting the white nationalist Grand Director and his National Front, we finally learn the identity of the person behind the hate movement (who was glimpsed in silhouette in the last issue) as well as a hint as to who the Grand Director himself...

Invaders #34-37 (November 1978-February 1979)

These four issues focus heavily on other heroes, so there is little Captain America content at all (much less ethically interesting content), but there is other material of interest concerning the other characters and history of the day, so full speed ahead! Issue #34 begins with the Invaders receiving distressing news about a colleague and... Continue Reading →

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 #32-33 (September-October 1978)

These two issues introduce a familiar face to the World War II era: the mighty Thor, visiting Midgard (Earth) as he had been doing for centuries, but rarely this close to his eventual banishment there in the form of Dr. Donald Blake in August 1962's Journey into Mystery #83. We also meet another familiar face—albeit... Continue Reading →

Avengers #164-166, Super-Villain Team-Up #14, Avengers Annual #7, and Marvel Two-in-One Annual #2 (October-December 1977)

Once again, this batch of six comics contains only patchy Captain America content—much less ethically interesting content—so I'm doing them all in one post. The three Avengers issues comprise a single story pencilled by John Byrne, who would soon begin his legendary run on The Uncanny X-Men with writer Chris Claremont, later to return to...

Captain America Annual #3 (1976)

Amongst the 22 regular issues of Captain America that Jack Kirby write and drew in 1976 and 1977, he also produced two annuals and the massive Bicentennial Battles Treasury Edition. (If you think this is a lot of output, consider that this was not the only book Jack was writing and drawing at the time.)... Continue Reading →
