Captain America #258 (June 1981)

This issue returns us to Captain America's status quo in Brooklyn Heights after adventures and remembrances kept him in England since issue #253 (excepting the origin issue #255).

This issue concludes the story begun in the last issue in which Captain America returned to England to reunite with Lord Fallsworth (the original Union Jack from World War I) and Jackie Fallsworth (Spitfire from Cap's WWII team, the Invaders) to investigate mysterious murders that turned out to be the work of Lord Fallsworth's archfoe...

We also touch base with Steve Rogers's personal life, watching him as he looks for... Continue Reading →

Captain America #232 (April 1979)

This issue continues the story of racial hatred on the part of the Grand Director and his National Force begun in the last issue, including some very odd Dark Knightish behavior on the part of Captain America, a solid page of introspection on his part, and most immediate, an answer to the fate of Peggy...
