Captain America #180

Cover pencils by Gil Kane, inks by Mike Esposito. First appearance and origin of Nomad (Steve Rogers) in "The Coming of the Nomad!", script by Steve Englehart, pencils by Sal Buscema, inks by Vince Colletta; Steve Rogers creates the new costumed identity of Nomad for himself; Madame Hydra kills the original Viper taking his name and his costume and reforms the Serpent Squad; Nomad is unable to stop the Squad from kidnapping the president of Roxxon; Krang is revealed as Viper's partner in the reformation of the Serpent Squad; The Falcon encounters Roscoe who is looking for Steve Rogers to train him as the new Captain America. The letters page has Marvel Value Stamp series A #61 (The Red Ghost).



WHAT IS THIS!?.... Im missing this Issue! Say it ain't so!

Ive had a few opportunities to acquire the book, as I don't believe it to be all that rare. While it is considered to be a Key book, but I always felt it was kind of a bogus 1st appearance of Nomad.
While technically it is, but its just Cap in disguise. I just haven't been willing to lay down the money for a book I feel is over priced. I know I will have to break down a bite the bullet at some point.

Captain America #181

Cover pencils by Gil Kane, inks by Joe Sinnott. Intro and origin of the new Cap (Roscoe) in "The Mark of Madness!", script by Steve Englehart, pencils by Sal Buscema, inks by Vince Colletta; Nomad fights the Serpent Squad and Krang, under the thrall of the Serpent Crown, to stop them from using a Roxxon oil platform to raise Lemuria to the surface. Roscoe becomes Captain America; Nick Fury cameo. Letter to the editor from comics writer Mark Gruenwald. The letters page also contains Marvel Value Stamp series A #46 (Mysterio).





Now that's how you do a kick ass cover! It doesn't even matter that it's not Steve Rogers, Gil Kane and Joe Sinnott just killed it on that cover!

This was a book I cracked out of a CGC 9.2 slab. I felt the book was most certainly under graded.

Let's stop here for now and just admire that Gil Kane cover for awhile longer

Captain America #182

Roscoe continues as the new Captain America in "Inferno!" Script by Steve Englehart, pencils by Frank Robbins, inks by Joe Giella. Red Skull cameo. Letter to the editor from comics publisher Dean Mullaney. The letters page also contains Marvel Value Stamp series A # 36 (Ancient One from Doctor Strange by Steve Ditko). Ron Wilson/Frank Giacoia cover




Ron Wilson turns in another fine cover that conveys the storyline. Ive always praised the Steve Englehart run on the title, but the whole Cap quitting only to reappear in a different costume as "Nomad" really didn't engross me into the storyline. Maybe that is partially the reason I have yet to obtain Issue #180. I just don't believe the whole Cap as Nomad is all that Key of a book.

Captain America #183

Death of the new Cap (Roscoe); Nomad (Steve Rogers) becomes Cap again in "Nomad: No More!" Script by Steve Englehart, pencils by Frank Robbins, inks by Frank Giacoia. Gil Kane/Joe Sinnott cover





Thankfully the whole "Cap/Nomad" storyline comes to a welcome end here in this issue. Also coming to an unfortunate end is Sal Buscema's long run as the regular artist on the cap title, although he does contribute on some cover art, as well as some fill in work.

Not all is negative here on this issue, Roscoe goes bye bye and his fate is forever captured by the great Gil Kane and Joe Sinnott.


This issue I believe also marks a turning point on the Captain America Title. King Kirby is Coming!

Captain America #184


The real Captain America is back in action in "Cap's Back!" Script by Steve Englehart, pencils by Herb Trimpe, inks by Frank Giacoia and Mike Esposito. Letter to the editor from comics publisher Dean Mullaney. Gil Kane/John Romita Sr. cover





The whole Steve Rogers quitting and becoming Nomad with a disappointing storyline for me. But NOW CAP is BACK!, and so is the Red Skull! Things start to get shook up a bit with the creative team as Frank Giacoia inks the legendary Herb Trimpe pencils. Englehart gets back to the basics with a great Red Skull story line over the next few issues. The cherry on the top is added by yet another classic action packed cover from the master, Gil Kane, this time aided by the talents of John Romita!

Let us again pause a moment to admire that awesome Cap Cover....

Captain America #187

Cover pencils by Gil Kane, inks by John Romita. "The Madness Maze!", script by John Warner, pencils by Frank Robbins, inks by Frank Chiaramonte; Captain America, Gabe, and Peggy gather around a knocked out Falcon; Cap gets whisked away by a mysterious flying craft and deposited in a giant maze;. A loud voice welcomes Cap to the Madness Maze, telling him that when he reaches the center of the maze he'll die; As he moves through the maze a trio of artificial creatures attacks.

Another Great Gil Kane Cover! Cap sure has found his way into one hell of a Dog pile! A very nice book and I would have graded it a bit higher if not for the slightly off centered cover.
