Subj: Math doesn't add up IMO.

Reply Subj: Captain America #695 math

    So evidently Marvel is renumbering (again) the main Captain America title as they did with issue #600 some years ago; thus taking us back as if Tales of Suspense never ended; at least until the movies dictate otherwise.

    Question is, how does this all end up with 695 this time? There have been too many re-launches for me to keep up with.

Tales of Suspense #1-99
Captain America v1 #100-454
Captain America v2 #1-13 (#455-467)
Captain America v3 #1-50 (#468-517)
Captain America v4 #1-32 (518-549)
Captain America v5 #1-50 (550-599), #600-635
Captain America v6 #1-19 (#636-654)
Captain America v7 #1-25 (#655-679)

And then it just sort of falls apart
All New Captain America #1-6
Captain America: Sam Wilson #1-24
Captain America: Steve Rogers #1-19

After we get CA:SW #24 and CA:SR 19 we get Captain America #25 and then the next issue is Cap #695

679+6+24+19+2 = 730

If we exclude ANCA I get 724
If we exclude CA:SW I get 706
If we exclude CA:SR I get 711

If we exclude ANCA and CA:SW I get 700
If we exclude ANCA and CA:SR I get 705
If we exclude CA:SW and CA:SR I get 687

I didn't count:
1. Annuals
2. Limited series
3. One shots
4. Ongoing series that aren't the main title like Captain America and Falcon or Sentinel of Liberty
5. 0, 0.1, -1 issues or any kind of special numbered issue
